County Grind attends and details some of the finest -- and occasionally subpar -- events from a given week. On Sunday, Kyriaki Tsaganis hit up the Kitty Klaus Market in the back parking lot of Kreepy Tiki Tattoos & Boutique/the Monterey Club in Fort Lauderdale.

Seeing how I still hadn't been to the Monterey Club (I'm a shameful Fort Lauderdale boozer, I know), I figured what better introduction to the burgeoning institution than a lazy Sunday afternoon of holiday shopping and drinking at the Kitty Klaus Market. My companions and I made our way around to the back of the parking lot where the vendors had lined up to hawk their handmade wares and vintage finds. There were only a few stragglers wandering about by the time we arrived a little after 2 p.m., but more began to trickle in as their hangovers wore off.

This is the first of many markets to come organized by the Kreepy Kittens. Founding Kitten Nicole Fountain said the litter: "was formed to do more girlie things," (they recently hosted a class on pin-up hair and makeup), and to generally, "get more people out here." Well, ladies, you did a purrrfect job. And a big cheers to Rob Stannard, the owner of Monterey Club, for his excellent beer recommendations. Here are some of the highlights:

Snake skeleton pendants by Monterey regular bartender, Bryan Colman. Simmer down PETA patrol; these former pets all died of natural causes. Plus, recycling! If you're not an animal lover, he also makes rosaries with bits of human bones, natch.
