Labor Day Freebies at Blue Mondays
For those who are feeling a little strapped for cash at the end of the holiday weekend, but still want to keep the party going, Blue Mondays just announced via a MySpace bulletin that tonight's installment of the weekly event will feature an open bar (well drinks) until 10:30 p.m. The club, which takes place at Boardner's, opens at 10. As is often the case, Blue Mondays' MySpace pals also receive a pass for free entry before 10:30.
As the New Order reference indicates, Blue Mondays boasts an all-'80s soundtrack in its main room. Mike Fix tends to keep the mix varied, but it's heavy on new wave. Out in the courtyard, DJ Bruce Perdew focuses on modern sounds with his indie and electro selections. If you don't feel like dancing, there are retro video games in Boardner's upstairs lounge.
