The King Takes on the Jester

No fan base holds a bigger grudge against the Miami Heat than the Cleveland Cavaliers, whom LeBron James famously snubbed two offseasons ago when he announced on national television that he was leaving them for the sunny beaches of Miami. No one took it harder than Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, who took to the internet and wrote a scathing letter to LeBron, infamously calling him a fraud and writing the whole thing in comic-sans font. Since then, he's been a bitter douche and won't let it go, often taking to Twitter to mock LeBron whenever the Heat loses a game. So when James and the Heat host the Cavaliers on Tuesday, it'll be pretty sweet to watch him beat Gilbert's team into submission with his awesomeness. An alternative to hitting up American Airlines Arena would be to hit up Fat Cat's (320 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale). There are like 76 beer choices. It's right there in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Go straight after work and get the happy-hour specials. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. "Like" Original Fat Cat's on Facebook.
