About Georgie's Alibi/Monkey Bar Restaurant and Gay Nightclub

Georgie's Alibi is Wilton Manors' (a gay enclave surrounded by Fort Lauderdale) main gay nightclub. It's always busy. There are video monitors in every nook and cranny (even the restroom) and the VJs are great. The music is mostly current Top 40 with some blockbuster Country and oldies thrown in. Occasionally the VJ throws comedy clips from Mad TV, Saturday Night Live, Will and Grace and many other gay themed shows onto the monitors. 

The Georgie's Alibi Restaurant menu includes burgers, chicken and fish sandwiches, pasta, salads and many other dishes. The restaurant's atmosphere is casual and mostly outdoors on a large covered patio with several swings to eat in. This is casual dining, a great place to meet friends, have a drink, a burger and a good time. The Miami Herald says this about Georgie's Alibi: "Right in the heart of Wilton Manors, Georgie’s Alibi is still one of the hottest spots in town. This place is almost always packed and there’s usually a line."

Georgie's Alibi Restaurant Review

Editors note: In a development since this review was written Alibi's Champ Burger has been  named best burger in Fort Lauderdale two years in a row in a competition that included national heavyweights like China Grill and Morton's Steakhouse.
****  
Almost everyone has been to the gay landmark George’s Alibi at least once since assimilating into Wilton Manors Gay Society. With their now legendary $3 Long Island Ice Tea specials on Thursday nights why not? Well, it is now time to rediscover Alibi as a fun food place as well with affordable eats on a great outdoor patio. 

While there, why not try one of the more than fifteen appetizers? You could easily share some Potato Skins and Jalapeño Poppers before getting a burger or deli sandwich? I personally love the roast beef deli carved sandwich with provolone cheese and a pasta salad with Italian dressing that will make it seem like a one-person picnic on a plate. Most of my friends enjoy one of the coveted swings. Sit in one and you'll soon find yourself sitting at a full table. Did you know that they have a wide variety of sandwiches including a Croissant one with your choice of: Tuna, Chicken, or Shrimp Salad? What other place also has a full-stocked bar to have that perfect cocktail with that Pinwheel Rolled Sandwich? How about a fresh draft beer with a Club Sandwich?  

Speaking of outdoor dining in Wilton Manors (a city with loads of patio options), did I forget to mention the Wilton Manors Gay gym’s entrance (Steel Gym) is nearby and brings a whole new meaning to People Watching? 

Why not rediscover the home that you have claimed as your own on Thursdays as the Café you meet your friends at anytime of the week?

US House 'Snatches Discrimination From the Jaws of Equality'

Rep. Sean Maloney (D- N.Y.) was told to "get back on your side" as he tried to point out that the time to vote on his proposal had come to an end. The proposal, which would have enforced non discrimination on the part of government contractors, was defeated by House Republicans who kept the two minute voting slot open for an extra six minutes to allow extra republicans to vote down the proposal.

In a move that sent House Dems into a state of apoplexy, the leadership on the Republican side shamefully broke the rules to allow hate to win, at least for this round. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL. district 21) told Mark's List: “A bipartisan majority voted to protect LGBT employees on the House floor today. What happened next was shameful. Speaker Ryan bent the rules and twisted arms to defeat the winning amendment. The conservative majority's leadership grossly abused its power to override the will of the House and the clear will of the American people. But no abuse of the House rules can undermine the progress we have made and will continue to make. I will continue to fight against bigotry in any form and strive for full equality for LGBT Americans.”
