features pictures of businesses along Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors, the heart of the gay village in Fort Lauderdale. Starting in the north near 26th Street is "Hamburger Mary's," a very popular site for outdoor dining. Then comes "Acapulco Lindo," a very pleasnt Mexican-Cuban Restaurant, and "Simply Delesh," an eclectic American restaurant. "Chardee's" is a large complex of bars and restaurant catering especially to the older gentleman; Sunday evening sing-alongs are low key and enjoyable. The entrance is at the back. Across the street in Wilton Manor Mall is "George's Alibi," one of the most popular gay bars in town. It has an outdoor eating area, three indoor bars, lots of video monitors, and plenty of men. Next door is "Mustard's," a very fine restaurant with innovative use of ingredients. Next is "Tasty Thai," perhaps the best Thai restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, with a wonderful intimate quiet setting. The "Corner Pocket" is a bar and billiard parlor; the "Gay Mart" features clothing of many kinds, including shirts and pants, not only underwear and swim suits; "Boom" is a popular gay bar; and "Java Boys" is a pleasant coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating and good pastries.


Further down Wilton Drive is "Siam Cuisine," another good Thai restaurant, and "Tropics," a gay bar-cabaret-piano bar-restaurant, which caters especially to the older gentleman. Near 16th Street is "Tropixx," a video sale and rental shop, and next door, the "Ramrod," a bar aimed at the leather crowd and often very cruisy. They are open to anyone, however, and very friendly. Nearby is "Catalog XXtreme," the largest gay shop in Fort Lauderdale, with videos, CDs, clothes, magazines, toys, novelties, etc. The "Boardwalk" is one of the most popular stripper bars in town, and across the street is the "Gay and Lesbian Community Center" and Stonewall Library, with resources of all kinds and a very friendly place. A very fine nearby French bistro is "Croissan'time," which is three stores adjoining: the first is a cheese, cold cut and gourmet foods section (finding good cheese in Fort Lauderdale is very difficult; the best are here); the middle portion is a superb French patisserie filled with pastries and fresh French bread baked every hour all day long; and the third portion is a deli, where you can order sandwiches, quiches, and light meals to eat either in the establishment or under the very pleasant arcade outside, out of the sun. There is usually live music during meals.
