Restaurant News: Market 17 Coming to Lauderdale, Wild Wednesday Happy Hour at Wild Olives, Publix Delivers Fresh Alerts
• Even giantsupermegamarket Publix is getting on the "fresh, seasonal" bandwagon with something called "At Season's Peak." Go here and you can sign up for email and text-message alerts to tell you when your favorite fruits and veggies might actually have real flavor instead of tasting like those wax imitations in crappy pseudo-fruit bowls. Best now, according to the website, are cherries. Next month, the freshest bets should be melons and figs. You've been warned.
• They're even happier on Wednesday and Thursday nights at Todd English's Wild Olives with the soft pop piano stylings of Chenzo Balsamo, who tickles the ivories from 8 to 11 p.m. Wednesday happy hour has been extended to 8 p.m., meaning half-price drinks from noon and half-price apps at the bar from 3 p.m. And all night Thursday, women can drink up and chow down for half-price, so guys, suck it up and reach for your wallet.
