Where the sands of Hollywood Beach end, the sand at Taco Beach Shack begins. Though this restaurant isn't quite on the beachfront, it's just a block away, and with the restaurant's sand floors, you'll barely notice you've strayed from the ocean. This place offers large portions (don't hurt yourself on those nachos!) served alongside a nice breeze, frequent live music, a 20-foot screen for watching key sports games, and a sexy lounge area with modern outdoor furniture for schmoozing it up after imbibing a few of those $3 margaritas on Mondays or $4.50 Presidentes. Though this casual joint is ostensibly classified a "Mexican" restaurant/bar and you can't go wrong with the roasted corn or the cheesecake burritos for dessert, the Korean short rib tacos are the truth, Ruth! Yet the most important item on the menu seems to be a good time. Ping-Pong tables were brought in for the Super Bowl, and on Cinco de Mayo, they passed around sombreros, fake mustaches, and... a live donkey. Andele!

Due South Brewing Co.

"I really want to drink some skunky imported beer tonight," said no one ever. Instead, you want good fresh beer, and you want it cheap. Due South Brewing helps fulfill those lofty goals of not drinking bad beer. The brewery is a full-production affair, so don't mind the giant fermenters and conditioning tanks. There are no secrets as to what goes in the brew: You can literally see the sacks of grains and hops, and, most important, taste the difference in beer quality when it needs to move only 100 feet from where it's brewed to where it's poured. It's inexpensive as well, with 12-ounce pours starting at $3.50 and 16-ounce pints (actual pints, not those fake 14-ounce glasses) at $4.50. There's enough space in the tap room and the main space to hold upward of 100 people, but most of the time, you'll find just a couple of dozen locals enjoying a cold one and a game of cornhole. For those looking to grab some fresh beer on the way home from work, growler fills are available. With new beer creations flowing in and out, food trucks stopping by weekly, and the nicest and most enthusiastic staff, you're bound to find yourself making this industrial-style business your hangout.
