Shake your rump

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza

Dancing is a hell of a drug. Maybe it’s because I’m a somewhat young woman who enjoys a good groove, but hitting a dance floor after a long, stressful week has some sort of healing effect on me. I suppose alcohol also plays some part. If you’re looking forward to some dancefloor action after turning in TPS reports or whatever other awful task you have to do, come out and shake away the workweek bootyfirst at these nights:

Whistle Stop Bar (2236 Fern St. in South Park) will get the weekend started right with Boogie & Shake on Friday, Jan. 25. Fam Royal Crew DJs J. Blow, Myson King and Philly Phil will take over the decks and spin hip-hop, funk and soul classics. After their killer New Year’s Eve party at Live Wire, these spin doctors will surely set the Whistle on fire with some good vibes and party jams.

Keep the party train rolling at The Office (3936 30th St. in North Park) for its regular club night, Strictly Business. DJs Kanye Asada and EdRoc serve as the conductors of this caboose, lighting up the dance floor with soul, rap, Motown and disco goodies. Show up early and take advantage of The Office’s killer happy hour. Drinks are half-off, and signature cocktails are $5. That’s the kind of deal that leads to The Worm on the dance floor and going home alone. Totally worth it, if you ask me.

If you had a particularly harsh Tuesday, the kind that only pop-lock moves will cure, head to The Boom Bap at Bar Dynamite (1808 W. Washington St. in Mission Hills). For no cover charge, you get an evening of great hip-hop in a chill environment. Have a drink and curse your boss. You earned it.
