Transcript 12 MONTROSE VOICE/JUNE 13. 1986 Doing America Miami Shows a Contrast of Cultures By Bob Damron The TV series Miami Vice has brought a new pride and awareness to Miami, which had been lacking for several years. Still, all that glitters is not gold on the fabled sun coast. Economics, politics and a soaring crime rate still erode the good life and elusive pleasures. Dade County's million or so inhabitants are an unwieldy combination of local Southern Baptists, retired sun- seeking New Yorkers, and transplanted Latino refugees. The liberated gay person must be defiant, while still treading very carefully. The twin lures of sun and luxury attract millions of tourists annually, and whether you 're the mink or bikini type, you'll find your niche here along Florida's "Gold Coast." Miami International Airport is the gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean serving some 40 or so foreign countries (not to mention fabulous Key West). Visitors to the tropical showcase may here to see Hialeah Racetrack, Jai-Alai Palace, Key Largo, Metrozoo, the Orange Bowl, Seaquairum, Vizcaya, University of Miami or the nearby Everglades National Park. But don't overlook the laid-back ambiance of village life in Coconut Grove or the hunks displaying their sun-tanned muscular bodies at Virginia Beach. The Miami gay bar scene has changed radically over the last few years. Uncle Charlie's at 3673 Bird Rd. is the top disco for men, while Horizons at 2054 N.W. 23rd Ave. is the late night dance palace that doesn't even get crowded until the wee hours of the morning. The original Karleman's has closed and has moved into a great new building, at 1060 N.E. 79th St. The new name is Club Milord, and it has disco dancing and entertainment. Other discos are Mixers, at 2490 S.W. 17th Ave., which attracts both men and women, and the Waterfront, at 3615 South River Dr. N.W., which gets a young Latino crowd. Downtown Miami's only remaining gay bar is the Double R at 1001 N.E. 2nd Ave., the closest thing to a macho cruise bar in town. It attracts whatever Levi and Western jocks are around, but closes at 1:00 a.m. on weekdays and 2:00 a.m. on weekends—much earlier than many nearby bars which are open until 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. Probably the most exciting new bar in Miami is Cheers, located about six miles south of downtown at 5922 S. Dixie Hwy. It has great video and a Sunday T-dance. Neighborhood bars include the Hole (some S&M), Leprechaun (crui- sey), and Gregory's (a piano bar). For the first time in number of Downtown Miami years, life is stirring again in Miami Beach. The Boardwalk at 17008 Collins Ave. is a popular show bar, especially with Cubans. The Sea Gull is trying to be the super complex that replaced the fabled Marlin Beach Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale. They offer cheap rooms, disco, leather bar, cafe and pool. Good luck. The beach can use it, if it makes it. For gay dining, try the Cactus, Hattie's Place or Olde Key West. For excellent, if very expensive "straight" dining, I like Cafe Chau- veron, Chez Vendome, Depot, Forge, Horatio's, Marcella's, Prince Hamlet and Raimondo. "Little Havana" has many good Spanish-styled restaurants such as Centro Vasco and El Baturro, where the flavors and aromas tempt your senses without putting your credit cards over the limit. The Club Body Center and Gym Miami at 2991 Cora!, Way is very popular. But I usually stay at the Holiday Inn at2500Brickell.Thisis just off 1-95 and the Rickenbacker Causeway, which is about as centrally located as you can get in auto- oriented Greater Miami. While here, pick up a copy of The Weekly News, one of America's best gay newspapers. From the glamorous facade of Miami Beach's faded hotels, through the Black and Latin ghettos to Millionaire's Row on Key Bis- cayne, the area is a study in dramatic contrasts. Miami is a great city and has the natural assets and resources to survive adversity. The Seminoles have an old saying that "hurricanes pass quickly, and then the sun comes shining through." Here's to a sunny, hot and tranquil Miami. Damron is the publiahser of the "Bob Damron Address Book '87,"a gay travel guide, available at many gay bars, baths, shops and bookstores, or by mail for $14.00, which includes packing and shipping, from Bob Damron Enterprises, P.O.
