South Florida Food and Drink Events This Week: Funky Buddha Beer Dinner, Ice Cream Social, and More
For the first time in what feels like forever, we had a pretty awesome -- i.e. sunny -- weekend. Unfortunately, all good things come to end. It's time to head back to the fluorescent lights of your cubicle from the hours of 9 to 5. On the bright side, this week brings some awesome evening food and drink events. Whether you're looking to eat some ice cream, take a cooking class, or attend an awesome Funky Buddha beer dinner, there's something for you to do to minimize your midweek boredom.

Ice Cream Social With a Modern Twist
Ice cream socials are usually reserved for elementary school fundraisers -- not grown-up gourmands. Not anymore. On Monday from 6 to 8 p.m., The Ancient Olive is hosting an ice cream social with a unique twist. Blue Bell ice creams will be paired with gourmet toppings like blood orange olive oil, cinnamon pear balsamic served over Italian cream cake ice cream. Anyone who spends more than $15 on olive oils gets a free pint of ice cream to take home and 60-mL bottle of extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar. The event is free to attend.
The Ancient Olive is located at 514 E. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Call 561-266-1099, or visit theancientolive.com. RSVP at bluebelltasting.eventbrite.com.
