The spirited wine bar fetes grown-up grape-juice lovers of all varietals with a plethora of deliciously fermented beverages and savory eats alongside a cozy smoking room ideal for enjoying top-brand cigars. Settle in at one of the hardwood high-top tables or along the timber-culled bar with the mediterranean flatbread teeming with feta cheese, chicken, creamy hummus, and a smattering of kalamata olives ($8), or grab hold of the bumble-bee banini buzzing with a white-albacore-tuna medley in a warm, bready embrace ($7). Like Derrida's interpretation of Dr. Seuss, the deconstructed salad breaks down a list of ingredients for creative herbivores to choose from, including monterey cheese, sundried tomatoes, black olives, and a choice of drizzled dressing ($6). Myriad wine tapas such as the smoked salmon ($9), artisan cheese ($8), and toast-point trio ($6) complement the varied vineyard delights available in the fermentation emporium.

Boasting a bevy of brews, Yard of Ale pleases barley buffs with more than 20 sudsy beers on tap, 75 bottled brews, and a pub-grub menu to pair alongside them. With fine breweries represented, such as Abita, Brooklyn Brewery, and Framboise, diners can bask in golden brewski brilliance while sinking incisors into a corned-beef sandwich dressed in spicy Ale mustard ($9) or a portobello sammie stacked with roasted red peppers and provolone cheese ($9).

Produced by the Davis Islands Chamber of Commerce, the second annual Bluz & BBQ event sates senses with live music and barbecue from local vendors, contributing to the fundraising effort for the revitalization of the historic Roy Jenkins Pool, a Davis Islands landmark. Like any good roast-beef market, the currency at Bluz & BBQ comes in the form of Little Piggie Bucks, which are valid for a number of menu items including Yuengling drafts ($3), Cigar City Brewery drafts ($4), and barbecue plates ($6–$12). Event attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and a picnic blanket that doubles as a giant handkerchief to the event, ensuring comfort and cleanliness during six live blues performances from musicians such as Damon Fowler, a roots-rock virtuoso and Florida native.

Cameron Parker founded Orlando Pub Crawl, LLC in 2005 to organize the bar-going experience into a convivial group event. The company's primary mission is organizing trips for up to 1,000 revelers at a time, styled after themes and occasions including the Kentucky Derby, '80s Nights, and Cinco de Mayo. Partiers hop from bar to bar, enjoying complimentary drinks, admission, and other specials as they mingle and socialize amid festivities, games, and libations. The pub-crawl team can also tailor private crawls for groups of 100 or more, allowing companies, organizations, and poker-playing dogs to journey to bars in organized packs. But not all the company's events are drinking-themed: there are also madcap challenges such as The Amazing Mind Race, which sends teams scattering across cities to solve clues and discover checkpoints.

The Bricks serves up a menu of unconventional comfort cuisine in a laid-back, edgy setting. Taste-bud-teasing starters such as the kinky tuna, a wasabi pea and pistachio crusted ahi, seared rare and topped with lemongrass cream ($12), segue finely into main courses such as the bird and pig sandwich, which nestles its tastily terraformed layers of roasted chicken, bacon, brie, crispy apples, and agave nectar between Hawaiian sweet bread ($8). Alternately, the amsterdam clothes a naked baguette with a delicious ensemble of crunchy organic peanut butter and melted, smoked gouda ($5). Feel free to customize your own crusts by mixing and matching breads, spreads, and toppings at the peanut butter bar ($3–$4.50).

The Fox Jazz Café induces fork and toe tapping alike with a melodious menu of gourmet fare served amid two full bars of rotating live music. Hearty dinner entrees, such as the port-wine demi-glazed Dorsett filet, served with smashed potatoes and the daily vegetable ($28), and the chicken francoise of Razz Matazz, served with asparagus and smashed potatoes ($18), remind bellies of their dominance over organs that can't eat things. For lunch, cheer on the antiquated dance moves of a cakewalking crustacean with the ragtime crab cake ($11), or listen to the Louie Armstrong grouper's ($10) water-gargling rendition of "What a Wonderful World," as a cascade of fine wines and top-shelf spirits quench the thirst of any throats parched from singing along.
