Tangelos & Taqueria
Treat winter guests to Countryside Citrus’s Ocean Drive location in Vero Beach. In addition to savoring the last of the honeybells, its exclusive variety of tangelo whose season ends January 31, the family farm opened El Sid Taqueria next door to the market. Latin American bites include empanadas, elote and tacos—the Gringo with ground beef and cheese is just like mom’s.

More than the designer behind a major accessory house, Stuart Weitzman also collects shoes. The Flagler Museum exhibits his private cache in “Walk This Way: Historic Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection” from January 28 to May 10. Dozens of shoes from lace-up boots to T-straps to stilettos present a timeline of women’s and world history told through fashion.

Come out to the Jupiter Island Club Golf House on January 30 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County’s annual fundraiser. Besides a great a cause, the garden-themed gala draws 300 attendees for its live music—Bob Hardwick Sound performs this year—and auction items such as a tour of Charleston’s private gardens, custom orchid house and 18K-gold palm tree cuff links.
A couple of medical colleagues are trying their hand in the restaurant business. Apparently, they’re naturals too. Since opening Tequesta Café for breakfast and lunch over the holidays and expanding to weekend dinners this month, they’ve gained a steady local clientele. Popular items (in addition to strong coffee) on the classic American menu are Belgian waffles, eggs Benedict and lobster rolls.
