Aunt Charlie's Lounge

Top choice gay

in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Vintage pulp-fiction covers come to life when the Hot Boxxx Girls storm the battered stage at Aunt Charlie's on Friday and Saturday nights at 10:15pm ($5; call for reservations). Thursday is Tubesteak Connection ($5, free before 10pm), when bathhouse anthems and '80s disco draw throngs of art-school gays. Other nights bring guaranteed minor mayhem, seedy glamour and Tenderloin dive-bar shenanigans. Cash only.
