Un­quiet wa­ters

This is the fi­nal week­end of the Florida Re­nais­sance Fes­ti­val in Deer­field Beach’s Quiet Wa­ters Park, with a theme called Car­ni­vale Mas­quer­ade. Sounds like ’70s El­ton John to me. Info: Ren-Fest.com.

Week­end beer

I like my beer like I like my beer. I like it to taste like beer. Coffee, too. I put coffee in my coffee cup. Noth­ing else. So, Due South Brew­ing (Boyn­ton Beach) this week has its Café Ole Espresso Porter in cans. Beer and coffee to­gether. I should not like this. But the beer is from Due South, and the coffee is from Ar­gyle Coffee Roast­ers (Fort Laud­erdale), both con­sis­tent sources of thought­ful taste-mak­ing. So I trust.

Surf­ing celebrity and mo­ti­va­tional speaker Bethany Hamil­ton, whose re­cov­ery from a shark at­tack was chron­i­cled in the film “Soul Surfer,” will make an ap­pear­ance 4-6 p.m. tonight at BC Surf and Sport (1701 N. Fed­eral High­way, Fort Laud­erdale). A por­tion of the pro­ceeds from sales of Hamil­ton’s sig­na­ture sandal col­lec­tion will be do­nated to Friends of Bethany, a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion sup­port­ing sharkat­tack sur­vivors and am­putees. Hamil­ton lost her left arm in her at­tack at age 12. The first 200 cus­tomers to buy the sandals will get ac­cess to an ex­clu­sive au­to­graph meet-and-greet. Info: BCSurf.com.

Tapas danc­ing

Who knows if “My Big Fat Greek Wed­ding 2” will have the orig­i­nal plates­mash­ing charms to go with orig­i­nal stars Nia Varda­los and John Cor­bett when it de­buts this week­end? If it’s enough to in­spire your lo­cal Greek place to cel­e­brate the movie in some no­tice­able way on the menu, what’s not to like? Or your lo­cal movie the­ater could cel­e­brate the food. Sil­verspot Cinema (4441 Lyons Road, Co­conut Creek) will do it dur­ing Big Fat Tapas Tues­day, 6-8 p.m. Tues­day, with a fam­ilystyle Greek din­ner, mu­sic and danc­ing for $15. Among the eight Sil­verspot screen­ings on Tues­day are din­ner-friendly show­ings at 4:55, 7:10 and 9:25 p.m. Info: Sil­verspot.net.

Strik­ers an­tic­i­pa­tion

The Strik­ers be­gin their 2016 sea­son 7 p.m. April 2 against new­com­ers Mi­ami FC, a match that may soon ri­val those against the Tampa Bay Rowdies and New York Cos­mos for an­them-singing, name-call­ing in­ten­sity. Tick­ets start at $12. Info: Strik­ers.com.

Pump­kins un­plugged

The Smash­ing Pump­kins this week kicked off a new leg of their acous­tic-elec­tro tour called “In Plain­song,” which is sched­uled to con­clude May 1 at Fort Laud­erdale’s Broward Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts.

Os­car afterglow

Film­maker Court­ney Marsh will take part in a Q&A af­ter a screen­ing of her Os­car-nom­i­nated short doc­u­men­tary, “Chau, Be­yond the Lines,” next month at her alma mater, St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Laud­erdale. The ti­tle char­ac­ter of the 34-minute film is a teenager liv­ing in a Viet­namese hos­pi­tal for kids dis­abled by the chem­i­cal Agent Or­ange and, de­spite mal­formed arms and legs, dreams of be­com­ing an artist. “Chau” will be shown at 7 p.m. April 18 in the school’s Bienes Cen­ter for the Arts (2801 SW 12 St.), and will be pre­ceded by a meet-and-greet with Marsh.
