Looking pretty quiet this weekend (except for some fun stuff on Sunday, see the Upcoming Events page) as everybody and their brother, sister, and significant other is packing it up to head out to that thing they do in the desert every year, you know, where they burn that man. So kick back and relax, enjoy the peace and quiet if you're not going, and if you are, throw a shrimp on the barbie for me, will ya?
Weeklies and Bar Nights
Cosmic Gypsy Happy Hour with DJ Mak at the W Hotel
Get your lounge groove on with DJ Mak in this swank hotel bar.
6PM - 8PM

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
The Cinch, 1723 Polk Street (between 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.
10PM - 6AM, and then Ascension starts up
The End UP, 6th x Harrison
