Events In Hollywood The art of glassblowing is traditionally not associated within the shores of South Florida. One is more likely to view a skilled craftsman performing his art in the ancient cities of Venice and Milan. Ah alas, this centuries old technique can be found just down the road from Fort Lauderdale. This craft is one of the topics of my discussion this week’s events in Hollywood.
