LONG ISLAND’S Gay Playground BY MICHAEL TODD, PUBLISHER

K

// GETOUTMAG.COM / MARCH 6, 2013

nown as the first stop or last stop from the trendy summer months on Fire Island, Long Island, New York, is now back to where it left off before the hurricane and snowstorms. With a whole night of barhopping for us to come and enjoy, Long Island’s gay venues are just a short road trip less than an hour from New York City. So set your GPS and take the 34th Street Tunnel (495 East) and keep going straight until you reach Gayland. Option 1 - Heading eastward onto the LIE you could get off at exit 44S to ease into your night at Blanche Bar. A South Farmingdale bar for more than 28 years, Blanche Bar offers good music, strong drinks at good prices, a pool table and a cozy little backyard patio. The bartenders can carry on a long conversation and there is never a cover charge. Blanche Bar is an inviting and comfortable way to start your night. About a year ago, I first visited Blanche Bar, and I knew it would be a place I’d visit again. Option 2 - Further east on the expressway off exit 53 is The Long Island Eagle & VERANDA. A warm greeting awaits everyone when you walk in the door but never will there be a cover charge. Ironically, the door is one of the only things that remains in the same place visit after visit. From the DJ booth to the TVs

to the jukebox and such, the boys are constantly switching things up to keep the bar fresh and exciting visit after visit. This jukebox has nearly every song ever made including most every remix or dance version and can also take your photo and upload it to Facebook or email. The built-in karaoke system allows you to grab the mic and be a star. Step outside onto Veranda, the famous Long Island patio known as the most comfortable and inviting spot to enjoy drinks in the sun or watch the stars with your friends at night. There is tableside cocktail service, posh furniture, tropical plants with a waterfall and a pond. WiFi is always available and music is streamed from the jukebox. You can shoot some pool or sit back in the leather couches and just chill with some of the nicest people on the island. Now in its 20th year, this bar offers Diesel drinks at discount prices and the best Long Island iced teas ever. Continue east to Options 3 or 4 - The Bunkhouse in Patchogue, exit 61, and the new Nuts & Bolts, also exit 61 in Holbrook (less than 10 minutes apart). Nuts & Bolts is a brand-new bar with a DJ and many TVs. You will love Nuts & Bolts. As soon as you walk inside you can sit at the 25-foot bar, with good-priced, strong drinks. Or sit outside in the huge outdoor patio space. There are drink specials and

special events lined up all the time, so there is always something new at Long Island’s newest gay venue. Over at The Bunkhouse, a cozy bar sits across the room from the huge dance floor and a DJ playing the latest hits. The Bunkhouse is also a great place to watch pageants or award shows in this huge venue. All four bars/clubs can be booked for private parties and have reduced-price drink packages available with your booked reservation. They are all open seven nights a week. Please visit their websites for more information. Long Island Eagle Bay Shore Station 94 N.

Prime Steakhouse, located minutes from midtown Manhattan in Long Island City, combines a modern look with traditional fine-dining service to create a unique culinary experience. In a chic, two-story restaurant, which features plush leather chairs and booths, patrons can sink their teeth into a 60-day, dry-aged ribeye, S Prime’s signature steak, or enjoy an enormous 48-ounce porterhouse steak for two. The meat is sourced from Creekstone Farms by highend purveyor Pat LaFrieda Wholesale. All steaks are aged in a custom-built dry aging room lined with Himalayan rock salt that helps condition the air and season the meat. S Prime also has a raw bar offering oysters from the East and West coasts, lobster cocktail and a fish

selection that includes organic Scottish salmon. Executive Chef Joel Reiss, a gastronomical visionary in his own right, brings with him more than 25 years of experience working beside some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in the world, including well-known names like David Burke and Terrance Brennan. “Except for the bread, everything is made in house from scratch,” says Reiss, who grew up in the Bayside-Whitestone area and has been cooking since he was 15. No expense has been spared to procure varietals from some of the finest vineyards in the world. A custom-designed, one-of-a-kind glass cellar offers something for every taste with wines from the best winemaking regions in the world, including Bordeaux and the Rhone Valley, the slopes of the Andes, northern California and the hills of Tuscany. S Prime also boasts two bars and three private, soundproof dining rooms.

Mary Testa Returns to 54 Below F BY JP BAPTISTA

// GETOUTMAG.COM / MARCH 6, 2013

irst of all, congratulations on your Drama Desk Award. It is well deserved! How did it feel when you were told you where getting a DDA? I was thrilled! I had actually been nominated four times prior to this, so it was nice to actually win!

PHOTO BY CURTIS HOLBROOK

The last show at 54 Below was a great success. How was that put together, and is this the same show? Michael and I culled from our last three shows to put this together. This will be the same show, with perhaps a couple of new surprises.

What show currently on Broadway would you like to be in? I like new things, so something new.

What is your favorite moment in this show? I like any time I can connect with the audience, but I especially like singing this Jill Sobule song, “Soldiers of Christ.”

If you could sing a duet with anybody who would it be, and why? I have so many friends that are brilliant in the theatre that I wouldn’t know who to name. And if I had a fantasy duet, it would probably be with Prince, because I think he is genius. And maybe Bruno Mars.

What is next for you? Lots of stuff. Some readings, Caucasian Chalk Circle at CSC, a solo show at the Asolo Theatre in Florida called My Brilliant Divorce and an opera at BAM called Anna Nicole. Also putting together a band with the intention of touring Europe.

What advice could you give a younger person just getting into show business? Never give up, and don’t plan too much. Let inspiration be your guide. And don’t be afraid to fall on your face, because that is where the lesson lies.

It’s no surprise that your fans miss seeing you on Broadway. Any chance we’ll be seeing you back on stage any time soon? Who knows? Would be great to be back on Broadway, but I guess the right show has not come along yet.

Most fans know you from stage, but we know you also do TV. Which do you prefer? I like doing everything! I like TV, stage, concert and film. I like it all!

Anything you want to say to your Testays (gay fans of Mary Testa)? After all, this is a gay magazine interview! HAHAHAHAHA! That is funny shit! I love it! And I love each and every one of my Testays.

Now let’s talk about March 20 and your show. What is the name of this show? Well, I like calling it “Have Faith,” but it is not a formal title. When choosing a song for a show like this, which comes first: music or lyrics? I need to have music that inspires me, but I would say both because there is a theme to this show. Speaking of putting a show together, who is your creative team? Michael Starobin and myself. And now John Paolillo who has come on board.

We are looking forward to another wonderful evening hearing you sing, tell stories and taking us to that place that only you can. That is the nicest thing I have heard all week! Thank you so much.

GETTING STEAMY

I

f you’ve ever read Get Out! magazine, then you know what we are all about: urging New York’s gays to get off…their computers, their couches, their asses…and get out into the venues that make this the most exciting city in the world for our community.

// GETOUTMAG.COM / MARCH 6, 2013

Few places embody that notion more than the East Side Club and the West Side Club—two of the city’s “social and relaxation clubs” for gay men—which shun the era of Manhunt.net and embrace the old-school notion of finding a trick face to face. While the clubs are touted as a place to unwind, grab a shower, relax in a sauna or watch a movie “with other like-minded gentlemen,” it is clear the only thing that’s on these men’s minds is having a good time. And, we’re down with that. Whether you’re the hook-up type or not, we know you have an Adam4Adam account, or you have perused the “men seeking men” section of Craigslist, or at least have added a hot stranger (probably shirtless in his profile picture) on Facebook, all with at least a sliver of hope that, one day, it will lead to you getting down and dirty. Point being, the East and West Side Clubs take the chance out of the equation. There is something to be said about walking into a place where you know what you’re getting, and you get what you want. Open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, the clubs offer reasonable rates for a locker ($17 weekday/$20 weekend per

visit) or private room (starting at $20/$22) and complete access to roam around in a towel (or more, or less) with other guys who are looking for what you’ve got to offer. A steam? A movie? Something more? We gave the clubs an impromptu visit recently and were pleasantly surprised with the experience: They were spotlessly clean, with a towel and other necessities provided with the cover charge; the staff, who didn’t know we were from this magazine, were friendly but discreet and escorted us to our rooms; and the other visitors, from the twinks to the bears and the Chelsea boys in between, readily flaunted their goods and desires without a hint of pretentiousness or timidity. If you’re used to endless “What are you looking for?”s to guys 5.7 miles away on Grindr, it is refreshing when the only question you need to ask is “Your room or mine?”

AY COLLEGE TUESDAYS AT SPLASH HAS BEEN REINVENTED FOR TODAY’S UNDERCLASSMAN. RESIDENT POP DJ STEVE SIDEWALK KEEPS THE BOYS DANCING ALL NIGHT LONG WHILE SUPER HOT GO-GO DANCERS SHAKE AND BOP ON EVERY SURFACE OF THE CLUB. WEEKLY GIVEAWAYS, COMPETITIONS, THEMES AND PERFORMANCES ARE ALSO ON THE SYLLABUS, COURTESY OF HEADMASTER DOUGIE MEYER, WHO HOSTS THE NIGHT’S HOT BODY CONTEST. STEVE SIDEWALK EXPLAINS.

H

ow has the college party been reinvented? For a while it seemed that college parties in NYC had all but disappeared. We wanted to bring that fraternity-meets-spring break party back with an extra-hot body contest. We’re in NYC, home to some of the hottest guys from all over the world. We’ve got to put them to good use!

Do they drink more or less? Definitely more!

What do today’s college boys want in a party? Hot guys. Great music. Cheap drinks...and did I say hot guys? That’s why we make sure we have the sexiest bartenders and dancers. Dougie always finds the hottest guys in the crowd to compete in each week’s hot body contest.

Are beards in or out? Beards aren’t really in for the crowd we typically get. Perhaps that’s more for the bear college scene.

Are you doing wet t-shirt contests? Try wet underwear contests! How do today’s “students” compare with the 30 and over crowd? They’re definitely less cruise-y in the clubs. There are many more (dating) options these days with phone apps and social media sites. What music do they dance to? Everything from Azealia Banks, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Calvin Harris.

Do they have any idea who Deborah Cox is? Absolutely not! Are muscles in or out? Definitely in. Any muscular guy is a sure-fire win at Dougie’s Hot Body Contest. The twinks rarely win the contests.

Do they manscape? AbsolutelyI It’s embarrassing to be in the Hot Body Contest and forget to shave. Dougie calls them out every time! Do “students” travel to big circuit party weekends like Miami’s Winter Party? They’re more familiar with Ultra Music Festival than the circuit parties. Their idea of a gay getaway is Fire Island or Asbury Park. They’re more local, less circuit. Do they think 30 is old? No, we have a wide range of ages at the party. These days, any age can go to college, technically.

GAY COLLEGE Tuesdays at SPLASH (50 West 17th St) is 18 and over (18 to party, 21 to drink). Visit Splashbar.com
