Sundays at Good Times at Davey Wayne’s

Keywords: Snow cone benders, Regal Beagle, “two Choco Tacos, please”

The Argyle Tuesdays at the Argyle

The Scene(s): Downstairs is a kicked-back den with ’80s and ’90s rock. Upstairs is more like circusy performers, surprise Tyga shows and servers riding fake pigs drenching themselves in bubbly. Aka open format.

Throwback Thursday at Genesis

The Scene: Jeremy Fall hosts this Thursday tribute to all things ’90s in his snug attic club over Sassafras. Dance to pop, hip-hop and rock by rotating DJs, grab a black-lit neon drink and get your photo taken on an old disposable camera. Ah, the ’90s.
