Don't let the working week get you down, Phoenix. There's plenty to do during your off-hours this week. Here are our top five recommendations.

Beers with Friends Scrabble Party @ Handlebar
Real talk. We play what probably would be classified as an excessive amount of Words with Friends. We love those triple word squares, picking up a "Q," and toiling to come up with killer plays. But, the Scrabble knockoff app doesn't live up to the real deal and often leaves us craving physical letter tiles and keeping manual score.

To satisfy such a hankering, the cure resides at Tempe establishment Handlebar, which hosts the weekly Beers with Friends Scrabble Party. The booze-fueled tourney pits against each other teams of four and rewards gift cards, beers, and French fries for making special plays and winning.

Get your (word) game on Mondays at 7 p.m. There's no cover. Call 480-967-5244. -- Becky Bartkowski
