Whore House: House Of Whorrors

The Deal: BYOB
The Place: TBD (undisclosed 3 floor brownstone)
The Price: $10 lassies, $15 laddies
The Details: In my opinion the best way to spend a Halloween in this town is a good old fashioned BYOB house party. The location of this jam is a secret so RSVP on Facebook and I'm sure they'll let ya know. The lineup for this is kinda insane: Anton Glamb, Murdertronics, Hiro Tha Jap, Night Spitter, WcKids, Rocky Business, Mr. Starr City, Johnny Nelson and a shit ton more. This will be crazy, in the biblical sense.

There's everything from a circus to DJs & bands (Das Racist) to comedy (Reggie Watts) and it sounds pretty killer. This starts at 7pm and goes to 7am so drink a few Loko's before you hit it.

Four Loko About To Get Canned

Well kids, Brooklyn's latest incarnation of crack seems to be headed down the path of damnation. Much like it's older, sexier sister Sparks, it appears that Four Loko (and the fat, ugly step-sister Joose) will soon be banned by the government. This means they'll either have to nix the caffeine or close up shop. The press is referring to it as "blackout in a can". I don't know about you but I've blacked out on just about everything so why are we singling out the Loko?

Sparks was somewhat decent tasting and managed to stay on the shelves despite having the caffeine drained and just being weird flavored malt liqour now. Four Loko and Joose have a bigger challenge because, well, they taste like cat piss. With energy and high content alcohol people basically said "I don't give a fuck if it tastes like the bottom of a hobo's piss jar - it fucks me up, son!" But soon it will just be gross ass malt liquor. Let people drink this poison if they so choose. Let America live! FREEDOM!
