A month after its grand opening, Club Argos has worked out most of the wrinkles in branding itself an alternative sports bar. And what better way to promote a club for gay guys loaded with testosterone than with its six-man dance team, the Argonauts

I didnt know people wanted a place where they can watch football or basketball in peace, he says. When I say alternative
, I mean for everybody: lesbians, gays, straights. As long as theyre tolerant.
