The Next Party

Mister Sunday

us-0608-598513-333445-back**We’re using a new entrance to the party starting September 14. It’s at 241 37th Street, just across from Costco. Otherwise, it’s all the same! On with the show.**

Mister Sunday happens every Sunday through October in a courtyard between two beautiful buildings in Industry City, a complex of old warehouses at the foot of Sunset Park in Brooklyn. There are birch trees, garden lights strung from end to end, plenty of tables and chairs, indoor bathrooms and a padded dancefloor.

Country Boys serve tacos and huaraches; Sottocasa serves coal-oven pizza; and our bar has sangria, limonata, Mexican Coke, and a bunch of Brooklyn-brewed beers. The party is all ages; you can bring your dog; and Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter play records from the beginning of the night to the end.

Our hours are from 3pm to 9pm, and it costs $15. (We sell a limited number of $10 advance tickets for each party.) You can buy advance tickets here

We have some very important rules for our dancefloor. Here’s the scoop:

A FEW RULES FOR OUR DANCEFLOOR:

1. Please don’t take photos.
2. Please don’t smoke.
3. Please don’t text or make calls or any of that stuff.

You can do all these things off of the dancefloor, but when you’re inside the speakers, get down.

Finally, here are directions and some answers to other questions you might have:

If you want to use Google Maps to get directions, the closest address to our entrance is 241 37th Street, Brooklyn. The N, R and D trains stop at 36th Street, two blocks from the party. Both the N and D run express, even on the weekend. It takes less than ten minutes to get here from Atlantic Terminal on both of those trains. The R train runs local and connects with the F and G at 4th Ave and 9th. If you’re riding a bike, the easiest, safest way is to use 5th Avenue. Once you get to 36th Street, just go down the hill, and you’re a short coast away.

OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SUNDAYS

Kids under 18 go free with as long as they’re accompanied by a grown-up, and dogs are welcome as long as they’re on a leash. We take credit cards at the bar. The closest ATM is in the deli on the corner of 3rd Ave and 36th Street. No outside drinks are allowed, but fear not: we have beer, sangria, water, and lemonade. In order to drink beer and sangria, you’ll need a wristband. You’ll be given a wristband at the door as long as your ID says you’re of age.

The music ends at 9pm, and we close the space a little later, so if you want to hang and have a drink after the tunes, you can. Before you leave, please throw all your trash and recycling in the appropriate bins so the neighbors’ front stoops aren’t junked up, and on your way home, keep your voices low so that the folks in the neighborhood can have a little peace and quiet. They’re really nice for having us around, and we want to stay in their good graces so we can keep bringing you Mister Sunday.

Finally, have an awesome time.

Mister Sunday Returns To London

MSN_2014_Nov9_London-V2AAfter a long, hot summer of outdoor parties in Brooklyn, Misters Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter return to London for a second edition of Mister Sunday at Oval Space. The boys will play tunes to get you warmed up while you play ping pong and snack on food from local purveyors; we’ll draw the curtains to let sun stream on to the dancefloor; and we’ll set up the merch stand for tee shirts and records, just like we do in Brooklyn.

Black Atlantic, who are our on-the-ground partners in London, have the full details. We hope to see you there.

Misterburg in Central Park

msn_smorg_cp_finalWe’re teaming up with our friends over at Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg to throw a party in Central Park. On Friday evening, September 19, from 5pm to 9pm at SummerStage, we’ll set up the big, blue soundsysterm, drop Eamon and Justin into the DJ booth, and the Flea will roll in a veritable, uh, smorgasbord of excellent food.

Among the food purveyors are Ramen BurgerEl Super Tostadas, and Mile End. Plus Brooklyn Soda Works (our favorite) will be supplying non-boozey beverages, and the Brooklyn Flea folks will run a trusty beer and wine bar. Best part about this one? It’s free.

If you haven’t been there before, Central Park SummerStage is relatively close to the 5th Avenue and 72nd Street entrance of the park. Here’s a map.

Whether in Central Park or Industry City, we’ll see you on the dancefloor soon.

The Mister Rules

10This is Mister Saturday Night. Welcome. These are the rules of the house.

1. First and foremost, enjoy yourself.

2. At the door, keep in mind that the cover is really the cover. Everyone likes a deal, but throwing parties has its costs, and we need your help to make it happen. If you’re supposed to be on the guestlist but you’re not, don’t give the doorman a hard time. He’s heard a lot of stories, and though yours might be true, the only thing he has to go on is what’s in front of him. (Truth be told, we don’t often have a guestlist anyhow.)

3. Please don’t bring your own drinks into the party. Drinks at the bar are cheap anyway.

4. Be nice to everyone. Obviously. Tip well. Say excuse me if you bump into someone.

5. If someone’s making you feel uncomfortable in any way, please let someone who’s working know. We will nip it in the bud.

6. Please don’t use cameras and phones on the dancefloor, and leave bulky handbags at home or, when it’s cold outside and we have it, in coat check. We ask that you not use cameras and phones because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment.

7. Please smoke outside. (And when we’re outdoors, please smoke off of the dancefloor.)

8. Our DJ booth sits right next to the dancefloor. If you lean on it, run into it, or bump it, records will start skipping. Please be careful of it.

9. When DJs are in the booth, it may not always look like it, but they’re working. Even if they’re not actively mixing, they’re surveying the dancefloor, thinking about what to play next, and trying to make sure that the music stays just right. It’s okay to ask them what song they’re playing, but beyond that, please save conversations for when they’re out of the booth.

10. The DJs at the Mister have a particular musical vision. Please don’t make requests.

11. Finally, we realize that, as you’re cool enough to take the time to read through our list of rules, you’re likely on the same page as us already. We’re an open door kind of party, though, and sometimes there are new people who aren’t bad folks but don’t yet understand what the Mister is all about. If you feel like someone doesn’t know the scoop, it’s okay to tell them – in a nice way, of course. This party is yours, and if you can help bring newcomers into the fold of what we’re doing, it’ll make things even better than they already are. If you’re not comfortable talking to someone directly, that’s cool, too. Just tell a security guard, or really any staff member, and they can steer people in the right direction.

Thanks for reading. We’re glad you’re with us. We hope you enjoy yourself.
