Things Will Be Great When You’re Downtown

Riverwalk Get Downtown is Fort Lauderdale’s largest outdoor cocktail hour. Your public drunkenness will not cost much: $20 donated online or $25 at the door gets you two drink tickets redeemable at YOLO bar, live music from Funkette (a Top 40 band that, oddly enough, played at the 2002 RNC and a Jeb Bush inaugural), plus free samplings from the area’s best eateries, including... mmm... Cold Stone Creamery, Rocco’s Tacos, Mancini’s Ristorante, and 12 others.

Riverwalk Get Downtown is from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday in the Plaza at Las Olas (333 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Buy online to get a $5 discount. Call 954-468-1541, or visit goriverwalk.com.
