Heads Up: Beer, Breakfast, and Other Food News

As we wrap the week, Clean Plate Charlie wants to call your attention to a few things elsewhere on the site.

We broke the news that Michelle Bernstein is leaving the Omphoy. Our new news guy, Rich Abdill, follows up on the "terrifying" Omphoy owner, Jeff Greene.

Don't forget to check out the first Skillet Sunday at the Bubble, a joint project between DJs Mig and Andie

Sweetswirl, the folks behind Green Room. Unlimited brunch buffet and drinks are only $15 between 2 and 4 p.m. Skip the food and show up later to drink with abandon for $10.

Don't miss the inimitable Alex Rendon, who posted on homebrewing 101 at the Funky Buddha Lounge and Brewery, where teacher and brewmaster Ryan Sentz leads a class on brewing

Hefeweizen. During the course of the night, Rendon fixates on malt over hops, asking to

snort it and making jokes about malt sacks. Check out the post here.

Speaking of beer: We're wrapping up South Florida Beer Week, which closes with an epic beer event in Jupiter, the Sixth-Annual Craft Brewers Festival, from 1 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Roger Dean Stadium. Tickets cost $31 online and $35 at the door. Arrive early to avoid sellout.

And that's a wrap. Hope you too are drinking a PBR (or Dogfish Head) as you read.
