1. Boo, yeah

At 29 years old, Moonfest has become as much of a Halloween tradition in South Florida as vandalism and tooth decay. Talia J. Medina headed north to West Palm Beach on Saturday night to document the freak scene on Clematis Street.

4. Family business

The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival will open this Friday with a screening of "Dreamland," the debut movie by Robert Schwartzman, known to some people as the frontman of the rock band Rooney and known to the actress Talia Shire as "son." Schwartzman and Shire recently talked to Ben Crandell about working together, hailing from a notable filmmaking family (Francis Ford Coppola, Nicolas Cage and Sofia Coppola are kin) and the inspiration of old movies such as Frank Capra's "Lost Horizon" and Federico Fellini's "La Strada." Of course, Crandell asked Shire about "Rocky" and her iconic role as Adrian, for which she earned an Oscar nomination. "And as I turned each page [of the script]," Shire recalls, "I went, 'Oh, my God ...' " I said the exact same thing the first time I heard this.

5. Lettuce give thanks

Mike Mayo reviews the Miami restaurant Plant Food + Wine: "The food is delicious, gorgeous and innovative, all the more astounding because it happens to be vegan. Everything is made from plants, plant offshoots or derivatives. It is simply amazing what this kitchen can do with fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, flowers and even seaweed." Rabbit, run.
