Old Hollywood Grand Opening

The Deal: Open Bar 7-9pm
The Place: Old Hollywood
The Price: FREE
The Details: Old Hollywood is a store, a new store. They are luring you in with free booze, food, DJs and bands in hopes that you'll buy something. Little do they know you're completely broke and are more likely to steal something.

Crawfish Comedy Boil

The Deal: Free Beer & Crawfish 1-3pm for $40
The Place: Village Pourhouse
The Price: $10 to enter or $40 for entry, food & booze
The Details: Normally I'd never list something that costs $40 but this might be worth it. First, it's for charity so even though it's a bit steep, it's for a good cause. Second, Eugene Mirman is one of the comedians performing! Plus, when you do the math $40 for 2 hours of beer, crawfish (best shellfish, ever! fuck off lobster) and a comedy show featuring Eugene Mirman, Louis Katz, Seth Herzog and bunch of other comedians it ain't so bad. Oh, and the charity helps families affected by the Gulf spill. I told you it was for a good cause.

Neighborhood Watch

The Deal: "drinks bring own fool"
The Place: Live With Animals Gallery
The Price: $1
The Details: Some sort of art show that's been going on since Thursday. Today is the last day to check it out. Apparently it's a BYOB deal, or at least that's my best guess. See The Deal up there? That's what they had on the event page. Sounds like BYOB but who knows.

Sacred Bones Presents

The Deal: Svedka Vodka Open Bar 9-9:45pm
The Place: Coco66
The Price: $7
The Details: This is a record release show for Amen Dunes with Gary War, Coconuts and Prince Rama playing. I don't know who any of these motherfuckers are because I'm a withered old man who hates youth culture. Although, there's a pretty good chance the people involved in this are all older than I am. See, old people are dictating what's cool to you, kiddo. And you thought you were all independent and original.

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 11:30-12 & 2-2:30
The Place: Darkroom
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Hussle Club crew's (Prince Terrence & Carol Sharks) weekly party at Darkroom. The split open bar forces you to stay all night and buy booze but you're broke so you'll be buying ginger ale and dumping that Popov from your flask into it...I'm on to you punks.

Ella Wednesdays

The Deal: $3 PBR
The Place: Ella
The Price: FREE
The Details: Every Wednesday Nicky Digital and the downtown hipster elite meet up at Ella. To be honest, it's a decent party but the drinks are crazy expensive. I think I paid $7 for a bottle of beer last time I was there. As such, I rarely go and when I do I get drunk as shit at The Johnson's first because I ain't buying $7 Bud Light. Perhaps due to the recession, or maybe to add some excitement by bringing in the riff-raff, they're now offering $3 PBRs, and now $7 gets you a beer AND a shot! Watch out richsters, here we come!

French Touch

The Deal: $3 Porkslap; $3 off house cocktails
The Place: The Counting Room
The Price: FREE
The Details: A new venue bringing you a new party. I haven't been to this joint yet but I hear it's pretty fancy but the drinks are dive bar prices. Sounds like a good place to take a date. Tonight's special guest DJ is Full Time Fun from Rando.

The Deal: Open Bar 10-12
The Place: Home Sweet Home
The Price: FREE
The Details: CrushDream and Kalvin Kline are your special guests...this means nothing to me. Free booze is cool though. Expected hipsters masquerading as goth kids.

Music Without Borders

The Deal: Absolut Open Bar 8-10pm; $3 beer; $5 Jack
The Place: Kush

The Details: What does music without borders mean? I have no friggin' clue. But a 2 hour open bar is the universal language. The cheap and free drinks make this a good option to start the night, even if the scene is a bit too posh for your filthy derelict ass.
