Haute Happenings In Palm Beach County: September 15-17, 2017

South Florida’s social scene is ramping up in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Here’s a quick run down of gallery exhibits, concerts, and hops-soaked happenings we look forward to attending this week.

Crafts and Craft Beer Pop-Up

When: Sept. 15, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
$$$: Free, food and beverage extra
411: Thanks to clever zymologists at Due South Brewing, we’re reminded how shopping and quaffing make excellent bedfellows. At this intimate pop-up, guests can get sauced on ambrosial brews and shop for clothing, artwork, jewelry, pottery, and other handmade wares from local purveyors like Black Orchid Soap Co., Brewtiful Apparel, H2Overboard, and others. Tucker Duke’s chef-owner Brian Cartenuto will be preparing beef dagwoods for the appetite afflicted.

Brad Paisley Concert

Where: Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansburys Way, West Palm Beach
When: Friday, September 15, 7:00 p.m.

411: Few musicians have the melodic radius like Brad Paisley. On Friday, the three-time Grammy Award-winning superstar returns to West Palm Beach to perform tracks from his new album, “Love and War,” and other popular songs including “Riverbank,” “Perfect Storm,” and “Whiskey Lullaby.” Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant, and Lindsay Ell fill in as opening acts. When he’s not crooning about trucking, water-tubing, and other popular southern pursuits, Paisley’s passionate about helping the less fortunate. With every online purchase of “Love and War,” he’s donating a free album to someone fighting cancer. Click here for more information.

“Made in Palm Beach Gardens” Exhibit

"Bowline" by John Cooksey
“Bowline” by John Cooksey

Where: Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, 601 Lake Ave., Lake Worth
When: Sept. 15-Nov. 18, 2017
$$$: Free
411: Beginning Sept. 15, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County debuts “Made in Palm Beach Gardens,” an installation featuring masterpieces by 14 artists who live or work (or both) in this dynamic bailiwick. In the late-1950s, insurance magnate John D. MacArthur transformed 4,000 acres of dairy cow grazing land into a verdant oasis known as Palm Beach Gardens. Today, the tree-shaded city’s a creative hotbed for both established and novice artists alike. “Made in Palm Beach Gardens” will feature paintings by John T. Cooksey and Lucy Keshavarz and photographs by David Charlowe and Dolores Kiriacon to name a few. All artwork will be available for purchase, meaning council-goers will have the opportunity to imbue their own abodes with a piece of MacArthur’s sylvan city.
