"I'll take you there, I know the path so well...
- The Mystery of Edwin Drood words & music by Rupert Holmes
I found myself playing the She-Devil more than once this month... First, I made my way, toy sword in hand, to Xena Night, usually the first Tuesday of every month at Meow Mix, only to find the windows shuttered and the doors padlocked! My precious East Village fix would have to wait until Brooke Webster finished the financials of buying out the building that houses her bar. That's when I began my descent on the garden path to Hell...
The next day found me with even worse luck... I sought refuge from the after-work zombie fate of the day-jobber by hitting good old WOW Wednesdays at Rebar. But wait - no more Happy Hour filled with Margaritas? How will I survive? Caroline may relocate the popular humpday hangout, but at the moment it is no more. What's a poor working girl to do for after-work extracurriculars? Well, you know what they say... An idle mind is the devil's playground...
So, I gave into the darkness and plunged into the depths at She-Devil, the new Tuesday night boy-girl party at the club Hell, where promoter Tina Alexander does double-duty as the hostess with the mostest and DJ extraordinaire. How many times have you gone to a party billed as "mixed" and found .6 women for every 10 men? Well, Tina succeeds with her mixed party - set perfectly in the (obviously) RED lounge at Hell - by keeping that ratio nearly even. There's a great relaxed vibe with just an edge of energy and pulse - people not quite dead from their day jobs and primed for post-work hanging out. Celebrities' headshots line the walls, with a pair of Mephistophelean horns poking out of their public heads. Drew Barrymore is especially wicked by the bar. There's plenty of couches and settees to sit back on, which come in handy after you've downed one too many of those 2-for-1 drink specials. It starts early and there's no cover charge - my kind of party. She-Devil's pretty happening in the underworld of weeknight lesbian nightlife, so come on down!
