Palm Beach Zoo
This Saturday, enjoy a cocktail alongside some furry friends at the Palm Beach Zoo "Roar & Pour" event.
Congratulations, you made it through yet another working week. You might as well give yourself a pat on the back to celebrate -- or better yet, a drink or three.

There's no better time to get started than tomorrow, when you can ring in the weekend with a few rum drinks to celebrate National Rum Day. Or get your Polynesian on with an authentic, Hawaiian-style luau. If all that seems too routine, check out the Palm Beach Zoo after-hours for a chance to shoot a selfie with the zookeeper while sipping a few cocktails.

5. Celebrate National Rum Day at RA Sushi
Celebrate National Rum day this Saturday at RA Sushi with a Peach Basil Sour. The bar is shaking up some summer fun with a trio of refreshing new cocktails inspired by the seasonal ingredients. From now until September 30th, RA Sushi will be featuring specialty cocktails for $8 each, available at all three South Florida locations. You can get two holidays out of the way and order the Cinna-Punch next, a combination of Fireball cinnamon whisky shaken with blackberries, agave, cranberry and lime juice -- a nod to National Hot and Spicy day on August 19.

4. "Roar & Pour" at the Palm Beach Zoo
Lions, and tigers, and bears...and beer -- let's drink. As if visiting the zoo isn't already a great idea, the opportunity to imbibe and indulge while checking out a few of your favorite exhibits makes it that much better. This Saturday, join the Palm Beach Zoo as it hosts one of less than a dozen remaining "Roar & Pour" events scheduled through the end of October. The food and drink-filled evening begins at 4:30 p.m. with live music, a selection of grub from the summer grill, and drink service that begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Fountain Plaza. Bring your own blanket or chair and camp out while listening to The Kinected, or celebrate National Rum Day with a special rum drink. The party lasts until 9:30 p.m., giving you plenty of time to get a few selfies with the animals, or a chance to here the zookeeper talk.

3. PGA National Resort's Hawaiian Luau
Get your tiki on and head over to the Palm Terrace Restaurant at the PGA National Resort and Spa for an authentic Hawaiian Luau this Saturday. The menu is set for a Polynesian feast, including sweet rolls, tamarind-glazed chicken, and pineapple upside-down cake. The fun runs all day long, beginning at noon with a series of events. Make your own leis, participate in some pineapple bowling, paint a coconut, limbo -- event watch a hula dance-off. The night ends with the luau, and a fire dance show. Tickets are $25 for adults, and $12.95 for children under the age of 11.

2. Ritz Glitz Burlesque Show
Each weekend South Floridian show the world how to drink and dance the night away in style. Chances are, you'll probably end of doing both this weekend -- again. Or, you can drink and watch others dance the night away, instead. This Saturday, enjoy an evening of burlesque, cabaret and cocktails as Fort Lauderdale's Bar Stache and Pinned host its special Ritz Glitz review at 8 p.m. Afterwards, the bar will go into club-mode with its monthly Stache House Saturday featuring Roland Unomas spinning house until 4 a.m.

1. Taste of History Culinary Tour
Enjoy the last few days of summer calm, before the snow birds descend and make a mess of our streets, favorite haunts and watering holes. And what better way to appreciate all that is South Florida year-round than with a Taste of History Culinary Tour? This unique tasting event is where food and history meet; each month, the tour brings tasters to several historic South Florida establishments, eateries, and markets around Palm Beach County neighborhoods including Lake Worth, Lantana, Boynton Beach, and Delray Beach. Cruise in an air-conditioned bus as your guide points out local and regional historic facts. This Saturday, explore Delray Beach and Boynton Beach starting at 11 a.m. Visit TasteHistoryCulinaryTours.blogspot.com, or call 561-243-2662.
