This past week, while on tour for his newest children’s book, “I Am George Washington,” bestselling local author Brad Meltzer made his own history as he and the team from his History Channel TV show revealed that they'd found and recovered the missing 9/11 flag that the firefighters raised at Ground Zero. All of it culminated with Meltzer unveiling the flag at its permanent home, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York.
Meltzer even got congratulations from President George H.W. Bush. So how’d he celebrate? The writer surprised the investigators who authenticated the flag by buying them tickets to see the Broadway hit “Hamilton.” “The play is about legacy and history,” said. “My two favorite subjects.” Meltzer’s historical find was told in an hourlong TV special that airs Sunday on “History: The 9/11 Flag: Rise from the Ashes.”
With season 4 of one of Bravo’s most popular shows setting sail last Tuesday night, the cast of “Below Deck” gathered to watch in the lounge of the Wyndham Grand Jupiter hotel. In addition to raising thousands of dollars for the Palm Beach chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the charitable night was full of fun.
Despite having arrived with his wife in tow, so called Stud of the Sea Captain Lee seemed to be the big star of the evening, with no less than three Palm Beach socialites attempting to flirt with him right in front of Mrs. Captain Lee, aka Mary Ann.
