Monday Night Improv Jam

Join Anthony Francis, Tony Rivera, and other members of the Sick Puppies Comedy improv troupe at Hurricane Grill & Wings as they show you the basics of Improv 101. Because who doesn't like their wings with a side of improvisational comedy? What's more if while imbibing and gorging on flocks of wings, you will have the opportunity to get on stage yourself as this improv is open mic and educational. Rather than a "come on stage and tell your jokes" type set, participants will have the opportunity to join in improv games. Think "Who's Line Is It Anyway?" except the answer is, "You. It's your line. quick, say something funny." Or just hide behind your pile of discarded wings and enjoy the comedy.

Mantastic Wednesdays

Ladies are always the ones who get to party (and get drunk) for free. So what's a guy to do when he wants to hang with the boys, watch football, and crush empty beer cans with his forehead? Drink all the booze he wants for $5 at the Speakeasy Lounge's Mantastic Wednesdays while enjoying dude flicks. There's also all-you-can-drink wells from 8 to 11 p.m. -- By Laurie Charles

She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
