It’s Brooklyn’s turn, NYC Bar Crawl 3/19-3/22
Apologies, ahead of time, but this week’s bar crawl is very Brooklyn-Centric. The Black Party, Brooklyn Nightlife Awards, and TS Madison? There is just so much happening here this weekend. Time to fill up your Metrocard and get your ass across the river.
It’s the 3rd Thursday of the month and this is usually my route for the night.
Alotta Stuff: Get to the Metropolitan Bar early for some new duds and fun. Brooklyn Legends Thorgy Thor and Alotta McGriddles host this monthly auction of vintage and gently used clothes. It’s fun, fast-paced and there is plenty of whiskey to go around. Sponsored by Out of the Closet. Metropolitan Bar, Brooklyn. 8pm-Midnight. No COVER (they accept credit and cash for the auction)
Dragnet: Stick around Metro for the longest running drag competition in Brooklyn hosted by Merrie Cherry. The Reason I love this show (Besides the fact it gave me my first competition win) is that it’s all about new talent. I think there is room for as many drag queens as want to be born and this is a chance for them to show off their individuality and what they have to bring to the art form. Show starts directly after Alotta Stuff. Metropolitan Bar, Brooklyn. Midnight-ish. No COVER
Rify Royalty’s Straight Acting: After Dragnet, I usually jet over to This N That for Rify’ s monthly party. If you want to see all the shows, though, you need to get there earlier than I. Straight Acting has been on point since it started back in October or November. A satire on the ‘Masc4Masc’ ideal in our community, this party is for EVERYONE. This N That, Brooklyn. 11pm. No COVER
Also happening tonight…
Mall Goth: Food Court: I haven’t been here yet, but I’ve heard good things, and the theme this month? Food Court? I can’t. It’s so funny. Hosted by Mark Dommu of the Culture Whore and Charlene of Body Ache. Tonight’s special guest is Lucy Balls. Tandem, Bushwick. 11pm. No Cover

Bootie NYC: This legendary West Coast party is bringing it’s Mash-up Madness to NYC once again. This was one of the first parties I ever went to when I first moved to LA years ago. I was so glad to here that they are bringing their magic back to NYC. First 100 people in the door get an exclusive CD of the Top 10 mashups. DJs A plus D and Lobsterdust. Gramercy Theatre, New York. 10pm. $15 Adv $20 at the door.
