by Dan Santoro
(Fort Lauderdale, FL)

“Trapper” Dan Santoro first visited Fort Lauderdale Beach for Spring Break ’79 and returned the following 2 years as well.

He permanently moved to “Fort Liquordale” in 1986 and quickly immersed himself in the wild nightclub scene there, working and making friends with dozens of like-minded individuals and vacationers while soaking up the sun and history of the city.

After the death of “Crazy Gregg” Newell, he was challenged by his friends to write the ultimate history of one of America’s hottest destinations in the latter half of the 20th century. And thus was born "Where the Boys (and Girls) Were! The Fun & Sun history of Fort lauderdale Beach"!
