The Cooper bourbon/cigar dinner

Sit down to a five-course dinner, have a nice glass of bourbon, light up a cigar and enjoy the evening at The Cooper (4610 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens, 561/622-0032) for a “Bourbon and Cigar Pairing Dinner” on April 18. The bourbon is from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Kentucky; the cigars are from Ashton Cigars/Dominican Republic by Smoke Inn, and the guest speaker is David Ahearns, bourbon specialist with Republic National Distributing Company. Along with dinner (which includes a whole suckling pig!), every diner will receive three Ashton cigars. The cost is $92 per person, not including tax/gratuity.

Tryst 7-year anniversary party

The seven-year itch is striking Tryst, the Delray Beach gastropub, but the only thing they’re itching to do is complete another seven years with the same success they’ve had to date. So celebrate with Tryst (4 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561/921-0201) on April 22, as they host a “7-Year Anniversary Party,” starting with a free, open bar from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Yes, I said free. If you have dinner there, with menu items like the hangar steak (pictured), you’ll receive a complimentary glass of bubbly. Live music begins at 10:30 p.m., too. Sounds like a heck of a party!
