Tick! Tock! Time Flies… Introducing…



Tick! Tock! Time Flies…And you’ve waited until the, yes, LastMinute to make your plans.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. Discover the rewards of not planning ahead. The “pros” of procrastination. At LastMinute Lauderdale, when time flies you can climb aboard and let it take you someplace great.

Have you noticed that many good deals “pop” up at the last minute and stay alive for only a brief time? The chef’s “fresh from the market” special at your favorite restaurant, a hot “stay-cation” weekend package at a luxurious beach resort, a special price on the last few tickets to a wonderful charity black-tie event or day-of tickets to a sold out show, mid-week two-for-one treatments at a fabulous spa or a tonight-only promotion at an exciting night spot. Of course, let’s not ignore a good old fashioned half-off sale at a trendy boutique.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to be everywhere at once, so the majority of these deals will expire without you even knowing about them. That’s bad for you, and bad for the merchant. But now, the LastMinute Community can be your eyes and ears, hipping you to all the best now-or-never local deals.

Our Mission: Connect the Community and Create Opportunity.

LastMinute Lauderdale is a social network helping people share great, time-sensitive opportunities with each other and enabling merchants to inform their customers about special “LastMinute” offers. By sharing these “expiring experiences” we help people discover hidden opportunities, maybe save some money and create a following for our local businesses. LastMinute Lauderdale is a central point to get the word out at, like the name says, the last minute.

How does it work?

Members of the community from all over the greater Fort Lauderdale area can share the details of the deals they uncover in their daily lives by posting them in a Tick!-it.

Merchants can use LastMinute Lauderdale to instantly connect with their customers and post spontaneous specials they may not have planned on or that may be in short supply.

Non-profits can announce events, auction items or their last few event tickets to a larger community than they can normally reach. The possibilities are endless and the guiding principle is to share information for the benefit of everyone.

You benefit by getting to browse through our in-flight Tick!-its and take advantage of the ones that catch your interest. And when you run across a great limited time offer that deserves to be shared, you can give back to the community by submitting the details in your own Tick!-it.

Writing a Tick!-it costs nothing (unless you choose to unlock additional posting features by joining as a Contributing Member), doesn’t take long and allows you to spread the word about your favorite merchants and deals. By submitting a Tick!-it you’re joining the LastMinute Crew, and helping to determine the content and direction of LastMinute Lauderdale. When you write a Tick!-it on LastMinute Lauderdale, click on the Dig It and Did It buttons or comment on your favorite Tick!-its you’re promoting opportunities that support your local community. Tick!-its submitted by the LastMinute Community are moderated to ensure they conform to the LastMinute spirit.

As the flock of Tick!-its grows, it will exponentially increase the odds that you’ll find out about some great offers that you wouldn’t want to miss. At the same time, it vastly increases the audience for a merchant who’s got something special to offer.

How do you get started? Simple:

Step 1. Help Yourself! Browse our in-flight Tick!-its and discover now-or-never local deals, specials, events and fleeting offers. Crowdsourced and shared by the LastMinute community and our Contributing Members.

Step 2. Help Others by sharing, liking and commenting on your favorite Tick!-its. And when you find that fab deal, first-class meal or smashing event, be the first to spread the word. Write your own Tick!-it and submit it!

Connection Update: Dessert at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six



IF you are in downtown Fort Lauderdale, stop over at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six for dinner, dessert or a late night bite at THE LOUNGE.

The new menu is fantastic. Our favorite dessert is the Key Lime Pudding Pie!

Located in the resort’s lobby, The Lounge offers a casual yet upscale/modern living room ambiance complete with comfortable custom-designed, retro-curved chairs, sofas and chaise lounges. The bar features a façade of mother-of-pearl shell tile, and  sits just high enough off the lobby to offer views of the lushly landscaped pool and courtyard. The retro 60′s style Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six is my favorite hotel.

So the next time you are downtown near the 17th Street Causeway area, check them out.

For all things Food & Wine in South Florida…check out Christine’s blog!
