Spice up Your Weekday Vibes: Your Guide to Tally Entertainment

By Erica Gleeman on February 1, 2017


Many students should be accustomed to a weekly routine with school and work by this time in the semester. Unfortunately, with such demanding schedules, it is not hard getting sucked into staying at home, hanging out on the couch, and watching Netflix most nights. Being unproductive is much easier than one would like to think. Most students are known to relax by letting off some steam at the gym, or by taking a night out on the town drinking.

Stepping closer to the month of February, why not integrate some change into your routine? Spice up your tally weekday vibes and gain some knowledge, instead of taking it easy. Knowledge is power after all.

Here are some evening activities for the weekdays that Tallahassee can offer you to be a part of the community out of the house and creatively unwind. Check out the hand-selected list below for the different days of the week.

Monday – Patio Theatre – Waterworks

The Tiki Time Machine, otherwise known as Waterworks, is Tallahassee’s lone tiki bar and American restaurant. Influenced by the Fort Lauderdale Polynesian fire show, Mai-Kai, the restaurant has been up and running for almost 25 years. The staff is friendly, which is no wonder the customers are primarily regulars.

Waterworks hosts events most nights, but on all Mondays there are old, classic flicks shown. The cinema classics are screened beneath the stars when weather permits for outdoor weather or in the cozy indoors. Check out their Facebook page to stay up to date. If you head over early you can grab dinner. Happy hour is also from 4 to 7 p.m. for a dollar off cocktails. Mystery drinks are recommended, and most fruity cocktails have little umbrellas for the tropical aesthetic appeal.

• Time: 8 p.m.

Tuesday – Trivia – The Brass Tap – Midtown Tallahassee

The Brass Tap is an upscale beer bar, with multiple locations, specializing in craft beers. This beer garden serves wine and cocktails as well. Live music is often played here.
