It’s that time of year again — when the Miami HEAT dancers take the attention away from the star basketball players with the launch of their super sizzling posters, with various images shot in the Bahamas by team photographer David Alvarez. Lithe ladies wearing only red string bikinis in the middle of December? Seems appropriate around these parts. Said posters were handed out to the audience at the game vs. the Toronto Raptors Friday night and will be scattered about the AmericanAirlines Arena for locals’ viewing pleasure for the rest of the season.
DOING HER PART
M*A*S*H legend Loretta Swit will be honored for her humanitarian efforts at this year’s 59th International Red Cross Ball, to be held Feb. 6, 2016, at The Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach. The actress, aka Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan, will celebrate the history of American Red Cross nurses at the event. “I believe good actions promote better actions, and that is how we change the world,” Swit said in a release. “I hope [the gala] can encourage America’s youth to enter into a career that will help change someone’s life.” For more information on tickets or sponsorships, contact Jennifer Whitaker at 561-650-9105 or Jennifer.Whitaker@redcross.org.
QUICK & DIRTY
John Waters, aka the Pope of Trash, was seen having a glass of white wine at a meet and greet at the Cafe at Books & Books Monday night right after putting the “X” in Xmas in his one-man show, A John Waters Christmas: Holier & Dirtier, at The Knight Concert Hall. The Hairspray director was overheard telling people he had a small part in Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip.
