The Sunday Jazz Brunch is a free event in downtown Fortlauderdale every first sunday of the month. It runs from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Very easy to get to. Very easy to park. Usually some pretty good bands. Always mellow fun. I've gone about 8 times. Originally by accident. I just grabbed a seat in the shade and sat a while. The last time I was prepared. If you want to look like a pro, just park in the garage right across the street. Bring your beach umbrella and chairs. Suntan lotion is a good idea. Pack a picinic basket with you favorite cheese, fruit, and wine (everyone does). Champagne and Orange Juice is popular too. Sit back and relax.
After the show, take in the local sites. If you brought the kids, the Museum of Discovery and Science is right there. The Imax also. A short walk away are plenty of resturarants or just stroll along the River Walk. Check the web site for this Sunday's lineup.
