Spearheaded by "The Gridiron Griller" himself, former Miami Dolphins player John Offerdahl, the Gridiron Grill-Off congregates chefs from the top restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, and culinary-inclined celebrities as they prepare grilled grub for a tasting competition benefiting several local charities. Twenty teams comprised of Miami Dolphins legends including Dan Marino, and top Broward County food maestros concoct 20 delectable dishes that fans can sample, pair with wine or beer, vote on, and assemble into an indoor snowman. While nibbling on grilled bites, visitors also compete in a beanbag tailgate tournament with celebs and chefs joining top-ranked teams in the final rounds. Proceeds from the Gridiron Grill-Off support 4Kids of South Florida, Here's Help Culinary Program, and the Miami Dolphins Foundation.
Every day for the past 20 years, the team of adventurers at Island Camps has heard the call of the ocean's cresting waves. They've answered with a full slate of surfing and standup paddleboarding lessons and day camps geared toward beginners who might be hearing that call for the first time. Certified in first aid and lifeguard ocean rescue, they help students feel safe while instilling in them the skills needed to explore the wild blue yonder.
Since paddleboarding is easy to pick up, the team regularly leads newcomers on tours of the intercoastal waterways and Deerfield Island Park. During sunset and ecology tours, groups dip their paddles into cool waters while slipping past mangroves, wetland marshes, and the cave of the local sea lord. If you're looking for a more grounded experience, Island Camps also offers skateboarding lessons that teach basic skills and tricks such as the ollie.
Kevin Roth used to tour the globe as a dulcimer player and recording artist. It was mere chance that, on one such tour, he wandered into a tasting room for olive oil and balsamic vinegar. But the flavors—and the experience—stuck with him, and he opened up The Heart of the Gourmet. In addition to stocking infused olive oils, balsamics, and other seasonings and rubs, alongside pottery and furniture, he also holds tasting classes. The classes recapture Kevin’s initial encounter, teaching attendees how to dress food with new flavors.
