Check Out My Cart!

Everyone in South Beach knows the gayest grocery store is the Publix on West Avenue (1920 West Ave., Miami Beach). Yes, gays also like Epicure, but that place is crazy expensive! The West Avenue Publix has been adopted both for its wine selection (two aisles!) and for the fact that the store's design-forward exterior looks like something out of The Jetsons. Now it's official: Matthew Tumbleson, through his Facebook page and his popular blog www.outwithmatt.com, has decreed Monday nights as Gay Grocery Nights at the Publix. The boys show up, shop, and perhaps mingle a bit as they check out what's in each other’s carts.

"What I like about this event is that it's a way to create social change," Tumbleson says. "By all of us going at one time, we promote coexistence in the community, and we can push the business to make special sales and put certain items at a better cost for us." That, and with more cute guys to cruise, you have a better chance of inviting someone home for dinner. And Mondays have the best sales! B.Y.O. shopping bags from 7 to 11 p.m.
