He made it through the first round! But it will be awhile until we know whether Carl King is a keeper on The Bachelorette. We’re just happy we get to watch him again next week. The tatted-out firefighter who lives in the Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale area appears ready for the long haul. According to his bio on ABC.com: He’s 30, six foot three and loves his American bulldog, Archie. On his Facebook page you see a picture of King with his arm around his adorable pup on the beach. Oh, and King’s favorite flower is a lotus, not a rose. Hmm.
A lot at steak
Make sure you eat a light breakfast Wednesday if you stop by Beer 360. The craft beer bar and steakhouse in Sunny Isles Beach is throwing a grand opening event and swears it is offering free, three-ounce servings of the signature picanha steak (aka top sirloin cap) from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Grab a $3 draft to wash that meat down. There will be live entertainment starting at 2 p.m., and two-time Super Bowl champ and Fort Lauderdale native Asante Samuel on site for the 6:15 p.m. ribbon-cutting. The party rages until 2 a.m., so maybe just plan on calling in full to work the next day. You do not have to RSVP to attend, but if you don‘t believe this deal is true, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 561-750-3500. Beer 360: 18090 Collins Ave.; 305-466-4599.
