SUPER EGO So there is an official cocaine bar now — did you hear about this? (bit.ly/msI1Z) It's called Route 36, it's in La Paz, Bolivia, it serves up pure product — and apparently it's frequented by a lot of British backpackers. It also sounds horrifying. First of all, because of course: drug wars killing poor people and destroying indigenous communities for rich kids' amusement. Secondly, trapped with hyperactive, teeth-grinding, constipated Brits in a tiny backroom for days? Thanks, I'd rather be in a Katy Perry parody video on Fire Island in a rainbow mankini.

Thirdly, cocaine: really? We can do better than 2006, and we can do it American-style: in chains. Snort me awake when designer drug outlets Bed, Bath Salts, and Beyond or Hello Kitty Meow Meow open up in the mall. T.G.I.Premazepam! 7-hydroxymitragynine-11! Victoria's Sativex! AppleBromo-DragonFLYbee's! (Too far.)

Anywaddle, it's Thanksgiving vacation -- cue tiny Muppet voice in the background yelling, "Yaaay!" Put down that straw and let's just dance ourselves high, OKaine?

 

ALLAND BYALLO

SF's DJ ambassador of quality techno (and Kontrol crew member) decamped to Berlin last year, but we won't hold that against him — anymore. He'll deliver the warm fuzzies and hot strokes in a homecoming set to launch his new label "Bad Animal" at the Housepitality weekly. Oh hey, free food too!

Wed/23, 9 p.m., $5 before 11 p.m., $10 after. Icon, 1192 Folsom, SF. Facebook: Housepitality

 

CHERIE LILY

Does it really take a gorgeous and gorgeously toned white lady in fluorescent Danskins from Chicago to revive old school NYC club kid and voguing culture — via serious aerobics ("Houserobics")? No, but we're nuts for her anyway. Ms. Lily shakes your tailfeather with a gaggle of dragsters and hosts Carnita and Heklina at a party called WERK.

Wed/23, 10 p.m.-late, $8. Rebel, 1760 Market, SF. Facebook: Werk Cherie Lily

 

NIGHT BEFORE THANKSGIVING

New venue alert: the kids from much-missed Triple Crown (and some impressive others) continue to give us the royal treatment with Monarch, down in the old Room-Lit-Pow! space. Classic SF house and disco re-edit slinger Spun breaks in the floor.

Wed/23, 7 p.m., $5 before 11 p.m., $10 after. Monarch, 101 Sixth St., SF. Facebook: Monarch Thanksgiving

 

PRE-FEAST FREAKOUT

Psychedelic garage rap mayhem, with some electronic instrumentalism and rock thrown in? Truss me up and roast it, let's do this. Wide-eared local beats producer Al Lover celebrates the release of his new cassette mixtape, "Satanic Tambourines." Sleazy-fuzzy band Burnt Ones, country rappers Fist Fam, and disco punker POW open up.

Wed/23, 9 p.m., $5. Milk, 1840 Haight, SF. www.milksf.com

 

RITUAL DUBSTEP THANKSGIVING

Set your basters to boom-tastic for SF's only weekly dubstep party — and it has nothing to do with Burning Man! Residents Nebakaneza, Johnny 5, Mr Kitt, Foobz, and Ro Knew wobble your knees for free.

Thu/24, 10 p.m., free. Temple, 540 Howard, SF. www.templesf.com

 

TUBESTEAK CONNECTION

It wouldn't be Squat and Gobble Day without some big gay double-entendres! So: something something stuffing, something something sweet potatoes, something something lumpy gravy, something fist up a bird's ass. Now, go make out with hot boys at DJ Bus Station John's weekly bathhouse disco party.

Thu/24, 10 p.m., $5. Aunt Charlie's Lounge, 133 Turk, SF. www.auntcharlieslounge.com
