Hey, you. Yeah, you, the unemployed guy sitting on your couch surfing the Internets for a job. I would change those boxers, man. Shortly after doing that, I would head to epynomous sports pub Beef 'O' Brady's for what the Sun-Sentinel's John Tanasychuk says is a sure thing. No, not a job! A free meal.

According to Sup, the Beefs (Sunrise location only, at 10079 W. Oakland Park Blvd.) is feeling empathetic towards all you recently laid off people -- probably because they know you won't be spending your formerly hard-earned money with them anymore. All you have to do is bring in your pink slip. No friggin' joke: your PINK SLIP

Goddamn, Beefs. That's just cruel. It's gotta be like salt in the wounds to carry your termination letter around with you just to get a free bite. I mean, that's a step up from waving that thing around on the street corner, screaming "this could be you!" at passersby. And what if you didn't get a letter? Should you go back to your former place of employ and beg your boss for one, a la the kid who seeks a doctor's note to play hooky from school?

On the other hand, a free meal is a free meal. And, coincidentally, Beef's is hiring, at least according to it's homepage. Shoot, that's one stop shopping!

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.
