Mixed Change is a monthly mixtape exchange party and a great way to find new music and meet new people on the cheap. The concept here is simple and fun: make a mix using the provided theme, this monthâ€™s being b-sides, bring it to the party, and exchange it for someone elseâ€™s mix. With cheap drink specials, free admission, and a DJ set by Cassetenova, how can you pass this one up on a Tuesday? For din-din, check out Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant. Serving up sandwiches, omelletes, and baked goods for breakfast and lunch, for dinner expect the likes of Pan Seared Halibut with sweet corn succotash, herb roasted tomatoes, and summer squash ($19). Named after the poet Paul Verlaine, the bar offers an asian food and drink menu. While you canâ€™t order the absinthe that probably helped kill the poet, you can order drinks like the El Chupacabra, which is better tasting with a kick of its own. If you like pickles, Gussâ€™ Pickles has been around since 1910, itâ€™s a landmark spot, and still makes a great pickle.
