WILTON MANORS – Heavy rains from Tropical Storm Isaac caused the postponement of the scheduled August 26 “Wilton Manors GET OUT THE VOTE Bar Crawl.” “We believe it to be more prudent to act on the side of safety and caution,” said Jennifer Morales, Sidelines’ Marketing Director and one of the organizers. Morales said the event will be rescheduled for sometime in September.
The organizers planned the community-wide effort to register as many LGBT voters as possible, and to draw awareness to issues of political importance to the gay community. Local drag performers Nikki Adams, Nicolette, and Jersey Dion were scheduled to lead a “barcrawling” crowd through eight local watering holes, including Sidelines Sports Bar, Bill’s Filling Station, The Manor, Rosie’s Bar & Grill, New Moon, Matty’s On the Drive, The Alibi, and Boom. More details will follow in the Agenda.
