This is one of the most diverse clubs on Halsted Street--boys can be girls and girls can be boys. About the fourth year I'd been coming here (it's almost eight now) I started working as a DJ. I like to come in and hang out with the staff and drink even on nights when I'm not working, and one night, as is often the case after a couple cocktails, I saw a really beautiful boy at the end of the bar. I went over and started talking to him and offered to buy him a drink and he accepted, and we were talking and he said that he was there with his girlfriend. I thought that was really cool--I love it when straight people come to gay bars--and I told him so, and he said, "Yeah, but I'm a lesbian." I thought he was a beautiful young guy and he turned out to be a very, very masculine w-o-m-y-n! Her girlfriend came over then, and we laughed about it a little bit and had a drink together, but needless to say it was a total mind twist. I figured that the universe was saying at that point, "Not tonight, not tonight," so I went home. On most nights, however, it would be fair to say that there are cute young guys but not cute young lesbians.
