Over the course of the next couple of weeks, yachts of all shapes and sizes will be descending upon the City of Fort Lauderdale like drunk dude-bros on Taco Bell at 4 a.m.

Tickets to the show range from about $22 to $42 per person. And while getting in will give you up-close and personal access to the boats, the crews, and the 1 percent owners and buyers, there's no need to fork out the cash -- or deal with the craziness -- if you're just looking to sneak a peek of the actual motor vessels themselves.

Starting now through after the show, the eateries lining the Intracoastal Waterway offer prime views of the yachts making their way to and from the annual party event. Here are the five best places to get in on the action, without actually attending the 55th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Florida Grand Opera (FGO) is poised to start another successful and well-rounded season this fall with fan favorite, cross-cultural drama Madama Butterfly, which enjoyed a well-received run in Broadway. While the opera might recall a romanticized idea of elitism, the FGO has continuously managed a varied and accessible repertoire of works that appeal to seasoned lovers and newcomers to the art.

But nothing gets off the ground without a little bacchanalia and the FGO, which will have three of its productions at the Au-Rene Theater in the Broward Center for the Performing Arts will celebrate the season's kick-off with a cocktail party at III Forks.

As much as we love eating, all-you-can-eat doesn't sound all that exciting -- it conjures images of sweaty salad and gray beef.

Food festivals, on the other hand, encompass unlimited chef-prepared food (and booze) without the pallid meat and soggy veg. It's pretty much a win-win.

The streets will be overflowing with gourmands in the food capital of South Florida this weekend. Delray Bash is taking over Old School Square, with dozens of local restaurants, plenty of booze, and craft beer.
