At the Fork Screening at Various South Florida Movie Theaters 
Whole Foods Market and the Humane Society are teaming up with the filmmakers behind the new documentary At the Fork by sponsoring private screenings of the film in select Florida theaters this Wednesday. The documentary provides a look at the nation's current animal agricultural system. According to Whole Foods Market, the showing is "part of a nationwide crowd-sourced effort to spark a national conversation about how animals are raised for food in America." The film will be shown at AMC Aventura (19501 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) and AMC Coral Ridge 10 (3401 NE 26th Ave., Fort Lauderdale).
Coral Gables' Dine Out 
Don't make plans for your midday meal this hump day. Dine Out, which will take place during lunchtime this Wednesday, encourages diners to eat out at their favorite Gables restaurants to show public support during the Streetscape renovations and counteract the perception that these restaurants might be closed or difficult to access during this time. The heaviest concentration of Streetscape construction will be on Giralda between Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Galiano Street, near restaurants such as Threefold Cafe, the Local, Talavera, the Bar, Divino Ceviche, and La Dorada, which all remain open. Dine Out asks lunchers to grab a meal between noon and 2 p.m.
Quintessa Wine-Pairing Dinner at Meat Market
This Wednesday, Meat Market returns with a four-course wine-pairing dinner curated by executive chef/co-owner Sean Brasel and pours from Quintessa Wine. The second of this year’s series, the dinner is priced at $150 per person and will take place at Meat Market’s flagship in Miami Beach at 7:30 p.m. Menu items include wood-grilled shrimp ceviche, fennel-crusted ahi tuna, charbroiled buffalo tenderloin, and crispy fried French toast. Limited seating is available. Reservations are required. Call 305-532-0088.
Kaiseki Dinner at Macchialina
A one-night-only kaiseki dinner will happen Wednesday at Italian eatery Macchialina. Chef Mike Pirolo and mixologist William Rivas will host the intimate multicourse meal, limited to eight seats.
