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.

BEST OF THE GAYBORHOOD AND BEYOND: Day Drinking

BEST DAY DRINKING: KNOCK

At Knock, the city’s greatest day drinkers — mature gay men — come out to play. When weather permits, grab a seat outside and order the Knock Mimosa from Jeb, made with Stoli O for an extra powerful punch. What you’ll lack in eye candy will be more than made up for in conversation with the city’s best barroom raconteurs. 225 South 12th Street, 215- 925-1166, knockphilly.com
