Monday Night Club: Mondays at National Mechanics are a bit of a whirlwind. Arrive early to see what can only be called a talent show on steroids. Musicians, comedians, thespians, magicians, and whomever else you can think of will perform, battle it out, and be judged mercilessly by the audience. 9 p.m.- 2 a.m.
Open Stage: Yet another way to show off your hidden talents is at the World Cafe Live 'Philly Rising Open Stage,' where aspiring musicians can compete for totally useful prizes, like discounted studio time at Range Recording Studios and a one-hour business consultaion with the CEO of Mad Dragon Records. Sign-Ups: 6:30 p.m.; Performances: 7 p.m.
For the Love of Rum: Tonight, head to one of our favorite brown-liquor purveyors, the Rum Bar, to get all draft beers half-price. Pay only $3 for well drinks and half-price for the best mojitos you will ever have. 11 a.m.- 2 a.m.
Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck every afternoon by peeping Play's Dance Card.
