djFilter: Looking for some direction and pointers getting my start as bar dj.

I'm looking to get a start in DJ'ing around town primarily playing the rounds in the trendier (see also 'dive') bars of downtown. My current home setup is a single Stanton t.80 with a Stanton SMX.201 2 channel mixer. I'm going to pick up another Stanton soon to try my hand at live mixing.
Now here is where I am a bit lost; do venues typically supply the tables and mixer in your DJ'ing experiences and if so, how big a deal is it adapting to each venues setup? How do I go about getting some time at a bar to prove my worth? (I'm guessing a recorded full mix?)
Any horror stories or advice for someone looking to ply his vinyl collection to the inebriated masses would be much appreciated. thanks
