Red and White Wines of Bordeaux Immersion Class 3

They say the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself. The same goes for wine -- not literally. (Although...)

The cost to attend is $125.

Virginia Philip Wine Shop & Academy is located at 101 N. Clematis St. in West Palm Beach. Call 561-721-6000, or visit

The Basics of Culinary

When practicing a new skill, you have to start with the basics. To cook, you need to know how to boil water. Learn how starting Tuesday at Publix Apron Cooking School Plantation at 10 a.m. For $300 per person, the six week course, which meets on consecutive Tuesdays, will go over the ins and outs of cooking basics. Students will receive a certificate at the end of the class.

Founders Florida Launch Tap Takeover

Floridians have finally caught on to the craft beer movement, so much so that it's hard to keep up. Michigan brewery, Founders is finally getting in on the action.

Full Moon Rising

Strange things happen on the full moon: werewolves come out of hiding, witches cast spells, people go crazy. You should probably give in and celebrate. On Wednesday at 6 p.m., S3 is hosting Full Moon Rising, a party with sexy fire-spinners, sultry music, and sushi. For those looking to spend some cash, firepit tables for up to five people with drinks and sushi cost $250 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

The Art of Wine and Food Series Presents Somm

Good food is like art in your mouth. Add in perfectly paired wine: it's like ingesting the Mona Lisa.

Food and wine pairings will also be sampled. The cost to attend is $50. Seating is limited. Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale is located at 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.

Food Truck Invasion - Wellington

What could possibly be better than getting invaded by multiple options for good food? Winning the lotto? Awesome, but unlikely. At a food truck roundup, you will definitely find tasty edible material. On Thursday from 5 to 9:30 p.m., food trucks are taking over the Wellington Amphitheatre.

Wellington Amphitheatre is located at 12100 Forest Hill Blvd. in Wellington. Visit

Totally Radical '80's Party

Kind of like Cher, the '80's just won't go away. Rather than fight it, you might as well join the party. On Thursday at 8 p.m., Stout Irish Pub is hosting a neon, hairspray, and acidwash party of its own with rad drinks, an '80's themed menu, and poppy beats.

Stout Irish Pub is located at 3419 N. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 754-223-5678, or visit
