While it could have been much worse, this weekend ended up being a bit of a wet one. Hopefully, your big plans didn't get lost in the rain -- or you chose to bring an umbrella. Either way, if you're looking to make up for time -- and fun -- lost on your days off, we have plenty of activities that will wet your palate this workweek. If you're looking to catch up on drinking some beer, celebrate birthdays, or dress up like the '70's, we have something for you in Broward in Palm Beach until you hit Friday again.
