Stick to the See-food Diet

It’s almost a couple of weeks into 2013. And we bet the novelty of your new year’s diet resolution has already worn off. If so, you’re not alone. Here’s your chance to stuff your face, yet again, at the second-annual Riverwalk Stone Crab and Seafood Festival on Saturday. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., ten to 15 restaurants will serve up seafood — and nonseafood — dishes in Riverwalk’s Esplanade Park. Each one will feature at least one dish for less than five bucks — to maximize your diet-cheating experience. Live music and family-friendly activities, including a hermit crab race, waitress competition, and cakewalk, will be featured to keep the little ones entertained while you hit up the multiple bars. The event is free and open to the public. Esplanade Park is located at 400 SW Second St. in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Visit goriverwalk.com.
