Organic Brewery is getting some tanks, lots of tanks. The Hollywood Beach brewpub with an ocean view is expanding into a full-scale production facility a few miles away.

The new facility is located in an industrial zone near I-95, just off the Sheridan Road exit, according to brewpub manager Johnny Quinones. Quinones also said that the brewery will add an extra 60,000 tons of beer, or an additional 3,000 kegs per month (five gallon kegs, that is).

Gary Rack's Fat Rooster Opening March 2 in Delray Beach

The Frito Pie is one dish served day or night at Gary Rack's new restaurant Fat Rooster in Delray Beach.
These days, it seems the best restaurant names are one-part adjective, one-part animal. Like the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. The Tipsy Boar in Hollywood. Or The Gluttonous Goat near Mizner Park. Just pick a farm animal, give it twist, and you're done.

That theme continues next month with the opening of South Florida restauranteur Gary Rack's latest concept, Fat Rooster, the new Southern Comfort-style restaurant located in the heart of downtown Delray Beach.

The restaurant will soon be offering Southern-style fare and American comfort classics morning, noon, and late night in a nostalgic, diner-like setting.

Twenty-one-year-old Oasis Café faces eviction by the city.

But soon, the simple enjoyment of some conch fritters and a piña colada alfresco will end once Oasis Café closes on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

The café, which sits on city-owned property, is being thrown out of the prime spot it's been on for the past 21 years.
