Shrine and Cocktail Honor Elizabeth Taylor at Her Favorite Gay Bar
Elizabeth Taylor was a frequent visitor to West Hollywood gay bar The Abbey in recent years, and the bar has set up a shrine in her name, and is planning a special this weekend, TMZ reports:
"We're told the bar's offering a special drink in Liz's memory this weekend ... and they're donating ALL the proceeds to Elizabeth's AIDS foundation. It's called the 'Blue Velvet Martini' -- which they picked in honor of her role in the 1944 hit 'National Velvet' -- and if you wanna try out their recipe ... it's made with Blue Angel vodka and blueberry schnapps. Sources at the bar tell TMZ, regulars have been adding to the shrine non-stop since Elizabeth passed -- sending flowers and gifts since yesterday morning."
