Gay celebrities and friends of gay celebrities strolled the red carpet and partied down at this year's GLAAD Media Awards, honoring positive portrayals of LGBT people in movies, television, magazines and more. Glee's Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith presided over the glittery crowd.
Looking for a bit of island spirit in the city? Head to Dromedary Bar for the urban tiki experience. The Bushwick bar serves up riffs on classic tropical drinks, like the banana daiquiri–esque Marlin Chasing a Mermaid ($11), a combination of cognac, mezcal, banana, lemon and rose. Island flavors crop up all over the drink menu, like in the gin-based Coconut Soda ($11), which gets a frothy texture fro creamy coconut milk and sparkling LaCroix. If cocktails aren’t your thing, there’s also a selection of beers on tap ($5–$8). In the kitchen, Chef Galen Duncan churns out a menu of classic pub fare. Think burgers ($11), sloppy joe sliders ($4), chicken tenders ($6) and lots of fries ($3). The exposed brick barroom also hosts a variety of events, from trivia nights to weekly karaoke to comedy shows.
