A lively little speakeasy on the Singer Island has quite a backstory. As the legend goes, McCoy was a moonshiner here in South Florida during the times of Prohibition.  He had a hidden speakeasy and a reputation for the best moonshine. People from all walks of life came to indulge in his spirits. To hide from authorities, McCoy had livestock and goats on his land.  The only problem was that the goats would knock over the stills and drink the moonshine.  Guests of the speakeasy loved to watch the drunken goats and relish the evening.

Two Drunken Goats Beach Cantina,  2509 Ocean Avenue, Singer Island, is located in the outdoor Ocean Mall on the municipal beach in Riviera Beach a/k/a Singer Island.  It is a lively place to grab breakfast, lunch,

 I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.  Have you ever wondered when did ice cream become bad, fattening and taboo?  It is usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Doesn’t sound sinister.  It’s time to revisit summer days of our youth and dive into a guiltfree, delicious ice cream cone.  

Before the development of modern refrigeration,I ice cream was a luxury reserved for special occasions.  With South Florida’s sunny days and tropical climate, it is typical to spend a day out on the salty beaches. Everyday is the Palm Beaches is a special occasion.  There is nothing more enjoyable than to cool down with an ice-cold confection occasionally. An ice-cream cone

En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air”, and it refers to the act of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view.

The Hobe Sound Murals Project was started in 2009 by professional local artist Nadia Utto and her "paint the town" initiative. 

You can currently find about 20 murals around the small beach town created by Nadia and 40 other artists along with the help of 100 residents and visitors. 

The purpose of the project is to "beautify specific locations, enhance civic pride, encourage positive networking and plant seeds for future cultural accomplishments."

The murals will send you on a treasure hunt, as each painting has a hidden aspect somewhere on the wall. You have to go to the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce to pick up a Mural Project Tour Map which will tell you what to look for.

The map lists nearly 30 locations including planned mural sites
