It's Saturday night and you're ready for round two (or three, or four, etc). Tonight, you'll go downtown. There, heels will clack, men will stumble and all will have a good time.

"Saturday nights are a give-in," said Marcella Spinuso, 20, math sophomore. "Even if you have stuff to do, pretty much everyone in Gainesville goes out tonight."

Here are two safe options:

Neon Liger Dance Party at Spannk

Come here if you're ready to get freaky. We're talking hipsters and drag queens and ravers and GDIs: Gainesville's finest. Here, no one cares about who you are or what you look like. Just dance.

#SimonSays Saturdays at Simon's Nightclub

The name says it all: Simon Says. Each Saturday, Simon spontaneously shouts out ten unique drink specials that only last 10 minutes each. It's a fun way to change things up from your usual. This is a high-class joint, so be sure to dress up!
