It’s officially been hitting the 80s for a bit now, so it’s time to find ways to cool off. Let me give you some suggestions:
Hilton West Palm Beach lines up poolside brunches
Here’s a chance to combine a pool with brunch and a theme. On Saturdays, so you have a whole next day to recover. Get your calendar out. The Hilton West Palm Beach has lined up three such events in April, which means the food is going to be very good—and the cocktails.
Ahoy, Matey! Poolside Brunch: April 6, 11:30 a.m.: Rum will figure largely in the concoctions for this brunch, but from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys can be had for $25 with your food. With music from DJ Rey Verges.
‘90s Flashback Poolside Brunch, April 20, 11:30 a.m.: The fact that ‘90s and the word “flashback” are used together is disconcerting, but technically I guess that’s true… Same drink and DJ plans as previous event.
Call of the Wild Poolside Brunch, April 27, 11:30 a.m.: Same plans as above, but I suspect a lot of animal-print bathing suits, right?
Cool down with National Beer Day on Sunday
Yes, it’s another national day to celebrate something celebrated every day. Because why not. National Beer Day is April 7—here are some specials for that:
Il Bellagio: Get your fix of Italian beer with two-for-one Peronis for just $6. CityPlace, 600 S Rosemary Ave. #170, West Palm Beach; 561/659-6160; ilbellagio.com
