The disco craze that took the world by storm nearly 40 years ago was born in New York City, right?
A theatrical experience celebrating 1970's disco comes to the Adrienne Arsht Center tonight. And while it’s hundreds of miles away from the streets John Travolta struts down in “Saturday Night Fever,” it turns out Miami played a major role in the disco craze.

Years ago, Terence Cantarella had the idea to navigate Miami-Dade’s canals via canoe. He’s not an experienced paddler or an avid outdoorsman, but he wanted to seize a homegrown opportunity for adventure: “I wasn’t going to explore the world’s oceans like Jacques [Cousteau]. I don’t have the time or money for that. I was going to spend four days circumnavigating Miami-Dade county via the canals.”
Yesterday evening at Scotty’s Landing, the WLRN Miami Herald News staff celebrated the end of the Canoe Project and welcomed Terence Cantarella back on dry land. WLRN Miami Herald News anchor Arianna Prothero led a Q & A with Terence about his journey.

WLRN Miami Herald News reporter, Trina Sargalski, recently chatted with Arnold Markowitz, a local fishing expert here in Miami, about why he loves fishing in Miami’s canals.
