South Florida Dining Events This Weekend: Food Truck Rally and More
Saturday's culinary showdown at Wicked Awesome Snackbar in Boca Raton gives new meaning to the term "great balls of fire." The independent restaurant will host a meatball-eating contest with one catch; the chicken 'balls are spicy and some of them will be laced with ghost peppers. Those with the intestinal fortitude to handle such a challenge have a shot at the grand prize; one of every type of craft beer on Wicked's beer list. The action goes down at 7 p.m.
b>4. Bon Festival
Tickets are sold out for Saturday's Bon Festival at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, and in an effort to keep numbers in check for the popular event, no tickets will be sold at the door. That being said, if you're a Morikami member, you can still get in without a reservation or any additional charge. Just be certain to bring your membership card and an ID to the gate. The festival is 4 to 9 p.m. Find more details here.
5. Gourmet wine dinner at the Backyard Bar
The Backyard Bar in West Palm Beach will host its monthly wine dinner on Saturday night offering three courses, hors d'oeuvres, and Chilian wines by Morande. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. and the cost is $45 per seat, plus tax and tip. Reserve a seat by calling 561-339-2444.
