frisky and cruisy

Go on weekends or special promotional events when there is a crowd. Avoid during the week usually pretty quiet.

Mixed Feelings But Sexy PLace

I LOVE bars with active patios or back rooms. This place have an "area" outside that get's crowded and gross with smokers. Things DO go on, but it's certainly not as easy to maneuver as one would hope. Best thing is to meet someone inside and bring him out for a show. Sometimes guys are just too reticent for their own good and I always like to get the party started by being sleazy fun.

Leather and the Badboy

If you're feeling a bit....lets say "revved up"....and you're into leather and the sweatier side of life definitely give this place a visit. Sexy, bearded guys (boys and men), shirtless sometimes and even a backroom (really an outdoor section). A great pickup place. Enough said. The drinks are strong and the bartenders friendly and they have all the events and nights that get the boys to take their shirts off! And did I mention go-go boys?! My favorite is a bearded furry little muscle bear that has a great smile and winning personality - always fun to give him a tip!

Better luck next time?

Was there on a Tuesday. Not so great. Saw online reviews and comments that indicated a fetish flavor to the place (leather-Levis-tattoos and all) so I put on my tightest, bulgiest gray ballet tights with high leather boots and leather vest and went in. There were about a dozen guys in the place. No fetish at all. Was completely ignored. On this upper deck in the rear (which I think is the patio, but I'm not sure since I didn't really go all the way to the back of the place to look for another door) there was a group of 4 guys "enjoying themselves", and there were a few other guys leering at me but were otherwise practically motionless. They have a couple of restrooms that are positioned somewhat open to the main floors where guys can station themselves for cruising, I suppose. Most of the other customers were very old and unkempt. I thought they were homeless at first. (If you're going to a cruise bar, you should at least shower, comb your hair and not be wearing soiled work clothes from your telephone linesman job.) I ordered a drink and hung out by the pool table watching the porn they have on all the TV's (which I liked). But, no one approached me. No one spoke. There were two youngish, clean looking guys at the bar. But, they never even looked up from their cell phones the entire time I was there. When someone enters a nearly empty bar, most of the patrons would look up momentarily at least being curious about the motion seen from the corner of their eye. But, these guys at the bar were oblivious to everything around them. When I left I was panhandled by two homeless people right at the front door - almost inside the entry way, in fact. Then, as I crossed the little side street a super drunk guy with a backpack went ape shit over my ass and package in tights. He groped my balls and ass right there on the street and begged me to go up this alley next to the bar and suck dicks. He was so drunk that he could hardly walk. This is the reaction I was hoping for INSIDE the bar, and by someone who wasn't slurring their speech. Overall, I liked the funky, kind-of-dangerous, underground feel of the place and I want to try again on a busier night. I'm interested in tight jeans/spandex - both exhibiting and watching/groping.
