1. Another SunFest sets

Our photographers posted more than 300 photos from SunFest, the annual arts-and-music festival that took place May 3-7 in downtown West Palm Beach. They appear to have ignored the pro-Night Ranger argument I made in last week's newsletter, but the photographers did make time to snap SunFest performers Ziggy Marley, Fetty Wap, Weezer and Snoop Dogg, among others.

2. Planes!

Photographers Jim Rassol and Barbara Corbellini Duarte repeatedly looked up and down this weekend on Fort Lauderdale beach, as thousands of people gathered to watch stunt pilots scare the hell out of the sea creatures below. Can photos look loud? Rassol's and Duarte's shots of the Fort Lauderdale Air Show certainly do. Meanwhile, from a far less crowded Miami Beach, on Sunday I watched two manatees swim through glassy waters under a vacant sky. They barely made a sound.

3. It did get Rolling Loud

Talia J. Medina attended this weekend's Rolling Loud festival at Bayfront Park in Miami, where she caught sets by Kendrick Lamar, Run the Jewels, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$. If you were there, there's a good chance you'll find yourself here.

4. Oh, Mama

Mike Mayo suggests 18 restaurants to take your mother to this Sunday, which is, of course, Mother's Day. And if your mom wants to go to all these restaurants, well, it looks as if you'll be going to 18 restaurants on Sunday, bud.

5. Hogtown Heartbreakers

You got lucky if you saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in concert this past Friday in West Palm Beach. As Ben Crandell writes in his review of the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre show, "The evening could not have played out more gloriously for the Gainesville native, beginning with one of those crushed-velvet sunsets of pink and purple that embraced the amphitheater crowd, packed all the way to the palm trees at the top of the hill. ... There were a number of such 'wow' moments Friday night, an 18-song ebb and flow of emotions, eras and energies choreographed by the personable Petty."
