At the end of the first season of Magic City, Starz’ period drama about the underbelly of the Miami Beach hotel business in the 1960s, Judi Silver and Ike wound up in the clink, with Ben eventually springing Judi. Mercedes and Danny finally got around to hooking up, but their future is uncertain. And Ben tried to drown Lily but then changed his mind.
Just your average day in vintage Miami.
The second season launches Friday, and we hope it sheds light on little cliffhangers. (Here comes Danny with a baby carriage, perhaps?) To celebrate, Lauren Arkin, the owner of L.A. Boudoir Miami Vintage Boutique (6900 Biscayne Blvd., Second Floor, Miami), is throwing a party and spilling the beans about what she saw while filming the second season.
Magic City’s costume department rings Arkin when it needs a vintage thing or two for the cast, and Arkin has also appeared as an extra on the show. “Come dressed in late-’50s/early-’60s fashions,” she says. “There will be a best-dressed contest judged by some of the ladies from Cupcake Burlesque. And we will be introducing a ‘Moon Over Miami’ cocktail.”
