      Vine Symmetry Wednesdays
      One of Hartford's hidden gyms. It's a gay hipster/geeky vibe. One of the few bars left that brings in a mixed crowd. I guess what's primarily different is that each week there is something new. When you walk in everything glows with green and blue lights. To the left is a stage for your typical drag show, but I like how they sometimes bring in gay n lesbian music artists and bands. I've gone and there's been dance crews, gay rappers, drag kings, and a variety of things. There's a main dance floor for your Top 40, house music, and latin/reggae. Then to your right there is a second room with a pool table and a strip pole for exotic dancers where they play all vogue & ballroom music. Pictures of Donna Summers, Madonna, and other gay icons posted on the walls. Cover is always $5 all night with $3 Vodka drinks before 10:30pm. Not bad for a Wednesday.
