Good afternoon, South Florida. Is everyone all right?

1. Breakfast of champions

The Fort Lauderdale Craft Beer Sporting Games and Food Fest took place this past Saturday in Fort Lauderdale's MASS district, and if you weren't able to witness in person representatives of the craft-beer industry hoisting kegs, racing minicycles and jousting, Talia J. Medina took these photographs just for you.

Recommended listening: "Weakness" by Margo Price

2. Evening shade

Burt Reynolds recently talked to Ben Crandell about his long career, which includes the action comedies/1980s Cline household favorites "The Cannonball Run," "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Hooper," the more substantial "Deliverance" and "Starting Over," and a new film titled "Dog Years," which this weekend opened the latest edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. "Dog Years," you should know, is not science fiction, a genre that has never revved Reynolds' Trans Am. "Yeah, you know, I don’t like that kind of film, science fiction or any kind of picture … with little people chasing you," he told Crandell. "I don’t think I’d be very good at them." Reynolds attended the festival's opening-night shindig at Hard Rock Live, where we got shots of him and fellow actor and honoree Graham Greene ("Longmire"!) on the red carpet.

5. Now, he's back

No sooner did Steve Earle cancel his Hurricane Irma-postponed show at Parker Playhouse than he scheduled a new concert to take place mere footsteps away. As Ben Crandell reports, the gloriously foul-mouthed Texas troubadour and his band, the Dukes, will now appear Dec. 16 at War Memorial Auditiorium. Guitar Town, here we come.
