Pounding techno and male go-go dancers collide with a Texas-saloon atmosphere at JR's Bar & Grill. The longtime Montrose establishment is famous for its weekly amateur strip contests, drag shows and karaoke nights -- and offers pool tables, video games, multiple TV screens and a patio out back when the stage is dark. The light of pocketbook will no doubt give thanks for the $1 vodka well drinks on Mondays, along with JR's other daily "recession-buster" specials and occasional catered buffets.
