We would never want to blunder into #toosoon territory, so we say this with all respect to those who are still in deep mourning: Are we ready to have fun again? Orlando Weekly partners with Hamburger Mary's to present a break in the sadness and a cathartic chance to stand up and remember who we are in Orlando: to dance, laugh, have a drink and sing your heart out with some of the best performers to stalk the stages of Parliament House, Pulse, Hamburger Mary's and elsewhere.

Ginger Minj, Carol Lee, Jeff Jones, Leigh Shannon, Doug Bowser and many more will entertain, and a $30 ticket buys all the ice-cold beer and cocktails you can drink. (There are also $15 tickets available for designated drivers and attendees between 18 and 20 years old.) Everyone involved – and there are too many fabulous sponsors to list here – is donating their time, property and products, so 100 percent of the proceeds will support Pulse employees and the OneOrlando Fund. We may be wounded, but Orlando is not broken.

3-6 p.m. Sunday, July 2 | Cheyenne Saloon, 120 W. Church St. | 407-377-0400 | orlandoweeklytickets.com | $15-$30
