The biggest, oldest queer bar in Greensboro is closing.
Literally. As I type.
It’s been here, under various names and owners, for nearly thirty-five years. I haven’t set foot in the damned place in over twenty. But I’m here tonight for the farewell as a favor to a friend. Hated the place in 1984. Hate it even more now. Enough said. I won’t miss it. Big “one size fits all” queer dance clubs like this are from another time, and I’m really okay with being on the back end of that scene.
- Crappy music.
- Annoying drag show.
- The realization that no one I still know (or would ever hope to meet) can be found in a big queer dance club in Greensboro NC.
Worst Saturday night ever. Or at least since 1984 or so…
