Best Place to Dance: Your lustiest MySpace fantasies made flesh

Mingles Martini and Champagne Lounge

There’s absolutely no doubt that if we were to dole out “Best Place to Thizz” awards, it would be Mingles Martini and Champagne Lounge all the way. Why? Because even with the recent demise of its “Jeans and High Heels” night, Mingles still draws in the sexiest hip-hop crowd in the East Bay — and, with the Wild Card pulling in a close second, it’s undoubtedly the best place to see your fantasies made flesh. Show up after 10 p.m. any Friday or Saturday night and you’ll see every possible permutation of the Jamaica “screw” face, the Chicago step, the Crestside thizzle, and the Oaktown hyphy dance, not to mention hordes of beautiful booty girls getting in touch with their inner hoochie. To top it all off, Mingles is a veritable showcase of grown man fashion — everything from Tims and military fatigues to faux Chanel-Prada-Gucci-wear, and enough gold chains to have Jack Spade and Mr. T. shedding tears of mirth.
