Go to the Tender Trap (aka The Trap House) on a Saturday night and experience the best of what The Burg has to offer. Pay no mind to the cynics (read: haters), because even in the face of lurching gentrification on the Northside, the Tender Trap preserves all that is beloved about the Southside: an utter lack of downtown pretense and an enduring community spirit (read: crew love). Saturday nights feature a mix of consummate hip-hop jams and nostalgic 90s R&B. But be forewarned: What happens at the Tender Trap stays at the Tender Trap. -Jason Parham
