Five South Florida Food & Drink Events This Weekend: St. Patrick's Day and More
Jessica Daly Sunday is St. Patrick's Day -- slainte!
What happens when the worlds of spring break and St. Patrick's Day collide? A hot, drunk mess and South Florida will have a lot of cleanup to do come Monday morning. In the meantime, there are plenty of ways to party away the weekend with food (but mostly drink) in hand. Not into the whole frat party scene? There are alternatives to consider, as well. Find some food- and drink-related fun in Broward and Palm Beach counties, after the jump.
5. Opening party for Third-Annual Peeps Show
If green beer and shepherd's pie don't rev your holiday-eats engine, skip ahead to Easter with the opening of the third-annual Peeps Show from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in downtown Lake Worth. Admission is free, though hanging with the sugar-laden artwork may inspire you to stock up on Easter candy on the drive home. One caveat: don't attempt to eat the art.
4. Food trucks at Bedner's Farm Fresh Market
A Saturday afternoon spent out in the country air, picking your own fruit, and getting lunch from a food truck is the antithesis of crowding into a packed beachside bar rife with wasted spring breakers in various degrees of undress. Get the kids out of town and check out Bedner's Farm Fresh Market between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday. In addition to tons of food and drink options, there are kid-friendly activities and plenty of ways to tire out the youngsters.
