Top 5 "Ladies Nights"
Your credit card needs some restMarch 28, 2008
Wednesday is "Ladies Night" from 8 p.m.-11 p.m., ladies drink FREE! Stampede is a brash, punch-drunk novelty, just like the contemporary Country music it’s been spinning over the last 16 years. Urban cowboys may roll their eyes when the DJ drops the latest Top 40 R&B hit, but the club welcomes all, even offering dance classes for the uninitiated. If the two-step and boot scoot boogie-ing isn’t your thing, there’s a serviceable menu of bar food, and there are six different bars throughout to be found throughout the club, in case you just want to make it all go away.
Thursday is "Ladies Night" from 7 p.m.-11 p.m., ladies drink FREE! The Wild West lives on - sort of - in this "no balls, no glory" south Lakewood tavern. Don't let its strip mall appearance fool you from the outside; it's huge once you're through the door, with 9,000 square feet of pool tables, a dance floor and bar space to keep your evening lively. Ask the managers and they'll describe it like it is: loud, dingy, dark and kinda trashy. Cover bands take over the stage on weekends, and local acts of all genres have their turn on school nights. You'll never have trouble finding a TV to sip your beer by - they have over 40 screens.
Tuesday is "Ladies Night" from 10 p.m.-2 a.m., with $1 PBR, $2 wells, wine, and domestic drafts. This is the best venue for live music on Capitol Hill, hand’s down. Bender’s books the hottest up-and-coming bands in the country—rock, punk, country, and metal—and if there is not a band on stage you are likely to find a DJ, a troop of burlesque dancers or a barfly drunkenly assailing “Stand By Your Man,” to the hoots of a hundred karaoke enthusiasts. The crowd is a mix of hipsters and punkers, and so, for that matter, is the staff. There is never a cover for the main room, and there is a big patio for smokers. When you get there, say "Hi" to Luke, master bartender.
Thursday night is "Ladies Night" from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. with $1 wells and domestics. Remember when Aunt Jane got completely smashed and insisted on singing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” at your niece’s wedding reception? That was so not cool. Prevent further embarrassment by treating Auntie Jane to regular Tuesday night karaoke sessions at Finn McCool’s. The entire family will thank you. While you’re there, order up some sliders while you play pool, foosball or beer pong, or just test the effectiveness of your ADD medication against the 11 hi-def TVs.
