Holidays are just around the corner, but my personal calendar always has a star on the date of October 15 — the beginning of Stone Crab Season. Among other fine dining venues, Christy’s is a dependable place to find this fresh South Florida delicacy in Coral Gables.

Robert and Robin Burr

The Old Man & the Gun at Gables Cinema
Robert Redford brings to the screen the rollicking true life of Forrest Tucker, from his audacious escape from San Quentin at age 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. See it at Gables Cinema this weekend. Call 786-385-9689 or visit the web site for details.
