COUNTRY NIGHT @ HERETIC
You can take the lesbian out of the country, but every once in a while a girl wants to kick her heels and do-si-do, which is why
(www.hereticatlanta.com/thursday) sashayed its way to this year’s best lesbian theme night. The girls gather on Cheshire Bridge every Thursday and select Saturdays, when they nearly burn the barn down with their hotness.
Country Night @ The Heretic
The monthly (www.facebook. com/bellissima.atlanta) parties at 10th & Piedmont was runner-up. BURKHART’S
After a quarter century of serving up boys and booze, (www.burkharts. com) remains the favorite spot for gay men looking to party in Atlanta. With two levels of tipsy boys, drag shows such as Tossed Salad with Brigitte Bidet, and the Saturday night Synergy show with Monica Van Pelt and Shawanna Brooks, it’s no wonder that Burkhart’s maintains its reign.
Second place went to (www.marysatlanta.com), and
(www.atlantaeagle.com) took third. ATLANTA EAGLE

(www.hereticatlanta.com) and (www.jungleatl.com) took second and third place, respectively. THE ARMORETTES The no-good do-gooders known as
