Five South Florida Food-Related Events This Weekend: Rocco's Block Party, a Beer Bash, and More
2. Holiday events (a few family-friendly and one not so much)
The annual Breakfast With Santa at Palm Beach Zoo gives harried parents a chance to chow down on a breakfast buffet while the kids hang out with Santa and visit with some of the zoo's more child-safe animals. The breakfast is 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 10 a.m. Sunday. Get more details via the Breakfast With Santa calendar listing.
Meanwhile, you can celebrate the Festival of Lights at Chanukah Under the Stars tonight (Friday) in Mizner Park. Food trucks will roll in at 5 p.m. to give attendees a few hours of leeway to dine before the services begin at 7:30 p.m. Trucks on site will be Bites Gatrotruck, Gene's Joint New York Style Deli, Moty's Grill, Tacofresh, The Big Ragu, VeggieXpress, and 4 Alarm Pizza. Fit Foodz cafe will be selling latkes.
Need a kid-free holiday adventure? Pangaea will host A Snowflake Fantasy (a winter themed party) on Saturday night with music by OB One plus Zhantra dancers decked out in furs. Call 954-581-5454 for table reservations.
1. Rocco's Fifth-Year Anniversary
Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar in West Palm Beach is celebrating its fifth birthday this weekend, and you know what that means: Tequila dancing and tequila hangovers. Dig into piles of fresh guac and swill a margarita or two at the anniversary party from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday. The party coincides with a block party for Vanilla Ice's Toys for Tots event. Bring a new, unwrapped toy and donate to the cause.
