5 Monkeys 

A buffet of "bar-tivities"

On the game show Legends of the Hidden Temple, kids always struggled with that ridiculously complicated three-piece monkey puzzle. For my generation, it was the bane of our existence. But now that we’re older, it seems like there’s no monkey-related puzzle we can’t solve—even after a few shots at the club. So, if you’ve never been to 5 Monkeys (7 E. 4800 South), don’t let the name fool you, this Murray club is no brain-buster. If anything, it’s a buffet of “bar-tivities.” There’s free pool seven days a week, karaoke every hump day, and Fridays and Saturdays are typically reserved for live music and DJs. Personally, I’m a big fan of Thursday nights, which means free wings courtesy of Rob Sauce; and while you’re there, take advantage of the $3 wells or the signature $4 Monkey Piss lager.

Like every decent sauce pusher, he offers free samples.
