In a time when anger seems to be ruling the day, the City of West Palm Beach is committing to becoming a catalyst of kindness by inspiring residents, community organizations, schools, and local businesses to help create a kinder, more gracious world.
Mayor Jeri Muoio has kicked off this movement by signing a City of Kindness pledge, which was inspired by the 100 Billion Acts of Kindness Resolution drafted and ratified in June 2016 at the 84th annual U.S. Conference of Mayors. Motivated by the nearly 300 U.S. cities that adopted the resolution, the City of West Palm Beach commits to fostering a culture of kindness and sharing resources to inspire kindness.
“Signing the Kindness Pledge is a first step toward changing the culture of our City and our community in a very positive way,” said Mayor Muoio. “Simple, powerful and unsolicited acts of kindness can make a difference in the lives of our neighbors and in the lives of the next generation,” she added. “I challenge everyone to perform random acts of kindness daily!”

The West Palm Beach “Kindness Movement” is taking off. Resident Cynthia Rivera is one example of a resident who has stepped up to the challenge! Since December, #TeamKindnessWPB has performed community cleanups, randomly distributed $2 bills to new friends, and donated books and teddy bears to young children.
“I love West Palm Beach, and this makes sense to me,” said Riviera. “Making our City great starts with each and every one of us!”
Residents are encouraged to view a list of “kindness tips” here on the City of West Palm Beach website. Spread the word and record an act of kindness on social media channels by using the #TeamKindnessWPB hashtag!
Valentines Day is the 14th – Make your reservations while there’s still time! Here are some more options.
West Palm Beach locals have long embraced a Middle Eastern gem nestled downtown at the corner of Datura and Dixie, just one block south of Clematis Street. Now, those looking to treat their beloved to a special Valentine’s Day dinner can get in on what downtown diners have loved about this longstanding restaurant for many years.
For dinner on Tuesday, February 14th, Leila will feature their special “Leila Grill for Two.” Complete with a bottle of wine and dessert, diners will love the combination grill for two featuring a sharing portion of Shish Tawook (tender breast of chicken marinated in fresh garlic and olive oil with a zest of lemon); Shish Kebab (beef tips marinated to tender perfection in a light mix of spices and extra virgin olive oil); Lamb Kebab (succulent spice-rubbed squares of lamb marinated in onion and extra virgin olive oil); and Kraidis (flame-grilled shrimp marinated in a special sauce of garlic, lemon and parsley) for $100 per couple. Those not interested in the special feast also have the option to dine from Leila’s daily dinner menu.
Don’t want to wait for dinner to celebrate the Day of Love, Leila owners, Akram and Mireille Awad, will be waiting to greet you for lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m. with a warm smile and handshake just like every other day of the week. They suggest starting your Valentine’s Day lunch off with a couple of selections from Leila’s expansive mezze menu, then topping it off with a signature dish such as Shish Tawook ($11), which is tender breast of chicken marinated in fresh garlic and olive oil with lemon zest. Try the Samak Mishwee ($14), a flame-grilled 8-ounce Mahi-Mahi filet served with tangy citrus sesame taratoor sauce. All luncheon entrees are reasonably priced from $8 to $14 so they won’t break your budget. Each is served with a choice of French fries, rice with vermicelli or couscous and your choice of hummus or baba ghanoush.
