BJC Bar and Club Awards: The Winners

We held our Bar and Club Awards party on Saturday. Thank you to the 80 of you who voted. We now know which place to go watch English teachers make fools of themselves, and which place do you go if you’re seeking blue balls, and which place do you go if you hate conversation and want to experience the unique sensation of bleeding eardrums. If you’re the owner or manager of any of the following winners and would like your award, which will be in the form of a paper plate or plastic fork or knife, please let me know.

Some highlights:

- With one win: d lounge, Great Leap Brewing, Q Bar, Spark, Smugglers, Punk/Mesh, Kokomo, Chocolate, Tim’s Texas BBQ, The Swan with Two Necks, Red Club, Pure Girl, What Club, Maggie’s, The Den, and Migas. Propaganda/Sensation, The Bookworm and Mix/Vics each won two. Winning three: 1F.

- Speaking to the predictability of these popularity contests, you guys predicted Migas would win the Beijinger’s Bar and Club Award for Best Bar. It did.

- Spark, which won the Beijinger’s Best Club, was our readers’ choice for Most Likely to Make You Feel You Got Fleeced, Raped and Left for Dead.

- Propaganda/Sensation took more than half the votes in the Club with Lighting Most Conducive to Concealing Physical Defects category, making it the biggest runaway winner of any category.

- The Way Too Far For You to Care category yielded interesting results: The first and third choices got 11 votes, the second and fourth choices got 10 votes, and the last choice got 12. Two people wrote in “All of the above.”

And now…
