Remember when a ragtag group of kids got together to save the community center in Breakin' 2? We feel the same way about Cheer Up Charlies. It's not just a bar for Austin's LBGTQ community. It's not just another East Sixth haven for hipsters and slackmeisters. It's where we come together to watch movies, hold fundraisers, and bring our first dates. Noise ordinance, schmoize ordinance. Cheer Ups is indispensable – not to mention our rainbow-hued Electric Boogaloo.
