The chefs at Chima will tend the grill for Riverwalk Trust's Get Downtown.
• Fort Lauderdale's largest, outdoor happy hour is back on April 9. The Riverwalk Trust's Get Downtown series, now in its 12th year, brings the party to the streets with food, entertainment, and drink all for $20 ($25 at the door). Sample bites from YOLO, Bova Prime, Chima, Cold Stone Creamery, Riverside Hotel, Sublime, and more as you listen to tunes from local band, Bounce. Admission also nets you two free drinks. The shindig starts at 5 p.m. in the Plaza at Las Olas (in front of YOLO at 333 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Get tickets at

Cafe Vico is hosting a wine pairing dinner and foodie movie next Wednesday, March 24. The five-course dinner starts at 7 p.m. and includes a mingle hour where you can sample the restaurant's signature martini plus passed hors d'oeuvres. The meal will include eight wine selections, and concludes with a screening of Penelope Cruz's Woman on Top. The dinner and a movie costs $65; RSVP is required.

Capital Grille is debuting its new Artist Label Wine Series this week with a small batch Cabernet Sauvignon crafted by winemaker Thomas Peffer of Alaton Vineyards in Napa Valley. The label itself, a work entitled "At Peace," was painted by artist Dean J. Baer. Proceeds from each sale will go towards Share Our Strength, an organization combating childhood hunger in America. The small-batch wine had a little over 7,600 bottles produced, and will be available through April 25 at Capital Grille restaurants nationwide.

• With all the openings at Gulfstream Park lately, the renovated racetrack is becoming quite the food hot spot. On March 27, though, it will also become the scene of a grisly murder  (dun dun DUN!). That's when the Ten Palms restaurant will host its Murder Mystery Dinner Party, an interactive dinner and show set in 1920s Georgia. It's like Clue, only with more prime rib. Tickets  cost $40 per person; RSVP by calling 954-457-6974.
