  • Sapphire

    Sapphire

    Everyone from Jersey folk to Village kids to uptown city kids get down and dirty on the dim Sapphire dance floor. It's not as trendy at the Meatpacking clubs, not as aggressive as the midtown ones-and isn't that a good thing? More on Sapphire »

    Pavilion Theatre

    I always wondered where parents hid the Slope's young adults (did they just roll tykes downhill when they started to outgrow the baby carriages?) until hitting the Park Slope Pavilion on a Friday night. Maybe it's just me, but the adolescent... More on Pavilion Theatre »

    • Better Than: Soul food with an emphasis on screaming, shaking, censor-free soul. You knew the evening would be special as soon as the mac n' cheese came around.
