You know those ridiculously stereotypical ideas born-again preachers harbor about the “gay lifestyle”? Chances are they look something like SBNY (a.k.a. Splash Bar). Everything at this dance bar is big and, er, vivid: carb-free, pectoralicious bartenders; mirrors at every angle; and a full arsenal of body-rockin’ beats. It even has an ATM and a store (lube or condoms, anyone?), so come for happy hour, stay for dancing, and do your best to yank away the itty-bitty towels worn by the go-go boys. Jerry Falwell should be so lucky.
