Along with being a great dining month in South Florida (because of all the promotions I’ve written about), September is also Hunger Action Month. This is a nationwide initiative created by Feeding America, and eight CityPlace restaurants have jumped on board to help benefit Feeding South Florida.
When you buy the menu item(s) featured with this campaign during September, $1 from each item will be donated. The restaurant that raises the most month will be receive the Restaurant Partner Award.
Where to go in West Palm Beach’s CityPlace: City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill, Jamba Juice, Revolutions, Copper Blues Rock Pub and Kitchen, Galley at Hilton West Palm Beach, Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Mojito’s Latin Cuisine & Bar and The Shack. Each venue will have specific dishes related to the Food & Fun(d) campaign, such as Mojito’s sampler (pictured) with ham and cheese croquettes, empanadas of your choice, Mojito wings, bacon-wrapped Maduros, Masitas de Puerco and dipping sauces ($19). Nothing like eating and donating at the same time—excellent time management!
Honor Grandparents Day with cookie decorating class
For Grandparents Day on Sept. 9, Palermo’s Bakery in Boynton Beach is putting the icing on the cake, er, the cookie. From noon to 2 p.m., there will be a free cookie decorating activity at this pastry spot, with two free cookies included with the purchase of any of the delicious items at Palermo’s. Plus each grandparent with child receives a free pasty. I am a fan of the bakery, from the breads to the cakes to the rolls and more. The only problem I have is deciding what to buy. Reservations are requested for the cookie decorating event; call 561/737-8500, 401 N. Congress Ave., Boynton Beach.
