Village People

Simultaneously quaint and funky, West Palm Beach’s Northwood Village community is easy on the eyes and easier to miss, an enclave of fine dining, shopping, and entertainment a mile north of downtown West Palm. And if you’ve never visited the self-proclaimed “historically hip” street, there’s no better time than from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday for part of the village’s free, monthly Art & Wine on the Promenade festivities. Giving Downtown Boca and Downtown at the Gardens a run for their money, the eclectic space will be stuffed with live music, live art-making, and free desserts and wine from the brilliantly named vino purveyor Winehooch. While women can shop at places like Birds Off Broadway and Something Lively, their other halves can enjoy the debut of Northwood’s Man Cave, featuring videogames, sports chatter and Marlin game giveaways, beertastings, and a “Man Cave Mural.” Event organizers promise plenty of free event parking; we’ll believe it when we see it. You can find Northwood Village at 400 Northwood Road in West Palm Beach. Call 561-822-1554, or visit northwoodvillage.org.
