South Florida is full of food and drink related activities, whether it be wine tastings, beer events, burger festival, hot dog celebrations, gardening, or anything else you can imagine. This weekend, however, we have some very different and possibly scary eating and drinking events -- we'll let you figure out which ones to be afraid of. From Real Housewives to Zombies to dog parties to special brews and more, we have something interesting to do the end of this workweek.
5. Wine Country Safari
You've heard of Lion Country Safari, which is all about spotting miserably hot animals, but this is Wine Country Safari -- an event that involves consuming copious amounts of drinks. You see the correlation. On Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m., the Boca Raton Museum of Art is hosting a benefit for Twin Palms Center for the Disabled with wine, hors d'oeuvres, raffles and silent auction. Catering is by Mississippi Sweets BBQ. Tickets are $25 per person or $45 per couple.
Boca Raton Museum of Art is located at 501 Plaza Real in Boca Raton. Call 561-392-2500, or visit bocamuseum.org. For event info, call 561-391-4874, or email email@example.com.
4. "Absolutely Fabulous" with Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey
Nothing screams fabulous like the Real Housewives. Fab it up this Sunday starting at 10 p.m. at Pangaea Lounge. Housewife Teresa Giudice will be hosting and ladies will get a free supply of Grey Goose "Fabetinis" from 10 to 11 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase or $20 at the door.
Pangaea Lounge is located at 5711 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Call 954-581-5454, or visit pangaea-lounge.com.
3. Second Saturday Cask Party
South Floridians love craft beer, which means we tend to get ridiculously excited over new flavors. To stroke your excitement, Due South Brewing Co. brings out a one-of-a-kind treatment on its brews on the second Saturday of every month -- i.e. this Saturday. Food trucks, brewery tours, and casks will be available starting at noon.
Due South Brewing Co. is located at 2900 High Ridge Road in Boynton Beach. Call 561-463-2337, or visit duesouthales.com.
2. Paw-ty Time
Everyone likes a good party -- even dogs. On Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Shoppes at Village Point in Boca Raton are hosting a paw-ty to benefit the Tri-County Humane Society. In addition to dog and family-friendly vendors, food trucks will be onsite. The event is free to attend. The Shoppes at Village Point is located at 6018 SW 18th St. in Boca Raton. Call 561-338-8443.
