I've realized balance is probably something that DJs need more than people with normal jobs, sunlit ones where you can just eat a Chop't salad at your desk and hit Soul Cycle after your last meeting of the day. A DJ's cubicle is everyone's party, and that's not a workspace where balance is easy to achieve.

The 'OpenTable of After Dark' That's Democratizing the NYC Nightlife Scene

Party Earth | Posted 11.24.2014 | Technology
Party Earth

The New York nightlife scene, especially the higher-end clubs, has a stigma that the only way to get in, or to have the best time, is to "know a guy." Otherwise you're stuck with the rest of us peons dealing with lines, covers, poor service, and ultimately a less-than-satisfying night out.

The Pros and Cons of Straight Guys in Gay Bars

Jeremy Helligar | Posted 11.02.2014 | Gay Voices
Jeremy Helligar

I have mixed feelings about straight men in gay bars. Should gay spaces be for gay people only? Straight men can disrupt the aura of acceptance in a gay space. We go to gay bars and clubs not just to drink, dance and score, but to celebrate our own desires in a safe place, away from homophobic hecklers and heterosexuality.
