Marky Mark in the house!
Rapper turned actor Mark Wahlberg did the South Florida rounds on Friday.
First stop: Publix Liquors in Cooper City.
The actor, who now co-owns a brand of tequila, Flecha Azul, introduced thrilled shoppers to his 80 proof booze, signed bottles and took countless selfies.
A few hours later, Wahlberg kept the party going a little north, hitting up Rocco’s Tacos in Delray Beach for happy hour.
We were told the 52 year old arrived via convertible jeep with owner Rocco Mangel and was greeted by hundreds of excited fans eager to get a snap.
Once inside, Wahlberg jumped behind the bar to serve up shots and sign more bottles that were auctioned off for a good cause.
Yes. The events weren’t just to cause people to miss work, promote alcohol usage or salivate over a celebrity. Wahlberg was here to raise funds for the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by rock star chef Jose Andres that is feeding folks displaced by the Maui wildfires.
The charity cocktail, a Strawberry Basil Margarita, is available at Rocco’s until Friday’s happy hour.
The indefatigable Wahlberg then zipped up the coast to Palm Beach for an in-store appearance at the Virginia Philip Wine, Spirits & Academy’s tasting room.
The next day, the native Bostonian was back at it, visiting Tampa’s Luekens Wine & Spirits for more fun with wrestling legend Ric Flair.
And sorry to break it to you, Wahlberg, a father of four who now calls Vegas home, was not exhausted from all this social interaction. The fitness fanatic hit up a local gym in Tampa for a (booze free) workout.
