Jacksonville Icemen vs Florida Everblades
There's hockey in Jacksonville now. This is cool (no pun intended). My reasons for wanting to see the Jax Icemen play are 10% to find out wth hockey is and 90% to appreciate how fiiiine the players are. They go up against the Florida Everblades (gawd I love hockey puns) at the Veterans Memorial Arena at 7:30 p.m. And it's super hero night! So wear a cape and buy your tickets here.
5th Annual Jax Illuminations
If you literally have no clue what Jax Illuminations is, watch the video above or I can't talk to you.
You HAVE to go. This is Jacksonville's Best Drive Thru Holiday Light Show. Pile all your friends into someone's SUV, split the $20 it costs per car, and load up on free hot chocolate before you head in. Then cruise through more than half a million lights that dance and twinkle to your favorite Christmas songs. If you really freaking love it, you can see it every night through New Years Eve.

LPT @ Fly's Tie
Okay, this one might be a little out of the box for you but hear me out.
I'm Hispanic and have constantly wished for a dope live salsa night in Jax. Then one day, my gringo friend (that's a Spanish term of endearment for "white dude") told me about this salsa band playing at raindogs in Five Points. It was LPT and OMG they're a party. The place was packed! Gringos and Latinos dancing salsa or shimmying awkwardly!
So branch out and go see them tonight at Fly's Tie in Atlantic Beach. These guys are proud to share their Afro-Cuban roots with everyone.
