Big Gay Road Trip: Winnipeg

We spent much of yesterday driving through the Manitoba countryside, which looks mainly like this:


Finally we reached Winnipeg and were excited to go check out the city’s best 80s dance party at the Die Maschine, which is a little hole-in-wall, 2nd floor venue with a great sound system.


We walked in and the first thing we saw was the caged-in dancefloor where the young, mixed crowd was dancing, and a larger-than-usual number of side ponytails were bobbing up and down. The vibe was kind of like a grown-up high school dance, and if they had played “Under The Bridge” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, we would have summoned the courage to ask this hot breaker guy for a dance. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be and we had to settle for watching him bust a move to a remixed “Like a Prayer,” which he was really excited about.


You can see some more of his moves after the jump, along with the some other shots of the club and the decked-out crowd.
