Grab a beer. Get dressed up. And dig $5 in change out from under the Funyuns-flavored cushions of that old mustard-colored armchair. It's the weekend, people. And it's time to party.

Now maybe your bank account is still recovering for Tortuga. Or maybe you’re tapped out just from paying the bills. Either way, one thing is for certain: your ass is broke. But that doesn’t mean you gotta stay home.

Where you wanna go? Fort Lauderdale? West Palm? The Springs? Lake Worth? Well, there is five-buck fun to be had in all of those hoods, from tonight's live tuneage at Johnny Q's Restaurant & Sports Lounge to tomorrow's Lord of the Rings-themed burlesque show at Respectable Street to Sunday's Record Store Day 2015 mini-fest at Radio-Active.

Here are five things to do under $5 this weekend in South Florida.

Read on and stay cheap!
