Remember The Gong Show? Talentless hacks interrupted in mid-performance by a huge, cruel gong, signaling to the whole world the imminent and permanent separation of the hapless artists from the airwaves (and from their egos)? The concept is back at Dada’s (52 N. Swinton Ave), every Monday night at 9:30.

Dada has always been a good place to risk bad art: if you don’t like what’s happening on “stage” (really a little patch of bare floor in what used to be a living room), you can wander outside to sip your martini under an umbrella in the font yard, or spoon ice cream with fresh fruit on a couch on the porch, or stroll around to the garden off to the side of the building where the real drinking happens (Dada has a three page martini menu — we suggest the Nuts ’n’ Berries, which actually tastes like nuts ’n’ berries). The food’s good, too. Call 561-330-3232 for more info.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
