Food truck rally in Hollywood
The weekly food-truck invasion in downtown Hollywood includes familiar favorites like B.C. Tacos, Dim Ssam a Gogo, the Rolling Stove, and many others. The roundup is 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. There's no cost to attend, but bring cash for the trucks. The rally is in Arts Park at Young Circle.
Festival of the Arts Boca preview party at Kapow! and Dubliner
Kapow! Noodle Bar and Dubliner are teaming up this evening to host a preview party for next year's Festival of the Arts Boca. The party is 5:30 to 7:30 tonight and the cost is $10 to attend. For that price, you'll get light bites from Kapow and two drinks from a selected menu.
Bake for the Rescues
Love dogs almost as much as you crave sweet treats? The Bake for Rescues from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Sundy House allows you to indulge the ol' sweet tooth while throwing a bone to Dizzy's Second Chance Rescue (a local dog rescue). The cost is $25 in advance or $30 at the door.
Christening of new ice cream truck at Jaxson's
In May, some jerk -- or a group of jerks -- stole away with the Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor Restaurant truck in the dead of night. Since the place is such a beloved South Florida institution, the story made waves. At 3 p.m. today, the restaurant will christen its new truck, playfully dubbed Miss Jaxson II. The event includes free mini ice cream cones and hot dog samples from National Deli.
Food truck night in Plantation
West siders can check out the weekly Plantation food truck invasion from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday in Plantation Heritage Park. There's no cost to attend the family-friendly event, but bring cash if you want dinner from the ever-changing lineup of food trucks.
Toys for Tots event at newly opened Pampas
Pampas Brazilian Grille recently opened its doors in CityPlace in West Palm Beach. They'll celebrate the start of their first holiday season by hosting a kick-off party for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation Teen Target from 6 to 8 p.m. The cost is $10 in advance or $15 at the door, which includes one drink and hors d'oeuvres.
