Not a fan of mojitos, huh? Well, according to The Brookynite (516 Brooklyn), NO-jito, no problem. On Friday, July 11, the popular dive bar is bringing their creation The Southtown Fizz to its lineup for the night. The cocktail uses a combo of gin, lime, mint and a few other ingredients to diverge from the traditional mojito. Viva Tacoland (103 W Grayson) also joins the festivities with their take on the classic minty cocktail for only $5 a pop.

On Saturday, July 12, 5 p.m., Missions Untapped (8123 Broadway) lets the folks behind Busted Sandal Brewing Co. take over their taps for one night only. For a standard price, patrons will be able to fill up on unlimited pours from Busted Sandal for two hours. Featured brews include the 210 ale, El Robusto porter, Fire Pit Wit and more.
