Drinking and dining are some of South Floridian's favorite pastimes, but these indulgences all that much better when they're for a higher purpose. So for anyone feeling like a Good Samaritan this Saturday, there's Cheers to B, a charitable mixology competition and mixer kicking off at Fort Lauderdale's Antique Car Museum.
