Frankie briefly deserts Dee Dee in favor of pop star Sugar Kane . Also around and about is a mermaid, appropriately named Lorelei . I also gave a quick spotcheck to a couple of diners here, both of which seemed cotentedly stuck in another era. The first, called Anglin’s and perched at the entrance to the pier, was really just five unpadded, aqua booths, open to the beach and the sea.
I stayed at the modest but adequate Villas-By-The-Sea here, just a stone’s throw from the town dock, off of which lots of people were casting their reels. The museum also has a virtual fishing room, in which visitors can grab a pole whose line sweeps across fake water to a TV screen. After pushing the start button, a fish in water appears on the screen and starts “tugging” at the line, the start of a fierce battle between human and pretend fish that, in the case of big guys like the marlins, can mean lots of cussing and sweating. Toward the ocean, Las Olas crosses over the Intracoastal Waterway, which, along with several canals, creeks, rivers, lakes and channels, transforms much of Fort Lauderdale into a series of islands and spits. A great way to see it all is by water taxi, for which an all-day pass costs just $16. All you have to do is call 20 or so minutes ahead of your desired pick-up time — or you can just hail a passing cab from any dock along the Intracoastal.

A tuna sandwich here came with iced tea and “wedding soup” (so called, said the bottle-blonde waitress, because the noodles in it were shaped like wedding bands — which they weren’t) for $8.50. Along with the ocean breezes, the best thing about this place were the wall menus, which featured paintings of food items dressed up like humans. Inside, old-timers wander the exhibit areas, gently collaring visitors and regaling them with big-catch stories. I wandered around for a while with one of those volunteers, a man named Sam. “Ova 50 yeahs, my wife fished right along besad me,” he said in his Florida drawl, as he gently guided me toward a side gallery decorated to look like an old fishing lodge.

Until April 2,Four Generations of Pissarro showcases 60 works by the French impressionist, and another 60 by three generations of his descendants. Pissarro-themed events are concurrently being staged by the Florida Grand Opera and the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. And from Feb. 29 to May 30, the Museum of Art will be hosting an exhibiton of works by Dutch-American painter Willem de Kooning. And here, since long before the first hosers burped their first beer burps, is the Riverside Hotel. Even better than the main courses here are the $5.95 (U.S.) wild-mushroom-puff hors d’ouevres, curried and served with pineapple sauce.
This list was inspired by me watching the movie “Miracle Beach” yesterday. Please allow additional time if international delivery is subject to customs processing. Throw in a lovesick biker, Eric Von Zipper and a mermaid and Beach Blanket Bingo is pure comic confection. The 5th of American International’s classic Beach Party films. Take Las Olas Boulevard, which begins at the beach ( las olas is Spanish for “the waves”) and winds parallel to the New River. With stores that stay open well into the night, Los Olas has the feel of smalltown main street, albeit with higher-end establishments than you would normally find in most small towns. Mischief, for instance, has cutting-edge kids’ clothing and one-of-a-kind stuffed toys. Shades of Light sells enormous deco lamps with even more enormous hand-painted glass shades. In the window of Bellies and Buttons, which specializes in maternity wear, is a tasteful little black dress, worthy of Jackie Kennedy but perhaps better suited to the very fertile Ethel.
