|The Facade of "The Out"|
And all of those same-sex bachelor and bachelorette partiers? They may want to head to Atlantic City, to Prohibition, the country's first gay bar to open in a major casino (in this case the Resorts Casino Hotel, right on the boardwalk). With a roaring 20's decor, a drag show, and muscled servers in wife beater t-shirts, the bar already is drawing a crowd, despite the fact that it debuted only this summer. The New York Times ran a fascinating piece on the genesis of the bar and the attempt to revitalize what had been a sagging old resort with an appeal to the gay market.
And for any of my gay friends getting married soon: I have two lovely daughters who'd be happy to serve as flower girls. Here's to progress!
