The Deal: $3 Magic Hat; $6 Rolling Rock+shot combo; $6 Tecate+shot combo
The Place: The Cove
The Price: FREE
The Details: Dance party with Prince Terrence of Hussle Club and DJ FullTimeFun. I'm not a big fan of The Cove but at least the DJs are good.

Roof Party

The Deal: $2 beer & $2 shots; BYOB
The Place: 210 Cook St.
The Price: FREE
The Details: It's a shitty day for a roof party but I hope that doesn't stop you from celebrating Spring with Willie Mays, Radical Sons, Road Sodas, Nobody Can Dance and Baader Meinhoff Complex. The bands start at 8PM and if you're too cheap to pay $2 for a drink you can also BYOB! Oh and if you're over 26 everyone is going to think you're a NARC, trust me.

KnifeFight: Ths Last Bummer Before Summer

The Deal: Colt 45 Open Bar 10-11PM???
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: $5
The Details: KnifeFight parties are always a good time. MKING FRNDZ is playing live with DJs Shams, Semen Sperms and more. The official page for this says nothing of an open bar but MyOpenBar is telling us free Colt 45, which sounds about right for Public Assembly. So I'm listing it but proceed with caution.

All That: Mega 90s Dance Party

The Deal: "90 free beers at midnight"
The Place: coco 66
The Price: FREE
The Details: Another god damn 90's party? It's so fucking depressing that there's ten 90's parties every night. Of course all are throw by 20 year olds who don't know what the fuck they're talking about. Sorry, ignore my old man rant (goddamn punk kids!). The fine print says free beer but don't take my word for it. Either way I believe coco66 has several $3 brews so you're covered. There's also free "90's candy" like Fruit By The Foot and Dunkaroos...really people?

What's Crackin'

The Deal: $3 PBR; $5 PBR+shot
The Place: Savalas
The Price: FREE
The Details: Three good DJs playing terrible 90's RnB and dance music. I'm still trying to figure out if this is an honest tribute to that crap or a goof. I mean do people really want to hear C&C Music Factory and "Whoop, There It Is" all night because they think it's good? Ugh. Spoof or not there's no doubt that the booze is cheap and the girls are numerous and hot...wait, chicks love terrible music - I get it now!

Breathalyzer Score: .10 (only because the music might kill your buzz)


The Deal: Sobieski Open Bar 11-Gone; $3 PBR
The Place: Europa
The Price: $15 under 21+; FREE w/RSVP b4 12AM rsvp@germsnyc.com
The Details: I've been listing GERMS damn near every week but I almost cut it off this week because of a new admission policy. Normally there's no way I'd list a $15 cover party but since it seems like there's still a free way in I kept it up. Just make sure you don't show up after midnight.

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 3-4AM; $3 PBR
The Place: The Studio
The Price: $5 w/RSVP: trash@djjessnyc.com
The Details: Hang out at Webster Hall on a weekend without spending an entire weeks paycheck. Trash is still going strong after all these years. If you haven't been to Trash yet then you're missing out on one of the all-time legendary weirdo parties. Go get 'em.

Heavy Metal Happy Hour: Peter Steele Tribute

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 6-9PM

International Playground Grand Opening

The Deal: Free Stoli
The Place: International Playground
The Price: FREE, must RSVP: rsvp@theblockmagazine.com
The Details: I don't know what the fuck this International Playground is but I do know that they know how to throw a party. Michael T, Ben Brunnemer and Zam are you're DJs. In addition to free vodka they've also got free shirts and other goodies to pass out.

Cerebral Ballzy Record Release Show

The Deal: Colt 45 Open Bar 9PM
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: $5
The Details: The raddest band in Brooklyn just released their first album and are celebrating with a show tonight at Public Assembly. If you haven't seen Ballzy before they're some kind of perfect stew of Suicidal Tendencies, DRI and Bad Brains. Which means the combination of free malt liquor and fast Brooklyn skate punk is deadly.

Salvor Installation Party

The Deal: Open Bar 7-9
The Place: Oak Bond St.
The Price: FREE
The Details: Some kind of art opening party. Salvor Project's Ross Menuez created a special installation. You're just coming for the free booze though, huh?

Mating Season II Featuring Jane Bang

The Deal: $1 tequila shots & $2 drafts 10-11PM; $1 Swine Flu shots & $3 beer 2-3AM
The Place: Gallery Bar
The Price: Free if you wear an animal mask, $2 otherwise
The Details: So basically this party revolves around a bunch of half naked girls prancing around in animal masks. It sounds good on paper but in practice this could spell trouble. Trouble, in this case, being a bunch of college "bros" showing up. As long as the penis/vagina ratio doesn't get to cocky then this should be a fun party.

Bushwick Supply Opening Party

The Deal: Free PBR
The Place: Bushwick Supply
The Price: FREE
The Details: The dudes from Main Drag Music are opening a store or studio or something in the Williamsburg Industrial Park (free cancer!). The best DJ in town, Jonathan Toubin, is spinning the rock, roll and soul. There will be free PBR and "wicked raffle action." But the best part will be the "bro-hugging and high fives" for sure.

Breathalyzer Score: .16


The Deal: $3 PBR; $5 PBR+whiskey combo; $6 Tecate/Bud+tequila/Jameson combo; Jameson Open Bar 9-11?
The Place: Savalas
The Price: FREE
The Details: The music will be 80's jams like Joy Division, New Order, The Cure and other mopey dance music. The booze will be cheap and possibly free. The Facebook invite says nothing of free booze but according to MyOpenBar there will be a 2-hour Jameson open bar. Well, if that turns out to be false at least there's cheap shit.

Breathalyzer Score: .14 or .21 (depending on the Jameson)

The Deal: $3 Beer til midnight
The Place: Sutra
The Price: FREE
The Details: "R&B from the past, present and future." If we're talking Al Green and Otis then sign me up but if it's Whitney and R. Kelly then I'm gonna pass.

Disco Down: Bloodbath

The Deal: Vodka open bar 11-12AM

Ring In The Spring w/ The Drums

The Deal: $4 drinks
The Place: The Skinny
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Drums are DJing a celebration of coming Spring at The Skinny. The drinks are $4 all night and in the past when The Skinny has made this statement it included top shelf booze too. Hopefully that's going on tonight but I'm not sure.

The Deal: 2 PBRs for $5 or PBR+whiskey shot combo for $5
The Place: Angels & Kings
The Price: FREE
The Details: I've been to Trainwreck a few times and it's always been super crazy packed. You think that would mean good times but the crowd can be kinda douchey and the small quarters might be a little uncomfortable. But the booze is pretty cheap so it's a good way to open or close the night. Oh, and happy birthday Gaby & Kirsten!

Asa Ransom Residency

The Deal: Free cocktails 8:30-9:30PM
The Place: Cameo Gallery
The Price: Free?
The Details: I'm not sure if there's a cover here but generally speaking Cameo shows are pretty cheap anyway. Asa Ransom are playing with Ornery Little Darlings, Not Blood Paint, Deva Mahal and Fredericks Brown. If you dig art then there's some gallery thing from 6-8PM which may indicate additional free booze although that's not a lock.
