I hear, pre club happy hour, I hear awesome sliders - I say lets gooo! A friend of mine spoke highly of this place, so I was pretty excited to go. Im a sucker for cheap drinks and sliders, and when I heard that its also a club, I got even more excited. Needless to say I will not be returning here, ever. The Only 2 good things this place has was good food, and a nice decor; hence the 2 stars. The crowed was weird. It was a more "ghetto" crowed lets just say. The guys in there were absolute creeps, and the girls looked like disgusting trannies. I was buzzed and didnt enjoy my time there, that says something! A few of our friends came a bit later ( about 10:30-11) and had to wait in a huuuuge line, then after waiting for a long time, had to pay a $20 cover. What BS. I hate clubs like this. The bouncers were also the creepy douchbag types who wouldnt leave me alone. I really wanted to spill my drink in their face. Definitely not coming back, despite their delicious sliders. You are in my black book for life Infusion CrapLounge!

Ok. So, I went to Open Mic Night last night. I accept the fact that I can't accurately rate the entertainment, as it's open mic and the acts change from week to week. So I won't let that effect the star-age too much. The featured group was awesome. Fantastic even. The other acts were entertaining to say the least and you get a good mix of styles which is pretty awesome. Here's the deal with this place as it relates more to the number of stars given... the atmosphere was a nice change of pace. It's pretty cozy but very dark, so if you're like me and like to kind of "inspect" your food before you eat it: good luck. It's also, of course, one of those places where you have to be very careful about talking. You may end up being that person where you're yelling so your friends can hear you and then suddenly, the music stops and you're still yelling.... not that I was that person or anything.... haha All of that is good and fine. What is not fine and is the reason for the deduction of stars is the food. I ordered the cheese tortellini and it was delicious, don't get me wrong. But after having my fill, I thought I was going to explode. And I don't mean that "I'm so full I think I might explode." I'm talking just plain "I think I might explode" (my apologies for being gross, but you should know, vomit was quickly becoming a threat). Afterwards, I was so nauseous I actually had to leave early. not cool, World Cafe. NOT COOL. The others in my group ordered quesadillas and the eggplant fries and I'm pretty sure no one else was suffering the stomach uneasiness that I was. Maybe I just have bad luck....? Overall, I think this place would be totally rad if you're there to see a group that you're already a fan of. Nice and intimate. Open Mic was definitely impressive. I'll admit I was surprised at the amount of talent brought in here, as all of my other adventures to open mic nights in the past haven't always been so pleasant. Everyone (staff, performers and other attendees) were so friendly too and it was a pretty diverse group of people all coming together, which I love. So, all that being said, I think I will go back, but I'll be honest here, I will definitely eat before hand. The food was delicious and all, but not worth the nausea.

The Cinch is excuse the gayness way super fabulously fun for real The drag shows as said are campy, quirky, and exciting. The drinks are strong. The staff is nice and attractive. It is near my best friends house and one bus ride away from mine. Patio! So once when I was there my friends and I brought along a spangled denim dress with shoulder pads. We all tried it on laughing, and taking pictures. My friend left it on top of her purse while she was in the bathroom. A drag queen walked up took the dress, punched her number in my friends phone , and told by standers to tell the girl she needed that dress. Really? It was a great dress. I can't wait to see her in it. So I always drink too much too when I go here. I like everyone that goes.
