South Florida Food and Drink Event: Cigar City, Team Trivia, and More

Around and around we go; today is the start to yet another lovely workweek. Hopefully, you have a bit of a spring in your step from some indulgent weekend activities. If not, don't fret, there's still plenty of events to keep you busy through your working days.

Whether you're looking to drink some interesting beer, learn to cook, or stimulate those braincells while drinking, there's something to do in Broward and Palm Beach Counties this week.

Team Trivia

Mondays are pretty much the worst day of the week. Most of use are over it from the start. A little beer and mental stimulation can liven up the first day of the workweek. Gather up all your smarty pants friends and head over to World of Beer Coconut Creek for team trivia on Monday for the chance to win gift certificates. The brain games begins at 7 p.m. Visit

Free Entree Mondays

You may be too fried to expend any more metal energy than needed, but Fork and Knife is giving us one reason to enjoy Mondays (even if the rest of the day is a tiring bore). Every week, the Boca Raton spot is offering two-for-one entrees all night long. Visit

Single Note Series: Almonds

For the past few years, everyone's been all nuts about nuts. America's old favorite, however, peanuts are out these days. On Monday, Whole Foods Market in Fort Lauderdale is hosting an almond class. For $20 per person, it will go over vegan recipes for almond butter, almond pesto pasta, and coconut almond bark. The cost includes wine. Registration is required. Visit 


A Vegetarian Spring

Spring is in the air: time to celebrate seasonal produce. Publix Aprons Cooking School is teaching students how to prepare Carrot Ginger Soup; Grilled Asparagus and Watercress Salad with Charred Asparagus Vinaigrette; Salad Celery Root Remoulade with Crispy Shallots; Fennel, Basil and Citrus Salad Dressed with Nuoc Cham. The class begins at 6 p.m. The cost to attend is $40 per person. Visit

The No Joke April Fool's Day Cigar City Brewing Tap Takeover

No matter the day, craft beer is never a joke (we're serious about our brews here in Broward and Palm Beach Counties). On Tuesday at 7 p.m., the Brass Tap in Pembroke Pines is hosting a Cigar City tap takeover with a variety of special releases and old reliables from the beloved Florida brewery. Rarer brews include Humidor Series Smoked English Style Imperial Stout, White Oak Peach IPA, and Juarta Baltic Porter, a Coronado Brewery Collaboration. Visit


Secret Stache Wednesday

It's Wednesday night, and you feel like partying ­style, but maybe with more funky music to bump and grind to. Where do you go? It's easy. Stache. And its Wednesday night, themed brings a crossover soulful sound that breaks the norm from what you'd expect to hear in downtown. Resident DJ Brock Lambert's ambient, chilled­ out beats set the mood, and an internationally renowned beat­smith guest comes in every week to ignite the retro party. It's a sexy night, set to laid­back tunes, and of course with dignified highballs that would impress Mr. Gatsby himself. Problem solved. Visit

Wine Down Wednesday

By the time hump-day rolls around, most of us could go for a bottle of wine (or more). Every week, Bocce Wine Bar & Tapas offers half-off bottles of wine from the entire menu -- that should help to get you through the week. Visit

Spanish Tasting Ribera Del Duero

The Iberian peninsula is making its way to Pompano Beach on Wednesday night; Wine Watch is teaming up with Cafe Maxx for a Spanish Ribera del Duero tasting at the restaurant. For $35 per person, sample eight wines while noshing on some excellently prepared light bites. Visit


Gold Medal Wines

When you go to a wine tasting, you never know what you're going to get: it could be great or you could be drinking a bunch of garbage. On Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m., Crown Wine & Spirits in Delray Beach is hosting a tasting with 20 wines that have received gold and double gold awards at prestigious competitions. Fulcrum winemaker D. Rossi will be onsite as a special guest. The cost to attend is $20 per person. Visit

Awesome Dinner Party

We've all been to a dinner party that just wasn't quite right. As eager as some home cooks may be, cooking for a group isn't the easiest task to pull off. On Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Chef Jean-Pierre's Cooking School is hosting an awesome dinner party class that will take you through everything you need to know. The cost to attend is $68. Visit
