Lenny Kravitz talks about his favorite places to play


If you want to spot Lenny Kravitz around town, he’s giving you a few hints in the new issue of Ocean Drive.

The singer, who graces the cover of the glossy October 2013 Men’s Issue in a sharp gray suit and signature frames, mentions some of his favorite local hangouts and things to do.

By day, you’ll catch him grabbing caffeine at Panther Coffee in Wynwood, then getting a healthy jolt at JugoFresh in Miami Beach. “That’s my spot,” the actor-musician-designer says of the cold pressed juice bar. “That’s where my day starts and ends.”

Where is former Miami Dolphin Jimmy Cefalo spending his 57th birthday Sunday? Where you’d expect: Surrounded by all things football-related at the home matchup vs. the Baltimore Ravens at Sun Life Stadium.

The radio personality and business partner Brenda Bassett will be throwing a little shindig at their Cefalo’s Legends Suite. Want to join the fun? Tickets are $600 for suite holders. Once inside, you can sample eats by Edward Lee from Top Chef season 9 and famed Louisville, Ky., restaurant 610 Magnolia (chefs rotate home game to home game).

Cake with candles? Doubtful, says Cefalo.

“It’s just another year, it doesn’t matter much.”

As for the Fins’ chances? Good, predicts the married father of three. “I think they will bounce back with a good crowd behind them.”

For more information on how to get access to Cefalo’s Legends Suite, email Howard Dorland at, call 305-623-6200 or go to and do a search for “Premium Seating.”

Enrique Iglesias’ Bay Point mansion is gone, gone, gone! The singer-songwriter sold the custom built, waterside spot at 4411 Sabal Palm Road for $6,722,500, reports EWM Realty/Christie’s International Real Estate, which conducted the sale. The buyer? Anonymous. The two-story, 6,400-square-foot, five bedroom estate was built by Iglesias in 1998; three years later he began dating Anna Kournikova, after she appeared with him in his sexy Escape video. The couple have made the waterside place one of their love nests for many years; earlier this week, Page Six reported the relationship was on the skids.


Who needs NYC and LA?, a site that gives information about how much you’ll pay for housing around the U.S., has compiled a list of the Top 10 cities where famous people are most likely to be spotted. Miami made it in at No. 7, due to “star-studded events around the year” including Art Basel, Ultra Music Fest, SoBe Food & Wine and Mercedes Benz Swim Week.”

Also: Miami’s “famed beaches, five-star hotels, nightclubs and celebrity-chef owned restaurants make the city a celebrity playground.” Doesn’t that make you feel better about sitting in traffic now?
