Local contestant Carl King sizzles on ‘The Bachelorette’


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 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 or call 561-750-3500. Beer 360: 18090 Collins Ave.; 305-466-4599.
