BAS Pride 2014: LEXhibition, Free Waffles and Bottomless Mimosas at the Lexington Club
When it comes to the city’s queer gin bins, you can hardly do much better than the Lex. For one, it is one of only two that serves the women’s’ community full time and even if that isn’t your bag, it’s a nice neighbourhood joint with cool people and a beautiful neon sign. Last, but not least, if you’re easily disgruntled by a light pour, then my friend, your parched purgatory is over. Honestly, given that it serves a niche market, The Lexington could easily rip people off ala such choice shit holes like The Badlands, but the owner, in addition to being a babe is also classy, so instead she pretty much gives the bar away every year. As part of their Candy Crush: Pride 2014 line-up they have free parties almost every day this week plus bottomless mimosas pre-Dyke March on Saturday and a free waffle brunch on Sunday. Yes, people, instead of drinking swill at the José Cuervo tent, you could go gently into that long good gay with full bellies, vitamin C, and a healthy buzz. Not ones to simply fill you up with treats alone, they also are giving out free shots of culture in the form of Queer & Now, a visual art exhibition they are co-hosting with the Queer Cultural that opens tonight and runs through July. So what the hell are you waiting for? An invitation? Oh, right…that’s’ here.
