News about the City of Lake Worth by Palm Beacher Carleton Varney.*

A Special to the Daily News
(aka, The Shiny Sheet).

“[Y]ou should head just across the Lake Worth Bridge”, wrote Mr. Varney. To read the entire article click on this link; an excerpt follows:

     While you’re in Lake Worth, stop by ZaSu, which is named for ZaSu Pitts by the young charming woman who owns the shop, Larissa Fitzgerald. ZaSu was her grandmother’s favorite movie star, way back when there were real movie stars. ZaSu, 617 Lake Ave., sells women’s fashions in bright colors along with a mix of trendy jewelry and fragrances, all presented in an environment where creativity takes a starring role. And ZaSu knows how to picture frame its shop windows.
     I like to visit Lake Worth to dine — one of my favorites is Rustico Italiano, 701 Lucerne Ave. And I always stop by city Vice Mayor Andy Amoroso’s corner shop, Studio 205, at 600 Lake Ave.
     The shop is filled with just about everything from wraparound beachwear, to perfume, to costume jewelry. It is the place I go to buy my newspapers — local publications as well as international ones — from the racks on the sidewalk. Andy is a special host all his own. He knows everything about everything and everybody in this little town to the south, which is home to pretty painted cottages, the historic casino swimming pool and so many charming boutiques.
