A Story By

Hey South Florida, we’re back with another roundup of the best happenings from all over Miami-Dade and Broward this weekend. This week’s list is a foodie’s dream – from a flavorful Caribbean-inspired 4-course dinner, an Asian-fusion vegan cooking class, and even a Girl Scout Cookie and beer pairing event (who knew there was even such a thing?!).

Check out more below for the full rundown of the best things to do in South Florida this weekend. Remember to stay safe by wearing your masks, practicing social distancing, and most of all, enjoy your weekend! 

Events This Weekend

Wine and dine yourself this weekend and indulge in a night of Caribbean cuisine with a delicious 4-course meal from Caribbean-favorite food truck Di Big Jerk! This special dinner also features a beer pairing with each plate for 4 (5oz) pours of specialty beer.

The menu includes a starter of passionfruit jerk-glazed shrimp crostini or rose belly rockfish ceviche, a surf and turf main course of blackened snapper topped with mango salsa and a side of braised Oxtail with cilantro coconut rice and island slaw, and of course dessert – Jamaican rum bread pudding with a butter rum sauce. If you’re already drooling like we are just reading that, get your tickets below!

🗓 MAR 12 | 7PM–9PM
📍 LauderAle Brewery | 3305 SE 14th Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316

If dinner and a show is more up your alley than a beer pairing, The Dinner Detective Interactive Mystery Dinner Show is the perfect night out! 
If you’ve ever been to a mystery dinner theatre performance, this one is guaranteed to be a unique experience. Unlike typical shows, you won’t be watching a handful of actors stiffly reciting lines in front of the room. The action will be happening all around you, and any person in the audience can end up being a part of the show, even you! Throughout the night, you’ll find yourself wondering if what just happened was scripted or real!

Girl Scout Cookies and beer may sound like an odd pairing, but Tarpon River Brewing has curated a flight of four craft beers selected specifically by their head brewer to go perfectly with the classic cookies. Whether you’re team Thin Mint or Samoa, Tagalong or Do-si-do, you’ll be sure to love this tasting!

The pairing will feature four different Girl Scout cookies and a beer flight of four 4-oz Tarpon River craft beers along with a tasting card that describes each beers’ flavor profiles. There will also be a kid-friendly milk flight option with three different milk flavors to complement each cookie, so the whole family can enjoy!
