Fri 1.18 - Castaways Casino Club

Friday, Jan 18, 9pm-late, $10-20 sliding scale donation, 21+ with ID (25+ suggested)
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio

 

Calling all faux millionaires to litter their gold coin at our illicit gambling establishment far offshore on the banks of Gowanus. The casino club will feature blackjack, roulette and the star attraction of the night: Texas hold'em tournament, played at 10pm, 11pm, and 12am for a $50 value prize. For non-tourney games, a member credit system will let you use your winnings for future party entry, drinks, etc (win last time? your credit is still good!).

The original Castaways resort in Vegas was peak-60s polynesian insanity. We'll honor our namesake with tropical drinks & beats, for full tiki party mode alongside the games. Even if you don't gamble, you win.

Dress suggestions: funky party-wear, 1960s Polynesian kitsch, faux fancy, vintage lounge, sparkly cocktail, or other non-sloppy attire appreciated. No elaborate costumes or formalwear required, but you know we love it when you put in effort.

We'll turn the heat way up for some sweaty dancing joy. Wear layers!

Lastly: we still have a few of those ridiculous tiki to-go tumblers from the last Castaways. Take your tropical drinks to go in one of those bad boys for only $10.


 


1.25 - The Cocktail Experiment

Fri, Jan 25, 8pm-12am, FREE + FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient, 21+ (25+ recommended)
Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK - use form on top of page for location

Event on Facebook | Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio / #thecocktailexperiment

Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive craft cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious.

Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and a friend get a complimentary round (up to three friends, if it's a full size bottle of something excellent!). No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.

Is your birthday in Jan? Your first experiment is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. Yes, you can order food to be delivered, too. For everyone else: free un-birthday treats!

*Tips on bringing ingredients: we welcome both liquor and mixer challenges, but please no basic juices or sodas...that's not what craft cocktails are made of. Consider: half-size bottles, homemade infusions or syrups, that forgotten bottle of weird booze you don't know what to do with, unique amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy. Small request: nothing that tastes of anise or licorice, please! If that's the flavor you want, we have plenty of that in the bar, including the best absinthe you'll ever have.
