For four years Menz Bar (2182 Gottingen, 2nd Floor, 446-6969) has been a thriving social centre for the Halifax gay community, a lively watering hole that goes all night. Well, til 2am, anyway.
Since its relocation a block or so north and reopening in May 2008, the bar has continued to thrive, with the space being used by a variety of arts groups, including DaPoPo Theatre for rehearsals and performances. Menz Co-owner Doug Melanson is pleased to report that soon part of the Menz Bar space will be a Pride Health office, an outreach program launched by Capital Health.
The fourth anniversary celebrations will be happening all week. Wednesday night there'll be Kamikaze Karaoke with DJ Bear777, Thursday its a Jukebox DJ Party, all requests all night, and Friday its the warm-up party for the official birthday, with door prizes, $2 shooters and free hot dogs. The actual anniversary bash is Saturday, February 7.
"We expect a full house and a line-up," Melanson assures us. Come early.
