Let’s heat things up in our glasses for Bourbon Heritage Month in September, and start by announcing a four-course bourbon pairing dinner on Sept. 4 at City Cellar in CityPlace.
Angel’s Envy Bourbon Whiskey is pairing its products with Chef Rolando’s dishes that include coffee-rubbed Wagyu short rib, confit duck with black garlic-cherry BBQ sauce, and a lot more. Cost is $75 per person (excluding tax/gratuity) and starts at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required.
The Louisville, Kentucky, bourbon company calls this a “Toasting the Trees” event, which means when a drink picture is shared during September, a white oak tree will be planted to ensure there are bourbon barrels for years to come.

Chef Clayton Carnes to open BBQ spot
Yes, The District in West Palm Beach just celebrated Steam Horse Brewing Company’s opening this week (and the big, free block party is Aug. 18), but the area isn’t done with surprises. Now Grandview Public Market says Celebrity Chef Clay Carnes, who has his popular street-food restaurant, Cholo Soy Cocina, is opening Cholo BBQ at the market soon (no specific date yet). Carnes’ menu will definitely include smoked brisket. More Chef Carnes is not a bad thing!
Dunkin’ Donuts goes kosher with Boca venue
The Dunkin’ Donuts at 21401 Powerline Road in Boca Raton is popular, and it became even more so this summer with its conversion to kosher/vegetarian. There are others in Miami Beach and Hollywood, too, but that appears to be it for Florida. The Boca location is certified by the Orthodox Rabbinical Board.
The Canton, Mass., company has more than 11,300 Dunkin’ Donuts locations worldwide, including in 36 countries. All that since in 1950, Bill Rosenberg opened the first one in Quincy, Mass.
