Though it's lost some of its luster over the years, The Box still delivers a good time with unexpected highlights (the naughty yet exciting intermittent stage performances that will impress, delight, or disgust, depending on your disposition, every time) to an evening out. I've only been during the week and have always enjoyed it here. If you haven't gone, I suggest going at least once - it's definitely worth the unique burlesque-lounge experience you'll most surely have!

On the first Saturday of the month the Bordello features Club Satisfaction. I've seen some really good bands and have heard some great DJ's from all over the world on this night. Host DJ Tony The Tyger spins the best 60's dance songs ever! Valet parking is optional and you may have to walk a little to avoid the cost. Good bartenders and courteous staff help make the Bordello an enjoyable visit.

I sort of loved the Buddha. I mean, I was a little disappointed that you're not allowed to sit in his lap and/or rub his belly, but I guess that's just mid-town for you. Anyway, Tao is definitely fun, swanky, etc. The food is quite good (notice I didn't say delicious...and for $26 salmon, I think it should be delicious), but my chief complaint is that the clientele is mostly comprised of douchebags. Standing at the bar, this guy was sitting in one of the low love seats next to me and had his legs crossed. His top leg was jutting out into the aisle, thus jabbing me approximately every 32 seconds. And, of course, he never once apologized. Later, I had to ask the guy at the table beside us to move his chair half the distance to his table (so about 1.5 feet) so I could get out. Aside from rampant douchebaggery, however, Tao is a good choice for a little swank and a lot of Buddha.
