Marlins Watch Party

If you are looking for a place to watch the game tonight with fellow Marlins fans, the Rivals Waterfront Sports Grille is the place to be.

Fans can watch the Marlins away games, meet Billy the Marlin and the Marlins Mermaids and participate in raffles for tickets to home games and autographed game-used memorabilia; free. 877-MARLINS:

* vs. Chicago White Sox: 8:11 p.m., Rivals Waterfront Sports Grille, 3460 South Ocean Dr., Hollywood.

If for some reason you can't make that or get the Marlins game on your television set or computer screen, for whatever reason, there is a French movie festival happening the area.  The only reason I bring this to light is that I generally love French films.  I don't always understand them, but I find them interesting.

The annual event presented by the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) features screenings of French films spanning five decades plus top new films. All screenings are in French with English subtitles, unless otherwise noted. FAST passes allow access to all films and parties; Cinema Paradiso, 503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale; $8, $7 seniors and students, $5 FLIFF members, $140 FAST passes, $85 members. 954-525-3456 or go to
  • The Girl in the Bikini, black-and-white film about an island girl who meets a young law student on the island to seek the ancient treasure in the surrounding seas: 6 p.m.
  • Gross Fatigue, film stars French actor Michel Blac, who stars as himself. In the film, Blac is impersonated by a con man: 8 p.m.

But if you have to choose one over the other, I would go with the Marlins.  But if you can't make it to the sports bar but can make it to the film festival, I would be interested in knowing why.  I mean, let's face it, Hollywood isn't that far from Fort Lauderdale.
