Weekdays are the worst, unless you live in South Florida where we refuse to let a moment go by without cramming it full of entertainment.

Whether you're looking to relax and recover from the weekend, or would prefer to fill your weekday evening with distracting doings, there's something for you to do in Broward and Palm Beach counties this week.

Time to Roll!
Sushi has become the go-to food for those looking to keep it light when dining out of the house. The only problem: It's freaking expensive. Learn to do-it-yourself at Publix Aprons Cooking School Monday at 6 p.m. The hands-on class will explore a number of exotic maki roll. The cost to attend is $50 per person.

Subculture Coffee Grand Opening
If you've been biting your nails, waiting for a small batch coffee roaster to make its way into the confines of Broward and Palm Beach Counties (aside from the very awesome Oceana Coffee Roasters in Tequesta), it's time to give those finger tips a break. On Monday at 7 a.m., Subculture Coffee is opening its doors with its house roasted artisanal coffees. The shop will be welcoming guests from 7 a.m. to Midnight. Visit

Monthly BYOB Dinner
Seeking out other foodies to hang with can be a trying endeavor. Rather than come off as a creeper while trying to find friends in the cheese section of Whole Foods, why not head to monthly food club dinner at Le Bistro in Lighthouse Point. Monday at 7 p.m., the restaurant is hosting a four-course dinner with a table full of likeminded gourmands. The cost to attend is $50, plus a bottle of wine of your choice. Call for reservations ASAP, 954-946-9240.
