Like a humble band, Black Betty must note that its greatest strength is its fanbase. Happily, the crowd is sans attitude, a welcome alternative to sweaty late-night pageantry. DJs spin an educated mix of funk and soul and rock, but a sultry Moroccan theme and stiff drinks are often to blame for the common outbursts of dancing among would-be wallflowers. An impressive menu of  Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean fare is only a room away, and although heavy, it provides a civilized reprieve from a night of drinking, dancing, and debauchery.
