Let's: Huddle in the blowout shelter with The Brooklyn Bar Chef at an undisclosed loft deep in the belly of Billyburg. The fu*$ing world is ending! Time to drink like there is no tomorrow! Strong artisan cocktails, no windows, beats on a boombox, no morals, tasty nibbles, no inhibitions, regrets.

We’d love to host: Some sexually-charged nightcrawlers and a few eccentrics with really useful post-apocalypse skill sets, the better to inherit the earth with. After all, by last call, we could be the only ones left... Link:

Emergency Vodka Station

Max is a cocktail-making machine but just in case you find yourself without a drink in your hand, head to the vodka station for a vodka and juice. Yep, open bar specialty cocktails, snacks and emergency vodka, all for $25; pinch yourself, the world may have already ended.

Dress Code

A winter coat and skimpy underthings. This shelter is hot!

Top 5 things to do at this party before the fu#$ing world ends!!!

1) Kiss the Bar Chef!
2) Tweet to the world a pic of your magnificent crotch
3) Put all our phones in the microwave and nuke them
4) Massive group hug of everyone in the room at the stroke of 1030pm
5) A breakdance vs. Gangnam style epic showdown

If you successfully prank call Bill Murray from the party, win an open-bar coupon for life to Max's soon-to-open bar, WTF!
