    I love the Heretic,... was there on friday night!

    Usually Fridays are great there, later in the evening. Take your shirt off and dance with hot guys!

    Blake's on the Park is fun. It is a nice crowd, and the staff is awesome. I heard the Jungle has gotten really fun on Friday nights.

    I say, go to as many different bars as possible. They all have a different vibe to them. I haven't been to the Eagle since before it got raided. icon_eek.gif

    I went to Blakes this past Friday night as well. It was very crowded, but I really, really liked the crowd. It wasn't really a dance place, it was a more "standing around drinking and be seen" place. I met a guy there with whom I am obsessed. I friended him on Facebook because I would like to get to know him better, but it is unlikely to happen.

    Most of the time the guys are pretty cliquey there.

    Blake's is fun when you're with a group of friends. The Heretic is great for dancing. I'd suggest checking out Cockpit. It's a relaxed crowd and the guys are nice.

    I went to Heretic this past Friday with a friend of mine, then went to Jungle on Saturday night. They are right across the street from each other.
    Heretic is small, but seems to have a friendly atmosphere. You’ll find a slice of every aspect of the gay community there: men dressed as women, the only-underwear wearing twinks (Waifers as my friend and I like to call them), muscle guys, normal joes, S&M guys, and anyone else in-between. The drinks seemed reasonably priced, and one of the bartenders is really good—we gave him our drink order once, and he remembered it the entire night! Once the crowd gets going, the dance floor is packed, so if you like the standard shirtless dancing, you’ll enjoy it!

    Jungle is pretty cool...much bigger and a larger crowd than Heretic, though you’ll probably see the same people in both since they are across the street from each other. We went on Saturday night and for some reason, there was a $25 cover! Now, in my opinion, it was worth it...the DJ was awesome, lots of dancing, huge crowd. Getting to the bathroom is a bit of a pain (all those guys with bladders the size of seven years olds drinking non-stop...oh the agony of long lines...). If the cover sounds a bit daunting, just check out the events before heading there. I think there was a special event going on, which is why it was $25. Otherwise, it’s just $5 or $10. I think Heretic’s cover is about the same.

    For eating purposes, there are a lot of places in Midtown that are friendly and have great food! Do some exploring! Let me know how you like those places if you choose to go!

    Hey, I was there on Friday night too! I don't remember seeing you though! Wait, actually, I may have...I'm trying to muddle through the drunken blur of shirtless dancing... icon_smile.gif

    Blake's - your generic, run of the mill gay bar, where people stand and (try to) look nice/fuckable

    Jungle - tends to be younger, college-aged crowd; usually empty though unless you go on certain days

    Burkhart's - mixed crowd, drag shows are pretty comical (different from your typical strutting trannies), decent outdoor area

    Heretic - dancing, but at times it tends to attract a slightly older/leather/bearish crowd

    Eagle - leather/bear paradise

    Am I missing anything?

    I hope you have a strong tolerance for pretentiousness!

    No. That pretty much sums it up. Also, Atlanta=6s who think they're 10s looking for 11s. Come to think of it, that's the gay world in general.
