The San Fransisco-based website OpenTable released its 2018 "best" list last week and a popular Palm Beach restaurant made the list. 

Buccan, a staple on Palm Beach known for its inventive small plates prepared with quality ingredients, has been once again recognized by OpenTable by being included on its 2018 list. Buccan has been a hot spot in Palm Beach since chef/co-owner Clay Conley and his partners, including Sam Slattery and Piper Quinn, opened it in 2011. The restuarant has become a regular on the OpenTable "best" lists over the years, including monthly tabulations of best "hot spots" and "best overall in Miami/Southeast Florida".

The results are in; Das Beer Garden offers the most diverse variety of craft beer in Palm Beach County.

America has seen an enormous boom in the craft beer market, with beer enthusiasts demanding more complex and tantalizing varieties than the previously dominant light lagers. As recently as 2012, the duopoly of Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors controlled nearly 90 percent of beer production.

In the last decade, independent breweries have expanded by a factor of six, and while Americans are actually drinking less beer than they did in the 2000s, they’re often opting for a superior product, like one of the 100+ beers available daily at Das Beer Garden in Jupiter’s Downtown Abacoa.

Craft breweries have focused on tastes that were

The Florida “cold snap” this weekend has lows in the 60’s rolling through, producing ideal conditions for sailfish cruising through. Kitefish with goggle eyes in 120-250’ of water, and after your first sail, target a tighter area around that depth. A few dolphin are still in the equation off Palm Beach Inlet, but no strong numbers seem to be showing up.

The snapper bite has been solid lately, with large muttons and yellowtail congregating on the reef. Live ballyhoo, sardines, or midsized pinfish work great.

Inshore fishing has slowed down quite a bit, with Snook and redfish becoming finicky to the tide. You’ll have to feel out each spot for what tide works best, and keep a close eye on it once you figure it out.

Southeast Florida pays homage to Louisiana and all things in common with the Sunshine State.  On November 9, National Louisiana Day recognizes the state that brought us such treasures as Jazz, Creole, Beignets and Mardi Gras.

Louisiana has a moist subtropical climate just like South Florida. Both states are "classic" examples of a sultry climate with long, warm, humid summers and short, mild winters. Comparatively, Tampa and New Orleans are relatively similar in climate.  Tampa has less rainfall and precipitation.  Florida claims more sunny days than Louisiana too. The comfort index is higher in Florida as well.

Both Florida and Louisiana are on the Gulf Coast of the United States. It is the coastline along the Southern United States where several
