On Saturday evening, May 3, Tamara Suarez, owner of Café Con Leche, celebrated her 70th birthday surrounded by scores of friends. The party, held at Rivercrest Lodge, was hosted by daughter and son-in-law, Marissa and Danny Itzkovitz. Suarez, in red, is seen here arriving at the festivities aboard the riverboat Lily captained by Gill Autrey. On her left is sister, Chabela Ayoub. Her grandchildren, Alex and Mya, are along for the ride perched on the upper deck. While waiting offshore to make a grand entry, the group encountered an alligator.
