WEEKEND PICKS
Event Preview: When In Robe at Body By Brooklyn

A SPA dance party is probably the closest thing you can get to heaven on Earth, and only Body By Brooklyn makes it possible. This Sunday night, the When In Robe: Brooklyn SPA Dance Party returns, this time with Plastic Plates and Nick Hook joining resident DJ, Subset, known far and wide for bashing the BASSment on Saturday nights at Webster Hall.

So what do you do at a SPA dance party? You show up, grab a glass of champagne, a locker key, and a robe, and shimmy your bathing suit wearing butt up to the luxury spa area-turned nightclub. Everything from hot tubs and strobe lights to steam rooms and a full bar is at your disposal, not to mention free food and great music played by a stacked lineup of popular DJs.

HAPPENINGS
ABSOLUT Lunch Break!

Ok, free things are lucky, but we said this is the the luckiest 13th, and here's why: The Jillionaire and Walshy Fire will be DJ-ing the event.

The lunch party is free, however, if you can, take those couple of bucks you would'a spent on lunch and donate them to the on-site reps of the Food Bank for NYC--just $1 will feed five New Yorkers in need.

Tomorrow, join us for lunch and dancing, and take back a great story to your office (or class). Remember to RSVP, since that's the only way to reveal the location!!

Interview with Girl Walk's Anne Marsen

You know the feeling. The one - right after your first kiss, or after landing the dream job, that makes you feel like you could burst out in professional dance moves to your own theme song, walking home down a busy city block. You never do it, because our inhibitions quell that burst of complete happiness out of fear of what some stranger might think, but imagine having the cahonas to do it. Enter Girl Walk// All Day- an epic music video (movie length), that follows three dancers as they explore NYC. After the second screening of Girl Walk, Joonbug was able to snag Anne Marsen (who plays The Girl) for a Skype chat.

LIFESTYLE
It's Flash Mob Time!

Shoppers better beware on Saturday December 17th at 2pm if they are in Washington Square Park. For those caught unaware, prepare for a show as spontaneous dance breaks out in the park. NYC Dance Arts is having a flash mob so make sure you don't miss it! You all might remember Modern Family's Mitchell breaking it down for Cam during a flash mob...so if you don't understand the concept check out the video below. Check out this webpage to take dance classes and participate in future flash mobs!

GET THE PARTY STARTED
Lexicon...
'Champagne Showers' -LMFAO f/ Natalia Kills

What was once the famed East Side den, Branch, is now Lexicon. Fellow Joonbugsters may remember our older siblings speaking of it on Sunday mornings over coffee, macaroons and even raspier voices. Happily, we can do the same for the next generation. And when I came here (as a last resort, mind you) it was well worth it. Totally beat the lines at Hudson Terrace, and gave the night that extra, 'UMPH!'.

The party that Lexicon provides is similar to what Snooki would like from her one Jersey Shore fav, Karma. Basically- gonna fist pump till my arm falls off!

SHM's Sebastien Ingrosso at Webster Hall this Saturday!

Its members may be newly collaborated with each other (they just released their first single "One" on May 26 this past year), but Swedish House Mafia's Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, and Axwell are internationally known on the house DJ circuit. The group will not be all together at Webster together this Saturday, but New Yorkers are welcome to rage to DJ sets by internationally famed Sebastian Ingrosso, who produced MGMT's "Kids." He has also collaborated with house 'veterans' (so to speak) like Royksopp, David Guetta, Felix, and Mike Snow, so you know this party is going to be one you don't want to miss. You can grab tickets in advance for just $40 - no drink specials, just abnormally great beats to pound the thought of Valentine's Day out of your head. Perfect.

Scissor Sisters and Lauren Flax Spin in Space Tonight

Amazing DJ sets and dancing in an enormous space that feels as though you've jumped straight out of a rocketship and settled in gravity-less land? Without a space suit, much less? Sounds trippy and unreal, which is what this event will likely turn out to be. The Fader is hosting tonight's One Step Beyond party in The Rose Center of the American Museum of Natural History, featuring the garage-electro Scissor Sisters and distinguished remixer Lauren Flax and the Activaire DJs. The whole party-in-a-museum-without-drinks thing may turn some people off, but be assured, partying in the dark beneath a bunch of replicate planets to great house is bound to be more fun than you think...and definitely more fun than staring at your reflection in your mug at a dreary bar. Tickets are only $25 - you can buy them in advance here.

American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West @ 79th St., (212) 769-5100
