In the late 1990’s gay Wilton Manors was put on the map by “the dynamic duo” Tony Dee and Charlie Mielke. Â The two friends of over 40 years are known for running and owning Chardees Dinner Club. Â Most recently, the two dudes brought their expert touch and sense of business to Tropics on Wilton Drive. Â Holla!
Months ago, Charlie and Dee’s nephew Steven informed Dee that Tropics was available. Â Dee purchased the property that Tropics is located on while Charlie and Steven purchased the restaurant itself.
Dee and Mielke have been dining at Topics for over a month now to immerse themselves in the environment. Â They’re observing the staff, the professionalism, the clientele and the food.
The interior and exterior will be completely revamped, along with the menu. Â The dynamic duo is also planning an Endless Sunday Brunch and Thursday Evening Never Ending Buffet.
Ummm, I love buffets! Â Not because I’m morbidly obese, but I think it has something to do with being able to serve yourself. Â I don’t know, but I’m a little excited for this.
