If you’ve ever considered that your binge drinking is problematic, come out this Saturday to make yourself feel a little better about it. The local chapter of the non-profit organization, Room to Read, is hosting their first annual BEERS for BOOKS party this Saturday August 14th at the (self-proclaimed ‘World Famous’) Parrot Lounge on Fort Lauderdale beach. If you’ve ever found yourself stumbling around on the north end of the beach, chances are you have been to this Philadelphia Eagles-themed dive bar. All drunk jokes aside, the event will raise money to support Room to Read in their effort to fund youth education in Asia and Africa. The average cost for the organization to send a child to school for one year is $250 and by patrons sparing a small admission fee, you are helping Room to Read reach that goal. Admission to BEERS for BOOKS is $12, which includes one drink and access to the free buffet. Similarly, you can choose to donate a book, and your ticket will cost you only $10. The organization will also be raffling off tickets to an upcoming Toby Keith concert (if you are unfortunate enough to be into that sort of music). Venture down to the Parrot Lounge this Saturday to show your support for Room to Read and put your night, what otherwise might have been a sloppy Saturday night, to a good cause.
