While neighboring bars in "Boys"town (i.e. Roscoes) have capitulated to the millenial "I can't go anywhere without my bfgf crowd (and yes girls, we know you the term fag-hag ... but WE know you hold us in disdain and only hang out because you have nothing else to do), Sidetrack had remained the last bastion of masculinty ... men who like men hanging out with men who like men ... those days have ended with the cutting short tonight of the longstanding and long-cherished Friday Showtunes in favor of the vapid RuPaul Drag Race. Like moths to a flame the closeted suburb guys who like chicks with dicks (it makes them feel better) and the millenial girls who feel cool because they hang at gay bars (jnsert selfie pics posted immediately to Instagram here) packed the place. The cash registers were ringing off the hook. Congratulations to the Sidetrack partners ... your bank accounts are full, but your soul is becoming bare. But isn't that where we are as a society after all. Shame.
