If you're looking for a roommate in lower Manhattan or in Brooklyn west of Prospect Park, things are about to get a little easier. Roommates Wanted NYC (slogan: "no more spam, no more scams, no more brokers. FREEDOM.") just expanded its roster of monthly $5 roommate-finding mixers to two new venues: the West Village (Slaughtered Lamb Pub from 7-9pm on the second Monday of every month) and Park Slope (Bar Reis, 2nd Tuesday of every month, 7-9 pm).
That's in addition to their existing roster of roommating events:
Lenox Lounge (Upper Manhattan), 2nd Sundays 2-4pm
Creek and the Cave (Queens), 2nd Sundays 5-7pm
Alligator Lounge (Williamsburg, Bushwick, Greenpoint), 2nd Sundays 8-10pm
Soda Bar (East of Prospect Park) 3rd Sundays 5-7pm
Niagara (Lower Manhattan East), 3rd Sundays 8-10pm
