What's better than a gaggle of gays all in one place? Gays on the move! Tonight the streets of South Beach will be crawling with gay men partaking in the first-and-we-hope-not-last Equality Florida Bar Crawl, benefiting gay rights organization Equality Florida. The crawl bops around the various gay bars on the Beach, beginning at Palace at 8 p.m., continuing on to Halo at 10, Score at midnight, and wrapping up at Twist at 2 a.m. Each venue will provide complimentary Absolut cocktails for the first hour and a half, which means six hours of free liquor!
We're happy to drink ourselves silly to help Equality Florida, which does some great work its fighting that ridiculous law that bans gay people from adopting kids in our state. How embarrassing! That law needs to go. The night will be a fun one regardless of the greater purpose, with the "ladies" of the Queen Cabaret drag revue performing throughout the evening. Entrance is $30 wait, $30 for open bar all night?!? Dang, that's the best deal in town. Call the Equality Florida office at 305-573-4499 for more information and the addresses of the bars. As if you don't know where Twist is already, you lush. Visit www.eqlf.org/tickets.
