Really, the only place to get royally fucked up on Thursday nights is at Aunt Charlie’s Lounge where DJ Bus Station John’s weekly worship service, “Tubesteak Connection,” throws down ultra-rare ’70s and ’80s disco and alterna-beats in the bowels of the Tenderloin.
Whether posing at the bar, shaking ass on the dance floor, or jonesing in line for the single-occupancy bathroom, you might want to get there early -- John’s night gets crowded right-quick. Arriving sooner rather than fashionably late might help you take advantage of the abnormally cheap booze, catch possible Bambi Lake (http://bestof.sfweekly.com/bestof/section.php?year=2005§ion=24953) sightings, and enjoy the brief calm before the greasy gay hipster storm rains down come midnight. ($3, 9 p.m. – 2 a.m.)
If risking your precious life in the ninth circle of the Tenderloin isn’t your idea of fun (snob), then you might want to check out Club Six’s reggae-infused “Give Thankz” -- that is, before the places bids us adieu, mon. ($5, 9 p.m.-2 a.m.) --Brock Keeling (photo courtesy Julica da Costa via Wikipedia Commons)
