Strolls

Sushi and Stroll: Delray Beach's Morikami Museum is the tranquil setting for a series that combines a pleasant garden walk and delicious sushi. Friday evening's themed stroll, titled Summer in Japan, adds to the ambiance with wind chimes, Japanese apparel, yo-yo balloons, taiko drumming and cups of shaved ice. There's also a guided audio tour of the gardens, but, please, tell us more about the shaved ice. We're sweating over here! 5:30-8:30 p.m. at 400 Morikami Park Road. $6-$8. 561-495-0233 or Morikami.org. — Phillip Valys
