Nov. 11 is Hometown Heroes Eat Free Day during which veterans, active military personnel and first responders eat free all day with a valid ID. Finally, the grand opening is Nov. 12 with a public ribbon-cutting featuring Doral and Sweetwater officials, members of Doral Chamber of commerce, founders of In Jacob’s Shoes as well as free tastings.

Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream (Chill-N) at 3415 Main Highway, Coconut Grove

Opening soon to the delight of sweet lovers in South Miami-Dade is the eighth location of South Florida’s first and largest liquid nitrogen ice cream brand. The store will feature a softer color palette, more lighting and a modern edge designed to highlight the ingredients while showcasing the entire nitrogen ice cream process. Customers are an active part of the process: they choose a portion size, ice cream base and flavor before adding a variety of toppings (candy, cookies, cereal, fruit, sauces, nuts and even Cuban coffee). Each scoop of ice cream is hand-crafted to order and flash frozen on the spot using liquid nitrogen at a startling -320° Fahrenheit.


Shady Distillery at 616 NW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale

Located in 20,000 square feet beside the Sistrunk Marketplace & Brewery, which opened in September, the Shady Distillery’s theme is inspired by Florida’s long history of controversy, and suspect events. The Distillery reflects on all those considered shady and will be creating craft spirits inspired by these shady moments in time. Some of the first batches from head distiller Jonny VerPlanck include “Shady” Vodka, seven times distilled from corn and gluten free and carb free with no sweeteners or additives, and “‘RECOUNT 2020” Vodka. Up next, “Shady” Experience Tasting Tours and small-batch custom labeling for the holidays.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
