It was an early spring brake as my friends and I did a fabulous tour of the hottest gay nightclubs and restaurants in Fort Lauderdsale and Miami Beach. Our first destination was Georgie's Alibi in Fort Lauderdale. Georgie's Alibi is a Wilton Manors gay club offering nightly drink specials and live entertainment.
Next my friends and I shopped at the glamorous Neiman Marcus and later dined at the world famous Mai-Kai Restaurant complete with their Polynesian revue.
The roaring drums sound the beginning of the exciting island revue. You will be enticed by the romantic Hawaiian wedding dance and the thrilling Samoan fire knife dance performed by our native Polynesian dancers. Let us sweep you off your feet with our great service, exquisite cuisine and entertainment second to none!
Our dinner and show package is a true evening to be remembered, and a fantastic value for a night on the town! Escape to one of the most unique dining and entertainment places in all of South Florida. Since 1956, it has captivated people with its warmth and magical aura. Marvel as agile warriors and beautiful maidens perform dances from the South Pacific while you are dining on tropical dishes and exotic drinks from an award winning menu.
The Mai-Kai Restaurant is the first restaurant in Greater Fort Lauderdale to receive the American Express "Gold Pin Award" for the value and quality of food and overall experience, outstanding customer service and their tenure, growth and commitment.
Next was sexy sultry city of Miami Beach where we visited friends at their Miami Beach home and dined later at Magnum Lounge located at 09 NE 79th StMiami, FL 33138, Neighborhood: Shorecrest.
