Food Events on the Radar

• Fort Lauderdale's largest, outdoor happy hour is back on April 9. The Riverwalk Trust's Get Downtown series, now in its 12th year, brings the party to the streets with food, entertainment, and drink all for $20 ($25 at the door). Sample bites from YOLO, Bova Prime, Chima, Cold Stone Creamery, Riverside Hotel, Sublime, and more as you listen to tunes from local band, Bounce. Admission also nets you two free drinks. The shindig starts at 5 p.m. in the Plaza at Las Olas (in front of YOLO at 333 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Get tickets at

Cafe Vico

is hosting a wine pairing dinner and foodie movie next Wednesday, March

24. The five-course dinner starts at 7 p.m. and includes a mingle hour

where you can sample the restaurant's signature martini plus passed

hors d'oeuvres. The meal will include eight wine selections, and

concludes with a screening of Penelope Cruz's Woman on Top. The dinner and a movie costs $65; RSVP is required.

Capital Grille

is debuting its new Artist Label Wine Series this week with a small

batch Cabernet Sauvignon crafted by winemaker Thomas Peffer of Alaton

Vineyards in Napa Valley. The label itself, a work entitled "At Peace,"

was painted by artist Dean J. Baer. Proceeds from each sale will go

towards Share Our Strength, an organization combating childhood hunger

in America. The small-batch wine had a little over 7,600 bottles

produced, and will be available through April 25 at Capital Grille

restaurants nationwide.

• With all the openings at Gulfstream Park lately, the renovated

racetrack is becoming quite the food hot spot. On March 27, though, it

will also become the scene of a grisly murder  (dun dun DUN!). That's

when the Ten Palms restaurant will host its Murder Mystery Dinner

Party, an interactive dinner and show set in 1920s Georgia. It's like

Clue, only with more prime rib. Tickets  cost $40 per person; RSVP by

calling 954-457-6974.
