The Deal: Free Beer from a Keg until it kicks
The Place: Party Expo
The Price: $7
The Details: A bunch of bands playing in a DIY space with one of the best rock n' roll DJs (Jonathan Toubin) in NYC on the decks. This is basically an old fashion Brooklyn warehouse party and that's fucking awesome. Get there early and help destroy the keg. Just like when you were in Sigma Chi - yeah, we know you were a frat boy before you moved to BK and got all artsy. It's cool, bro.

RethinkPopMusic Presents

The Deal: Spaten Open Bar 7:30-8:30
The Place: The Studio
The Price: $12
The Details: $12 is fucking steep for a bunch of bands you can see for $5 on any given night in Brooklyn but when you think about it a Spaten at most joints will run you like $8, so drink two and the jokes on them! If you haven't had Spaten it's the delicious beer they serve at every fucking beer garden in the world in enormous steins.

Heavy Metal Happy Hour

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 6-9pm
The Place: Arrow Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: Unwind with a bunch of fat, smelly metalheads after work - and I mean that in the best possible way (sure beats a bunch of pink polo shirt yupsters). The guest DJ is the band Thorns, I have no idea who they are but based on the name I'm going with Norse (or some kind of Scandanavian inspired) black metal with a touch of metalcore (how'd I do?).

Friday Drunx

The Deal: $5 beer+shot specials

MyOpenBar And Tammy Hart Present

The Deal: Svedka Open Bar 8-???
The Place: Coco66
The Price: $16
The Details: When you work in nightlife one day you look at yourself and you go - "I get assholes drunk for a living, I contribute nothing of value to society." That's when you either put together charity events, move to a hut in the desert or blow your brains out (trust me, I know). MyOpenBar is throwing a party for charity with Sondre Lerche & Oberhofer and a reading by Shalom Auslander. Pretty classy for Coco66. The tickets are pricey but it's ALL going to charity and you get free booze so pony up.
