If you like piña coladas, then you’ll love the live performances tonight at Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, 1111 N. Ocean Dr. You’ll hear much more than Jimmy Buffett’s biggest hits at the 5 O’Clock Somewhere and LandShark Bars and Grills and nearby Hollywood Beach Bandshell. Can you think of a more relaxing way to kick off the holiday weekend? Info at MargaritavilleHollywoodBeachResort.com.

Beat the summer heat with some cool comedy at your local cineplex. The surprise hit of the summer is “Crazy Rich Asians,” the big screen adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s novel, starring Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh. Hunky Henry Cavill (“Superman,” “The Tudors”) is hanging on in theaters in the latest “Mission: Impossible” sequel. History buffs will enjoy “Operation Finale” opening this weekend and we’re just not sure who is buying tickets to Melissa McCarthy’s puppet whodunnit, “The Happytime Murders.” Check local listings for thaters and show times.

Isn’t it ironic that on Labor Day, the holiday dedicated the workers who keep our economy chugging along, that so many of our friends will be working today?

The many gay bars and clubs along the drive will welcome you with happy hour drink specials, special entertainment and much more.
