PART TWO ¡V Miss Rub My Hot Spot Nights

By Yahan Wu

     Restlessly curled up in front of the TV, I decided to scratch the itch that's been spreading across my body all evening. An hour later, after a quick phone call to a girlfriend, we're lined up outside Plush at Living Mall, geared in flimsy, skin-baring tops and hipsters.

     Skeptical whether the NT$700 entrance fee on weekends (half price on weekdays) would reap any worthy game, at least the crowd clicked with me and my girlfriend the moment our boot-heels sank into the lush carpet. We were thrown into a frenzied sea of hormones. Men and women gyrated to R&B thumped-out from five-star speakers on the oval-shaped dance floor not far from the entrance. X and Y chromosomes swim along invisible currents, mingling and striking-up friendly yet suggestive conversations.

     Sandy Huang, a 24-year-old retail worker, says a night out at Plush with her girlfriends is almost always a guaranteed ticket to meeting new men, probably there for the same reason. ¡§Most guys there are around our age and know how to have fun. The atmosphere feels classier than other clubs, and the crowd seems to feel that too, so their approach and style is moved up a notch. I like that.¡¨

     And if you wake up next to Mr. Bean instead of Ben Affleck because Plush has poor lighting and feature-contorting disco beams, maybe you should head for Roxy 99 (B1, 218, ChinShan S. Rd. Sec.2).

    Not only affordable (NT$200), you can actually count the moles and pimples on your target. It's always packed--and I mean really packed--during weekends, and that really helps burst the personal-space bubble.
