How'd the Tuesday back from your three-day turn out? Brutal? Even if you don't normally go all gushy over, oh, that Lady Gaga "Paparazzi
" video, or spending daylight hours in a bar with a dance floor that flashes hard enough to induce seizure, you can find some measure of weekend extension at the two-for-one well-drink happy hour (3-8 p.m.) at Badlands
. Yeah, we know: BOGOs are as much a cliché of gay bars as the mirrored pee trough, or the tragically hammered queen intent on sloshing every goddamn drop of her vodka-tonic on the blue suede of your new Adidas. But the vibe here is so amiably teadance-in-Ptown
-- a Ptown inhabited by Asian guys who shop exclusively at H&M
-- that it all feels vaguely vacation-like. Exactly what you need to rinse the taste of Tuesday out of your mouth. Just in time for Wednesday.
