Maybe your New Year's resolution includes getting a little more culture in your life.  Here are my top pics for this weekend!

1) Finding Neverland - West Palm Beach

What is it?
If you've ever wondered, "Who comes up with this stuff?"  Well, this thought is the plot of the musical; how the playwright came up with the storyline and characters of the classic Peter Pan fairytale.  

As an added bonus John Davidson plays the character that inspires the creation of Captain James Hook. I remember him as the host of Hollywood Squares (I know he has done other things).

The Deets
Kravis Center
January 2 - 7
Tickets start at $28 plus taxes and fees

2) Polo  - Wellington

What is it?
Polo season is back! This is a really fun time, and a great way to see world-class polo or just socialize.  You dress as laid-back as you'd like or you can get as fancy as you want (think Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman). If you want to really "up" your polo game you should try Sunday Brunch at polo (its a party for sure).

3) Save the Panther 5K

What is it?

4) Comedian Jo Koy - West Palm Beach

What is it?
Jo is hysterical, every time I've run into him he has funny tales about his adolescent son. He's funny and delightful in person and on stage.  He loves to crack jokes about the stereotypes from his American/ Filipino heritage.

5) Chris Rock - Hollywood

What is it?
Emmy and Grammy Award-winning comedian Chris Rock is back on tour after nine years!  This is his "Total Blackout Tour".  Speaking of blackout, phones, and electronic watches are not allowed.  If you bring them, you'll have to put them in a little pouch during the show.  You can get access to them at stations around the venue.
