Urgh, this jaded gay DJ has a cold coming on, so it may be a weekend in front of the Xbox with hot tea and a cold meds, but there are some nifty things you should definitely check out:
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. 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 Pink
No deets on this week's event, but at least one reader wasn't too happy with his visit there last week.

Cover "TBA" (okay, so what's up with that?)
Pink, 2526 16th Street x South Van Ness
