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.
