5. Flaunt Presents the Riot Act
11 p.m., Thursday, January 15, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. No cover. 21 and up. Visit Facebook.

This event got our stamp of approval in our Best Of edition when it placed for “Best Nightlife Party” in 2012. All the praise Flaunt received then stands today. To add to the dancing, rocking duo Riot Act will be performing live along with Marvelous Kendall, OZwaldus, JJ Contramus, and Danxiety. And for those in need of a social lube, PBRs are $2 ($1 before 11 p.m.) and Flaunt shots are $3. Now do you see why we like this party?

Five Things to Do Under $5 This Weekend

5. Ladies’ Night at Pawn Shop
9 p.m., Friday, January 9, at Pawn Shop. 219 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. VisitFacebook.
Ladies, enjoy the benefits of having two X chromosomes tonight on Clematis with its ladies’ night. And, since Pawn Shop doesn’t play, it’s actually providing complimentary bevs for guys too, until midnight (ladies get free drinks until 1 a.m.). It’ll be nice to say hello to 2015 again, and again, the right way: all toasty and with free drinks to toast.

Stranahan House Hosts Holiday Hangover Event With Sosos Singer and Beer Garden

Fort Lauderdale’s oldest, still-standing structure, Stranahan House, will host its first event of the year today from 6 to 9 p.m., appropriately titled “Holiday Hangover.” It’s clearly geared at all those still recovering from seasonal festivities; there will be an open bar, music, a beer garden sponsored by Moore Stephens Lovelace PA, food of all sorts, and even a CycleParty onsite for guests to experience. Attendees can also, of course, tour the museum.

Five Things to Do Under $5 This Weekend

5. B/W Affair: Rabidoux, Brauser, and Keller
Rolando Chang Barrero Fine Art Gallery, 711 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth. No cover. VisitFacebook.
Still fiending for some local art after Basel? The Rolando Chang Barrero Fine Art Gallery’s got your back, and closer to home. The new art space is currently exhibiting work by Palm Beach abstract painter James Rabidoux as well as window installations by German self-coined “cultural instigator” Uta Brauser.

The cool part of Rabidoux’s work? There are hidden words in the obscure designs. The exhibition will be up until January 15 and will also continue to be the affordable price of free.

Dive into 2015 at New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge at Fort Lauderdale Beach

A very chilly tradition will be making its stop at a not so chilly place at 10:30 a.m. this New Year’s Day, 2015. For those who wanna take a wintertime dip in unusually warmer waters than is typical for an event like this, Beauty and the Feast Bar|Kitchen, located in the Atlantic Hotel and Spa, is hosting a Polar Bear Plunge. For those unaware, this is an annual ritual that involves running into the freezing cold, winter waters of the ocean.
