Where to meat

So as not to be con­fused with the 2016 an­i­mated com­edy, or any other im­age that comes to mind when you think of “Sausage Party,” River­walk Fort Lauderdale will call its in­au­gu­ral cel­e­bra­tion of tubu­lar meat Oc­to­ber Sausage Fest. Much bet­ter, right? Tak­ing place 2-6 p.m. Oct. 21, the event so far has con­firmed par­tic­i­pa­tion from Dutchy’s Gourmet Sausages, Holy Cow Food Truck, Ken’s Wee­nie Wagon, the Down­towner and, of course, your fa­vorite sausage food truck, Sausage Party. Visit Go River­Walk.com.

A new sound

This is your first week­end to see the four 6-week-old warthog piglets at Zoo Mi­ami. Born on June 20, the warthogs (think Pumba from “The Lion King”) can be found in their en­clo­sure with their par­ents, gen­er­ally in the morn­ing, with view­ing time in­creas­ing as they get more com­fort­able with their sur­round­ings.

Leave the kids

Per­fect vodka

The name Per­fect Vodka has come off the 20,000-seat am­phithe­ater in West Palm Beach af­ter the end of the spir­its com­pany’s two-year part­ner­ship with Live Na­tion, with the venue re­vert­ing to one of its many old names, Co­ral Sky Am­phithe­atre, for the time be­ing. But, of course, we love our vodka around here.

The evening will in­clude vodka-in­fused dishes from top lo­cal chefs, Joey Gianuzzi (Farmer’s Ta­ble), Blake Malat­esta (MIA Kitchen & Bar), Jessie Steele (Death or Glory) and Thomas Op’t Holt (50 Ocean), each served with a spe­cial cock­tail. Din­ers can cast a vote for their fa­vorite cock­tail, which will be fea­tured at the 2018 South Florida Gar­lic Fest. The din­ner runs from 7 to 9 p.m. All-in­clu­sive tick­ets cost $45.
