Things To Do

Five Best Food and Drink Events in South Florida This Weekend: Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival, Sweet Dreams Winter Festival, and More

Congratulations, you made it through yet another working week. You might as well give yourself a pat on the back to celebrate -- or better yet, a drink or three.

This weekend the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival kicks off five days of food and wine everything. Follow our coverage all weekend. We'll be live Tweeting updates, Instagramming pics, and posting reviews here on the blog.

But even if you aren't attending the ultimate foodie event of the season, there's plenty more to do in South Florida. Did you hear Tracy Morgan will be Grand Marshal of the Winterfest Boat Parade? Yeah, that's happening. So much for Tori Spelling.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
