Culinary Crawl

You’ve done the whole pub crawl thing, but as you get older, stumbling around drunk doesn’t sound quite as appealing as it did when you were 21 — that, and internet photos get around quickly. Still, it’s nice to hit up a bunch of places in one excursion. You could wander aimlessly on your own or let the professionals plan it. Every Saturday at noon, Fort Lauderdale Food Tours (by the same folks behind Miami Culinary Tours) hosts Taste of Las Olas. The journey features a guided historical and cultural lesson of Fort Lauderdale’s most famous street. The two-and-a-half-mile tour stops at several local eateries, including EVOO Market, Bao Las Olas, Gran Forno, Johnny V, and the Cheese Culture. In terms of portion, it’s equivalent to a nice, progressive lunch. The trek is about a half-mile, so comfortable shoes are suggested. It doesn’t cater to vegan or gluten-free diets, but the restaurants can make accommodations for vegetarians and those who abstain from chicken, beef, or seafood. The exact starting point is disclosed when you reserve a spot. Tickets cost $79 per adult, with a $10 option for wine pairings, and $49 for kids over 14. Visit ftlauderdalefoodtours.com
