Bronx Wanderers

The other night the Bronx Wanderers wondered into town to a sellout show! They sang hits from the movie a, “Bronx Tale, Grease and the Broadway show, The Jersey Boys. Lead singer Yo Vinny, his son Vinny the Kid, Nikki Stix, Jimmy Fracassi and Jay Leslie, enlightened an alive crowd at Harbor Hills Country Club. With superlative vocals and musicianship, dynamic enthusiasm and genuine love of music they perform, The Bronx Wanderers recreated the magic of the era and built an energetic bond with the audience. The club was dancing, singing, hand clapping and toe-tapping all night. Delicious beef tenderloin was served along with homemade Maryland crab cakes and for dessert, New York style cheesecake. In attendance was Harbor Hills Country Club members Vic and Janice Johnson, who just built a beautiful custom made home in the Bella Vista section. They said, “We are having the times of our lives,”! You too can enjoy the lifestyle you’ve been looking for at Harbor Hills Country Club. So what are you waiting for?

Bern's Steak House

We all remember the movie, Goodfellas, which was a 1990 American Gangsta movie about wiseguy’s. The film begins with a pivotal night-time scene that introduces the film's three major characters. It is a major turning point for each of them. Three organized crime mobsters are in a white-top car cruising down a freeway. An inter-title notes the location and time: New York, 1970:
• Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) - the driver
• Jimmy Conway (Robert DeNiro) - in the passenger's seat
• Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) - in the back seat

While these guys pictured above nowhere near Gangsta status they did have a good time out the other night. There first stop was at a local horse track Tampa Bay Downs and continued at World Famous Bern’s Steak House.

Harbor Hills Country Club President Michael Rich along with Harbor Hills Country Club members Tom Harper, George Schwartz and Geo Mayer indulged in fine aged beef and a nice bottle of vino. Bern’s Steak House has been around since the 1950’s when Bern Laxer opened the restaurant. It is known for their vast wine selection and perfectly aged steaks. After dinner they relaxed upstairs in a private booth with a Bern’s signature dessert and fine after-dinner spirits.
It doesn't get any better than this.

Double Pane Low E Windows are included on all new homes at Harbor Hills

Low E Windows are a standard feature on all new homes at Harbor Hills Country Club. In the Florida climate UV rays and and heat can be oppressive and put a heavy burden on air conditioning systems. E stands for emissivity. The low E glass reflects heat back to its source. It does this by utilizing an ultra thin metallic coating on or in the glass. UV or ultraviolet light causes damage to your skin, wood, fabrics, and causes colors to fade. Infrared light (IR) is basically heat. So the Low E glass allows the visible light to pass into the home while blocking a certain amount of UV and IR light.

The infrared light in sunlight is powerful. When it strikes an object it heats it up. These objects can be your tile floors, furniture, sidewalks, patio furniture, etc. As these objects cool off, they emit a low powered form of IR light. Low E glass reflects this form of energy. In the summer this helps to keep your house cooler, as the heat from objects outside is kept outside. In the winter, all objects in your home are heated (by either the sun or your furnace). This heat is also bounced back into your house by the low E glass.

While the cost can seem prohibitive to many homebuilders we feel that it is the right thing to do to ensure the best quality for our homeowners. Not only will it protect our homeowners furniture, carpet, drapes, etc but it will also ensure that energy bills are moderate.
