Nightlife for November 3, 2010
It’s Holiday Season
Halloween was a huge success, both in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, thanks to the weekend-long celebrations, but the holiday is just the first of a string of celebrations around the corner. Now, Veterans Day has never been a big gay holiday—except maybe at Camp LeJeune—but expect those lucky bank and government employees to take advantage of an extra day to party. Three martini lunch, anybody? And, of course, Thanksgiving is barely three weeks away and the kick-off for the Chrismachanukwanzaka season (did I leave anybody out?).
There’s lots to look forward to, but our favorite South Florida nightspots aren’t content to wait for the next holiday to ramp up the action. Here’s a look at some of next week’s happenings:
Wednesday, Nov. 3
Drag BINGO takes on a whole new meaning on Wednesday at The Stable when Miss Candy Cornhole hosts DRAG-O beginning at 8:30 p.m. There’s plenty of cash and prizes to be won and whole lot of wacky surprises, too. The Stable is located at 205 E. Oakland Park Blvd.
Thursday, Nov. 4
Lose the shirts, bears, because Thursday is Bare Bear Chest Night at the Cubby Hole, the friendly little bar tucked away in a small strip mall in Fort Lauderdale. Bare (and bear) chested guys enjoy 2 for 1 drinks. Check out the action at 823 N. Federal Hwy.
Friday, Nov. 5
Boys, get out your iPhones because the hottest new app to hit South Beach is being unveiled tonight at Edison Farrow’s Hype Fridays party at 721 Bar, 721 Lincoln Lane. With this campy app, DragMe, you can see what your friends look like in their glamorous best. Enjoy free vodka drinks from 10 to 11 p.m. and later take in performances by Adora, T.P. Lords and Strawberry. Best of all, there’s no cover. Find out more about DragMe at iDragQueen.com.
Saturday, Nov. 6
Mova Lounge is one of Miami Beach’s coolest hangouts. The swanky modern bar is featuring the videos of popular VJ Barry Browder on Saturdays starting at 10 p.m. You can find the action at 1625 Michigan Ave., just off trendy Lincoln Rd.
Sunday, Nov. 7
There are plenty of great tea dances to choose from on any given Sunday night, but one of the most popular is Guilty at Bill’s Filling Station. While you’re three try one of the bar’s famous burgers. Hang out later and enjoy the amazing performances of Misty Eyez and her girls from the Trannie Palace beginning at 10 p.m. Heck, just make a night of it!
Monday, Nov. 8
Nicole T. Phillips and Latrice Royale are your hostesses-with-the-mostest tonight at Fort Lauderdale late-night club, Torpedo, for the outrageous Stilleto Drag Wars. It doesn’t matter who wins the battle, because these girls are out to win the war. The battlefield is at 2829 W. Broward Blvd.
Tuesday, Nov. 9
One of our favorite entertainers is pianist Jeff Hess. He tickles the ivories tonight in The Mustang Lounge at Bill’s Filling Station from 6 to 9 p.m. Sing along to the old standards and popular show tunes along with Jeff and don’t forget to order one of the bar’s famous martinis. Bill’s Filling Station is located at 2209 Wilton Dr.
