We have recently moved from Minnesota to Pompano Beach and have friends visiting us for New Year's. We're 50 somethings who like really good food and wine but would also like to at least get a glimpse of the scene on New Year's Eve. We'd like to wander no further than Ft. Lauderdale proper (South Beach is just too long a drive on that night and we don't want to rent rooms down there) or Palm Beach. We were thinking to find a spot for some drinks early on (around 7 or 8) and then finish up with dinner at a nice place--like maybe Darryl and Oliver's Cafe Maxx in Pompano. That's a little sedate to bring out many folks we can gawk at so we're hoping to go someplace a little livelier for early drinks. What does anyone recommend? Or is there a place you can recommend where we can get both great food and still a peek at the folks who want to see and be seen? Thanks for your ideas.
