Edison Farrow is the godfather of South Beach gay nightlife. When he began promoting events under his company name, SoBe Social Club, he pulled the gays out of the Beachs early-millennium social doldrums and reminded them it was fun to go out at night. His creations Martini Tuesdays, the Simple Life at Buck 15 are mainstays of the weekly calendar for any South Beach man who loves men (and the women who are their best friends often join in the fun).
Never one to rest on his laurels, Farrow has created a new reason to drink and be merry: Galaxy Fridays has moved in to Casale, a newish pizzeria on SoBes trendy restaurant row near the Venetian Causeway. Drink and dance on the rooftop patio beneath the starry sky hence the name Galaxy with guys who enjoy wearing tight T-shirts and fashionable footwear. And theres no cover charge! Beware, the line downstairs is lengthy after 11 p.m. But to paraphrase Gretchen Wieners from Mean Girls, Farrow cant help it if hes popular.
