South Florida Food and Drink Events: Margarita Monday, Dine for a Cause, and More

Around and around we go; today is the start to yet another lovely workweek. Hopefully, you have a bit of a spring in your step from some indulgent weekend activities. If not, don't fret, there's still plenty of events to keep you busy through your working days.

Whether you're looking to uncork some wine, eat and drink for the turtles, or tour the great fromage of Europe, there's something to do in Broward and Palm Beach Counties this week.

Dine for a Cause Series: Benefit for Loggerhead Marinelife Center

Turtles are amazing creatures -- and we're not just talking the teenage mutant ninja variety. As part of its Dine for a Cause series, Eddie & Ozzie's Table 26 is hosting a benefit for Loggerhead Marinelife Center on Monday. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the restaurant is serving a four-course dinner with wine pairings and live music by Mike Mineo. For this installment, Quintessa Winery (known for its Bordeaux-style red Meritage blends) and Flowers Vineyards & Winery (a specialist in Chardonnay and pinot noir), both of which hail from California, are providing the vino for the evening. Sommeliers will be Skyping from afar to discuss the pairings. The cost to attend is $160 per person.

Margarita Monday

By the time 5 o'clock rolls around, most of us could use a drink -- yes, even on a Monday. This week Roccos Tacos and Tequila Bar in Boca Raton is offering a charitable excuse. It's teaming up with Minuteman Press of Boca Raton for Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce: Boca Festival Days. This event, "Cocktails and Food for a Cause," is benefitting KidSafe Foundation, a local nonprofit that provides education to kids and adults to prevent child sex abuse, bullying, and nefarious internet activity. The cost to attend is $25.
