Town Danceboutique 2016D.C.’s “largest gay danceclub” is ending one of its longest running holiday traditions.

Town Danceboutique (2009 8th St. NW) plans to host its final “WTF” party this weekend, according to a Facebook event post.

WTF is a themed event series usually held around holiday weekends. Previous parties have attracted blasphemers for Good Friday, fitness fanatics for Thanksgiving and a big yellow cat for MLK Day.

“WTF is retiring at the ripe old age of 7. In party years, that’s like 107,” the Facebook post reads. “We’ve had seven solid years of late-night fried chicken, Pu$$y Noir’s milk showers, Dirrty Pony’s disappearing act, JaxKnife’s radioactive bearlesque, Salvadora Surrealness and Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 10 or 11 contestant BaNaka!”

The last hurrah before the event’s “gaycation” will revolve around a “happy ending” theme.

“Take this opportunity to wear that lewk you’ve always wanted to wear, to bring that squirrelfriend you’ve always wanted to bring or eat that hotdog you’ve always wanted to eat in front of that boy you always wanted show how well you eat a hot dog,” the Facebook post continues.

The party starts this Sunday at 10 p.m. and will include appearances and performances by Ed Bailey, Aaron Riggins, BaNaka, Pu$$y Noir and Salvadora Dali.

Look below the Salty Dog Tavern and you’ll find Dupont Circle’s newest gay bar.

The hangout, called the Woof Den Sports Bar, opened in the former basement space of the Black Fox Lounge at 1723 Connecticut Ave. NW last month, reported the Blade.

Though the Woof Den and the upstairs Salty Dog Tavern have separate entrances, they’re owned by the same person, said several employees behind the bar.

The bar has several televisions and two pool tables. According to the Blade, Woof Den “plans to coordinate bar events with the bear community in the coming months.”

Another bear-centric gay bar, Uproar, opened in Shaw last month.

Bigger is better, or at least that’s what the purveyors behind Logan Circle’s newest gay bar want you to think.

Trade, a new bar from Number Nine and Town Danceboutique owners John Guggenmos, Chachi Boyle and Ed Bailey will open its doors tonight at 1410 14th St. at 5 p.m.

Every day from opening until 10 p.m., the bar will sell regularly priced cocktails in 16 ounce pint glasses during a promotion it calls “huge happy hour.” But patrons looking for a happy hour drink menu won’t find one, said manager Aaron Riggins. In fact, they won’t find a list of drinks at all.
