Farewell 2 Kisses

The Deal: BYOB
The Place: Kisses Loft
The Price: FREE
The Details: This sounds like the best loft party in a long damn time. Shark?, Gunfight! and Nasty Ness (what? No inappropriate punctuation Nasty Ness?) are playing. We're also promised a "special secret guest". Anyway, the dude who throws parties is splitting town and this is the last hurrah, so he's going big.

Personality Crisis

The Deal: "Cheap Booze"
The Place: Shea Stadium

Blackout Bar Tuesday

The Deal: 2-4-1 beers
The Place: Blackout Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: This was the super hip, new joint for awhile but I think the hype is dying down a bit. I think hype is stupid so I'm stoked. Now I can go lurk in the corner, double-fisting my beer without drunk hipsters puking on my Crocs. Rad!

Beauty Massacre

The Deal: Bud Open Bar 12-12:30
The Place: Lit
The Price: FREE
The Details: Too bad the free Bud only lasts for a half hour because being drunk is pretty much a must at Lit. How else are you supposed to deal with the bartenders (they're known be mean, to put it mildly).

Oktoberfest At Roberta's

The Deal: I don't know.
The Place: Roberta's
The Price: FREE
The Details: This just looks like a good time and it's an Oktoberfest party so there will be heavy drinking. However, I don't know what a brew will cost you or if it'll be cheap. Live sets by Pass Kontrol, Lady Magma, Gunfight & more. Watch some football at home while you pre-game first, that way if it's way expensive to drink it won't matter because you'll already be hammered.
