Cheers to new drink menus


New cocktails shake it up at Village Tavern

Sometimes, you just want a gorgeous cocktail in terrific surroundings. Village Tavern (1880 N. Congress Ave., Boynton Beach, 561/853-0280) announced a new specialty cocktail menu at a fun-to-drink-at bar, and we know the surroundings are half the fun! Try the Key Lime martini (pictured,, the Old Fashioned or Pineapple Upside Down martini. They also have 50 wines by the glass (note the half-price wines by the glass on Wednesdays), and have been recognized by Wine Spectator for their wine list. Happy Hour is every day from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The other South Florida location is in Pembroke Pines.

Turning up the drink heat at Anthony’s Coal-Fired Pizza
