Tuesdays and Thursdays

Head out to Biff Burger at 3939 49th St. N in St Petersburg for a blind-draw tournament. Happy Hour is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with ladies getting drinks for $1.50 from 7 p.m. to close on Tuesdays. It cost $5 to play but the prize money, collected from the entry fees of every player, will be split among the top three finishers. Game starts at 7 p.m. but show up early to practice a bit and intimidate your competition.

Wednesday

Ladies drink free from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Frenchy's Tiki Pavilion at Bright House Field, 601 Old Coachman Road N in Clearwater. This unique outdoor happy-hour experience inside the home of the Clearwater Threshers also offers live music and free food while supplies last. The games begin at 7 p.m. with a blind draw for partners and a $5 per player fee. This tournament also pays out cash prizes based on the number of teams entered.

Friday

If Pinellas seems too far away, there's always Uncle Mike's Smokehouse Grill at 9847 E Adamo Drive in Tampa. The Friday night game is a favorite among the pros and is also a $5 buy and blind-draw competition with $10 buckets of beer.

Looking for something more competitive?

Check out Tampa Bay Club Sport's Summer Sling on June 8 at Gulfport City Beach. It's $40 to play, but the tourney will feature live DJs and live scoring display via LCD monitors. Winners stand to rake in more than $400, with cash prizes for the top eight teams. Losers can still compete for a bar tab. This tourney on the sand will also have beer vendors.
