Welcome to Sidekick's, where gay meets cowboy. The pinnacle of all specialty bars, this gay country-western joint opened its doors 15 years ago. The venue of choice for effeminate steer wrestlers (they really do exist!) it's also a popular spot for open-minded folks looking to line dance, listen to country music or shoot a game of pool. The vibe is relaxed and friendly, with different events taking place weekly -- amateur boxer-short contests, drag shows, charity fund raisers. This place is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended -- one can expect shirtless bartenders, ass-baring chaps and people just not giving a damn. It's that kind of scene.
