God, we’re sick of martinis. September was a martini month. Maybe it was an instinctive reaction to the credit crisis; maybe some eternally blotto neuron in our brains forced us to drain our checking accounts while the draining was good, and re-invest the loot in high-powered gin so we wouldn’t have to think about it anymore. Well, that’s done with. Now is the time for unpretentious drinking, which is why we’re going to The Field Irish Bar & Pub in Dania to catch a really good Beatles cover band on Tuesday night. The band is called 2 of Us (there are two of them), and they start at 7 p.m. Unfortunately, this is precisely when The Field’s happy hour ends. Strategy: arrive immediately after work, drink constantly for two hours, and then switch to water when the band starts. Dance drunkenly. Go home when sober.
