MJQ is pretty legendary with my friends in college (I just graduated) but I never made it there until a few weeks ago. Something about the idea of throngs of sweaty, dirty people spasming to the beat of repetitive music and a strobelight while a story or two underground didn't really appeal to me. Go figure. But I finally went, and what do you know: I really enjoyed it! Not because it wasn't what I just described, because it totally was. MJQ is a crazy all-night dance party with hit-or-miss music, dirty environs, no opportunity for a bathroom break (at least not one I'd risk) and many opportunities to get up-close-and-personal with strange-smelling strangers, but somehow it all the shadiness comes together to make for an awesome experience. Ten minutes into my first visit I wanted out immediately, but once I'd downed a beer or two I was going crazy on the dance floor and could suddenly appreciate what makes MJQ such a local institution. So now I can say without reservations that if you want an insane night of dancing, people-watching, (and some people-touching) and don't mind getting a little dirty, sweaty, or having your hair smell like PBR and cigarettes for DAYS after (no joke), then MJQ is the place for you. Trust me, you won't regret it.

I have recently started enjoying Asian foods like sushi (yum!). I went here, with no expectations and left filled and delighted. Their fish selection is impressive and prices are reasonable. If you want some of the best Japanese/Asian fusion food in town, check out Genki!
