BBQ w/ Escarioka & Friends

The Deal: $5 all you can drink
The Place: 12-26 Putnam Ave
The Price: $5
The Details: It's a nice day out and you should be out there in a yard getting shitfaced. Five bucks gets you all the damn booze you can stomach.

The Deal: BYOB
The Place: 907 Grand Street
The Price: FREE
The Details: This is a 24-hour nonstop BBQ and boozefest. It's all BYOB, which is one of our favorite acronyms. The last B in BYOB stands for both Beer and BBQ (another fine acronym). The marathon features DJ sets by Jonathan Toubin (New York Night Train), Teen Wolf (NinjaSonik), C Lo (Bikes In The Kitchen) and a bunch more. This will be legendary.

Official Girls After Party

The Deal: Vodka open bar 10-11PM
The Place: Tribeca Grand Hotel
The Price: FREE w/RSVP (link below)
The Details: The official after party for Girls. It's at a swanky joint and all the richsters (rich hipsters, get it?) are going to be there looking pretty and acting superior. Might be awesome, might be boring - it's hard to say.

Mondo Ding Dong

The Deal: $3 beer
The Place: The Ding Dong Lounge
The Price: FREE
The Details: You know how you don't have a job and girls your age think you're a fuck up? Yeah, well tonight if you're willing to trek uptown there's going to be a ton of good-looking Columbia undergrads that are actually impressed that your "post-noisecore-electro" band played Goodbye Blue Monday with A Place To Bury Strangers "before they sold out." The addition of cheap beer means you might just hook-up with some adorable Ivy Leaguer to support your lazy ass for a few years.

The Deal: $3 pints; $6 pint+whiskey combo
The Place: The Production Lounge
The Price: $5
The Details: Is there a better way to celebrate Jesus then going to a Satan worshipping metal party and drinking whiskey? I don't think so, buddy. Live performances by Thinning The Herd, Ashes Within (stupid name alert), and Slam One Down (boring name alert).

Newmore Switchblades Thursday

The Deal: Colt 45 open bar 9-10PM
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: $5

The Details: Not only will this be the funnest thing to do tonight it will also have the hottest girls. The Bushwick kids take over N. 6th tonight with DJ sets from Dirtyfinger (Black Label), Rev. Mcfly (Ninjasonik) and C.Lo (Bikes In The Kitchen). Live performances by Pyramid Scheme and Concussion.

Leisure Duty

The Deal: "Surprise Open Bar" 10-11PM; $3 PBR all nite; $5 beer+shot combo
The Place: Savalas
The Price: FREE
The Details: Aside from the constantly terrible music at Savalas it's actually been pretty hot lately due to their sudden goodwill towards boozers like myself. They've been doing all types of cheapo drink specials but this is the first open bar I recall seeing for awhile. The fact that it's a "surprise" and it's on April Fool's Day makes me a little nervous - "Surprise! Free NYC tap water and whatevers pooled up on the roof for all."

Rock The Disco

The Deal: Well open bar 10-11PM
The Place: Deity
The Price: $5 after midnight
The Details: I've never heard of this joint Deity, it's on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn and the dress code is "bright colors + sunglasses." There's huge potential here for major douchebaggery but it just might be awesome. Cosmo Baker from The Rub is the guest DJ for the night.

April Ghoul's Day

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 10-11PM; $3 PBRs all nite
The Place: The Delancey (downstairs)
The Price: $10; $7 w/ invite
The Details: Michael T and the gang are celebrating April Fool's Day and Easter, it kinda makes sense when you think about it (greatest prank ever pulled, amirite?). Your DJs for the night will be Michael T, Patrick (Salvation), Templar (Underworld), and Wren (Dances of Vice). Live performances from The Dossier and Revel Hotel - don't worry, I've never heard of them either.

Uncle Jack's Steakhouse

The Deal: Free martinis for the broads; free scotch, port, whiskey, & bourbon for the bros. 5-7PM
The Place: Uncle Jack's Steakhouse
The Price: FREE???
The Details: This is in midtown and at a steakhouse and most likely attended by a bunch of suits and cougars. But free fucking scotch is well worth dealing with all of the above. I have my doubts this is actually free but give it a shot and let us know how it goes.

Headz Will Roll

The Deal: Svedka open bar 10-12PM
The Place: La Pomme
The Price: FREE???
The Details: This is a Roxy Cottontail party which means it's kinda like a hipster party but further uptown and with more expensive drinks and collar shirts. There are 20 names on the flyer - like Lady Fag and Alexander Technique - but the star of the party is the 2 hour Svedka open bar.

Alice by Temperley Launch

The Deal: Free wine and food 6-9PM
The Place: Temperley London The Price: FREE w/ RSVP jessicac@temperleylondon.com
The Details: Some fancy pants fashion shit with free wine and food. Again, I wouldn't normally list this but it's early (pre-game) and today is a bit slow. Knock yourself out.

Cocktail Education

The Deal: Free Appleton rum tasting 7:30-9PM
The Place: 67 Orange Street
The Price: FREE
The Details: I would normally never list a tasting because you generally get damn near no booze. But it's a slow night and if you're desperate at least it's something...way the fuck up in Harlem...but something I guess.

Darker Side Of Green

The Deal: Open bar 9:30 - 1AM  ***Update: Word on the street is it's a Patron open bar
The Place: 463 10th Ave.
The Price: FREE w/RSVP on Facebook or email listlistlist@gmail.com
The Details: You are most definitely not cool enough for this party and neither am I. Fortunately, somebody posted it as a public event on Facebook for all to see! The holy grail of boozing - a true open bar for 3+ hours - is going down here tonight. All the cool kids are going to be there like The MisShapes, Paul Sevigny, Merlin Bronques, James Coppola, and YOU...of course. Show up, stuff your face on hors d'oeuvres, get retarded drunk and maybe even bang a model - if you can get it up at that point.

Turn Up The Bass

The Deal: 2-4-1 wells til midnight; $3 Bud and Bud Light 10-12
The Place: Sin Sin
The Price: FREE
The Details: If you buy fancy headphones just for the extra bass boom then you'll dig this party. Unit.One, Broken Teeth, and crew bring you Ripley from Oakland. They also are rotting your liver with cheap drinks, at least until midnight. After that you're on your own (::cough::FLASK::cough::).

Tuesday Night Disco

The Deal: Absinthe open bar 9-10PM
The Place: Glasslands
The Price: $7
The Details: Last week these guys tried to cut the open bar down to half an hour. This week it's back to a full hour, so I guess we know how that experiment worked out. Either way this party appears to be the hot shit right now so go check it out and dance with the green ferry.

Shitfaced Monday

The Deal: 2-4-1 Carbombs all night
The Place: Iggy's
The Price: FREE
The Details: Dive bars need to go the extra mile to get your ass through the door on a wet Monday. Iggy's delivers big with a 2-4-1 deal on Car Bombs. You will be destroyed and useless for tomorrow if you go to this. Safe journey young booze hound.

Small Beast #61

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks all night
The Place: The Delancey
The Price: FREE
The Details: I don't know jack shit about this event. My guess is it's a bunch of weirdo music in the basement of The Delancey but I'm not sure. They claim to have 2-4-1 drinks all night but I have my doubts. Proceed with caution.

Williamsburg Spelling Bee

The Deal: Free booze if you can spell
The Place: Pete's Candy Store
The Price: FREE
The Details: The only way to score free booze at this thing is to out spell a bunch of Williamsburg nerds with Masters degrees in English. So what I'm saying is you should probably just buy a 40oz of OE and play Grand Theft Auto with your dumb-fuck friends.

Local X Local

The Deal: $3 Brooklyn Lager 7-9PM w/RSVP
The Place: Brooklyn Bowl
The Price: FREE
The Details: Sundays during the Winter usually start and end with Brunch but tonight we've got a pretty excellent event at Brooklyn Bowl. Vivian Girls and German Measles are playing live and there's going to be a ton of other shit like live screen printing, Mast Brothers Chocolate, Blue Bottle Coffee, and fish tacos. The best part is it's all free.

Customer Appreciation Party

The Deal: $3 shots; "cheap" beer
The Place: Alligator Lounge
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Alligator Lounge is the place you end up when friends are in town and want to check out the place "with the free pizza." You humor them and have a beer but try and drag their asses out as soon as they finish their pizza. But tonight is a little different because they're dishing out $3 shots and "cheap" beer in addition to the pies.

The Details: It's Sunday and you want to get drunk because you're a degenerate and probably don't have a job. Go get 'em tiger.
