Crystal Castles Party

The Deal: $3 drinks, $2 beers all night
The Place: The Living Theatre
The Price: $5
The Details: This is a weird one for sure. We've got ourselves some kind of Crystal Castles tribute party or something like that. Are they really big enough to warrant something like this? In addition to cheap booze you'll also find three contortionists and a Japanese acrobat pole dancer...see, it's weird shit, man.

Disco Pool Party

The Deal: $4 wells; $3 PBR+shot
The Place: Grand Billiards
The Price: $5
The Details: The $5 cover is bogus but otherwise this is rad. So the HUGE ass pool hall on Grand St. is under new management and throwing some wicked parties. Last night they had a crazy show and tonight it's a DJ party. What makes it so insane is the unreal drink specials. I mean, $3 for a shot of Jim Beam & a PBR? That's fan-fucking-tastico. I don't even give a shit about what else is going on. But on that note, free billiards all night!

What's Crackin'

The Deal: 2-4-1 Jameson 10-11; $3 PBR all night.
The Place: Savalas
The Price: FREE
The Details: I think I've been to this party a few times. If I recall, it's a whole lot of 90's bootie jams mixed in with the standards you'd expect. So basically it's a decent party but don't be surprised if you hear some Bell Biv Devoe or "Pump Up The Jams" at some point. With your favorite BK DJs: DirtyFinger, Full Time Fun and Cobra Krames.

The Place: The Studio at Webster Hall

The Details: It's Trash, baby. The legendary party you used to go to and make out with naked strangers at. It's still going strong in the basement of Webster Hall.

Impose Test Patterns #17

The Deal: $1 PBR 8-11; $3 Rolling Rock
The Place: Don Pedro's
The Price: $8
The Details: Even if you haven't heard of some of the bands, Impose throws pretty bitchin' parties. The bands are White Mystery, Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls), Reading Rainbow and Easter Vomit. Don Pedro's is a fun bar to get hammered at, and don't forget about the pool table in the basement.

Mating Season

The Deal: $1 Tequila shots & $2 drafts 10-11pm; Vodka Open Bar 2am
The Place: Gallery Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: A party dedicated to scantily clad babes in animal masks...we're OK with that. The only issue is so are lots of other horny dudes, so hopefully this doesn't turn into the 2010 NYC BroFest. So if you're a dude just stay home or you might ruin it for everyone else, you selfish bastard. With DJ's Full Time Fun, Mess Kid and AK.

Salute Your Shorts

The Deal: Wine Open Bar 8-9pm
The Place: Public Assembly
The Price: $10
The Details: The FilmShop is throwing one of their screening parties/shows/dance parties at Public Assembly. The theme of the short films is summer nostalgia, which means you'll here "Summertime" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince at least twice, or so one can hope. There's going to be a performance by The Rassle and free wine, which makes for a good combo.

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 10:30-11:30pm
The Place: Beauty Bar

The Details: Tiswas used to be a hot shit party back in the day. Since then a new generation has taken over nightlife and this party kinda got pushed to the back burner. But hey, free vodka and convenient location is definitely worth something.
