America After Dark
Weve already used this space to tell you how Bills 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
