Rick De Michele, 66. I am 6'1, 190lbs, brown eyes, shaved brown hair. Very outgoing and friendly. Partnered for 4 years. Love to travel.
I have to say that I am partial to Amsterdam. I met my partner there shortly after it first opened. The club is one of the areas biggest. The main bar is a huge rectangle shape and there are 5 flat screen tv's at both ends and a projector screen facing the front. The outdoor patio is great when the weather is nice outside. It has tables and chairs with a slight view of Midtown. Each night of the week has a theme and Tuesdays has beer specials along with showtunes. As for the drag shows, they came along after almost 2 years from the date of opening. Those people need extra money for what they do just like any entrepreneur out there. The patrons of this club are mixed in that you have the regulars and then you have those checking in to see whats happening. There is a huge dance floor in the back but whether its the music or the people, it is mostly empty. There is also another bar near the dance floor and a game room section off to the side of that. Couple of pool tables and dart boards along with more flat screens that show sports. The club could be much more than it is. I don't know if its the location or the management that holds it back. Times are rough right now, so the freebies that once flowed freely, IE: private parties, giveaways etc. are no more. That was great advertising and customer service. Hopefully the economy will jump back into overdrive and things will start hopping once again as in the past.
The decor is pretty nice. The latest technology because it is all new. Small main curved bar as you enter. At the end of the bar is the door to the outside patio/smoking area. Usually the dance floor has black curtains pulled across to separate the few chairs/tables area from the dance area. There seems to be a mix of straight couples, lesbians, bears, muscles dudes and regular gays that frequent the club. Its nice to see everyone blend together to have a good time. Some nights it takes a while before the DJ can get the good music going. There is another small bar on the dance floor level. The bathrooms are in the back behind the dance floor. The best thing about MIXX is not having to breathe second hand smoke while you enjoy the evening. There are a few more clubs with a few footsteps of MIXX all within the same parking area.
