Fort Lauderdale Sunday Jazz Brunch

ft lauderdale jazz

One of my favorite things to do in Fort Lauderdale is the monthly Sunday Jazz Brunch. The Jazz Brunch takes place on the first Sunday of each month along the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk. Local jazz musicians perform between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm on three different stages. This is great because you can kick back and enjoy your favorite local band, or wander from stage to stage sampling some of the best jazz talent South Florida has to offer. There are always plenty of local restaurants there so you can find plenty to eat, or you can bring a cooler with your own food. It is really a nice way to enjoy a Sunday relaxing, eating and people watching.

Pier Draws Tourists Wih LED Lights

The coastal town of Fulton, TX is looking into installing LED lights to one of the towns biggest attractions, their 1,058 foot long pier. Fulton Town Council members are considering a plan to replace the mercury vapor lights that illuminate the pier with solar powered LED lights. The LED lights will cost between $15,000 and $30,000, but will save the pier between 80% – 90% on it’s lighting bill. In addition, the Town Council is considering adding blue underwater led lights to the pier.

‘Brown Rot’ Attacks Florida Docks

A brown fungus, first discovered in 2009,  is attacking Florida docks, golf cart bridges and other outdoor structures made of CCA treated wood.  Chromated copper arsenate  preasure treated wood, or CCA for short, was widely used to build boat docks  and other outdoor structures before it was taken off of the market in 2004. Production of CCA wood  was stopped because it contains arsenic, but now  it is also coming under attack from a fungus known as dock fungus or brown rot fungus. The fungus first turns black in color, and then orange and, if left untreated, will deteriorate the wood literally eating all the way to the heart of the wood leaving it  structurally unsound. The good news is if caught in time, the fungus can be removed and the wood treated to prevent further damage.
