back in 2002, i started djing at a new lounge in the east village called 2nd Nature. A cool non-pretentious place to go for a drink to hang out with friends. one of the few bars i'd been to in NYC that looked as good with all the lights ON as with them off. after 3 years of successful business, they sold it off for a profit. their next venture was opening an upper scale restaurant called Gin Lane, where i still periodically dj today.
their latest place is called Johnny Utah's - a bar/ restaurant place near rockefeller center that features a western theme -- and YES - a mechanical bull. no bulls**t. they really have one. in fact, it's pictured here. see --- i told ya! so, stop on in - and jump on.
