DC Cowboys Hoedown

What better way to unwind after a long week than with a little gay line dancing? I'd never even seen real live line dancing before I went to watch a former coworker perform with the DC Cowboys, an all-male, all-gay country dancing group, but I don't know how often Christina Aguilera's "Candyman" enters the rotation at other country bars. The Cowboys will perform tonight at Remington's at 11:30, but get there early to catch the regulars, whose elaborate moves are just as impressive. The fast-paced numbers are interspersed with sweet, slower, kind of waltzy-looking songs that draw couples of all ages. Not convinced? No cover with coupon.
