Rock Yard: Bikes In The Kitchen 5 Year Anniversary

The Deal: Umm, no idea.
The Place: Rock Yard
The Price: FREE
The Details: Here's the deal, I don't know "The Deal" for this one. I think the beer is reasonably priced and if not, you can flask it. Whatever the booze situation is this will be a daytime rager for sure. The Rock Yard is presented by JellyNYC, who throw the pool parties. This edition is the Bikes In The Kitchen anniversary party. BITK throw the best damn DIY parties in all of Brooklyn. The combination is sure to fucking amaze! Plus the lineup is insane: The Death Set, Ninjasonik, Snakes Say Hiss + more live. Plus DJ sets from Dirty Finger, Roofeeo & C.Lo. There are also "secret guests" and with this crew that could be MIA, Santigold, Matt & Kim, Spank Rock or even fucking Bjork. 2-8pm.

Fashion's Night Out

We spent a ton of time on these listings. There are a few things to consider though.
  1. RSVP Might Be Closed: It's not our party and it's day of. If you RSVP you might get rejected. You still might get in though if you just show up.
  2. Booze Shortage: The booze might run out. Shit happens. Again, it's not our party so don't complain to us.
  3. Celeb / DJ / Band Wasn't There: I don't care. If you go to see these people and not to drink then that's on you buddy. 
  4. Info Is Wrong: This is why we list the source. It's their fault if it's wrong, not ours. 
  5. THE ADDRESS IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST: If you're wondering where "The Place" is just look at the bottom of the post, it's there. You're good.
