Five Best Food and Drink Events This Weekend: Seafood Fest, Drunk Zombies, and More
4. BBQ Friday
Barbecue is good; free barbecue is better. This Friday at 6 p.m. C & I Studios is hosting a free barbecue with hamburger and hot dogs. The evening includes live music and a movie screening of the awesome Napolean Dynamite. There is no cost to attend. Beer and cocktails are available at Next Door (next door to the studio).

3. LDUB Zombie Crawl II
Some of us like to get so drunk we look like the walking dead on a Saturday. Others simply want to dress up. This Saturday the second LDUB Zombie Crawl is going to be creeping its way around Lake Worth -- it's going to fill in some scenes for a local low budget. Attendees are strongly encouraged to dress the part. The cost to attend is $15, which will be donated to Big Dog Ranch Rescue and RedTrunks. It includes food and drink specials at several local establishments. Check in is at South Shores Tavern and Patio Bar between 4 and 8 p.m. The crawl starts at 7 p.m. Visit facebook.com/events.
2. Wine Around The World - International Wine Tasting and Silent Auction Fundraiser Event
We all wish we could take a world culinary around the world. Unfortunately, money comes in the way. Your chance to fake it is here this Saturday at Wine Around The World - International Wine Tasting and Silent Auction Fundraiser Event at Off the Hookah. Taking place from 5 to 9 p.m., the tasting includes a selection of small bites and wines from around the globe, which are being paired by Michelle Barrineau of Palm Bay International Wines. If that's not enough to get you going on a Saturday night, live entertainment will be provided, including fire belly dancing shows and live DJs. Benefitting Green Children's House (a Montessori school in Pompano Beach), the tasting is raising funds for the GCH Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund. The cost to attend is $30 per person.

1. Pompano Seafood Festival
This is South Florida: if you don't enjoy eating seafood in the sunshine, you have a problem. The three-day festival offers almost every kind of fish and shellfish imaginable in almost every preparation that comes to mind. The chance to do both is here this weekend at the Pompano Seafood Festival at the Pompano Pier. A Blue Moon Brew Pub and a Miller Lite Beach Bar will be offering cold libations throughout the event. Admission is $15. Kids under 12 are free. The festival takes place Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visit pompanobeachseafoodfestival.com.
