Safety Harbor food tours are held Saturday afternoons.

Mobile kitchens, a local beer launch and events that blend food and wine with local art this weekend.

Go nuts at 5 p.m. Friday during the Brew Bus Hazelnut Spread Porter Launch in Tampa. Hosted at World of Beer, guests are invited to sip on the hazelnut creation (introduced on Nutella Day last year), plus other Tampa Bay Brew Bus beers. Arrive early — the release party's supply of the porter will likely go fast. Free, money for beer. 2815 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, 813-559-1530.

At Lutz's TPC Tampa Bay, grab lunch on green from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Surf and Turf Truck, Le'Anns Cheesecakes and More, Disco Donuts, Flip'n Tasty and Zesty Tsunami are the participating vendors. Drinks, available at the full bar, and live music will be featured as well. The event marks the golf course's first food truck rally. Free, money for food and drinks. 5300 W. Lutz Lake Fern Road, Lutz, 813-949-0090.

Also, at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, check out the Food and Art Tour in downtown Safety Harbor. The walking tour, which meets up at John Wilson Park, will take diners and drinkers on an nine-stop trip for tastes of the town. Try sweets from Pick Your Poison Cupcake Cafe and more while learning about local art and history. $50. 401 Main St, Safety Harbor, 1-800-979-3370. 

And for those looking for an even more artful end to their day, the Nature's Food Patch cafe is hosting a local art and wine tasting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, where folks may sip, mingle and meet artist Matt Sunderman of Liquid Sol. Free. 1225 Cleveland St., Clearwater, 727-443-6703.
