South Florida Food and Drink Events: Women + Wine, Art Appreciation, and More

Weekdays are the worst, unless you live in South Florida, where we refuse to let a moment go by without cramming it full of entertainment.

Whether you're looking to relax and recover from the weekend or would prefer to fill your weekday evening with distracting goings-on, there's something for you to do in Broward and Palm Beach counties this week.

Margarita Mondays

Mondays are terrible. Sometimes you just need a little bit of booze to brighten your day. Tequila is always a good option. Taco Beach Shack is always here to soothe even the worse case of the Mondays with its Margarita Monday special. It offers those little babies for just three bucks all day long.

Art Appreciation Month

We all needs some form of self-expression. August is art appreciation month and Gimme A Burger (in Pembroke Pines and Deerfield Beach) is celebrating with fully customizable burger options. Like a painting, guests must first choose their canvas, which in this case includes nearly a dozen meaty choices. Abstract expressionists may select any one of Gimme A Burger's® specialty Infusion Burgers, including the popular Bacon Coffee ($7.95), Caribbean Turkey ($7.95) and the Buffalo Bill ($10.95); while minimalists may choose to begin with a simple Big Single Burger ($6.95). All burgers are 1/3lb of 100% certified Angus patty. To participate, share your #BurgerArt online by posting a photograph to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the tag #GABBurgerArt or directly on the restaurants Facebook Pages all month long. The one to receive the most votes gets $100 gift certificate and photograph featured on Gimme A Burger's Wall of Burger Fame.

Buck-a-Shuck Oysters

Oysters are one of the most delicious creatures to come from the sea -- and one of the most expensive. National oyster day is coming up on Tuesday. To celebrate Rack's, in Boca and Delray, are offering dollar oysters all week long, from open to close.
