To out-of-towners, Palm Beach County may best be known for its pristine coastline, Donald Trump golf course that sits a stroke shot away from the county jail, and the sexiest seniors this side of Aventura. But the longest conga line? Not so much. That is, until Thursday, when the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will attempt Palm Beach County's longest conga line at the Latin American Food and Wine Festival. And here's where your help comes in -- they need bodies. Grab some friends and show up at the festival headquarters at Main Street at Midtown (4801 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens) between 5:30 and 9 p.m. for an outdoor festival of local Latin-inspired eats paired with wines from regions like Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. More than 20 restaurants, including Cantina Laredo, Don Ramon's, Coolinary Café, and La Fonda, will be participating. After you fill up, grab a hand-rolled cigar and get to stepping in the conga line. A Latin dance flash mob is also in the works. Tickets cost $25. Call 561-832-1986, or visit pbhchamber.com.
