Union of tasty plus healthy menu items including Lettuce Wraps and Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Mmm! Caffe Luna Rosa right near Atlantic Ave. thats a combo we can all live with! My final suggestion of an excellent restaurant that not only has excellent service and atmosphere but allows you to stick to your healthy food plan is the House of Siam For healthy appetizers try: brown rice. is something that everyone should enjoy.

An arts patron can access the parking garage above our space, walk down streets then attend the evenings Arts Garage performance. The Theatre at Arts Garage model embodies The Pineapple: The Arts Garage recently celebrated its one year anniversary, and the Tyrrell: it music or theatre. Any rst year of a new endeavor is full of unknowns, which make all of our triumphs so much more meaningful. The extraordinary community response weve experienced couldnt be more gratifying, but our focus has to be on the future, and how we can continue to provide art thats both meaningful and fun. (Alyona Ushe, Executive Director of Arts Garage chimes in) Arts Garage was created nature encompasses all art forms and disciplines.

PAGE 20 The Delray Beach Pineapple Drew and The Woo is a regular Pineapple series that follows two young professionals as they look for the perfect night out in Delray Beach. Theyll need a happy hour, a sub-20-buck dinner, some live music and a late-night hot spot. Call it a scavenger hunt, bar crawl or even a mild bender. Either way youre going to want to follow in their footsteps. At the end of the year, Drew and The Woo will select their top choice for each category and invite the whole city to come out and join them for The Best Night Out In Downtown Delray. HAPPY HOUR MAXS HARVEST Maxs Harvests motto is Farm to Fork and the menu is chalk full of local, fresh, organic goodness. And with the introduction of their new $5 happy hour menu this June, Maxs Harvest has made themselves even fresher to our locals. Drew: Could this place smell any more delicious? Ryan: Incredible. People dont realize how much better food tastes when its produced, grown and prepared correctly. Im always psyched when a great restaurant chooses a downtown Delray Beach location, but Im actually proud Maxs Harvest chose to be here. Drew: Particularly right in the middle of our favorite downtown area, Pineapple Grove. Ryan: It really ts here so nicely. Open for just over a year, the Maxs Harvest team is totally comfortable here. General Manager, Kevin Fegan and Executive Chef, Chris Miracolo are not only rewriting what a restaurant should serve, but also what restaurant should be. Drew: I hate to sound infatuated but Ive literally got nothing negative to say about this restaurant, not one thing. The food, atmosphere, service, and now happy hour, are nothing short of amazing. Ryan: Speaking of that happy hour, what exactly does it entail here at Maxs Harvest? Drew: From 5-7pm you can order dishes like Tequila Cured Salmon, Deviled Heritage Hen Farm Eggs, and the always popular, Goat Cheese Croquettes, a favorite among our group, for 5 bucks a piece. Ryan: A favorite? I think our small party of 12 ate four dozen of those glorious little cheese balls. Drew: Okay, but we already knew the food was phenomenal. Lets discuss the key to a truly great happy hour. Ryan: Ahthe drinks! Yes, even with the cocktails, Maxs Harvest goes the extra mile. In addition to the typical beer, wine, well combo, Maxs gives its guests a true taste of summer with offerings like, Summer Sangria or Mojito Heritage. Both made with locally grown fruit, of course. Drew: And whats the price of those tasty signature drinks? Ryan: The magic number, 5 bucks. So perfect for sipping in their secret back garden, its tough to get our group to head to the next spot. Drew: Youre one of the ones thats making it so difcult. Ryan: Can you blame me, I mean, us, for wanting to stay here the rest of the night? HIWAY BURGER A new burger joint with a retro s vibe. Enjoy quick service and a tight menu. Burgers, fries and shakes, anyway you want em. Drew: I like that the choices here are simple. Its like In & Out Burger, minus the jetlag. Ryan: I disagree. This place is for sure a step up from any fast food chain. Even the best burger joint doesnt have burgers like this. In fact, theyre also not as fast as these slick, paper hat wearing burger jockeys. Drew: What? Ryan: You know burger jockeys. Drew: No I dont, and I dont think anyone else knows what youre talking about either. Lets get back to the food. Aside from a killer burger that can be ordered single, double or triple they have fries and shakes that really make the meal magic. Ryan: Theres something so wrong, but so deliciously right about dipping french fries into a chocolate shake. Drew: You know what else seems sorta wrong? The fact that we BOTH ate for under $20. Ryan: Good point. For those of you new to the Drew and The Woo series this category usually calls for us to spend under $20 apiece on dinner. But tonight we spent $20 total, which is crazy. Drew: Not to mention, we could barely nish our meals. Heck, we shared an order of french fries and of course, both had a shake. Ryan: The value here is almost too good to be true, but trust us Hiway Burger is the real deal. TIM FINNEGANS IRISH PUB An authentic Irish pub located just outside of downtown Delray Beach. Live Irish music, Friday through Sunday from folk to rock. Drew: Looks like the live music has ended a little early here tonight. Ryan: Yeah, but luckily we know this place well. Lets talk about whats expected at Tim Finnegans. Drew: Well, you can usually expect an Irish rock band or two to take the stage on Friday and Saturday nights and traditional Irish folk music Sunday afternoons. Ryan: I think our readers probably have a good grasp of Irish rock music. So, whats the deal with Sunday afternoons? Drew: A group of about 8-10 musicians circle together and play an variety of unusual and unique instruments, some that I cant even name. Its super interesting. Ryan: Whats cool, too, is the folk dancing that breaks out on Sundays. Youve got people locking arms, whipping around this bar like theyre back in the old country; its quite a sight. Drew: I think it really speaks to the authenticity of this Irish pub. The menu, all Irish fare, the music, genuinely Irish, and the people are certainly from Ireland. Ryan: Its pretty fantastic to see a bar where the owner and the patrons are completely committed to tradition. Drew: You can tell what comes rst here, thats for sure. Ryan: Irish tradition? Drew: No, the customers. DELUX Downtowns infamous nightclub. Expect dancing, shot slamming, bouncing around, drinking andmore dancing and drinking. Ryan: Easily my top spot for making memories in Delray Beach. Drew: Really? Because usually I cant remember anything after a night at Delux. Ryan: Zing! Drew: Its true. You step inside this windowless building, with real deal bartenders and a DJ that knows how to keep the energy way up, and next thing you know, youve been dancing for 6 hours. Ryan: Well, those are the memories Im referring to. Where else in Delray Beach can you dance and drink for 6 hours? No food. No obnoxiously loud band. No out-door seating. Just a hopping club thats t for South Beach. Drew: Ive got to admit; theyve pulled a top notch DJ once again. Rather than winding our night down, it looks like were ramping it up. At midnight! Ryan: Yeah, totally. A night at Delux is like a night with Cinderella. Drew: I dont even want to ask, but I must. How is a night at Delux like a night with Cinderella? Ryan: Well, at the beginning of the night youre enjoying a nice party, taking a few spins around the dance oor and having a casual drink with some random youve just met. Next thing you know, youre jumping around with a bunch of friends who have magically reappeared, your ride is gone and youre missing a shoe. Drew: Huh. Thats almost exactly how my night went. Ryan: See, I told you Delux is where the magic happens. Taxi. Bed. Sleep.Want us to consider your favorite local hangout? Email us at The Search for The Perfect Night Out: PART VII
