BEST NIGHT OUT: THURSDAY
For those looking to eschew the weekend crowds, consider a Thirsty Thursday. Start at Stir for “Stirsday,” where the five-dollar cover gets you dollar drinks ’til midnight. (Midnight!) Next, saunter (or perhaps stagger) down to Bob and Barbara’s for the longest-running and best drag show in Philly, hosted by the extraordinary Lisa Lisa. At 1, cab it (you’ll need to by this point) to Woody’s, where DJ Deejay spins in the Suite. Then, over to Voyeur before last call to avoid the long lines; Suga Shay will keep you on your feet down in the Ruby Lounge. Good luck getting to work on time — or sober — on Friday. Stir, 1705 Chancellor Street, 215-732-2700; Bob and Barbara’s, 1509 South Street, 215-545-4511; Woody’s, 202 South 13th Street, 215-545-1893; Voyeur, 1221 St. James Street, 215-735-5772.
