Modern Diversions at SoFla’s Oldest Alt Club

A viral video party at Respectable Street (518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) will go something like this: You’ll drink a sharply discounted beer ($3), and you and your friends will watch a man on a screen mouth the words to “Dragostea din tei.” You will laugh. You will drink some sharply discounted liquor and watch a baby dance or bite his brother’s finger. You will laugh. You will enjoy a sharply discounted Monk in the Trunk beer (earthy taste, vaguely reminiscent of actual monks in an actual trunk) and watch two New Yorkers dressed as Santa’s elves lip-synch to “All I Want for Christmas Is You” while dancing awesomely. Once sufficiently sloshed, you will realize that you too deserve a viral video, and you will pass your camera phone off to some copartier and proceed to the porch for karaoke. It will end badly. But it’ll be fun. Admission’s free. Party starts at 9 p.m. and goes all night.
