Follow the Leader! goes to Six Six Sick

Six Six Sick is a weekly electronic dance party at a lounge in the Lower East Side. We've gone there a few times and it's never anything less than a blast. Did I mention there's no cover and free vodka?

Tuesday, January 20th to Wednesday, January 21st.

Time: 10 PM to 4 AM.

Location: Happy Endings
302 Broome Street

Price: Free.

Drinks: Free vodka cocktails from 11 PM to 12 AM; $3 Pabst Blue Ribbon; I've never tried to sneak in booze, but it seems like it would be pretty easy.

Music: DJs Micprobes and Peter High spin sets heavy on the electro with some pop and funk thrown in for good flavor. A few of songs I've heard there are...

Madonna - Into the Groove (Sidechains remix)
MGMT - Kids
S.O.S. - Take Your Time

Crowd: A mix of young hipsters and Euro-trash; free booze means they're drunk as Hell, but doesn't ensure that they'll dance; downstairs tends to be a fire hazard as midnight (i.e. last call for free vodka) approaches; after that the crowd thins out a little, but things never really die down; in the off-chance that the lower level doesn't please, just walk upstairs to Disco Down on the ground level and discover a whole 'nother party.

ID: 21+, but they are more harsh with guys; the first time I went Olek almost didn't get in because the photo on his ID was taken ages ago and doesn't really look like him anymore; on the other hand, Kat was using a friend's ID and got in no problem; government issued only.

Coat Check: They have it, but I'm unsure of the price; every time I go I just stay my stuff into these seating-area cubicles--you'd understand if you had been there before.

Directions: F train to Delancey; walk four blocks West on Delancey until you hit Eldridge; walk one block South to Broome; turn East on Broome; Happy Endings is near the corner; it still has the red awning of the location's former Chinese massage parlor.

Pregame: Lazy Catfish
593 Lorimer Street
Free Pabst Blue Ribbon from 8:30 PM to 10 PM.
