1. That'll do, Pig

SouthFlorida.com dining critic Mike Mayo begins the week with a review of "an unassuming watering hole" in Dania Beach named the Portly Pig Gastropub. Mayo found lots to like in the 40-seat restaurant, including the Clydesdale, a 1-pound meatball topped with San Marzano sauce and Parmesan. Hold the horse-meat jokes. Mayo did.

2. Walking the walk

Photographer Jim Rassol went backstage and near the runway during this weekend's Delray on the Runway Fashion Show, part of the fifth annual Delray Beach Fashion Week. I know nothing about fashion, but I'm down with the cotton-candy-beehive hats.

3. Wingin' it

The big-money Pegasus World Cup International horserace came and went Saturday at Gulfstream Park, but not before celebrities such as Pharrell Williams, Jermaine Dupri and Post Malone stepped in front of Jennifer Lett's and John McCall's cameras.

4. Can you hear me now?

You may want to wear earplugs to Empire Stage's production of "Communion," Daniel MacIvor's play about a dying woman's attempt to mop up the mess she's made of her life. Leda, the woman, is understandably raging against the extinguishing of her light, and as Christine Dolen notes in her review, she has a tendency to erupt "volcanolike" when talking with her therapist and her estranged, born-again daughter, who was recently released from prison. You'd yell, too.

5. 'Hamilton' and 'Hamilton'

Rod Stafford Hagwood reports that "Hamilton" will play the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach sometime during the center's 2019-2020 Broadway season. This follows last week's announcement that the show will arrive this December in Fort Lauderdale. Don't act as if you don't care.
