The worst club in Los Angeles. We got a party bus for a birthday and as soon as we got there, they kicked us out right around 11:30 or midnight because they haven't reached capacity and there was no people coming in and they didn't want to overpay the dj, bouncers, and bartenders. Super WACK, first time I've been to a club where they kick you out just because you didn't reach capacity. So at the end of our night we had to leave and still had an 2 hour extra on the party bus, so PARTY WE DID ON THE FREAKING BUS!

I'm a Christian. So how did I spend Holy Saturday when we commemorate the Passion of Our Lord this year? Dancing it up with some friends at Bootie for the first time at the DNA Lounge. I had a blast! Now the boys and I got there early because cover is cheaper ($8 vs $12) and you get a free CD. We got there a little bit after ten and got our CD's and saved our money. Inside it was pretty empty with very few people dancing so we got some drinks and just sat around talking. I always like to walk around a new club I visit in order to get the lay of the land. This place was huge by Castro standards. The main dance floor downstairs was sizeable and could be comparable to floors you find in Texas. They also had an absinthe bar that I was not particularly interested in but the menu included an interesting concoction called "Te de Bolivia" or something which was a mixed drink that had coca leaf tea! Okay as one hot Japanese-Bolivian it was my duty to imbibe but, alas, they had run out. Next time. And I'm also buying all my friends a round of that drink. The bartenders were friendly and the drinks were good. Opposite the bar was a raised pavilion that served as the stage and had the turntables. On each side of the pavilion were staircases that led to a lounge, a SECOND smaller dance floor, a taqueria (???), and some balconies that you could scope out the floor. Very cool. And a nice thing about the coat check was that they gave out free earplugs which is totally classy. Yeah. I want to be able to hear when I'm 40. Plus I'm a musician of sorts so, you know, I kind of value my hearing. As the night went on, we got down stairs and danced like no tomorrow. There were so many types of people there: groups of girlfriends out on the town, some straight guys standing off to the side too cool to dance, some gay boys dancing wild, some straight boys trying their best to keep up, young kids, older kids, older folks, very cool to see. They had these large boxes next to the support pillars that were big enough for two people to stand on comfortably. I was so gonna get up and dance since I'm the next best thing to sliced bread on the dance floor but man those gay boys can really take their time up there showing off. Next time. Definitely next time. It did get a little crowded but what can you expect in the City by the Bay. C'est la vie. If you like mash-ups and you haven't been you should totally go. I had a great time and I loved dancing to songs that I actually recognized and could sing along to. Man. It was like being young and stupid in college. But in the good way. See you there the next time! I'll be one of those really early people saving the four dollars on the cover.

Buddy o' mine had us on the guest list but we STILL weren't able to get in without paying. For some reason, the line didn't move as fast as we'd hoped and by 10:30, the cover kicked in. That was weak. That and the cash only bar with its ever-changing drink prices. Everything else about the club is everything you'd hope for in a night totally devoted to hip hop and old school rap. Distortion 2 Static reporters/employees walked around, takin' in the scene with their cameras and sporting their cool-ass tees (looking to order one myself). The mix of new and old school kept the crowd going and throwin' its hands in the air and with the video backdrop that included videos from Tribe, Digital Underground and even a bit of Rakim, it added a nice touch of nostalgia. Hip hop may be dormant, but you can always come here and enjoy the classics.

This is definitely not your father's bowling alley. Opened in the heart of Greenwich Village in 1938, Bowlmor is one of the longest continuously running bowling alleys in the country, and extremely popular despite the insanely high prices, ranging from $7.45 to $8.95 per person per game.The spectacular decor looks like it fell out of a Crayola box so, between the eye-popping visuals and never-ending crash of day-glo-colored pins, there's no way you'll ever doze off waiting for your turn. There's a full-service bar and an astonishingly eclectic menu that goes well beyond the usual greasy burger and fries fare in venues like these - how about some spinach-artichoke fondue, a chicken Caesar salad in a wrap, or grilled vegetables - eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted peppers, and red onions - with balsamic vinaigrette on a multigrain roll to keep your energy up? From 10:00pm til 3:00am on Mondays, they host Night Strike, with unlimited glow-in-the-dark games, a live DJ, and shoe rental for $20. No doubt your head will be throbbing well into Tuesday afternoon.
