6. REMINGTON'S, D.C.

A two-level partner and line-dancing palace on Capitol Hill,
theme nights also star on Remington's country-saturated
calendar. Four bars and dance lessons on Mondays, Wednesdays,
and Thursdays add to the allure.


7. BADLANDS SALOON, LAS VEGAS

Badlands takes the bovine theme to a whole new level. Beyond
the faux-log-cabin frontage and lassoed sign, cows adorn every
available surface. A cow-painted pool table and the over-30
crowd await in this predominantly male neighborhood bar. The
jukebox is crammed to the rafters with all the hits, both
country and Western.


8. CHARLIE'S, CHICAGO

It's hard not to love a bar with a sparkling saddle disco ball,
but look beyond the sparkle and you'll find plenty more to make
you stay awhile. Hot bartenders, a crowd of friendly cowpokes,
and country music till 2 a.m. (after which time it heads over
to house music) make this one a winner.

9. CASH COUNTRY INN, PHOENIX

The best and largest lesbian country-western dance club in
Phoenix boasts a fine stable of hot, hot, hot women roped in by
darts, football, and Tuesday- and Wednesday-night dance lessons
to prepare you to stampede on Saturday, when the place fills up
with careering cowgirls. 


10. SPURS COUNTRY BAR, TAMPA

Only open on weekends, Spurs packs in the Sunshine State's
finest wranglers and keeps them spinning till the cow(boy)s
come home. Fridays' free line dancing lessons are made all the
livelier by "free whoop-ass shots" and Saturdays' karaoke
sings to the tune of an all-you-can-drink beer bust promotion.
A Sunday afternoon tea dance leaves Spurs' final brand on
Tampa's weekly social calendar.
