Black Friday Reckoning

Stuffed with turkey and tired of chasing sales on Black Friday? If so, why not spend the evening reveling in a good, old-fashioned reckoning, Miami Heat-style at Whiskey Tango, where you get 25 bucks off your tab if the Heat loses. Perhaps this venue will be full of everyone in South Florida who loathes the Heat as they abhor ruthless dictators and people who work at the DMV. The hatred is mostly toward LeBron James and his decision to join forces with Dwyane Wade. Sure, guys such as Kevin Garnett, a dude who called an opposing player a “cancer patient” during a recent bout of trash talk, are more deserving of vitriol. But, no, let’s reserve the real grudge for a guy who decided to work somewhere else when he finished his contractual obligations. That guy is the real jerk! So when the Heat stumbled out of the gate, the entire country rooted for the team’s demise while the mainstream media called the players gutless and soft. That’s fine. Haters gonna hate. And those haters can get 25 bucks off their individual tab if the Heat loses. But keep in mind, once James, Wade, and Chris Bosh find their game, there’s going to be a reckoning, and that whole tab’s going to be on them. How it works: Sign in to your server a half before the game starts (tip-off at 7:30 p.m.), and you must stay for the whole game. The Heat hosts the Philadelphia 76ers, and you can watch the game at Whiskey Tango (1903 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood). Visit
