Thinking about leaving Vik's? Decided to perhaps walk home? (Max told you about the Tropical Smashes!) Maybe you want to stop off somewhere along the way. Vik has put this list together of swinging and swank in the web. He neither judges nor reviews. Vik lets you decide if you want to stop by. Every one has been swank tested and hipster approved!
