ManShaft turns Cockpit blue collar [photos]

ManShaft loves to tease us but when it comes time for another edition of the manly men party, this occasional event always delivers. Hey there, Blue Collar/Truck Stop Edition.

ManShaft’s burly, working-class crowd – whether blue collar for a night or in reality – filled Cockpit on Saturday. DJ Diablo Rojo, the brains behind this brawn, sat perched in the DJ booth spinning a mix of retro fun and current day pop under the glow of a nearby TV playing vintage porn.

Oh yes, this wasn’t your pretty-boy bar. It was gritty fun in the tradition of ManShaft, which brought us lumberjacks in February and a hairy, hunky poolside splash last year.
