Titular Tuesdays and Wry Wednesdays

Any night of the week, you can take a date here. An actual big banyan tree out front is so downright magical that you’d think some sort of Irish elves make the delicious homemade cinnamon ice cream inside of it. Indoors, there’s dim lighting and dark wood everywhere you look. It’s homey and romantic. It’s loud but not too loud; music plays five nights a week. You can talk, but you don’t need to constantly talk (no one likes filler). At the Field Irish Pub & Eatery (3281 Griffin Road, Dania Beach), you have options.

If it’s your first date, you probably know nothing about this person (this is the internet age; we can all be creeps). Does she like the Beatles? We won’t go as far as to say that you can never trust a person who doesn’t like the Beatles, but we will say you can trust a person — at least for one night — who does like the Beatles. You can trust anybody if that one night is in a bar. In a crowded Irish bar. A place where it’d be natural for you to drink, to get that liquid courage to converse with an unfamiliar human. You can do anything to the backdrop of feel-good Beatles tunes! Ah, sounds relaxing already. But this is better than a jukebox filled with nothing but Beatles songs! Every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., a Lennon/McCartney Beatles tribute band called 2 of Us plays. They’re charismatic. They smile. During Christmas, they wear Santa hats. So what happens when the duo, George VanDyk and Bryan Hinton, throw in a sad melody like “Eleanor Rigby”? Make out?

Now, if you want to ruin a date, find out if she likes Rod Stewart. She doesn’t? Take her back to the Field at 7:30 p.m. on a Wednesday because she’ll definitely hate the Rod Stewart impersonator who performs there weekly. His name is Hot Rod. He’s sorta old but somehow manages to do a billion pushups on the bar. Watching him can kill your libido. Call 954-964-5979, or visit thefieldfl.com.
Tuesdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 15. Continues through Nov. 29, 2013
