Father’s Day in South Florida

213

This year, treat dad to a Father’s Day weekend event featuring over 70 beers and ciders, burger tastings and live music. The PGA National Resort & Spa will host the Third Annual Craft Beer Festival & Burger Bash on Saturday, June 14 from noon to 4 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will go to DreamRide and Special Olympics Florida, events that celebrate the achievements of Special Olympics athletes and honor these outstanding men, women and children living with intellectual disabilities in our communities. PGA National is partnering with Brown Distributing, Creekstone Farms, Yelp, Localdines.com and more to showcase an impressive array of food and drink. The packed roster of fun also includes live entertainment by Jason Cardinal from noon to 2 p.m., and The Kinected from 2-4 p.m. A vendor village with food sampling and a charity silent auction will also be highlights. Area restaurants will have booths where sliders are provided for tasting, and will compete for the title of Palm Beach’s “2014 King of All Burgers” against the hailing 2013 two-time winning champion, Chuck Burger Joint in Palm Beach Gardens. Attendees choose their favorites and vote in three categories: “Best Burger,” “Most Innovative Burger,” and “Best Non-Beef Burger.” This year, a concert on the green follows the event from 5:15- 7 p.m. featuring Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett accompanied by the New Orleans Suspects. Ticket packages including the post- concert festivities are $60. “This third annual event is the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day weekend with beer and cider tastings, delicious food from local chefs, live music, as well as determining the best burger in Palm Beach” says James Gelfand, vice president of Special Events. Tickets are $45 in advance ($50 at door). To purchase online visit the ticket website at www.pgabeerandburger.eventbrite.com.
