Funky fresh dressed
Wannabe models, call your plastic surgeons and go for that boob/pectoral job. Ignore anyone who says you're too young for Botox, and if you don't already have one, develop an eating disorder. It'll all be worth it if yours is one of the two lucky faces chosen to represent Ill Fit Authentic Apparel, a new clothing line for men, women, and children. It's seeking representatives over 18 years old. The winners get year long contracts to star in all of Ill Fit's commercials, music videos, and print ads. Pose off this morning at 11:00, at SNS Productions, 55 Weston Rd., Weston. Call 954-217-8600 or visit www.illfitonline.com. --Kris Conesa
Vamos al Cine!
Mexican films on wheels
Long before scorching-hot sex symbol Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal became the toast of Mexico City by teaming up with celebrated director Alfonso Cuaron for 2001's Y Tu Mamá También, there was Pedro and Ismael. As in the beloved actor/singer/icon Pedro Infante and director Ismael Rodriguez, with some 40 films to his name. And while Cuaron's film is certainly worthy of critical acclaim, it's Infante's versatility and charm as an actor, and Rodriguez's accessible characters and story lines, that made comedies such as 1951's A Toda Maquina such audience favorites. That film and Los Tres Garcia, El Seminarista, and Ay Jalisco No Te Rajes, all from the golden age of Mexican cinema, will be screened as part of the Hispanic Film Heritage Tour in the Homestead area at various supermarket parking lots. Buy a bag of tortillas, or any other Maseca product, and get a ticket. Call 305-529-1446 or visit www.hispanousa.net for locations and showtimes. --John Anderson
The late food writer Julia Child ate at Norman's when she visited Miami in 1997. For tonight's American Institute of Wine and Food "Tribute to Julia Child," chef Norman Van Aken has planned a menu that ensures the high-spirited gourmand's return to his eatery, at least in spirit. Priced at $85 for members or $95 for guests, the five-course meal will feature creations like Child's 85th birthday cake, and Lobster a l'Americaine with a One Sided Potato Pancake. The latter dish celebrates the classic moment on her Seventies TV show when Child calmly re-plated a latke she'd accidentally dropped -- and instructed viewers that no one sees what a chef does alone in her kitchen. Enjoy some of Julia's favorites tonight at 7:00, at Norman's, 21 Almeria St., Coral Gables. Call 954-962-6772, or visit www.aiwf.org.--Pamela Robin Brandt
