No time for down time this week­end

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Crandell

These are the week­ends that try men’s souls. Some (my wife) say it can’t be done. But it can.

SunFest is in full swing, of course, and one of the acts on my must-see list will ap­pear to­day, when Wil­lie Nel­son’s son brings Lukas Nel­son and Prom­ise of the Real to down­town West Palm Beach 7:15-8:30 p.m. (SunFest.com). Later, if I must let my in­ner Chew­bacca out for a May the Fourth Be With You event, and I may, the Uber will be di­rected to Churchill’s Pub in Mi­ami for a Ska Wars party fea­tur­ing Jacuzzi Fuzz, Spred the Dub and, of course, a cos­tume con­test (Churchill­sPub.com).

I can’t get too Wookie with it, be­cause Satur­day is a big day, with the Fort Laud­erdale Air Show, more SunFest, the Ken­tucky Derby and that Cinco de Mayo thing. Time is tight, so my plan is to track the planes mak­ing their artful turns through and over down­town at Rooftop dur­ing the lounge’s Ken­tucky Derby 2:30-7:30 p.m. watch party. For $20, you get a Wood­ford Re­serve cock­tail, light bites and the sat­is­fac­tion of know­ing that a por­tion of the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit the Jes­sica June Chil­dren’s Can­cer Foun­da­tion (Face­book.com/Rooftop1WLO).

Af­ter an hour or so of that, I’ll head to SunFest to catch Ice Cube’s 4:45-6 p.m. Satur­day set, walk over to E.R. Bradley’s Saloon for the Ken­tucky Derby, brag about how I had money on Lone Sailor, then catch Rae Srem­murd back at SunFest at 9 p.m. (SunFest.com).

This will leave us per­fectly po­si­tioned to stroll up Clema­tis to Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar, where Rocco Man­gel will have his an­nual Cinco de May­oBlock Party un­til 2 a.m. Sim­i­lar par­ties en­sue at his places in Del­ray Beach, Boca Ra­ton and Fort Laud­erdale (Roc­cosTa­cos.com).

With an ef­fi­cient Uber, the night­cap will be the Cinco WuMayo show at Cash Only in Fort Laud­erdale, high­lighted by a late-night performance by the Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghost­face Kil­lah (Face­book.com/ CashOn­lyFTL).

If I can get up in time on Sun­day, the week­end feels like it would not be com­plete with­out Sub­lime With Rome, 2:30-4 p.m. at SunFest (SunFest.com). My 12-year-old daugh­ter also has ex­pressed in­ter­est in DNCE (the other Jonas) at 2:45 p.m. What’s a re­spon­si­ble fa­ther to do? Wait, what’s a re­spon­si­ble fa­ther? Tower. Hi, kids!
