dining-outAre you looking to try out the Paleo diet — or have you recently started it and are looking for some new meal ideas? Whole Foods Market in Boca wants to help you out. Therefore, they’ll be hosting a Paleo dinner on Fri., Oct. 24th from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Lifestyle Center. For those unfamiliar to what it means to be Paleo, it’s a modern diet based on the diet of our ancestors from the Paleolithic era. Therefore, you only eat what your ancestors had access to many years ago. This means you avoid foods like dairy products, grains, legumes, processed oils and refined sugar.

For this dinner, Chef Jimmy will be whipping up some fantastic Paleo recipes and will share his knowledge about the diet. Cost is $10 per person and will take place in the Lifestyle Center. Space is limited. Tickets must be purchased in advance through EventBrite.

Whole Foods Market is located at 1400 Glades Road in Boca Raton. For more information visit Whole Foods Market online or call 561.447.0000.

We’re nearing the end of October and that means that one of South Florida’s largest Halloween events — Moonfest — is coming soon. This annual event, held in Downtown West Palm Beach, returns on Sat. Oct., 25th starting at 7:00 p.m. Tickets to the street party — for those 21 and over — are just $7 when purchased in advance and $10 the day of the event. In addition to General Admission tickets, RIP (aka VIP tickets are also available). These tickets include an open, premium bar, a buffet and preferred entrance to Moonfest — and cost $50 in advance or $70 on the day of the event.

Moonfest does tend to get a little wild, so be prepared for an evening complete with well-costumed characters running around, live music food and drink — definitely not for those looking for a relaxing , laid back event.

This annual event is expected to draw over 20,000 costumed guests and like last year, it will be gated and ticketed. It will take place along Clematis Street and Quadrille Blvd from 7:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.. There will be 3 stages, 20+ live performers, an Audioplayground Silent Disco (to scare and zombies and vampires dancing throughout the night). At midnight, there will be a costume contest, so be sure to dress up — and the winner will go home with a $1000 cash prize. For food and drink, expect to see food trucks and drink vendors scattered throughout the area + a variety of merchants and street performers ready to entertain. Area restaurants will be opened and be offering drink specials to the guests.

Essential Info:

Entrances are located at the intersections of Quadrille Blvd and Banyan Blvd, and at Quadrille Blvd and Datura St. Guests can bring in small purses, but coolers, backpacks and large purses will not be provide.

For more details about Moonfest or to purchase tickets, please visit www.moonfestevents.com or call 305-879-2906.
