Club Candids

Booze Makes It Better

If getting obliterated only two nights a week just isn't enough to fill whatever emotional void you've got going on, Club Candids has found the perfect place to make an early-week pit stop to fill your empty vessel with the glorious numbing power of booze. And you don't have to do it alone, because The Bikini Lounge has become the place to be on Tuesday nights for the downtown indie and slightly punky crowd. With stiff drinks and a weekly mix of DJs, the initial evening of lounging and bitching about work inevitably curls into heavy mingling and unsuccessful makeout attempts.

On Tuesday, February 13, the place was busy, but not packed the way it usually is. Perhaps we can blame the Valentine's Day massacre of bank accounts for the low turnout. Regardless, there were plenty of young and casual kids who didn't mind revealing their weekday drinking to the world by letting us paste their mugs online. So if you find yourself hungry on a Tuesday for a little pick-me-up, hit Bikini for strong drinks and late-night chatting. But be warned, it's an activity that may just kick you down when you have to wake up on Wednesday.
