The Butcher Shop restaurant opens tonight in West Palm!

Carnivore alert: The Butcher Shop Beer Garden & Grill opens Friday night in downtown West Palm Beach. 

A sibling of Wynwood’s original Butcher Shop, the West Palm spot promises to be more than a restaurant. The hybrid concept includes a retail meat market, a full-service restaurant and a German-style beer garden. 

The meat market component is already one familiar to father-and-son owners Igor and Fred Niznik – the family owns the longstanding Charlie’s Gourmet Meat Market in Palm Beach Gardens. 

Grand opening weekend includes an invite-only “friends and family” dinner Thursday night and a VIP cocktail-hour party Friday samplings of the restaurants grilled meats, a beer tower and DJ-spun tunes. 

Adding a layer of downtown hip to the mash-up concept, there’s also a yoga class planned for Saturday morning, which donations to benefit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League

The Butcher Shop Beer Garden & Grill: 209 6th St., West Palm Beach

Drink ‘Game of Thrones’ wine. It’s so much better than getting beheaded.

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. But when you play the “Game of Thrones” wine tasting, everybody wins. Also nobody gets stabbed, decapitated, disemboweled, impaled, poisoned, burned alive, blown into a million little pieces or shoved out the Moon Door.  The HBO series based on George R.R.
