Circus Playhouse for Adults
True born-and-raised Floridians probably remember Circus Playhouse in Hollywood. Long gone now, it was a progenitor of the ubiquitous Chuck E. Cheese but so much better. Lionel the Lion played ringmaster to a cast of animatronic animal friends. Nothing like watching an enormous gray hippo in her tiny pink tutu as you gorge down school-lunch-styled pizza while pumping tokens into the skee ball machine. Anyone who shares such memories is not only a Florida lifer but way past childhood. Luckily, Dave & Busters (3000 Oakwood Blvd., Hollywood) caters to overgrown children who love arcades just with more alcohol and fewer children. On Tuesday, Dave & Busters and the Hollywood Gazette will soothe your Peter Pan complex and your conscience by allowing you to Party With a Purpose. From 5:30 to 7 p.m., your $10 donation to the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood will get you free hors doeuvres, half-priced cocktails, door prizes, and more. But, sadly, no amount of money will bring back Lionel and his animal friends. Dave & Busters is located at (3000 Oakwood Blvd., Hollywood.) Visit artandculturecenter.org, or call 954-921-3274.
