These over-the-top weekly spectacles are ones you need to see to believe. Eye opening acts like live body piercers and body-modifiers open Slate's new weekly Freak Friday party during happy hour from 6:30pm - 8:30pm beginning on January 4th. Fire breathers, voluptuous vixens and big boys in spandex become the main attraction on stage starting at 9:30pm. If your eyes roam, you'll see couples tying each other up in the corners or exhibitionists covering one another in body paint. No, this is not a twisted dream; this is you getting your freak on at Slate. Cirque Saturdays will kick off at Slate in the new year beginning at 10pm on January 5th. This one-of-a-kind, in-your-face weekly party will feature circus jugglers, stilt walkers, illusionists, glow in the dark face painters, aerialists, hula-hoopers, magicians and more. Expect the unexpected at this new weekly interactive event combining electrifying live music with vaudeville-like acts. http://www.slate-ny.com/.
