After Dark in the Park, Dr. Seuss.

Long before Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen came onto the scene, children were infatuated by Dr. Seuss’ stories of the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, and the curmudgeonly Grinch. Beginning January 17, fans of all ages can rediscover Theodor Seuss Geisel’s magical worlds of make believe when “The Art of Dr. Seuss” takes center stage at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens (561-622-2115). The public exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Ann Jackson Gallery and features 140 pieces by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author and illustrator, including limited-edition works, life-size bronzes, and whimsical taxidermy sculptures. On Saturdays and Sundays, visitors will be treated to live performances of Seussical courtesy of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Oh, how lucky we are.

Steak houses are popping up all over, but only this one has an ocean view and an alfresco vibe. The Saturday night popup at AB&G at the Four Seasons Palm Beach offers delectable steak on the edge—the ocean’s edge, that is. For maximum flavor, be sure to ask about the house made rubs.

“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!”
Beginning January 17, The Gardens Mall will become the Seussiest destination since the Jungle of Nool when it hosts “The Art of Dr. Seuss.” Follow suit with the Cat in the Hat and inject some Seuss into your look. Strut along Mulberry Street in these rainbow polka-dot cork lace-up flats ($825), sandals ($775), and heels ($875) from the Edgardo Osorio for Salvatore Ferragamo collection.

On January 9, commune with wildlife while completing some cardio at the Palm Beach Zoo’s third annual Save the Panther 5k (561-547-9453). Participants will race past some of the zoo’s top attractions like Tiger River, Siamang Island, and the wallaby viewing station. The race is part of the zoo’s three-run Big Cat Race Series—which also includes the Save the Tiger 5k on May 14 and the Save the Jaguar 5k on September 3—and net proceeds go toward field projects that work to save these amazing creatures and their habitats.
