South Florida Dining Events This Week: Halloween Parties, BeachBash, and More
III Forks and Catina Laredo Halloween party
III Forks and Cantina Laredo in Palm Beach Gardens are teaming up for a "spooky" tribute to Halloween with a DJ, salsa lessons, costumes, and pumpkin carving contests. In addition to the merriment are half-priced fajitas for two. The party is 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday making it easy to get up for work on time Thursday morning.
Halloween festivities at T-Mex Cantina
Expect to see many creative interpretations of sultry what-have-you costumes at T-Mex Cantina in Fort Lauderdale. The bar/restaurant is hosting a Halloween bash that kicks off at 4 p.m. Wednesday with two-for-one drink specials from 4 to 10 p.m. and a costume contest with judging at 9:30 p.m. The kitchen will remain open late to accommodate Halloween partiers.
Billing itself as "Fort Lauderdale's sexiest party of the year" the BeachBash from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday includes tastings by Tap 42, Hyatt Pier Sixty-Six, Rice & Dough, ARC Broward Culinary Institute, Bill Hasen Catering, and Chef George Catering. Valentino in Fort Lauderdale will handle food for the VIP area. In the interest of filling up the dancefloor, Premier Beverage will helm the open bar all night long so party-goers can get a swerve on. The festivities will be held in the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Panorama Ballroom. Tickets are $50 in advance or $65 at the door. VIP spots are available for $100 and $125, respectively. Call 954-739-5006. DJ Supersede, DJ for the Miami Dolphins, will provide the music for the event, which is part of the 17th annual Jeb Bush Florida Classic to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The Pub Pembroke Pines will host a Glenmorangie scotch pairing dinner from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday. The cost is $30 per person. Read more about the special event at "Scotchy Scotch Scotch, Down Into My Belly: Glenmorangie Scotch Pairing Dinner November 1."
