America After Dark

We’ve already used this space to tell you how Bill’s Filling Station (2209 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors) has brought Sunday diners back in touch with a great American gustatory tradition, with roots in God-fearing, working-class towns in the heartland: the Blue Plate Special. Well, that all ends at 5 p.m., and then begins a night of debauchery that our Depression-era forebears would have a harder time understanding. Trannie Palace, featuring the feral Misty Eyez and DJ Scott Man, kicks off at 10 p.m., and features the usual draggy stuff — loud music, thrown shade, and fabulosity — while the bartenders crank out 32 oz. Long Island Iced Teas for $3, and serve up $10 to $13 beer buckets. These are hard times, but just as it was with our Dust Bowl predecessors, human ingenuity will always find a way to get sloshed on the cheap.
Sundays, 10 p.m., 2008
