Dog Days

February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening here in the Cocoa Beach area. When thinking of ideas for our Arts & Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who beautify our community with their work. In this issue, we celebrate the beautiful art of Hassan Patterson who just happens to also be our photographer extraordinaire at Cocoa Beach Lifestyle. Take a look at some of his beautiful work and enjoy! As always, it is our goal and passion to highlight our local businesses and those who truly dedicate their lives to giving back, so check out our articles on Gisele Reiger with Brazilian Beauty Blowout Studio in Cocoa Beach and Steve Romano, the man behind “Wake Up Cocoa Beach” and countless other good deeds.  

Looking for some ideas for your kitchen? Check out the article on a custom kitchen nook from Shannon Reichel with Interior Stylings in Cocoa Beach.  

Of course, we can’t forget Valentine’s Day! We have many local restaurants that offer a great place for a special romantic dinner. One of my favorites is Flavour Kitchen & Wine Bar in Cocoa Beach.  

With our bustling creative scene, we hope you find inspiration in these pages and come to appreciate our unique perspective here in Cocoa Beach. Consider this issue your guide to all things creative, and hit the town to unleash your own creativity!

See you around, and happy Valentine’s Day!
