Buddha Gets Funky in Boca

If entertainment is your religion, you gotta love Boca’s new Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery (2621 N. Federal Hwy., 561/350-9818), getting ready to throw its grand opening bash this coming Saturday.

Funky Buddha is the creation of a pair of local guys, Jim Bast and Ryan Sentz, who found out after college that “work is not fun” and decided to do something about it by opening a place that would put the “fun” in “funky.”

To that end they built their own palace of good times, featuring more than 100 craft beers from around the world, “gourmet bar food,” a stage for live music and comedy acts, and a passel of hookahs for puffing on 40-plus types of shisa, a flavored tobacco whose history goes back some 500 years. Oh, and there’s a brewery too, cranking out their own brand of funky artisan suds.

Can I get an “Ommm”?
