What’s New In Miami This Fall

Dining and entertainment spaces are finally starting to welcome patrons back to some semblance of normalcy in Magic City.

From a Tulum-inspired beach club to seasonal menus and new museum exhibits, here’s what you need to check out in the 305.

Between coronavirus-caused production delays and a glut of new streaming platforms, the future of television is rife with uncertainty right now. But here’s one thing we do know for sure: The (awards) show will go on. The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to be handed out on Sept. 20, honoring pre-pandemic series like The Crown, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Schitt’s Creek, Succession and Watchmen.

But don’t expect to see the stars of all those shows in the same room. This year’s ceremony will be entirely remote, with the eventual winners accepting their statues from their homes. An all-virtual Emmys is a first for television, and you can bet that other awards shows — including the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the Oscars — will be watching closely should

Movie theaters, arcades, bowling alleys. What’s opening in Miami-Dade under Phase 2

Watching a movie or play in the theater. Bowling. Playing in the arcade. Yes, fun is returning to Miami-Dade after months of COVID-19 closures.

Miami-Dade and Broward County have finally entered Phase 2 as COVID-19 cases continue to show signs of slowing down, a positive outlook for Florida’s hardest hit counties, which have recorded thousands of cases and deaths since the pandemic began in March. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave the OK last week.

What does this mean?

Miami-Dade and Broward enter Phase 2. What changes?

In Miami-Dade County, Phase 2 means movie theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, playhouses, concert houses, convention spaces, auditoriums and other indoor amusement facilities can reopen at 50 percent capacity Friday afternoon. Banquet halls will also be allowed to reopen, a Miami-Dade County spokeswoman confirmed.

Phase 2 also means limited competitive play, including scrimmages, will be allowed again. Organized inter-team sports and league games are still

With Labor Day nearing and Gov. Gavin Newsom easing pandemic restrictions in some counties, Californians face a dizzying mix of openings and closures in coming days.

Still coping with fires in many areas and coronavirus just about everywhere, local and state authorities are limiting access to many indoor and outdoor recreation options. Still, most parks, beaches and trails are open, and enterprises including the L.A. Zoo, SeaWorld San Diego and Mammoth Mountain have found ways to at least partially reopen or extend their summer seasons.

Before you make plans, choose a strategy for avoiding crowds, which may be heavy from Friday, Sept. 4, through Monday, Sept. 7.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s up:

• On Friday, Newsom unveiled a new set of rules for reopening the state. Because

Here’s What’s Still Open for Business in Hollywood

Editor’s note: The list is constantly updated. Dates refer to when announcements were made, or when an event is scheduled to happen.

You’ve probably seen our other COVID-19 list, the one where we are examining every cancellation that has taken place as the pandemic takes hold in our community. This is the counterpoint to that “Houston, we have a problem” list; this is the one where we’ll talk about how the show must go on, how the Force will be with us, and, maybe most importantly, how we’ll be back.

What’s changed, what does it mean and where can you travel?

Off limits: Croatia has now been deemed a high-risk destination for British travellers: Simon Calder
Off limits: Croatia has now been deemed a high-risk destination for British travellers: Simon Calder

In the latest quarantine shuffle, “no-go” status has been lifted from Portugal after more than five months. But British travellers in Croatia, Austria and Trinidad & Tobago will need to self-isolate at home for two weeks if they arrive after 4am on Saturday 22 August.

These are the key questions and answers.

What has changed?

From 8 June until 9 July, the UK government imposed blanket quarantine for arriving travellers from any country on earth apart from Ireland. Self-isolation at home is an arduous undertaking, and the closest most of us will come to house arrest.

From 10 June, dozens of countries and territories were awarded “air corridor” status and placed on the exempt list – meaning travellers need not self-isolate on arrival.

But in response to rising rates of infection in some of those
