i love your bar reviews. personally i enjoy amerika and other note worthy gay clubs because that si where you here "the" best dance music for some reason. maybe napolean is still a fence sitter, but i am obviously not and want to enjoy the night to the fullest.
Is a "fence sitter" the same as being "undecided"?
I've made my decision and I prefer chicas, but I've worked at a museum and I've lived in LA, so "mixed" doesn't bother me at all. As long as it truly is "mixed".
I went to a birthday party for an amigo of an amiga at the side club to Crobar. It was a Friday night, but we were on the guest list, so there was no cover. Bueno.
I had a cute little amiga mia in tow who happened to be wearing boots up to her knees, MID-knees... yum. They were even semi-winged at the top like she was an animated super hero or something. She knew that I like those boots from another time that she wore them and I think she wore them just for me. (I loved her for that.)
So the outside area was open and it was pretty darn gay, pero bueno. Then I found out that Friday is gay night there (not "mixed"), but we would be in the VIP section, so I probably wouldn't need that second stick of Blistex that I had left at home. Bueno.
The place filled up with dudes. LOTS of dudes, but most seemed like typical Argie guys (only slightly cleaner) and hardly any fems among them. To me it looked like a straight club that was seriously lacking in female representation.
I went to the bathroom and didn't even have to hookup to get a stall. And the floor wasn't even sticky yet. Todo bien. Back in the VIP section my Ecuadorean amigo lamented that the music was really good, but that there were no girls. I explained that the music was good, because gays like good music. He silently counted the days until his French girlfriend was moving back to Argentina. (~17 at that point.)
Once they opened up the VIP section and swaths of over-cologned, lecherous manhunters filled up the place, it was time to go. If I'm going to have to squeeze through people to get another drink, I prefer to do it against chicas who themselves have squeezed their curves into stretch jeans & itty-bitty tops. Not extras from the first season of "Queer as Folk".
unfortunately my dear naploean and i do not agree on this sugar bar. if your into the trekker body odor and cheap beer drinking scene or up for some low quality party favors on the upper deck than it is for you. not me i say! i want the buzz and the vibe and only the club scene provides for that. kim and novaaks is great early on spot for some casual bumps and then off to the fair i say.
I love that we're already on a "my dear" basis. I feel pretty.
I simply said that Sugar has the best music in town and cheapest drinks in the neighborhood. It falls under the "dive" category much more than Kim y Novak... which I didn't think "got going" until 2:30am, but I've heard definitely has a "mixed" crowd. And as for the "casual bumps", I'm just a drinker. And a fairly responsible one at that.
austgirl the best advice is to meet up with the right mix I party mix ) and venture out to private residences for a real party. holy judy garland i went to a private party at an estancia in pilar that rivaled any i had been too in the hollywood hills. what a terrifc place this buenos aires!
TRANSLATION: The best advice is to know filthy rich people and go to their parties.
NAPOLEON'S RESPONSE: I agree. (Was there ever even a question?)
N's Response Part II: I don't know if I've ever said "Holy Judy Garland" before. Not just in "mixed" company, but PERIOD!
last notey: best to not rely too much on other psoters opines and go lookey for yourself. it is out there and fabulous!
I agree with this notey
. It is best to lookey
for yourself. And although I rarely use the word "fabulous", in case you would like to here, the Spanish translation is "fabuloso".
I have been to many, many boliches ONCE. (The english word for "one time", not the Spanish word for "eleven" or porteño for "the garment district".) In fact, this past Friday I even ventured to a "goth club" and took these pictures of some of the attendees.
These pictures were not taken at Carnal, or Bangalore, or Sugar, or Milíon, or Rumi, or... but at "REQUIEM"... oooohhhh... AR$15 to get in and that includes a drink. And if you like "goth music", which can be described as '80s club electronica with prominent synthesizers and semi-droning voices like Joy Division, Depeche Mode, and the like, then you'll LOVE this "goth music". (I'd heard this music before back in the '80s, but back then we called it "music".)
I venture out. I'm here to help. I'm an International Problem Solver just trying to make the transition to this world a little easier.
