New Menu at Lips, Kosher Demos at Winn-Dixie

Lips, Fort Lauderdale's drag show dinner theater, deserves credit: It's tough to continually pump out menu items that feature nearly as many witty double entandres as the riotous stage show. But somehow, the drag supper club continues to do it. The restaurant is rolling out a host of new menu items for Summer, some of which are even named after local talent. Take the Twa Larouge lettuce wraps, for example -- these fresh Asian-inspired wraps which chicken and veggies are as nutty as the lady who inspired them. Then there's the Misty Eyez Atlantic salmon, a hot, grilled fillet made saucy with lemon buerre blanc. Each of the new appetizers runs $7 to $13, and the entrees are priced at $16 to $27, making a meal that works your funny bone (and more) well within reach. Call 954-567-0987.
