This Thursday Night & Into The Weekend
Since the 4th of July is on a Saturday this year, many people have Friday the 3rd off which makes partying on Thursday night July 2nd an option. For those of you who "don't get out much" on Thursday nights, I thought I'd publish a short listing of options. Keep in mind that nearly everything is open on Thursday nights so if you're aware of something better, please post it in the Comments below.
At Walt Disney World, Atlantic Dance Hall is an option. Located at the Boardwalk, this place is a lot of fun when it's full and with many sold out hotels on Disney property for the holiday weekend, there could be a big crowd on hand. The music is Motion-style; Top 40 & hip hop and whatever you want to request. At Pleasure Island, all clubs will be dark. If you're a glutton for punishment, stop and watch Celebrate Tonight for awhile.
Over at Universal, it's the increasingly popular 80's Night with former 8TRAX DJ Doc Wells in The Groove. A holiday weekend could make this their largest crowd since the Night began. Latin Quarter has Ladies Night and Hospitality Industry Night, and the famous DJ Leony at the helm. Blue Stone Circle is the live band at Margaritaville. It's also Ladies Night at Red Coconut Club with free admission for the Ladies. Friday Update: The Groove had the largest Thursday 80's Night crowd ever last night! LQ was so packed that it was next to impossible to move and it got really hot in there.
Downtown Tabu has it's regular "Pay at the Door and Pay No More" night. A $20 cover charge gets you an open bar for 4 hours with lots of hip-hop and Top 40. Famous local DJ Jimmy Joslin is spinning techno, house and dance at Vixen. Next door at Vintage it's DJ Kid Nemesis playing Top 40 and hip hop.
For the 4th itself, there apparently will be no free fireworks at Downtown Disney this year. The theme parks will have them, of course. For Universal's Summer Concert Series, the O'Jays will be singing Love Train, For the Love of Money and other hits. There will be a huge fireworks show afterwards followed by Universal 360 at 10pm. A new nightclub called Gloss Ultra Lounge opens Saturday night on the 2nd floor of the Cuba Libre Restaurant at 9101 International Drive. Ads refer to the music as House, Hip Hop and Classics.
Hope to see you all down at da club!
