If you peek behind the rent-a-fence at the corner of Wilton Drive and NE 6 Avenue in gay Wilton Manors you’ll see the uninhabited yellow building with all sorts of crazy construction going down.
Word on the street is that the building is going to be transformed into, “a new concept in upscale dining/nightlife” also known as Wiltons Bier Garden.Â Okay, okay I totally read the sign on the fence, but there is kind of a buzz going on about the upcoming business.Â
First of all what the crap does, “a new concept” mean.Â This concerns me a little bit (as do the bars on the windows of the building).
If a “new concept” means something weird like taking shots out of a stranger’s ear then COUNT ME OUT!Â Oh, and dining/nightlife?Â This could be good or bad.Â Normally if a certain percentage of food is served at an establishment, than smoking is prohibited inside the facility.Â
I can’t see that particularly being a good thing in gay Wilton Manors with all you smoking queens.Â Although, it would be a nice change of pace for the nonsmokers of gay Fort Lauderdale.
I also wonder how they plan on competing with Boom and Manor located onlyÂ a block away.Â I’m not really sure how I feel about all of this quite yet.Â You best believe I will be at the grand opening, though.Â Until then…
