If you're reading this, then we all survived the Mayan apocalypse prediction that the world would end on Dec. 21, 2012 when the ancient civilization's calendar cycle ran out.
Phew. Looks like we just need to buy a new calendar! (Papél has some nice ones.)
Still, there's something to be said for celebrating today as though it were your last on Earth. In the spirit of opportunism, a handful of local bars will be throwing Mayan apocalypse parties tonight.
If you ill-advisedly told your boss or mother-in-law yesterday what you really thought of them, here's where you need to go:
Lavender Lake, 383 Carroll Street, Gowanus -
Drink specials, lovely decor and an easygoing vibe—there are worse ways to go!
The Way Station, 683 Washington Avenue, Prospect Heights -
At the aptly titled "It's the End of the World As We Know It" Party, happy hour drink specials will extend all night long to those who arrive dressed for the occasion. Plus, Avi Fox-Rosen will play Klezmer Kristmass music at 10 p.m.
Powerhouse on 8th, 1111 8th Avenue, Park Slope -
The renowned DUMBO bookstore's new sister location in Park Slope wasted no time in throwing together the 'My Apocalypse' event, where a bunch of authors will share how they’d prefer to see the world end.
Frank's Cocktail Lounge, 660 Fulton Street, Fort Greene -
While the bar isn't technically hosting a Mayan apocalypse party, it's definitely a Brooklyn watering hole one should experience at least once before the lights go out.
