Catch the Bus!

There’s always been a bit of a rivalry between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, especially when it comes to the nightclub scene. Both cities have great clubs and attract the best DJs, but ultimately it comes down to the 20-something mile trip when deciding where to party.

Living Room, the swanky club on Fort Lauderdale’s Las Olas Riverfront seems to have the answer for Miami gays looking for a change of scenery—a bus! Yes, a bus. Remember riding to and from school on the big yellow bus so many (or not so many) years ago? The cool kids always sat in the back and the brainy nerds were usually right up front. We suspect the ride from Miami will be nothing like those childhood trips that ultimately left emotional scars for life!

The Living Room School Bus will be making stops in Miami Beach and Downtown and, best of all, it’s FREE (with a pre-paid drink card available online). For more details and required RSVP, go to

After a big weekend out, it’s tempting to hit the hay early on Monday night. Instead, you’ll find yourself rolling in the hay at Scandals Saloon, South Florida’s popular country and western bar, located at 3073 NE 6th Ave. in Wilton Manors. Outlawz DJ Tim will be giving dance lessons beginning at 7 p.m. or just relax with a game of pool or hangout on the patio.
