As if there already weren’t enough reasons to never ever leave this lovely neighborhood of Bushwick, here is one more: winter storm Nemo is slowly but surely coming at us with a promise of 3 to 30 inches of snow, aka either a lot or not. In either case, your home neighborhood just became a tiny bit more inviting than usual. And when in Bushwick… Check out 5 fabulous parties this weekend:

# 1 Rubulad (Saturday, 9PM-4:30AM, $10-20, location)

Finally! The pre-Valentine’s Day Rubulad is here! Come in a costume, wear wings, and be ready to to fall in love! Likely the craziest, the most adventurous and the most colorful party of your lifetime is coming closer to Bushwick. Only 0.8 miles away from Jefferson L, Rubulad is happening in a brand new location. Look forward to  a number of DJs, performers, musicians and hours spent on art installations. Check out our write up and photos!

#2 Bushwick Ginger Social Club @ Brooklyn Fire Proof (Saturday, 10PM, $10)

Chris, Vernon and Ian, aka our beloved party collective Bushwick Ginger Social Club, are coming to Brooklyn Fire Proof to magically turn your February awesome. A ton of squeezed ginger juice mixed with whiskey will be present. Gloominess: gone! Fun: here we are!

Vernon Caldwell mixing it up!

#3 No Room to Move @ Bossa Nova Civic Club (Saturday, 10PM)

There is not enough room in the city, and Bossa Nova Civic Club won’t provide you too much of it either. But it’s not like you won’t mind. This rather compact, new bar and night club is pure perfection when it comes to its size, feng shui and the potential for an amazing party night. See you there every night, but especially this Saturday!

Dear Ridgewood residents, we have a fantastic news for you! Vibey, old-fashioned beer hall Gottscheer will turn into a crazy dance party on Friday night. Expect girl groups, indie pop, C86, Motown, soul, synthpop and more! Oh, don’t forget to check out the Miss Gottscheer portraits on the way out!

#5 Burlesque and DJs @ Bizarre (Saturday, 9PM, free)

It is so cool that we have such a great fun place like Bizarre now in Bushwick. It is so awesome that it’s almost sinful to go longer than a week without checking it out. Definitely go this Saturday for some wild dancing with DJ, Burlesque by Lena Marquise and Absinthe cocktails.
