Every since I returned to Vegas' Circus Circus after many years past my childhood experiences, I realized - Carnivals and Circuses may SEEM fun as a child but they are oddly sad and depressing as an adult. Add Alcohol to the mix and you have a recipe for therapy. I came here for the Thrillist 4th Anniversary bash so I don't really know what it's like on a normal night, but it seem fine since I wasn't paying for any of my drinks. The DJ was awesome, but again, not sure if that was Carnival or Thrillist. The games are a buck and you can win weird things like Goldfish. Big Cons included walking up a zillion flight of stairs and being turned away at the coat check when I was the next person ... after waiting 20 minutes telling me they couldn't accommodate any more coats? The place wasn't even packed? What the hell.. This place definitely has a wow factor initially but like any novelty, wears off when you are run into a scary woman clown in the bathroom.

Was expecting beaucoup de 'tude on my little weekend of clubbing in NY. But my friend and I (she's from Brussels, I'm from SF) avoided the queue, used a mixture of French, Flemmish, and English to charm the bouncer. He was a cordial gentleman, the music was fantastic, and the crowd was eclectic (locals, Euros, etc) and there was lots of good mingling. Also, a nice patio to cool off between rounds of dancing. Drinks were pricey, but not more so than other places in the Meatpacking. I'll so come back next time I'm in town.

I'm totally falling for the Red House Lounge. Went with a group of girlfriends last night and it was like we were just hanging out at a friend's house because it felt so comfortable. The mini deer heads on the wall crack me up. Bloody Mary was tasty with the right amount of spice while the chili-cheese burger, though a little too well done for my preference, was nice and nasty. The fries were amazing! There is no cocktail waitress, at least inside, so don't be shy, belly on up to the bar. The bartenders were all cute and friendly. We ended up sticking around for several hours and I think I've convinced my friends, who were all there for the first time, that we should hang at the Red House more often. edit-went to Red House last night and they changed their menu again-no more burgers-very dissapointing. Had a goat cheese panini-very greasy. The fries seemed different too :( Love their micheladas but learned that I need to request bloody mary mix in order for them to make them to my liking.
