Better Block Party

West Palm Beach’s South End Neighborhood Association knows how to throw a block party. Instead of typical grills and lawn chairs, its “Fiesta on Flagler” on March 13 rounds up tasty restaurants like Table 26 and Field of Greens for Latin American fare, cocktails and live music. Proceeds support Family Promise North/Central Palm Beach County for the homeless. Reserve here.

Apizza Arrives

Stuart locals who graduated from Yale and Wesleyan universities in Connecticut are happy to see a new pizzeria specializing in New Haven-style pies like those in their alma maters’ hometown. Fantini’s Apizza also imports New Haven’s term for pizza, along with coal-charred crusts and specific toppings, inspired by Italian immigrants who created a regional version of the Neapolitan classic.
