Sweatshop Social: Bag Building Workshop


Last Monday of every month, 7-10 p.m.

Not sure if you've heard, but plastic isn't really cool anymore, which is one reason why you should join the nonprofit organization Bags for the People as they show environmentally conscious trendsetters how to make custom cotton bags. Another reason is because there will be drinks, snacks and live music on hand (you bring the fabric of your choice; sewing machines and other materials provided). And then there's the whole saving the planet part too. FREE

Flashy & Trashy


10pm-4am

One of our favorite types of human beings are the flashy and trashy kind, second only to those who don't take themselves too seriously. This, then, is our perfect dance party filled with perfect people: There's grilled cheese and tater tots served at the bar, classic 80s and 90s dance hits and old-school rap fueling the party, and no dress code enforced. In fact, you might see resident Jay McElfresh wearing a marching-band uniform or wizard robe because why not a marching-band uniform or a wizard robe? FREE

Skittles


9pm

What claims to be Brooklyn's only dark wave and post-punk party which caters to "weirdos, punks and queers" is a real rainbow assortment of gloomy-weather dance music spun by DJs Jeffo! and Lark to the cloud-breaking backdrop of Casey Spectacular's projections. Nevermind the sweetness associated with the candy--this month, they celebrate wasted youth. Drink up, taste the rainbow. FREE

Why sit in your apartment listening to the Smiths and wishing you were dead when you could be in the basement of Lit Lounge listening to the Smiths and experiencing a sweltering mass of sweat and self-promotion? "Best DJ" winner of The L's 2009 Nightlife Awards, DJ Jess helms the tables with DJ Bastard for a night of 80s new wave and Brit pop. (Not so coincidentally, Lit was also named "Best Post-Breakup Night Out Spot" in our Nightlife Awards.)
