Badlands Happy Hour: 2-for-1 Cocktails

Where else can you find a dance club going off at 8 pm every day of the week? In the Castro, of course. Badlands is a dark and sweaty gay club, with a decent sized dance floor where people bump-and-grind to pop music blasting over video screens. Follow the dance moves of Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga and Madonna. The main draw to Badlands is their amazing Happy Hour special: 2-for-1 top-shelf drinks from 5 pm – 8pm! That equates to about $7 for two Kettle One Cosmos! Fuck yeah!

Keep in mind that the drinks are so stiff, you may just fall down after two rounds. In the mean time, follow the crowd and stay double fisted. It doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight or bi – everybody fits in. I went there last Friday with a gay guy friend and a group of girls. Fellow writer Monica had it right when she wrote, “You figure since there are no heteros within a mile of this place that you’re safe.” But after seeing some mad gyrating on the dance-floor, you just never know what kind of trouble you might get into at Badlands.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
