Ben & Jerry: Few businesses in America have been run with the kind of chutzpah that Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have used for their premium ice cream venture, Ben & Jerry's Homemade, Inc. They've done everything from naming ice cream flavors for that ultimate hippie Jerry Garcia (Cherry Garcia) to holding a nationwide essay contest to find a new chief executive officer a few years ago. Well, that CEO (actually found through an executive search firm) is gone and they now have a new man at the helm: Perry Odak, ex-CEO of U.S. Repeating Arms Co., the maker of Winchester rifles. Ben and Jerry will be at Nova Southeastern University's Breakfast Forum at the Wyndham Hotel Fort Lauderdale Airport (1825 Griffin Rd., Dania) today to discuss, among other things, how Odak fits in at the company that makes Peace Pops, some of whose profits support causes such as gun control. Tickets cost $50 (hey, you get a big breakfast). Call 954-262-5352 for more information. (JO)

Donald Lipski: Ambrosino Gallery's jaw-dropping new space in a converted warehouse (3095 SW 39th Ave.) is the perfect setting for Donald Lipski's assemblages fashioned from household items, industrial objects, trees, and junk. Lipski's mind-bending pieces, on view through March 29 in an exhibition titled "Pond Life and Other Recent Work," include two saws wearing a pair of children's rain boots; a poetic amalgamation of tree roots, a violin neck, and concrete; and an elegant painting fashioned from razor blades. One fascinating, morbid work pumps red liquid through a length of plastic tubing over and over again. Admission is free. For gallery hours and information, call 445-2211. (JC)
