Dear Lime, When I first walked in, I thought I was in a different time zone! Was it 11 p.m.? Uhhhh no, way too bright outside. And then I thought, am I at a Twilight audition? Man, a lot of people there look like Edward! I've been Team Edward since the first Twilight movie came out and now after coming here, you guys have made me Team (gay) Edward! When the guy at the front said we had to wait 2 hours, we were definitely bummed...but that's just because we didn't have our mimosas yet! At least the wait gave us enough time to look for an ATM, get lost for half an hour, go to Safeway, actually find an ATM, and get our first round of mimosas! How come the "bottomless" part is only once you're seated at the table and not at the bar? (Refills are $2 at the bar, I think.) I guess I can forgive you for that since you kept us entertained with a dance show on top of the bar. Our (little more than) 2 hour wait is finally up and we get seated and our waiter is none other than the fabulous gay guy that was dancing on the bar just moments before. Did you guys plan that? Instead of having to refill our mimosas every 5 minutes, he just brings us a pitcher and we're all set! (Just refill it in about 20 minutes.) We all order and eat our food blah blah blah. Yes, your food is great, but come on, do people really come here for the food? One of your patrons (an Edward look-alike, of course) decided to give one of my bffs a lapdance for her bday. So we hang out with him and the 2 other Edwards assuming, of course, that they were all gay. Well apparently, they weren't. I even came out and blatantly stated, "Oh, we thought you guys were gay!" Sorry, dudes...we all have boyfriends. Ugh this is getting really long so I just want to say THANK YOU to one of your workers that found my iPhone! Looking around on the floor for it while everything was spinning (still drunk, obviously) was not exactly easy. xoxo, Mehgan

I'm no connoisseur of SF night clubs, but I went to Cat Club recently on a Thursday night and liked it. My friend was low on cash, so we showed up before 9:30 to avoid the cover. The place was dead for the next hour or so, and we sat quietly in the corner, chatting and catching up while we watched 2 or 3 awkward people dancing by themselves. By the time 11pm rolled around, the crowd started trickling in and the place really got going. We began dancing, switching it up between the two different dance rooms to mix things up. Around midnight it was so crowded you could barely move, but once 1am rolled around it had slowed down enough that you didn't have to worry about elbowing someone in the face while you're dancing. They have a neat little alley way thing so you don't have to exit to go smoke a cigarette, and the staff was friendly. The manager actually came up and offered us shots!

I'm not a big club-going kind of guy, but I went to Vanguard last weekend. Hernan Cattaneo and David Guetta were spinning. The music was amazing (if you like house) and it was a fun time overall. The venue was decent and served it's purpose. For starters, main room is huge and the ceiling is very high. I like that. No claustrophobia here. The outside area is sprawling and easily accommodates those who want to cool off/escape the thumping bass/smoke. Parking was a cinch next door at $10, and they allow you to park your own car. (I am anti-valet) What I didn't like about the place was the expensive drinks served in little tiny plastic cups. On top of that, they include the gratiuty on the charge slip. That's more sneaky than convenient. I am comfortable with my math, but don't try to con me into adding on an "add'l gratuity".
