Uh-oh, it's a 5th Friday! All regularly scheduled events are thrown into chaos by a Friday out of time! Check your favorite club to see what's taking over from their monthlies, meanwhile, here's a couple things that I know will still be going:
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
W Hotel, 181 3rd Street x Howard
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. It's Juanita Fajita's birthday this week, with a taco bar, pinatas, and all sorts of South of the Border (tee-hee) fun. Check out my latest review of Charlie Horse at The Cinch.
9PM - close
The Cinch, 1723 Polk Street (between Clay and Washington)

Paradise All Night Disco Extravaganza at Mezzanine
