Stupid Sports and Social Pups

Just when you thought the endless football season was coming to an end, basketball kicks into high gear. Now, not only do you have to watch another sport you don’t care about but your Law & Order reruns are getting preempted on TNT. Oh, the humanity! Luckily, the Humane Society (pun intended) is here to help bring meaning back to sports night. Instead of getting dragged to just any old bar to watch the Heat-Raptors game at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, steer your sports fanatic over to Mickey Byrnes Irish Pub. Mickey’s will be hosting a “Layla’s Party Pack Unbirthday Party” to raise money for the Humane Society of Broward County. For a $10 suggested donation, you get a free drink, live music, a costume contest, an unbirthday cupcake, a raffle ticket, and the warm glow of knowing you helped animals you care about while watching a sport that you don’t. For more information about Layla’s Party Pack, visit firstgiving.com/ stephanieregis. Mickey Byrnes is located at 1921 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. Call 954-921-2317.

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.
