Well, today is December 1st, which means not only have I waited way too long to update this blog, but also it's the start of the month of nightlife. The cover story of our December issue (on newsstands now) is a comprehensive nightlife user guide. We give you 70 different places to hang out after dark and, conveniently, break them down to 14 categories depending on your preferred "scene" (lounges, galleries, sports bars, food spots...and the list goes on).
We tried to feature both new spots (The Get Down, Johnny Rad's, Bluegrass Tavern), as well as old standbys (Club Charles, Dougherty's, Cat's Eye Pub). We also wanted to appeal to the non-bar crowd, by featuring gallery spaces and reading series nights. We tried to be all-inclusive, but that is seemingly impossible. That's why we welcome your feedback: Did we miss something? How would you describe your "scene?" Let us know.
Also, to correspond with the issue, the magazine is hosting six different nightlife events throughout the month of December. All of the events are complimentary and include exclusive food and drink specials (you'll also receive a free copy of the December issue, while supplies last). The first event is on Tuesday, the 7th, at Milan, pictured. The following events will take place at Tatu, The Reserve, Talara, Ropewalk, and Oregon Grille. Be sure to make it out—we all need a break from holiday stress!
