The Deal: $3 PBR; $5 PBR+whiskey
The Place: Rockstar Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: A party at one of the shadiest and seediest bars in North Brooklyn. If you were wondering what Williamsburg was like before all the dicktard yuppies moved in and greased up the joint well, this is pretty much it. Get there early for some BBQ, cooked in the same alley way Pies N' Thighs once called home.

Brooklyn Salsa Company Launch

The Deal: $3 Brooklyn Beer
The Place: Party Expo
The Price: $2
The Details: These dudes make some bitchin' salsa but can they throw a bitchin' party? We'll find out tonight at Party Expo. They should really concoct a Brooklyn Salsa Bloody Mary for this shindig. I would totally get down on that shit right now. With live performances by The Rassle, NAAM, BoomCLique and Lego Chewbacca.

Dan Deacon

Newtown Radio Presents

The Deal: $3 Cans
The Place: Knitting Factory
The Price: $8
The Details: Two good bands and two that might be (never heard 'em) are playing at the Knit tonight. This joint has the best drinks prices in town for a concert venue so you'll be able to get nice and shit-faced. I'd also suggest pre-show dinner across the street at Fette Sau. FYI: the 2 good bands are Sundelles and Shark? - the question mark is part of the name.
