The roller-skating culture in Tallahassee is livelier and more diverse than most residents of the city might assume. If you’re at all familiar with the Capital City’s roller-skating scene, whether engaging in the activity as a pastime or a serious hobby, then you know of Skate World on Capital Circle. Fun-seeking skaters of all ages and skill levels come to this venue, where a different event is hosted each day of the week. Vernon Bailey, a 73-year-old and very adept skater, visits the venue every Thursday for one of Skate World’s most bustling events — Adult Night. Bailey is originally ..read more

The Basis of Community
Tallahassee Magazine

Successful communities are made up of relationships among people and businesses who respect one another and mutually benefit from their complementary strengths. These relationships also serve to perpetuate a small-town feel that contributes much to the quality of life in our part of Florida. I have observed that in much of the state south of Ocala, businesses have become “all business” and people in general are less likely to engage in their communities and neighborhoods. That is not necessarily wrong. It is just what some areas evolve to become. This issue of Tallahassee Magazine includ ..read more

For many, lamb is as synonymous with Easter as chocolate bunnies or colored eggs. After all, lamb, for many, symbolizes the body of Christ. But eating the tastiest of traditions can become tiresome. That’s why many people deep fry or smoke turkeys on Thanksgiving instead of roasting them. If you are seeking something different this Easter, there are several ways to refresh your relationship with lamb. Skylar Stafford, the chef at The Huntsman, recommends making a lamb tagine. Not only is this braised dish simpler to prepare than a traditional lamb roast, it’s also healthier, more flavorf ..read more

Of  all the different types of footwear, sneakers have had the most revolutionary journey and are arguably the most versatile. What began as a shoe with the sole purpose of sports courts are now perfectly acceptable to wear to work. Some even don sneakers at weddings. During the 18th century, the Industrial Revolution brought about many inventions, one being vulcanized rubber. Thus, the rubber-soled shoe was born. These shoes, called plimsolls in England, were used for recreational activities and faired particularly well on tennis courts. Hence, the Americanized title “tennis shoes ..read more

Luck is a fickle thing, but for alum Danny Burgos, it is something you can create. Burgos graduated from Florida State in 2015 with a degree in music theater. Since then, he’s performed in the national Broadway touring productions of Beauty and the Beast; The Band’s Visit; On Your Feet!; and, currently, Moulin Rouge! The Musical. When reflecting on his resume, he can’t help but feel “lucky.” “I know a lot of people don’t like to call it luck because it implies you didn’t work very hard,” Burgos said. “But one of my favorite quotes is, ‘Luck is when preparation meets opportunity,’ and I think ..read more

Florida is  long — 447 miles long. Driving from South Florida to Tallahassee typically takes seven to eight hours if traffic is light, I-75 is not backed up for miles due to a pile up and you don’t make any pit stops. It’s a taxing trip, but one countless people make every year. To help ease the burden for those intrastate travelers, JetBlue started offering daily, nonstop flights between Tallahassee International Airport (TLH) and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) in January. “I am beyond elated that Broward residents have another option to travel to our state c ..read more
