It's the end of the workweek, and you know you busted your ass. Whether you're working hard in your dream job or hustlin' in a job you despise, the obvious is inevitable - you need a break, damn it. This weekend, there are plenty of activities to celebrate the end of a week full of mundane activity right before you start another. This weekend in Broward and Palm beach county, choose from food truck events, a 5K run at a brewery, attending a Marlins game in style and more for your fun events.


Food in Motion
What's better than a slew of food trucks for the foodie at heart? How about some free beer, free admission and free parking? Thanks to Food in Motion (located at Peter Feldman Park at 310 NE Sixth St. in Fort Lauderdale), attendees can enjoy artisan food and a green market at 5 p.m. instead of waking up at the crack of dawn, when these markets usually take place in the morning. Indulge in the healthy food so you don't feel too guilty about guzzling those brews down. This happens the second Friday of every month. Visit their Facebook page.

Tom's Place BBQ Food Truck and Parillas on Wheels
If you work or live in Delray, this event is made for you. Join in on a spectacular lunch from Tom's Place BBQ at Saltwater Brewery, located at 1701 W Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach from 1:30 until 5:30. Boss man doesn’t want you sneaking out for lunch? Starting at 6, grab some dinner with Parillas on Wheels for some authentic Argentinian style. Visit their Facebook page.


Marlins Game with Due South Brewery
It’s never too late to show some love for your Florida sports. Come to Due South Brewery (2900 High Ridge Rd. Suite 3 in Boynton Beach) at 1 p.m. to head to Miami to watch a Marlins game. Attendes will be taken on a motor coach and the event is $79 per person. Visit ballgameexpress.com to reserve tickets.


Native Movie Series
Florida is typically known for year round scorching hot weather, large abundance of them parks, bandwagon fans and weird crimes. This Sunday, celebrate Florid by attending Riverside Market’s Native Movie Series. Each Sunday in July, the beer garden will feature films shot or based in South Florida as well as a specialty craft beer from Native Lager. This Sunday, the movie choice is Wild Things and will be paired with Thunderhead Red. Sunday funday starts at 8 p.m. in 608 SW 12th Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Visit their Facebook page.

Salty Sunday Fun Run Series
Need to run off all that booze and terrible food you ate over the weekend? Saltwater Brewery will be hosting a monthly 5K walk/run the second Sunday of each month at 6 p.m. After you finish running, feel free to reward yourself with even more beer. The event is free. Visit their Facebook page.
