      Great place to meet your friends for a night out
      This place has been around forever, and is always a fun place to catch up with your friends. I can remember dancing to Grace Jones "Slave to the Rhythm"as it was being projected on the screen, and Billy Smith was spinning records. YES, I said RECORDS... it was the late 80's after all!! Blah ha ha

      BAD = Big Ass Drinks
      Long Island Iced Tea, Melon Balls, and other tacky hooch served in mason jars. Enough said. It's full of kitsch and might be one of the last remaining original video bars still in operation. It's kind of dirty, very campy, retro and a lot of fun. Just don't take it too seriously and accept it for what it is...a classic gay dive. My boyfriend and I met here on a Big Ass Drink (Monday) night almost 10 years ago.

      Oh Yes!!
      This is a basic gag bar, but the outdoor patio in summer is really fun. It's very friendly and casual. The fact that a cute bartender gave md his number on a 5 I got back in change may influence the view of this place, but it's worth a visit. Be sure and hang out on the patio and watch the eye candy passing bye.

      total dive bar, love it.
      if you lie the hustle and bussle, but also enjoy a laid back atmosphere where you can drunk-people-watch, go hear. it's kind of knitty-gritty, however tha't the charm of buffalo. theres something about the grit you just love... great place to talk to random strangers and make new friends. not a stuck-up crowd. GO TO BIG-ASS DRINK NIGHTS ON MONDAYS AND THURSDAY, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
