Halfway to Halloween

For some, beginning of summer causes a panicky clutch near the area of their wallet (we’re halfway back around to the holiday season!), while others get all nostalgic and plan Christmas-in-July parties. How about a little taste of Halloween in June? Undergrounds Coffeehaus is having a weekend filled with costume opportunities. Channel your inner public-access-TV personalities Thursday at 7 p.m. with a Wayne’s World I and II viewing party. Those excellent enough to dress up as one of the mulleted duo will get a free coffee. The nautically minded have two whole days to express their inner seaman. Friday, starting at 7 p.m., see the Muppets Treasure Island, Treasure Planet, and Ice Pirates. Saturday, catch a Pirates of the Caribbean marathon with the first three films. Get your fill of the Undergrounds Coffeehaus’ current location (2743 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-630-1900), because it’ll be moving soon; check back with New Times for more information on the when and where.
Thu., June 23, 7 p.m.; Fri., June 24; Sat., June 25, 2011
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
