Who’s Your Pick?
It’s that time of the year again…..
For gay sports fans, the biggest Sunday of the year is approaching as the NFL playoff season winds down. Even at Sidelines Sports Bar on Saturday, the diehard sports fans were showing their gay sensibilities as the conversation quickly turned from play patterns to fashionista celebrity quarterbacks Mark Sanchez of the Jets and Tom Brady of the Patriots. It was Sanchez who found himself closer to the big game and undoubtedly won a few hearts, as well.
On Sunday, all eyes at bars across town were on the celebrities walking the red carpet modeling the latest creations from Ricci to Versace. The jury is still out on Nicole Kidman’s dress, but one thing is certain, excitement is building as the crown jewel of the awards season, the Academy Awards, approaches. Look for the bars with the biggest screens to be busiest that night.
Whether your passion is football or fashion, South Florida has a nightspot for you, so get off that couch and get out this weekend.
