OK Prom

The Deal: Cheap Booze
The Place: Shea Stadium
The Price: $20 for 2, bring a date. $5 after midnight.
The Details: Hipster prom in a DIY space in Williamsburg with live bands DJs and artists. The bands are all doing cover sets which could be awesome. The Beets are playing Beatles tunes, Slasher Rick is playing all motown covers, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt are playing all doo-wop and so on. It's $10 a head for the show portion of the night. If you show up after midnight it's $5 but you miss the bands. I'm not sure what the booze costs at Shea but I'm pretty sure it's cheap, it is a DIY space after all.

Wild East Campfire

The Deal: BYOB
The Place: The Wild East
The Price: Sliding Scale
The Details: The night starts with a screening of The Last Of The Mohicans, then there's bands and DJs, none of whom I've heard of but I don't think that matters. Bring your own booze and food (they're grilling) or if you prefer there's a cash bar too. Sounds like a rad little party.

Sex, Drugs, Guac & Roll

The Deal: 2 shots of tequila for 1 avocado and 1 lime. Probably cheap beer too.
The Place: House of YES
The Price: $10 B4 12; $15 after

Taco Tuesday

The Deal: 2-4-1 drinks 7-8pm
The Place: Hudson Terrace
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Fader and The Orchard are having some kind of amateur bartending throwdown. Unfortunately, it's at Hudson Terrace which means lots of douche and pricey drinks. The "specials" include $5 Sol and $7 margaritas - see what I mean? The so called specials are even more than what scumbags like us are willing to pay. But from 7-8 there's a 2-4-1 special which means 2 Sols for $5 or 2 margaritas for $7, which ain't bad. Proceeds go to Musicians On Call.
