It’s been one year since Broken Land opened its doors for business, and in that time, they’ve not only earned their place as a staple watering hole in Greenpoint, but they’ve also landed on our list of best outdoor bars for Killer Cocktails. You think finding a spot at the bar is tough on any given Friday at this joint, just wait until this Friday during their one-year anniversary party. Not only will you enjoy the usual fun of hanging out with praying mantises in the backyard–yes, there are praying mantises in the backyard–sipping on “Ryan’s Mom’s Margaritas” and piña coladas, you’ll also be treated to free cans of Modelo and whiskey shots until the bar runs out. (Ouch! Saturday morning’s gonna hurt.) DJ Dan Irons spins punk and rock ‘n’ roll while you get stupid drunk and overtip your amazing bartenders. RSVP here, or just show up.
