Thursday is the first day of the 2013 South Beach Wine & Food Festival. In our interactive timeline (below), we take a look back at the indulgent and now-famous South Beach Wine & Food Festival last year, in 2005 and back in 2001, when it was still known as the "Florida Extravaganza."

Pablo Malco, born in Brooklyn and raised just outside of Houston, always felt like something of "a misfit" in his youth. His parents are from the West Indies/Trinidad and even when he moved to southern California at the age of 16, he struggled to find a community with the diversity he craved.
Changes are ahead for one of the country's largest museums dedicated to showcasing and preserving Japanese culture and history. Tom Gregersen, senior curator of the Morikami Museum in Delray Beach, is leaving his post after 35 years with the institution.
