Serious serial monogamy

There have always been things to love about Java Boys in Wilton Manors. Besides the best mocha in the world (seriously: everybody else skimps on the chocolate), Java Boys has pretty good pound cakes, comfy sofas, a friendly clientele, and a ceiling lined with televisions tuned at all times to such fabulously fabulous entertainments as Some Like It Hot, rebroadcasts of Cher’s farewell concert(s), and Kylie Minogue music videos that you’ve never ever seen before.

Now, alas, comes Singles Mingles: speed dating for gay dudes. In case you don’t know Speed Dating, it’s an event during which you have multiple (sometimes 20!), consecutive, three-minute dates with people who may well be your soulmate. It’s not a practice that’s caught on much in Wilton Manors (those of us who live here don’t need a special occasion for a three-minute date), but if you haven’t tried it, do. Call 954-564-8828‎ for more info.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
