Weekend brunch, and Bark N Brunch at Grille 401

Another brunch option for your to-try list: Grille 401 (401 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954/767-0222) has started a weekend brunch, with seven entrees such as the shrimp & grits, crab cake Benedict, chicken & waffles and more. And if you prefer to dine with your canine furkid, watch for the monthly Sunday Bark N Brunch, with the next one on July 10, and then Aug. 7. This is a dog-friendly brunch sponsored by Tito’s Vodka, with all proceeds from the day’s bottomless Bloody Mary Bar sales donated to a different local shelter each month. Your furry companion will go home with dog treats like toys, bandanas, collars and other fur-faves.

Celebrate June with luxury scotch dinner: 3030 Ocean

As the first summer month comes to a close, it’s a good time to celebrate with a Johnnie Walker Luxury Scotch dinner. We’re glad someone else was in the same frame of mind, so check out 3030 Ocean’s five-course dinner on June 30, featuring whiskies paired with dishes from Executive Chef Adrienne Grenier. The 7 p.m. dinner costs $150, and will be presented at 3030 Ocean (3030 Holiday Drive, Fort Lauderdale; 954/765-3030) also includes a trunk show and presentation from a scotch master.
