Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in Delray Beach This Weekend: Meat the Hotdoggers

Mat McBane
The Wienermobile. Seen around town.
In this age of politically-correct food and organic farm-to-fork dining, we'll share our guilty pleasure.

The hot dog.

Sorry, Farmer Joe. Your beautiful produce is great, and we love a good heirloom tomato, but every now and again, we get a hankering for a hot dog, resting in a white bread roll, slathered with plenty of yellow mustard. That's called comfort food at its best. Which is why the thought of having our picture taken with the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile gives us a frisson of pleasure.

Joe's Seafood Shack
Follow the shark and get free snow crabs!
Joe's Seafood Shack is opening the doors to its new 320-seat restaurant on March 19 at 11 a.m. If the name's got you a little confused, yes... the chain is nationally known as Joe's Crab Shack, but the new restaurant is called Joe's Seafood Shack out of respect for another restaurant in the neighborhood, according to a company rep.

To celebrate the new restaurant, Joe's Seafood Shack wants to give you crabs. The crabs, of course, come in the form of delicious edible denizens of the sea for which the seafood chain is famous. The first 100 guests on opening day will win free crab for a year. Each winner will receive coupons redeemable for one free bucket of snow crabs each month for a year.

With a past that includes topless donut shops and kitschy theme restaurants, Fort Lauderdale has not historically been known as a culinary hotbed.

That, however, has been changing for quite a while. With an onslaught of new culinary events, Fort Lauderdale is working to heighten its image in the foodie world. The next and newest event, Flavors of Fort Lauderdale, headed by Chef Allen Susser, is attempting to bring together and showcase the city's culinary talent, while highlighting the importance of sustainable seafood.

Sounds like pretty cool, huh? But we know the tickets are not exactly cheap. Lucky for you, we have a pair to give away.
