Volunteer Drinking

If you would like to help out troubled teens without interrupting your busy drinking schedule, come out Saturday to Seminole Hard Rock’s First Pub Crawl. A small donation of $15 in advance or $20 at the door benefits Covenant House of Florida, a nonprofit that helps at-risk young people under 21, including teen parents and their children — while you drink. So, as the mature and responsible adult that you are, you’re free to get your drink on from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at eight Hard Rock clubs. The fee also includes free entry to an afterparty from 10 p.m. to midnight at Gryphon Nightclub, where there will be a surprise guest DJ. To pay in advance, visit youngpros.net or blacktie-southflorida.com. To pay at the door, check in just outside the Lucky Street garage elevators or at the center fountain in Seminole Paradise (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Do your part: Help the teens at Covenant House stay on the straight and narrow path by wandering as far off that path as you can. After all, you wouldn’t want to stand in their way.

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.
