Shangri La Launch Party

The Deal: Unlimited Beer & Wine!
The Place: Shangi La
The Price: $12
The Details: One of the raddest venues in Brooklyn is finally reopening! The launch party includes live sets by Kid Congo Powers, K-Holes (members of Black Lips & Golden Triangle), Electric Tickle Machine, Bad Girlfriend and Brian Newman Jazz Trio. Plus the best DJ in NYC is spinning killer dance soul and rock n' roll - Mr. Jonathan Toubin. There's also Pretty Things Peep Show and Burlesque (sexy time) and a bunch of visual artists! This shit will be beyond dope.

Kentucky Derby Party

The Deal: $4 Maker's Mark Mint Juleps
The Place: TBD
The Price: FREE
The Details: There's about 100 Derby parties but this is the only one I'm listing because this one is free, in North Brooklyn and sounds pretty rad. There's a bluegrass band playing from 4-6, Southern BBQ and a hat contest for the broads.

Just Another Dance Party

The Deal: $3 High Life, $4 wells
The Place: Beauty Bar Brooklyn
The Price: FREE
The Details: I quite enjoy writing witty commentary about parties but sometimes the name of the party makes it unnecessary. This is one of those times.

Ohio Party 14: Prom Edition

The Deal: $1 Colt 45 11-12
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: Free?
The Details: Remember prom? No. Oh right, you were a huge nerd and couldn't find a date or were you the rebel who "protested" it? Either way you're a groovy hipster now so ask that American Apparel model you somehow landed to the prom. Dust off that tux from your catering days, they're serving Colt 45 here bub, so you gotta look sharp.

McCarren Park Lurk Fest

The Deal: $4 "to-go" Big Buds
The Place: Turkey's Nest / McCarren Park
The Price: FREE
The Details: I just cruised through McCarren Park and there are about 100 hot broads in tiny bikinis. So I suggest grabbing a "to-go" Big Bud from Turkey's Nest and cruisin' the park for babes. Creep out, lurk hard.

GERMS (The Last One EVER)

The Deal: PBR Open Bar 10-11PM; Vodka Open Bar 11-12AM
The Place: Europa
The Price: Free?
The Details: Well, it turns out hosting a hipster dance party at a Polish night club doesn't work. Who da thunk it? Tonight is the last ever GERMS so come rage with the underage (it's 18+). There will be two hour long open bars, which is dandy.

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 6-9; FREE Brooklyn Beers at some point

Wild Yaks

The Deal: $3 Atomic Lager

Smoke & Mirrors III

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 11-12

Black Lips Show

The Deal: $3 PBR (usually)
The Place: Knitting Factory
The Price: FREE w/RSVP (list closed, sucker)
The Details: Black Lips are playing a free show tonight at the Knitting Factory. These dudes are fucking awesome live so if you were lucky enough to RSVP before the list closed then you better go. KF usually has $3 PBR but it wouldn't surprise me if they upped the price tonight due to the influx of drunk degenerates (ie. Black Lips fans). So it's getting listed but you should pregame to be safe.

Black Lips After Party & DJ Set

The Deal: Open bar 12-1
The Place: Good Company
The Price: FREE
The Details: I had no idea that Hope Lounge changed their name and/or went out of business. The yard was cool but overall it kinda sucked. Anywho, after the Black Lips show the band is heading over to this joint to DJ with their buds from Golden Triangle.

NC-17 & Electric Boom

The Deal: Vodka open bar at 12
The Place: Lit
The Price: FREE
The Details: NC-17 has been around since the days of the Romans but Electric Boom, the party upstairs, is brand new. As with all opening nights this is sure to be a shit show but in this case I mean that in a good way. Good luck kids, it's tough running a weekly.

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 11-12
The Place: Darkroom

Sweet Paradise

The Deal: $2 cans of beer; $4 Jack
The Place: Sweet Paradise
The Price:
The Details: I don't know much about this party but ARQ is one of the dudes behind Rando, which is a killer party, so maybe this will be fun. Either way it's worth stopping by for the super cheapo booze.

The Deal: Vodka open bar 10:30-11:30
The Place: Beauty Bar

Black Lips & Golden Triangle DJ Party

The Deal: $3 PBR
The Place: Motor City
The Price: FREE 
The Details: The kids from Golden Triangle and Black Lips are DJing...do you still need convincing? If this was 1998 I would 'Nuff Said, but it's not so I won't.

Another Black Lips DJ Set

The Deal: Vodka open bar 11-12AM
The Place: Cameo
The Price: FREE
The Details: Cole, the dude from Black Lips that drinks his own piss, is DJing at Cameo tonight. He's considered the crazy guy in Black Lips, which is kinda like being the hairy guy in Al Qaeda or the slutty chick on a reality TV show or the fat guy in a McDonalds...or America (zing!). I could have gone with either on the last one, same thing really. Keep an eye out for special guests, like Cole's penis.

Disco Down Beach Party

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 11-12
The Place: Happy Ending
The Price: FREE
The Details: Beaches are the new black. Surf bands are cool now. Why not turn an old fashion disco party into a beach party? Oh, because that would require tans, sun and rum. Fuck that! Pasty broads and vodka is what you're getting and you'll like it god damn it.

Broken Teeth

The Deal: 2-4-1 wells til 12; $3 Bud & Bud Lite 10-12
The Place: Sin Sin
The Price: FREE
The Details:
Broken Teeth is a dance party where they smash your mouth with a hammer as soon as you walk in. The Tooth Fairy gives them like a buck a pop for those bad boys, that's why there's no cover. Sounds like a good deal right? Don't worry, the booze will numb the pain.

Pendu Disco

The Deal: Free Pernod Absinthe 9-10PM
The Place: Glasslands
The Price: $7
The Details: When a party, or a band, changes their name it should worry you. It either means they're shifting gears and ruining what you once loved or no one's been showing up and they think a name change will fool people into coming. Either way this is the same party they have at Glasslands every Tuesday, once cleverly known as Tuesdya Nite Disco...maybe they just realized the name sucked.

The Deal: $3 vodka & bud 12-1

The Deal: Free shot w/ song; $3 Atomic Lager
The Place: Legion
The Price: FREE
The Details: Admit it, the last time you were singing karaoke you were wishing there was a big screen with some random creep dude jerking off on it. It's cool, apparently you're not the only one because tonight we've got Chatroulette Karaoke. You get a shot for every song you sing and you might even get a money shot. Score!

World Penguin Day

The Deal: Open Bar 2-5PM
The Place: Penguin Store
The Price: $8 + RSVP
The Details: The Penguin store is charging you money to come to their store and buy their shit. Oh, and you gotta RSVP too. So they build their mailing list and charge you to walk in... Kinda sounds like bullshit, no? Well at least the whole store is 20% off and the booze is free. Make sure you drink at least $30 worth, cool?
