Who knew that RED CHAIR RESTAURANT AND VIDEO LOUNGE
would make such a big splash as a gay destination by banning smoking indoors? The re-fashioned former Fusion location now features a large central bar, Picasso-esque murals and a dining room where people eat (really
) while viewing large screens showing the latest Kylie and Madonna videos. On weekends, when the dinner crowd dwindles, the men begin their slut walks through the tightly clad hordes. But on weeknights, the bar has become a new hot spot for the women, who flock to the weekly drag king shows. And for those who need to smoke, there's a porch -- which is often packed.
