Nice spread

Difficult as it may be: Look past Rob Lowe on the cover of Cigar Aficionado and check out the inside story on local power player Facundo Bacardi. The 47-year-old is the great-great-grandson of Bacardi founder Don Facundo Bacardi Massó, has been chairman of the board of the rum company since 2005, and loves a good stogie.

Get motivated

Seen the Oscar-nominated movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio? Now’s your chance to meet the real “Wolf of Wall Street.” Jordan Belfort is embarking on the so-called The Truth Behind His Success tour. The disgraced stockbroker — who served 22 months for securities fraud and money-laundering — has turned motivational speaker and wants to help you. But the sleekster is not making money off this tour. Belfort says in a release that he will give 100 percent of all profits back to investors who lost money during his reign at the Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in the late ’80s and early ’90s as restitution. Belfort’s two local stops are Sept. 17 at the Au Rene Theater in Fort Lauderdale and Sept. 18 at the James L. Knight Performing Arts Center. Info/tickets: www.wolfofwallstreettour.com.
