Oh man, what a crazy week this has been kids - especially when I had to write a $2000 check for an apartment deposit. So, dunno where yet, but you can bet I'll be out at one of these nights having a couple stiff drinks and thinking about just how expensive a proposition moving can be.

The Jaded Gay DJ Recommends: Charlie Horse at the Cinch
Best place to go out and have a cheap drink while being entertained by drag queen antics. Recently voted Best Drag Show in San Francisco by the SF Weekly! Music by DJ Dirty Knees and Bearzbub is more rock and new-wave oriented, but at least it won't interfere with your conversation. Check out my latest review of Charlie Horse at The Cinch.
9PM - close
1723 Polk Street (btwn Clay and Washington)
Fag Fridays at The EndUp
Reliable, not all that exciting, typical San Francisco deep house, but it's gay and you can stay until the next afternoon.
