Funky Buddha's Ryan Sentz Apologizes for Last Night's Lines

The brewery on opening day.

Is the popularity of Funky Buddha Brewery too much to handle for staff and local beer geeks?

The short answer is no.

But when events get snarled, it becomes a learning experience for everyone involved. This was especially true last night at a growler release of a coveted and limited-release beer from the Oakland Park brewery.

Sweet Sriracha Chicken Lollipops ($10)
We have a lot -- perhaps an excess, really -- of National _______ Days in this country. If it isn't National Talk Like a Pirate Day, it's National Appreciate Your Furniture Day or some other such thing. (OK, we kind of love the former. Arrgh!)

Most people roll their eyes at this, but when 4/20 comes around... Well, they still roll... stuff.

Then afterward, they wanna eat stuff! Fattening stuff. Lots of stuff. Greasy, unhealthy, wonderful stuff. We have found the perfect restaurant for that.

We suggest Fork & Knife in Boca Raton.

The diner-inspired spot serves a wide selection of regional comfort fare from around the country with a wide selection of Michigan-inspired grub, all of which is made with a modern twist.

Florida's Berliner Bash Beer Festival Returns May 10

Sourheads, make note: May 10 has been announced as the date for third installment of the infamous sour beer festival known as the Berliner Bash, or Floridaweisse Bash, as it's becoming known.

In a change from previous iterations, the festival will be held at Green Bench Brewing in downtown St. Petersburg (only a couple of hours away). It had previously been held at Peg's Cantina in Gulfport.

For those who look quizzically at the term "Berliner" or "Berliner weisse," it's a soured wheat beer of low alcohol content that was a popular drink in 19th-century Prussia, and, as the name implies, Berlin. The "Florida weisse" style takes this traditional beer recipe and adds fruit to the later stages of conditioning, giving a hugely tropical spin on the otherwise supertart and acidic brew.

Kosher for Passover Coke is back.
Kosher Coca-Cola is back, folks, and there's a small window of opportunity to grab a few bottles of this holiday special beverage.

If you're asking yourself, "What the hell is Kosher Coke?" you're not alone. In fact, I just received an email asking if regular Coke has some hidden "pork products or something."

Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza Now Open in Delray Beach

Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza opened its second location in downtown Delray Beach this month.
No additions, no substitutions -- that's what the menu at Luigi's Coal Oven Pizza says. It's a philosophy based on the rules of the Verace Pizza Napoletana, an internationally recognized group of authentic Neopolitan-style pizza makers. It may also be why business has been good enough to expand north from the restaurant's original location in Fort Lauderdale, and into Palm Beach County.

Hailing from Naples, Italy, co-owner Luigi DeMeo has brought his signature coal-fired pizzas and chicken wings to downtown Delray Beach, opening a second location this month off Atlantic Avenue, just east of the train tracks in the space previously occupied by Paddy McGee's.

Truckstop: Fancy Food Truck Rally in West Palm Beach to Benefit LLS

Categories: Happening

While we're big fans of noshing on multiple dishes from several food trucks -- even if it results in a serious case of the meat sweats -- many a food truck roundup is just about stuffing your face; there's rarely a higher purpose.

Tomorrow night, downtown West Palm Beach is getting its first ever food truck rally -- with booze -- to benefit Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

The sophisticated event is bringing together some of the best food trucks in the region with expensive cars, craft cocktails, micro brews, and plenty of other fancy libations and entertainment.

Sing for Your Supper at Hard Rock Cafe: Get a Free Meal

Sing a song... get a meal.
Today, April 15, is tax day. Despite its nasty reputation, some of us out here will get the good news that there's a return coming to us. If that's the case for you, maybe you're up for a little sing-along -- especially if it leads to more fortune, in the form of a free meal.

Head out to Hard Rock Cafe tonight and "Sing for your Supper." Basically what you'll do is perform your favorite tune on the Hard Rock stage. In return, you'll be rewarded with a dish from their new menu selections (about a $14.95 value).

Here's how it works.

If there was ever a day created specifically for brunch, some could argue Easter Sunday would be that day. After a long morning of Easter-egg hunting and Peeps, there's nothing like a few mimosas and a sizable brunch buffet to revive you.

When the family festivities have died down and you're feeling a little stir crazy after church, head to any of these Palm Beach County establishments to get your brunch on. Whether you're in the mood for a little bowling or maybe even a high-class polo match, we've got you covered.
