Free in NYC this weekend:

14 12 2006


Filter Magazine Party
Ben Sherman Store

96 Spring St,
The Deal: 8-11pm
Bass Ale
Live performance by Ra Ra Riot, DJ Josh Madden. You’re supposed to RSVP, but the deadline was Monday, so just make up some gibberish at the door — retail store parties are usually a cake walk.

Secret Lounge
Secret Lounge
525 W.29th Street,
btw 10th and 11th Avenues
The Deal: 10-11pm
well drinksA sumptuous chandelier-lit, dramatically banquetted enclave, Secret Lounge is this week’s closest thing to a gay bar (assuming you don’t count all the polysexual “Trash” rip-off festivities every other night of the week). It’s in Chelsea, but the crowd is mixed. So don’t get disppointed, chickies, if those smartly dressed guys you’ve been eyeing in the joint start tonguing after a few trips down the well.

Dirty Hands: A Group Print Show
Cinders Gallery
103 Havemeyer,
btw Hope and Grand
(718) 388-2311
The Deal: 6-10pm
arty party boozeSwoon, Ian Vanek of Japanther, Kim Schifino of Matt and Kim, and designer Sto all have work in this sizable group show. Gore is a popular theme among this crowd, so the bloody hand drawing on the invite’s not exactly a revelation.

93 Second Avenue,
bt. 5th and 6th Streets
East Village
(212) 777-7987
The Deal: 12-12:30
PBR and well vodka drinks, no coverThey’re very generous over at Lit — a fucking half-hour open bar, and PBR, no less? Might as well spit in my decolletage and ask me to tap dance at my own mother’s funeral…on Christmas!

you forgot to mention the CapIQ holiday party, which I’m crashing tonight. Rob won’t be there, so you might even be welcome. 😉
