Five South Florida Food-Related Events This Weekend: Seminole Hard Rock Wine and Food Festival and More
After weeks of hard partying and rough wakeup calls, Halloween and Oktoberfest have packed up and shipped out until next October. But don't let that rain on your parade this weekend. The forecast calls for mostly clear skies and a comfortable mix of food- and drink-related activities in Broward and Palm Beach counties. After the jump, find a list of five events going down this weekend in South Florida.
Laine Doss Steve Martorano will flex his cooking muscles at Sunday's Seminole Hard Rock Wine & Food Festival.
5. National Learn to Homebrew Day at BX Beer Depot
Most food "holidays" can and should pass by unnoticed, but those pertaining to (good) beer deserve a little nod. Saturday is Learn to Homebrew Day, a day established by the American Homebrewers Association in 1999 to help foster the homebrew community. Interested in joining the movement? BX Beer Depot in Palm Springs will host a National Learn to Homebrew Day event from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. Reserve a spot online or call 561-965-9494 for more details.
4. Feast of Little Italy
Stuff your face with spicy meatballs and sausage this weekend at the Feast of Little Italy. (You can work all the food off by playing bocce and dancing to live music throughout the event). In addition to cooking and wine demonstrations every day, there'll be special highlights like the Costellos pizza-eating contest at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and the Sorrento Cheese Building for Charity at 1 p.m. Sunday. The festival is 3 to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 each and free for kids ages 12 years and younger. Parking is free, too. The festivities are in Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter.
