The Place: The Emerson
The Price: Free?
The Details: A shit load of bands playing a block party at 106 Emerson, which is near The Emerson. The Emerson is where the booze is. You can't drink on the streets in this totalitarian country we live in. Anyway, it's really fucking nice out so this is a good bet.

Etnies Presents

The Deal: Free Beer
The Place: KCDC
The Price: FREE
The Details: This is a skateboard art show. There will be bros rippin' and thrashin' and gettin' all gnar up in this bitch on the half pipe. This jam starts at 8 and the free beer flows until it's gone. Skate or Die...or if you get drunk enough, Skate and Die.

BK Salsa Summer Slammer

The Deal: Tequila Open Bar at 9pm
The Place: Tortilleria Chinantla
The Price: $5
The Details: A party thrown by a salsa company in a tortilla factory - where do I sign up? The event page says nothing about an open bar but MyOpenBar.com says it's happening and those dudes know a thing or two about free booze. The party will also feature Micheladas, which is like a Bloody Mary for people too poor to buy vodka but just skatin' by enough to afford a Corona. In other words, delicious.

Seeking Space 2011

The Deal: "Drinks on the house"
The Place: The Loom
The Price: FREE
The Details: Some sort of art show which is part of Bushwick Open Studios. Fun fact, most of the venues that are part of BOS are in Williamsburg, they just want to sound tough so they say Bushwick instead. Dudes who weigh 130 pounds need all the help they can get, which also explains the beards and tattoos. Scary stuff.

Booze Traveler

The Deal: 4 Hour Open Bar
The Place: Half Moon Cruise Ship
The Price: $50
The Details: This is a booze cruise for hipsters, or something. Drinking on a boat is pretty excellent but at $50 I'm not sure it's worth it. For normal people that's probably a good deal but I eat ramen noodles out of a rusty soup can I heat up on my electric burner (which I plug in to a socket in my neighbors apt, which I access through a hole in the wall). Life is good.

The Wild Ones

The Deal: 2-4-1 drink specials 12-1
The Place: White Noise
The Price: FREE
The Details: Michael T and Samuel Valentine are your DJs at this East Village rock n' roll party. The crowd is gorgeous darling...compared to slobs I surround myself with at least.

The Deal: $4 whiskey shots; 2-4-1 drinks 3-4am

Throwbacks & Booty Shakers

The Deal: $1 shots, $3 cans, $5 beer+shot
The Place: Blackout

The Details: "Lose your shit. Make a baby. Be a fucking star." The order here is incorrect, once you have a baby you will not be a "fucking star".

Showpaper Video Recap
