You know you're a straight girl at NYU when you spend your Friday night with Drag Queens.
For my friend's 21st birthday, she wanted to do something besides the typical go-to-a-bar-and-get-drunk-because-it's-my-birthday thing. So after a nice dinner, we went to Boots and Saddle on Christopher Street. All I can say is beautiful. It's the perfect adjective for their four ladies. Dawned in sky high heel with hair weaves and caked on makeup, they were certainly working it. Starting at midnight, Yuhua Hamasaki and the ladies performed pieces from artists like Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Madonna. Can you ask for anything more than in a Friday night than a two hour dance party of gay men and straight girls jamming out to fun, pop songs? I think not!
Obviously, it's not the place to go if you're hoping to meet your future husband. But girls at NYU should know better. Their four years of college are less about finding boyfriends and more about having gay best friends. And the best part of spending an evening at a gay bar...you wont have to worry about skeezy guys asking for your number.
