Five Things to Do This Weekend Under $10

5. B3BQ Bacon Beats BBQ

12 p.m., Sunday, at Harold's, 509 Northwood Rd., West Palm Beach. $5 cover. Visit Facebook.

What do bacon, art, and music have in common? All three will be intertwined in a beautiful ménage à trios of sorts this Sunday at Harold's in West Palm Beach. A mere 5 bones will provide you access to all the actual bones you can suck on. There will be barbecue and there will be bacon.

Alas, do not fear, veggie lovers, non-meat bacon will be available. Not hungry but still wanna slide on by? Your entry is free. Enjoy your time there with vendors, live art, and sounds by Konkrete Jungle South Florida, Audioplayground Entertainment, and Dub Recon. Add a side of faith to that grease with the SFLA Bacon Church. It will also be in attendance.

Add this to your calendar from here on out, because it's a reoccurring Sunday event.

4. Shotgun Betty

10 p.m., Friday, July 25, at Dada. 52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.

Shotgun Betty's got cool tats, hip clothes, and rootsy sounds. What more could you ask for on a steamy summer Friday night? The band is playing this evening at Delray's alternative hot spot, Dada. Bring your cronies for free and get ready to be presented with catchy tunes in a spirited performance you won't soon forget.

A trio of delightful bands will accompany indie surf outfit Rivers in the release of their first EP and debut show. If you catch yourself bitching that this is the most expensive party on our list, remember that besides getting a true taste of South Florida's eclectic talents, you'll go home with a copy of Rivers' EP in the mix. It's definitely worth the extra bucks. Couch surf for pennies if you have to, you cheap bastard.

And ladies, don't be offended if you hear a "ho, ho, ho" at your back. It's just Mr. Claus chuckling, not calling you out for sporting your cutest daisy dukes.
