5. Pet Rescue Benefit
If you like drinking and care about animals, this is your ideal Sunday Funday event. From 1 to 6 p.m., Maguire's is hosting a benefit to help local pet rescues. The event will feature a raffle, live music by Jimmy Stowe and the Stowaways, a 50/50 cash drawing, and -- obviously -- food and alcoholic beverages.
Maguire's Hill 16 is located at 535 N. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-764-4453, or visit

4. Fort Lauderdale Bar Crawl
Multitasking is an essential part of modern-day life. Who has time to work, take care of personal matters, socialize, exercise, and get drunk? While we cannot help you with all of the above, we can help you figure out a way to walk and get drunk. This Saturday at 6:30 p.m., the Fort Lauderdale Bar Crawl is starting off at Lucky's Tavern. For $20 in advance, $25 the day of, participants get to stumble around downtown getting a drink at each participating bar. At 11 p.m., the afterparty moves to America's Backyard with a free buffet -- to help soak up all the booze -- and a raffle.
Lucky's Tavern is located at 214 SW Second St. in Fort Lauderdale. Visit, or email
