Restaurant News: Charley's Becomes Chart House, Vivo's Offers Lunch Deals, Dara Torres Tends Bar
• And the deals just keep on coming. At Tony Bova's new Vivo Partenza they're offering 10 weekday lunch specials for $10, everything from a Prime burger and meatball sliders to summer salad of haricots vert and mussels bianco. There's also a happy hour with 50 percent off all drinks $15 and less and half off appetizers at the bar. Lunch special hours are Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Happy hour is from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
• You might think Olympic swimming medalist Dara Torres's favorite liquid is water, but for at least one day next week it will be booze, when the 12-time champion is a celebrity bartender to raise money for diabetes research at Delray's City Oyster & Sushi Bar. Joining Torres to benefit JDRF Ride to Cure will be LPGA golfer Michelle McGann and other local luminaries. There will be free munchies and a raffle too. The event takes place Thursday, Aug. 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
