Keep New Times Free

Five Things to Do Under $5 This Weekend in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

5. Hurly Burly Presents Hairy Potter

8 p.m., Friday, May 31, at Speakeasy Lounge, 129 N. Federal Highway, Lake Worth. Call 561-540-6328. Entrance is $5.

You may be fan of Harry Potter, but have you ever even heard of Hairy Potter? If this pervy name piques your interest, swing by Speakeasy Lounge for some Hurly Burly action tonight. We're talking furry man chest burlesque in nerd magician costume. This isn't your good ol' clean Harry with a magic wand, but rather dirty grown mens with some wands of their own.

4. Funky Buddha Brewery Grand Opening Celebration

4 p.m., Saturday, June 1, at Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery, 1201 NE 38 St., Oakland Park.

Oakland Park embraces South Florida's largest capacity craft brewery along with live music, food trucks, and of course, some suds. If this isn't enough to get your beer gut tingling, corn hole, timed tapping, and other distractions should keep you busy till midnight, a.k.a. when the party ends. Each beer costs one $5 ticket, so you can get quality drunk on the cheap.

3. Art Show: Laura Seaman

6 p.m., Saturday, June 1, at Coastars Coffee Bar, 12 S. J. Street, Lake Worth. Call 561-533-0353; Free event.

So much art is so bad. Especially art being shown at a coffee shop. That's why we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the dreamy, colorful scapes of artist Laura Seaman. Catch work that doesn't blow, but actually inspires at Coastars Coffee Bar this Saturday.

2. Beach Day Trip Trap Attack Listening Party

7 p.m., Saturday, June 1, at Radio-Active Records, 845 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-762-9488; Free event.

Let's tell y'all the good news about this event. Are you sitting down? There's free beer, vegan cupcakes, cookies and a free listening party with local hotties that rock Beach Day. Of course, the date you're bringing doesn't have to know that everything is free. Let them think you're cool and generous.

1. Isle Casino Presents Saturday Nite Alive

Every Saturday, starting June 1 to August 3, 7 p.m., A1A sidewalks from Bubba Gump to the Ritz Carlton, S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. to N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. Free events.

Fort Laudy on a Saturday night is always poppin, but with Saturday Nite Alive, there is yet another good opportunity to get on the town. With 20 sidewalk vendors and 20 live entertainers, you are bound to be amused in one way or another. First of all, there's a ton of stuff happening, and if you're so boring you can't find something you like here, then at least it was free.
