Queen at Smart Bar and Porn and Chicken at Evil Olive
On the one hand, you can’t get better than a Sunday evening’s worth of DJ sets by the always nattily dressed, compassionate personality that is the inimitable Derrick Carter, with his house music bona fides. Then, it’s true that after a Monday night of dancing and drinking, few things are more welcome than kicking back with a handful of fried chicken wings and watching scenes of flailing, passionate porn madness. On top of everything else, it helps that they’re on off-nights when the usual weekend warrior crowds are getting their day-job beauty rest. Either way, you’re not likely to go wrong.
