Halloween Pop-Up at Death or Glory

116 NE Sixth Ave., Delray Beach

This week, Death or Glory in Delray Beach returns with its popular Halloween-themed pop-up cocktail experience. Through October 31, the female-owned cocktail bar and restaurant will be serving up plenty of spooky fun. The entire restaurant and outdoor patio/bar has been transformed into a scene straight out of a horror movie. The menu will also feature its share of seasonally themed drinks, from the "Dead on Arrival," a communal drink housed in a blood bag on an IV stand, to the "Lizzie Borden," an old fashioned served on an axe. The month will also bring a variety of activations, including Witchy Bingo in conjunction with the ACCF/Witches of Delray and fortuneteller evenings complete with free tarot card readings. Open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight.

James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein has opened La Cañita, a Latin- and Caribbean-inspired restaurant at Bayside Marketplace.

While Bernstein herself won't be present in this kitchen, she's the chef behind the menu, which offers a number of her signature favorites, from arroz con pollo and empanadas to sizable Cuban platters and a new "305 Rum Cake."
