Desserts After Dark at River Landing

On Saturday, local entrepreneur and event creator Brad Matthews launches Desserts After Dark, a grownups-only spinoff of his popular Miami-born event Dessert Wars, one of the largest dessert-themed festivals in the U.S. More than 40 vendors at River Landing will pair boozy desserts with spirits, beer, and more, including ice cream and confection creators to distilleries, breweries, and wineries. General admission and VIP tickets include a custom five-ounce beer glass, a Dessert Wars T-shirt, and access to all vendors, with one-hour early admission for VIP ticket holders. As with Dessert Wars, two competitions will take place — one for food and another for beverages — to decide the city's top vendors. 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, January 29, at River Landing Miami, 1400 NW North River Dr., Miami. Tickets cost $55 to $75 at dessert-wars.com.

Major Food Group's Sadelle's Opens in Boca Raton

Major Food Group's answer to all-day dining, Sadelle's, has opened its second South Florida location — this one at the Boca Raton Resort. The New York-based restaurant, with a flagship location in SoHo, is known for brunches that feature classic items like bagels, sliced-to-order salmon and sturgeon, eggs, and chopped salads. The menu is nearly identical to the one in New York City, offering a selection of comfort-food items like pigs in a blanket, omelets, a smoked-salmon platter, and triple-decker sandwiches. 501 E. Camino Real, Boca Raton; sadelles.com.
