Spring Break Massacre

The Deal: Rum & Vodka open bar 9:30-10PM
The Place: Gowanus Hotel Ballroom
The Price: $15, $10 w/costume
The Details: I don't even know where to start with this madness. Here goes: a huge warehouse on the Gowanus is the location. If you get there early you're promised a "champagne cruise to our secret floating bar." Then there's an open bar for 2-and-a-half hours. But that's all pre-party! Around 11PM the 2-story slip n slide of blood, fake tan booth, limited commitment wedding photo booth, ham bowling, Johnny2much oyster bar, indoor BBQ pit, morning after pill jello shots, and DJs Dirty Finger, Smallchange, Shadetek and 2melo come out. Jesus Ham-Bowling Christ that's some insane shit! Did GWAR organize this party?

KnifeFight: Zine Night

The Deal: $2 Yuengling; $3 Brooklyn; $3 wells; $3 Jameson
The Place: Pete's Candy Store
The Price: FREE
The Details: I think this is the third KnifeFight event of the week. It's not really a party, more of a happy hour hang out kinda deal. The doors open at 5PM and the show starts at 6:30PM. Look at the event page because I'm not really sure what "show" even means in this case.

Ripped Rubber

The Deal: $2 PBRs all night
The Place: Rockbar
The Price: $5
The Details: Michael T and Ole Koretsky are throwing a party at some new gay(ish) rock & roll bar. OK, I don't actually know it's a gay bar but it's on Christopher Street and the website has a shirtless muscle dude on it so it's really just a wild guess. But don't let that stop you big boy, because gay bars mean hot chicks (just confirm) and free coke. Live performances from The Johns and Starbolt 9. It's also Lilith Le Snob's birthday (see I told you there'd be hot chicks).

Heavy Metal Happy Hour

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 6-9PM
The Place: Arrow Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: Get drunk with a bunch of metal heads, most of whom work at labels and various publications. If you're in a shitty band no one cares about this is the place to harass the shit out of people, "check out my band, bro. We're like Rush meets Dio-era Sabbath." Gee...thanks.

Babes At The Museum

The Deal: $10 all you can drink booze & beer 11-12
The Place: Cameo
The Price: FREE
The Details: A late night dance party with "a slew of DJs" and some band called Sunglasses playing. I never heard of them but I'm an alcoholic with a terrible memory. Anyway, the deal is the show/party is free but the hour open bar is $10. You can def suck down $10 worth of booze in an hour but paying for an open bar just feels dirty.

Smoke & Mirrors

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 10-11
The Place: Zamaan Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: All signs point to douchefest on this one: 1) The flyer looks like a rejected Affliction t-shirt design 2) They have a hookah and thought that was important enough to put on the flyer 3) The DJ "murders dance floors" 4) Zamaan Bar? Uhhh, what? Despite all of this I'm posting it anyway because I want some of you fuckers to check it out and report back. Maybe it's cool. And make sure you finger bang Snooki while you're there, I hear she's easy.

KnifeFight: Ninjasonik Release Party

The Deal: $3 Atomic Lager
The Place: Legion Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: KnifeFight is always pretty rad but when you combine it with Ninjasonik it's a guarantee that all hell will break loose. Don't be surprised if there's an unnannounced Colt 45 open bar at some point, which seems to happen at most KnifeFights. Music by Ninjasonik, The Death Set, Roofeeo, Murdertronics, Complex and "surprise guests." With this crew surprise guests could be anyone from Matt + Kim to Andrew WK to Santigold...but it probably won't be any of those.

The Deal: Free vodka 10-11
The Place: Darkroom
The Price: FREE
The Details: Darkroom isn't my favorite joint in the LES but tonight the combination of free booze and good DJs might make it worth a hang.

Red Dawn After Party

The Deal: Free booze
The Place: Walter Reade Theater
The Price: $12, $8 for students/geezers
The Details: The L Magazine is screening Red Dawn and serving up free booze. If you're not familiar with the movie it's basically teenage Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen fighting commies. Seriously! The free  booze is for the after party once the movie is over but I say sneak in a flask and get tanked during the flick. Fighting commies with Ghost is always more fun when you're drunk, trust me.

Lost Boy & Liquor Store

The Deal: $3 Beer, we think...
The Place: Coco66
The Price: $5
The Details: Lady Bree presents Lost Boy, Liquor Store and couple others. Honestly, we only give a shit about Liquor Store. Besides being an awesome and super fun band, they're called Liquor Store. Even if they sucked we here at Booze Party would feel obligated to support them.

Smell The Glove

The Deal: PBR Open Bar 9-10PM; $2 Bud/Bud Lite bottles til 12; beer+shot combos all night
The Place: St. Jerome's
The Price: FREE
The Details: The raddest party in NYC is back! If $2 beer wasn't good enough well how about free? Nothing like a party that both pays tribute too, and mocks, the glory days of excess. Expect hot broads in skimpy outfits (specifically Amber Star & friends), fist pumping hard rock/punk/metal (DJs Prince Terrence, Fanelli & Matt Kepler) and really cheap booze. I already called out of work on Wednesday in preparation.

It Is What It Is

The Deal: Possibly free booze
The Place: Envoy Enterprises
The Price: FREE
The Details: This is an art gallery reception which almost always means free wine and/or other booze. But it's above a bar, where the after party is being held, so who knows. My hunch is there will be booze but if there isn't don't get all pissy about it - it's a fucking Monday after all. Cerebral Ballzy is playing downstairs right after so that's cool either way.
