Nightmare Before Christmas Party

The Deal: Open Bar all night
The Place: Secret Location
The Price: $30
The Details: We're generally opposed to $30 covers but when that includes all the booze you can drink it's not that bad. The location is a secret so RSVP on the Facebook page to find out where it is. DJ sets by Anton Glamb, Hiro Tha Jap, Cobra Krames, Wc Kids and more. This is why you moved to NYC, kids.

CV 1 Year Anniversary w/ Slick Rick

The Deal: Open Bar 10-11:30pm
The Place: CV
The Price: Free???
The Details: I've never been to CV but my best guess is it's kinda douchey. Even if that is the case we've got ourselves almost two hours of free booze and a performance by Slick fucking Rick. That's pretty awesome, no? They aren't clear about whether you have to RSVP or anything so check out the invite page and figure it out.

Out Of This World

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 10-11pm
The Place: 6205 30th Ave, Queens
The Price: $20
The Details: Looking for an adventure into the unknown? We don't know what this is. It looks super weird, but that's why we're listing it. Our best guess is this is some rave type of thing but with strippers and shit. Oh, did we mention it's in Queens? It's that place you end up in if you walk to the end of Greenpoint. Contrary to popular belief you do not fall off the edge of the world. There's a whole other borough above Brooklyn. Pinkie swear.

Pretty Hardcore

The Deal: "Drink Specials" 7-9pm
The Place: Angels & Kings
The Price: Free, I think.
The Details: Generally we don't list "drink specials" parties because we like specifics. But this party is a fundraiser for porn star extrodanaire Jessie Lee of Burning Angel. She got in a bad car wreck and didn't have insurance (Burning Angel doesn't offer health insurance? Surely you jest.). This party will have a raffle for some cool shit plus they have a bunch of hot chicks hanging out that will give you a dance for $10. Anyway, boobs and booze to help a porn star in need. Help out, because you'll never be needed by a porn star again.

Oaxaca: Extra Place Opening

The Deal: Free Margaritas & Beer while they last. $2 tacos.
