So we are counting the days until Savor The Avenue on March 27—our favorite annual foodie event,\ and a great way to experience Delray Beach at its best. Five or so years ago, one of our employees had heard of a similar event in Park City, Utah—and wondered why we couldn’t do it here, in Delray Beach. We partnered with Marjorie Ferrer and Laura Simon of the Downtown Development Authority, and before our very eyes, a table five blocks long appeared down the middle of Atlantic Avenue. Scores of restaurants stepped up to the plate, people came, and the most exciting dinner party in South Florida was born.

Over the years, the party has grown and improved, and it always sells out. This year we have a poster of the event—reproduced from a gorgeous oil painting by Delray artist Pati Maguire—for sale at the event. And we’ll be raffling off the original painting, with all proceeds benefitting the new beach pavilion project.

We’ll also have my favorite weatherman, Steve Weagle, on hand to emcee the event. This is how much I trust Steve Weagle: I have actually called him days before a scheduled outdoor fashion shoot to get his take on whether it will rain. I am not saying I think he’s the weather god or anything, but it’s pretty close. We are thrilled he will be joining us!

Laura Simon tells us the event is sold out, but she said you still might be able to snag seats due to cancellations, which do occur.  So keep trying your favorite restaurant (list here), and we hope to see you there.

I’m sure Steve won’t let it rain…
