Avenue A Gay Bars Replaced by Keg Service and Whiskey-Infused Rice Krispie Treats

We hear Esquire threw a preview party at the new Aureole last night. Meanwhile, the new-media set (think Gawker and Huffington Post editors) were breaking in a new bar in the former Boysroom space. According to Guest of a Guest, Destination has what one of the operators (they include owners of Paladar and Iggy’s Karaoke Bar) has already deemed a “make-out corner,” and there are Jell-O shots with gummy tequila worms and whiskey-infused Rice Krispie treats. Think that’s a mess? Well, check out UrbanDaddy’s write-up of Superdive, now open where the gay-friendly Rapture Cafe used to be, a dozen blocks up on Avenue A: “You can mix your own cocktail behind the bar if you like. There’s no door policy — anyone can come in. You can order a round of beers or a keg of beer, and a cocktail waitress will deliver the keg to your table in a rolling kegerator.” The place is so friggin hetero, there are “f*ck off seats” where ladies can sit if they don’t want to be hit on. Or they could just go to a gay bar.
