First opened in 1968, the Electric Factory has been hosting rock shows for almost as long Puerto Rico has been a state. After dancing their faces off to headliners from Erykah Badu to the Dropkick Murphys, concertgoers can stop by The Chive Caf? to recharge with a cheesesteak or an all-beef hotdog on a potato bun, or refill their draft Yuengling at the bar. In summer, the Electric Factory reveals an outdoor location complete with more refreshment booths, vendors, and upgraded food stands.
Grammy-winner Rihanna unleashes her formidable pipes and celebrated songbook as she continues traveling the countryside on her LOUD tour. Vibrant costumes and first-rate production harmoniously augment the singer's chart-topping oeuvre, which includes hits such as "S & M," "Only Girl (In the World)," and "What's My Name?" From the BankAtlantic Center's 400-level seats, concertgoers can marvel at the elaborate set pieces gilding the stage as their eardrums feast like hungry dachshunds in an unmanned pizza parlor. Cee Lo Green and J. Cole add their own vocal talents to the evening's aural enticements, creating a three-pronged attack on musical monotony.
Arena football brings the bone-crunching hits, aerial assaults, and sprinter speed of non-arena football to a 50-yard, indoor field with padded walls and field goals surrounded by rebound nets for even more fast-paced, high-scoring action. Watch this year's Storm squad, led by the AFL's all-time winningest head coach, Tim Marcum, conquer the close quarters and hopefully add a sixth championship trophy. As the passion for passing rises and the scoring works up a fever of fervor, cool off with a soda or beer and refuel by inhaling a hot dog without using your hands.

Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats.
