Here's hoping everybody has a lazy post-Thanksgiving Friday - forget about the shopping, just lay around and reflect on the things you have to be thankful for, and then go out and celebrate them on Friday night!
Cosmic Gypsy Happy Hour with DJ Mak at the W Hotel
Get your lounge groove on with DJ Mak in this swank downtown hotel bar.

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.
