BEA: After-Hours

I did this post last year and when I mentioned doing it again, a lot of you were on board, so I'm going for it! Basically, there are a tooooon of events surrounding BEA each year, but what often gets neglected is the public, free events that you don't need a BEA badge for. It gives you all the extra options to find people if you don't go to parties (or to BEA), but want to hang out with people! Plus, the Javitz can be crazy, so these extra events can be really helpful. I'm also including the closest/likely most convenient subway stop for each.
