6. 1,001 Moroccan Nights: For months, Pistache French Bistro in West Palm Beach has led its customers on a "tour of the world" -- or Tour Du Monde -- with themed nights celebrating a range of cuisine and culture, from Spain to Russia. Saturday night is the last stop with 1,001 Moroccan Nights, featuring a three-course Moroccan menu for $39 per person (the regular menu also is available). The evening also includes belly dancers and traditional Moroccan music.

5. Riverwalk Get Downtown: In the effort to get people to swarm the downtown area and sample the goods from a variety of restaurants and other local businesses, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale hosts a biannual Get Downtown event held in the Plaza at Las Olas Place (aka, the YOLO plaza). This season's event is set for 5 to 8 tonight, and the price to get in is $25 at the door. Find more details about who will be at the Riverwalk Get Downtown event.

4. Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival: New to the festival scene this year is the first-ever Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival. Though there's a cost to eat or drink at any of the participating vendors and seminars, there's no entry fee for the festival, so people can get a chance to scope it out and decide what they want to pay out for the day. The festival is 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday in downtown Delray Beach. Find more details -- including a full list of the six special pairing seminars -- by reading "The Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival is this Weekend: What's on the Menu?"
