The Wilder Side of Life
The Wilder (pictured above), 701 E Broward Blvd., 954.744.6398
David and Vanessa Cardaci – the people behind The Whole Enchilada, Poke House and The Procurer - have recently launched a space to mingle in a casual but stylish setting. The Wilder is a 3,500-square-foot space featuring three differently themed rooms: a modern yet classic bar serving libations, a patio terrace and a grand room suited for hosting sophisticated clientele. With a classily retro Floridian look and a drink menu focused on quality cocktails, the place appears set to provide a suave new landing spot for the local evening crowd.

Wine lovers and passionate painters have a new place to mingle. At Pinot’s Palette, you’ll enjoy a two- or three-hour paint-and-sip class directed by a local and trained artist. They also provide all the art supplies, aprons, wine glasses, corkscrews, plates, ice buckets and ice needed to relax and enjoy your evening. You might even find yourself visiting on a themed night, such as Wild Wine Night, Pinot in Paradise or Aloha! Even better, a portion of the proceeds from each class are donated to a charity.
