It's not a party until it's a 3rd & 3rd party. At least, that's what the Delray Beach locals will tell you. With the restaurant's three-year anniversary happening Thursday, today owner and proprietor John Paul Kline's establishment stands as one of the area's most popular downtown Delray Beach haunts — one that quickly attracted the local community for its collaborative and supportive environment. But rather than celebrate another year in business, this
Everyone is invited. There is no cover. The 3rd &
If Larry David thinks you're funny, it's the equivalent of Emeril Lagasse thinking you can cook: a high, door-opening honor from an industry kingmaker. In 2007, David introduced most of the world to Jerry Brooks — AKA J.B. Smoove — as Leon Black, Larry's unlikely "black friend" on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Smoove has shown off his deft skills as an improviser every season since. Lovers of cinema-so-bad-it's-good have known Smoove since at least

He wrote uncompromising social satires about sexual deviants and licentious women, characters whose brazen amorality led critics of the time to decry the plays as

There's pressure to figure out where and how to fit into high school society. Foxy Brown's Pajama Pancake Party aims to make things a little easier for those teens who have it the worst, benefiting the Jack and Jill Children's Center's mission to support low-income and at-risk teenagers and their families. All you have to do is eat. The event features an all-you-can-eat flapjack breakfast with five pancake stations, eggs, and bacon. The hotcakes highlight the restaurant's favorite weekly specials from the past few years. The brunch menu offers bananas Foster and raspberry white chocolate, so expect to see even more creative, flavorful options. They've done things like corn pancakes with pulled pork and Three Second Rule, topped with ice cream, crumbled Oreos, and gummy worms, crowned with a waffle cone. The coffee station is included, and there are also cash bars with mimosas, bloody marys, and local craft beers. The festivities include a best pajama contest, a pie-your-parent-for-charity station, games, and more.

Solomon D. Spady was the most prominent African-American educator and community leader in Delray Beach during his tenure as teacher and principal of George Washington Carver High School. His Mission Revival home, constructed in 1925, has since served as an African-American cultural heritage museum, the only one of its kind in Palm Beach County. Spady, honored as a "Great Floridian," strove to give his students the best possible education and prepared them for college in the less-than-enlightened era of the American South before the civil rights movement. As a bastion

You know you're living a pug life walking around with a wrinkly, short, and squishy face but people want to pet you anyway. Just another day in the life of a pug. How could you not love that adorable, asthmatic face? Sadly, even purebreds like pugs get abandoned by their owners. Happily, there are people who care.

This weekend, the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival is expected to bring 100,000 attendees and more than 600 artists to the seaside town. Celebrating its 22nd year, this annual festival claims to be one of the world's largest. In fact, it's so big that it will last for two days, on Saturday and Sunday. Designs on the asphalt will use only chalk and span styles from traditional Renaissance classicism to more modern styles like cubism and pop art. Festival food courts will feed the masses while live bands kick off at noon and play for the duration of the fest. Take Tri-Rail to the festival or park on the north side of the Palm Beach State College Lake Worth Campus. There will be a free shuttle service from both locations that runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Free parking throughout downtown and valet service are also available.
The Street Painting Festival is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) event and is from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Lake and Lucerne avenues in downtown Lake Worth. There is no admission charge. Visit streetpaintingfestivalinc.org.
