Here's an opportunity you don't get every day -- "get lit" with the mayor of Fort Lauderdale.
Unfortunately, the November 18 event appears to be related to turning on Christmas lights, not getting wasted with Mayor Jack Seiler -- which is sort of a letdown.
Apparently, Riverwalk Trust and the City of Fort Lauderdale decided to name an event with children's events and the mayor "Get Lit."
If the city ever builds something out of bricks or rocks, it better throw a "get stoned" party with the mayor or this is bogus.
Regardless, you can get lit with the mayor from 5 to 9 p.m. November 18 at Esplanade Park -- and you may or may not be disappointed, based on the city's interpretation of getting lit.
Mayor Seiler is expected to light up (Fort Lauderdale) at 6 p.m. that day.
