BOOGIE NIGHTS--STUDIO 54 STYLE
The Timberline--the biggest and gayest ski chalet I've seen, well, anywhere--is celebrating gay pride by making a mock Studio 54 set. The wooden dance floor at the Timberline is so large and slick it'll make your insecure jock brother dance around like he's in Michael Flatley's Feet of Flames. Timberline, 2015 Boren Ave, 9 pm-3 am, 21+, $10.
See preview above.
This is Seattle's perennial house night. If you wanna freak the dance floor or hear some chunky, ass-shakin', deep house--courtesy of Brian Lyons and guests--or if you just wanna drink until you're hanging onto the carpet to keep from falling off Earth, this is the place to go. I know this is a gay night, but dudes, remember to keep your shirt on, 'cause this ain't no circuit party! Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, 233-9873, 10 pm-2 am, 21+, $6.
Don't hate the playa, hate the game! Chop Suey is throwing a Sunday night hiphop party, so now there's no excuse for you lazy bastards to leave the Hill. Kick those tasseled loafers to the curb, bee-yotch, 'cause you can even wear sneakers and not get hassled. Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison, 324-8000, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, $3.
