Getting a Lei Feels Good

Even on a Tuesday, Feelgoods in West Palm Beach demands a strict dress code — it knows its bar flock will dress to the nines. It knows its patrons will shine their shoes as well as the jewels on their T-shirts — and that’s not just because it’s the only way to enter the establishment. Some men just do that. And the ladies are able to win a cash prize of $125 every hour for being the “hottest dressed lady in the room.” Now, this particular Tuesday is the “Summer Luau 2010.” Nothing’s changed. Dress to impress, but the club will look different. It’ll be more akin to an island paradise. The Polynesian fire dancers swarming about will surely help contribute to this, because we figure they’ll be wearing something of the grass skirt variety, but we don’t guarantee. Just like how we can’t earnestly say what ladies will have to do to earn a lei tonight. But we’re sure it’ll be fun, not too difficult, and a little debaucherous. The lady with the most leis by the end of the night will receive a generous cash prize. There will be a limbo contest. As goes every Tuesday, women drink free the entire night, and they don’t pay a cover. Men, you pay $5 after 11 p.m. (the night starts at 8) at Feelgoods (219 Clematis St., West Palm Beach).
