Best Gay Bar for Getting Laid - 2004
Since the advent of the Internet and Craigslist's notorious "Men Seeking Men" personal ads, the tacky art of cruising for sex -- as well as the careful art of flirting -- has become almost extinct. But if you're fond of the good old days and yearn for an evening of good tunes, good beer, and a good piece of ass, look no farther than the Castro's Detour. Accented with dim lighting, Tom of Finland blowups covering the walls, and a chain-link fence that simply begs you to lean seductively against it while holding your beer suggestively at your groin, the Detour remains the top choice to find a lad to take home for the night. What makes it a better place to find that cheap trick is that it gets a healthy cross-section of loyal locals and eager out-of-towners. So, if you're looking for a husband -- look somewhere else. But if you want a quick release, this is the spot.
