It was with some trepidation that we approached the opening party for the new HK bar Flaming Saddles. The name is pretty puntastic, but would the bar itself embrace the irony? Or would this be yet another gay venue awkwardly trying to come across as—to quote many Manhunt profiles—"straight acting"? Turns out we had nothing to worry about. The cowboy-booted staff hoofed on top of the bar with the glee of chorus boys while a mixed, friendly crowd took advantage of free pizza and beer. What could have been an unfortunate punchline will likely become a very welcome addition to the ever-expanding Hell's Kitchen boy-bar crawl.
