What better to get you out into the spring air than a little curiosity and free alcohol? Open bars are the Pandora’s Box of New York City. You never know if you’re going to come across some foreign art exhibit or new tequila launch party, and why not let that devilish grin take over while you keep your cash in your pocket and get away with a few free drinks to kick off the evening. This week there are plenty of open bar specials to take advantage of.
Let’s say you have a limited amount of money, or perhaps no money at all, but you’ve already gotten it in your head that you’d like to have a few drinks. Glancing over at the jar of loose change, you refuse, as you should, to settle for a 40 oz. from the bodega on the corner. So you start to scroll through your contacts for a fully stocked fridge, err, friend, but wait! Here in New York City, at any moment, on any night of the week, exists an extraordinary phenomenon known as an "open bar," and it’s only a matter of knowing when and where.
Come support A Global Friendship's (AGF) next big event for their Opportunity Within Reach campaign, Music Medley! Listen to live music all night while enjoying free food and drinks!
A Global Friendship is a non profit service and education organization whose aim is to help develop poor communities in an effort to end global poverty. To reach this goal, AGF works with artisans around the globe, selling their handmade works in the West. We're especially excited that AGF will be selling their exquisite handmade jewelry for below retail price at the event!
What are you doing on Saturday, August 6th?
How does a night of complimentary hors d'oeuves, an OPEN bar, and live music sound?
Then come out to STROGA in Adams Morgan, where the 2nd annual Mid-Summer Night for Dreams is happening! The event will be raising funds for Dreams for Kids DC, an organization that empowers youth living in poverty and those with disabilities by uniting them with their peers, recognizing their abilities, and allowing their voices to be heard.
The event is also a platform to welcome the organization's new Executive Director, Glenda Fu, while wishing outgoing Director Andrew Horn the best as he moves to Chicago to take over national operations for Dreams for Kids.
With Mars Volta producing new material as sporadically as their musical flavor, Brooklyn's own Mean Little Blanket is looking to fill your prescription for progressive post punk. Equal parts flying ear worms and dance floor head trips, MLB is a tight little combo ready to splay its tentacles across the New York scene and beyond.
They'll be picking up the pieces tonight at the Trash Bar in Brooklyn, making the most of the open bar that comes wrapped up with the cover charge from 8 to 9. Come wet your whistle before the band blows you dry at 9.

And who is Bruce, you ask? Only the beloved and long-awaited offspring of Bessie, the mascot of The Sunburnt Cow. The MooLifeGroup is throwing Bruce's first birthday at The Sunburnt Calf on the Upper West Side this Friday, April 1st. When you RSVP and bring $10 cash to the door, it's all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink for two hours. That's right - I said 10 bucks. We all know the downtown spot has long been offering the $20 two-hour open bar, and we're ecstatic they're bringing it (and an even better deal) to the UWS. The hours are only from 6:30-8:30 or 8:30-10:30, but that's more than enough time to get you well-fed and well-oiled for a great Friday night. Don't forget to tip your bartenders - we don't want this to be a one-time thing!

If you're not actually attending the Oscars this year, set your TiVo and head out to support those fighting cancer at the American Cancer Society 's charity ball at Ajna on the 27th. The event is to take place at Ajna, greeting guests through the cylindrical slate entranceway. A live auction will take place after dinner, with all proceeds going towards the ACS. Such items being auctioned include a Victor Sabido jewelry piece, an Urban Boulder jewelry piece, a one-night stay in the new Sanctuary Hotel in Times Square, a couture piece by designer Peter Soronen, a gift certificate from celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino, a limited edition photography session by Nicholas Routzen, and a private ballet lesson with Akua Noni Parker (of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater). Tickets are only $85 for a 3-course dinner and an open bar reception, and after the auction a DJ willl spin beats for the crowd until 2:30 am. You must dress to impress, though - the event is a black tie one.
Call it a bucket list for your New Years Eve night success. Sexy outfit, great date, amazing venue, and open bar. Right now you may not be thinking about open bar but you should. It is just as important as the midnight kiss.
Venues and parties differ on the open bar policy so know the hours and the shelf liquor that’s free. Also have a plan to get to the bar. With any open bar it is tuff to get the bartender’s attention. Cleave works if you’re a girl and the bartender is a man. Tip well and that bartender will remember you the rest of the night. While most like open bar because you can save or not spend any money, tipping beats not drinking at all during the night.
