Last night (11-12-15) was splendid, so Karen and I took the boat to 15th Street Fisheries for dinner. On the way home the lure of holiday lights and Christmas themed jazz caused us to dock by Esplanade Park in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. We had stumbled onto “GET LIT,” which is the beginning of our City’s ten-week celebration kicking off the holiday season.

This is Ft. Lauderdale, so the family-friendly event had a fully stocked “Get Lit” bar.
Nothing says Christmas like lit up palm trees and no snow!
I channel my inner elf.
Karen tells Santa, “I’ve been a good girl.” We think Bad Santa was a little lit himself.
The Broward Center Spotlights and the Bobby Rodriguez Orchestra played some awesome arrangements of Christmas classics to a sparse crowd.
