Red C Lounge's no-frills show posters promise two things: chest-pounding beats and plenty of drinks. DJs deliver those beats in a variety of styles, delving into the jazz-influenced rhythms of deep house on Tuesdays or sampling the long-forgotten hooks of obscure soul or jazz on Rare Groove Fridays. The bartenders also offer a variety of drink service, sliding gin cocktails to customers seated on bar stools or providing bottle service for those who stake a claim to a table by draping their pants over a chair.
Sooner or later, your girlfriend is going to figure out that all those fancy restaurants are just your bedroom redecorated with a new elaborate disguise each week. Today's Groupon will help you postpone the inevitable by throwing a real fancy restaurant into the mix. For $20, you’ll get $45 worth of sophisticated American fare and drinks at Fifth Avenue’s Urban Bar and Grill. Your taste buds will leap for joy under the spell of live entertainment, an extended happy hour, and pleasing tableware.
Pole Sinsations sets the stage for its sassy dance style by promoting positivity and self-confidence while female students explore a new art form. A roster of classes considers both the fledgling dancer and sentient barbershop marquees with a graduated curriculum for students of all levels of pole familiarity. Instructors closely guide newbies through Intro to Pole Fitness, in which ladies learn proper hand and foot placement as well as basic spins, all sandwiched between a body-protecting warm-up and cooldown. As dancers advance, they work to spice up the choreography with more challenging spins, off-the-floor inversions, and the elusive upside-down light-bulb change. Specialty sessions fold flirtation into classic routines, as students saunter through chair and lap dances or wield canes, top hats, and gloves for a feisty burlesque number. For each class, women should don comfy shorts, tank tops, and their choice of 4–6 inch heels or sexy wading galoshes.
