Augh, seriously? All of that hassle at the door, just so I can hang out with a bunch of trashy B&T types inside, bouncing around to weak house music? Please. This place is pathetic. Go if you're from Jersey, FLL, or live for GTL.

I just went here for a friend's event. It's called I'm from Driftwood, and they were fundraising for their cause. It's sorta like a cross country documentary about coming out. I pitched in a donation and all, but what drew me to come were the drink specials for their event (everyone has their own interests!) I was told gay bars make strong drinks and holy crap they absolutely do. Lowering inhibitions. I see what they did there. Aside from that, it's a pretty chill spot versus all of those other Gayborhood bars, which feels more night-clubby. I was also surprised to see that they had food. The rosemary fries were really good, and I ganked a fair amount of them from my friend who ordered it. It sorta has a taste that's similar to the Colonel's potato wedges, so I think it's safe to say rosemary is probably one of the 11 secret herbs and spices. Oh wait, back to TOC. It's a more relaxed gay bar. A place I'd be more inclined to hang out with my gay pals should they elect to go here instead of the other places.

Good things here. It's consistent in the quality of food, and I love that it sort of flies under the radar. Most of the people I take there have never heard of it, even if they are from Philly, which means it's not too well-known and I can usually easily get a table. Score! Really, they have great fancy drinks and specials, tasty food, good beer selection, decent decor, nice service. As for food, I've had their tacos, calamari, several other specials, and the lobster mac and cheese is heaven! You know how you can always remember a negative experience? Well, if I ever had anything bad here, I would have remembered it. Never had anything bad, though! Plus, they are around the corner from my house. I like that it's in the South Street area and doesn't draw the crowds and tourists like a lot of the places ON South Street. It's very unassuming from the outside. Secret treasure!
