Happy Labor Day! Ideally, as you read this, you're preparing for an afternoon of drinking on the beach and consuming your weight in roasted pig products (or potato salad, if that's more your speed). If you're still looking for something fun and food related to do today, Clean Plate Charlie has found a few Labor Day activities in Palm Beach and Broward counties. After the jump, find a roundup of food and drink happenings this week in South Florida.
Today (Labor Day)
Labor Day party at Deck 84
Need a waterside afternoon drink to celebrate the fact that you're not in the office? Deck 84 in Delray Beach is hosting an all-day patio party with drink specials on Skyy Vodka and Longboard Island Lager. They'll also have snow cones; spiked for the grown-ups or booze-free for the kiddos. The restaurant is also serving barbecue and hosting live music from 2 to 6 p.m.
Labor Day barbecue and pig roast at Muddy Waters
This meaty all-day affair at Muddy Waters in Deerfield Beach centers around a pig roast with specials on barbecued pork platters and other grilled and barbecued dishes. There also will be drink specials, like $2 draft Miller and Bud, plus other cheap eats.
Food truck rally at Arts Park
The popular weekly food truck rally in Arts Park in downtown Hollywood was rained out last week, but returns this evening from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. with a lineup that includes B.C. Tacos, Crazydilla, Dolce Cupcakes, Ms. Cheezious, and The Rolling Stove, among others. There's no cost to attend, but you'll need cash if you want to purchase food from the trucks.
