Steps away from the sand, inside Fort Lauderdale's Yankee Clipper Hotel lurks a passageway into the underwater world of magical mermaids. Once inside the Wreck Bar, you'll forget that you just walked through a hotel lobby. Dripping in nautical garb, the room is lined in fishtanks, and a bit reminiscent of the once popular theme-park ride 20,000 leagues under the sea. After one too many tropical cocktails, you might be wondering whether or not you actually stepped into a submarine. Behind the bar, large windows act as portholes into the hotel's pool, where you may catch a school of mermaids floating by. On Friday nights, be sure to catch the mystical ways of MeduSirena, Fort Lauderdale's own fire-eating mermaid. Show begins at 6:30p.m., but you might want to get there early in order to grab a seat. And to think mermaids only existed in Disney films. . .

Event Review: Mermaid Show
I'm a sucker for all things Tiki and this little bar in the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale is Heaven Under the Sea. The bar is tiny, done in a nautical theme like the hold of a wooden ship, with several large windows over the backbar allowing a view into the hotel swimming pool, where MeduSirena and her pod perform an underwater show that must be seen. Old Florida at its very best. The women are graceful, athletic and very entertaining. No one isn't smiling at them and they are always smiling back. The drinks aren't bad, either. Don't miss the opportunity if you're in the area. You just can't find this kind of a show anywhere. Check out this little video if you doubt me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOw1FBcSTjE
"What's a mermaid show? Like, she has a tail -- and she's underwater?" your friends from a boring state far away where the sun isn't always shining will ask, a bit skeptical of your plan. At this point, you'll have some explaining to do on your way to Wreck Bar, the shipwreck-style dark wooden bar with wide windows looking into the Sheraton's pool. Before the half-hour show begins, you can see, from the neck down, not-so-fit patrons bobbing along, an impromptu warm-up of humor. Soon... More »
