Papa, meet Mama

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

you can bring your own.

Opened on Dec. 29, TopGolf is a pop­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment venue, and while you can/ should make reser­va­tions at TopGolf.com, they do take walk-ins (week­days are best). It’s open rain or shine.

Glick has seen peo­ple play­ing in flip-flops, oth­ers in high heels.

“We are su­per re­laxed. We want to make TopGolf af­ford­able and ac­ces­si­ble for ev­ery­one,” she says. “You can come in here right af­ter go­ing to the beach, af­ter a din­ner party. You can come in here when­ever you want, in what­ever you want.”

TopGolf of­fers weekly camps for kids through­out the sum­mer ($199, 9 a.m.-noon, lunch in­cluded) and lessons for older golfers with PGA-cer­ti­fied in­struc­tors.

Fa­ther’s Day week­end is the busiest time of year at TopGolf, thanks to a spe­cial rate that in­cludes two hours of play for six guests and VIP check-in for $75-$140, but bays are sell­ing out at TopGolf.com/ Father­sDay. An­other op­tion is a TopGolf gift card, which gets you a $10 bonus when you buy $50.

Re­lief for those un­able to make reser­va­tions is on the way in the form of TopGolf in Do­ral, which Glick says will open this sum­mer.

The over un­der

Dads aren’t look­ing for crazy pay­back this week­end. I don’t ask for much. All I want for Fa­ther’s Day is a Seabreacher, the semi-sub­mersible wa­ter­craft cus­tom-built to look like a shark and rip over (and un­der) the wa­ter at 60 mph. Boca Ra­ton- based Water­life Ven­tures is of­fer­ing rentals (start­ing at $105 for 15 min­utes) at WaterLifeVen­tures.com, and you can look them over (they also come in dol­phin and killer whale) at a dis­play that is part of the free Fa­ther’s Day-themed Mizner Park Down­town Drive Car Show from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday at Mizner Park, a ben­e­fit for Make-A-Wish South­ern Florida. Visit Mizn­erPark.com.

Week­end movie

Screen­ing at 7 p.m. Saturday at ArtServe in Fort Laud­erdale is “Van­ish­ing Sail,” a 2015 doc­u­men­tary about the last wooden sail­boat builder on the is­land of Car­ri­a­cou, in the West Indies, who de­cides to craft one last sail­ing sloop to teach his sons a van­ish­ing trade. Wooden Boat mag­a­zine calls it “a fas­ci­nat­ing story of per­sonal per­se­ver­ance, rib­ald tales of smug­gling at sea and the com­ple­tion of the beau­ti­ful wooden sloop in a race against time to en­ter the thrilling An­tigua Clas­sic Yacht Re­gatta.” Tick­ets cost $15. Visit ArtServe.org.

Free ‘Black Pan­ther’

The cul­tural phe­nom­e­non that is “Black Pan­ther” res­onated with a record-set­ting au­di­ence for many rea­sons, in­clud­ing the age-old story of two pro­tag­o­nists strug­gling with the lega­cies of their fa­thers. I’ve seen it twice and could eas­ily sit through it again when it screens for free at 8 p.m. Fri­day dur­ing Sum­mer Movie Night on the XFIN­ITY East Plaza at Amer­i­canAir­lines Arena in Mi­ami. Chairs and blan­kets are en­cour­aged, there will be food and bev­er­ages for pur­chase and free pop­corn 7-7:30 p.m. and park­ing is free in the P2 Garage. Space is lim­ited. RSVP: AAAarena.com/ events.

The new down­town Mi­ami lounge Mama Tried, shares its name, of course, with the Merle Hag­gard clas­sic. Other rea­sons for op­ti­mistic cu­rios­ity: They plan to play coun­try mu­sic on Thursday nights (what?!); it’s a part­ner­ship of guys who cre­ated some of your other fa­vorite places, Dan Binkiewicz (Purdy Lounge, Sweet Lib­erty, Black­bird Or­di­nary), Mauri­cio La­cayo (The Bend Liquor Lounge) and Domingo Murillo (Side­bar Mi­ami); and an­other part­ner is Nathaniel San­dler, co-founder and head li­brar­ian of the non­profit Book­leg­gers Mo­bile Li­brary, who has placed a col­lec­tion of books provoca­tively among the TVs, juke­box, pool table and (au­then­tic) Pac-Mangame. This is where you want to use your Fa­ther’s Day hall pass this week­end. Visit Ma­maTriedMIA.com.

Pa­ter­nal laughs

Ja­son Mewes, the pro­fane, sex­ist punk half of Jay and Silent Bob, the duo in­tro­duced in Kevin Smith’s sem­i­nal 1994 in­die film “Clerks,” is now the fa­ther of a 3-year-old daugh­ter. Pay­back will be a mother. Cur­rently the co-host, with Smith, of the long-run­ning pod­cast “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old,” Mewes per­forms at 10 p.m. Fri­day at the Palm Beach Im­prov. Tick­ets cost $22, $45 VIP. Brack­et­ing that show will be per­for­mances by comic-im­pres­sion­ist Frank Caliendo at 7:30 p.m. Fri­day, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Caliendo tick­ets cost $30-$35.
