The Shadow Room/Shag Frenzy in Middletown

shadow-roomThe Shadow Room café/lounge on Main Street, which opened last semester, is setting itself up to be a Middletown hot spot this year.

Located where Mega Wraps used to be (right on Main Street between College and William Streets), it has Mega Wraps’ sandwich menu for lunch and opens up the bar in the evening, with 6 craft beers on tap and film projections running along one wall.

As if that isn’t enough of a welcome bar night alternative to the Gatekeeper, there’s other stuff going on the rest of the week:

Hartford’s locally famous “Shag Frenzy” indie dance night (voted the Hartford Advocate‘s best dance night) is moving to the Shadow Room, and will be on the third Saturday of every month starting this Saturday, the 19th, with no cover charge.

Check out their Facebook event.

Date: Saturday, Sept. 19 (and the 3rd Saturday of every month after)
Time: 10:00 PM – 1:00 AM
Place: The Shadow Room, 170 Main Street

The Shadow Room is also hosting “Twisted Tuesdays”, a weekly gay night. From Barry Finder ’09 and Jegadish Guna ’11:

If you like the following :
(a) Getting Drunk on Tuesdays
(b) Gays, gays and more gays
(c) Dance Music (of the Lady Gaga kind)

Then you’ll love Twisted Tuesdays! If you are looking for an alternative gay scene or just want to meet gays outside of Wesleyan, you’re in luck.

There are drink specials before 11 as well as midnight shot specials. Come down for $5 martinis and $1 draft beer from 9-11 with your WesCard! You only need to be 18 to enter, but you will be required to show ID at the bar when ordering.

Date: Tuesday, Sept. 22 (and every Tuesday after)
Time: 10:00 PM – 1:00 AM
Place: The Shadow Room, 170 Main Street

    Aw man, I always wanted to go to Shag Frenzy, and it moves to Middletown after I graduate? That sucks.
    Enjoy yourself, current students!
