It's Friday evening and you're itching to get out of the house, relax and unwind after a long week of work. Check out your local Union County nightlife hotspots for live musical acts and drink deals.
2. Colorado Cafe in Watchung. This western-themed bar is hosting cover band The Nerds, a cover band that loosely bases its stage presence off an old Saturday night live skit. The four members dress and act nerdy, while also playing a lot of R&B and funk music.
5. Open Mic Nights. Pick up an instrument and go strum in front of a microphone tonight at Azianne in Montclair. Signup starts at 6:30 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m. There is also another open mic with a $3 admission tonight at The Caberet Theatre in New Brunswick starting at 8 p.m.
