Police have issued a warning after three incidents at gay nightclubs in London over the weekend, Pink News reports:

AreaA man is known to have collapsed at Area Club in the early hours of Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at 5am. A second man collapsed at the same club while a third was taken ill at Barcode. The latter two have been hospitalised.

The first two men were found with a so-far unidentified white powder.

The cause of death has not been ascertained but police have issued a warning to anyone considering using drugs at Vauxhall. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police urge any recreational drug users to be extremely careful if they are considering using drugs of any sort, in particular at venues in the Vauxhall area. Lambeth officers are appealing for anyone who can assist with enquiries to come forward as soon as possible. A quick response could help us prevent contaminated drugs circulating further and may save someone’s life.”


Is It Unusual For Straight Guys To Frequent Gay Bars?

Gaybar2A newlywed woman wrote to Dear Abby to ask whether she should be worried that her fit and attractive husband is hanging out with the gays at drinking establishments.

Dan has been going out with Harry to gay bars where he gets “hit on” often. I can tell he likes the attention. I should also mention that Dan seems to be considerably less interested in sex lately.

His going to gay bars every night is beginning to worry me. If I say anything to him about it, he guilt-trips me about my travel.

Is it normal for a straight man to seek out the company of gay men?

Abby replies: "It is unusual for a straight man to frequent gay bars. But would you feel better if Dan were going to straight bars every night and being hit on by women while you’re away?"

Just because a man hangs out at a gay bar does not mean he is into guys, okay? Some of my best-friends are straight, and, yes, they venture out to the homo pubs with me. Never have they been "turned." And if this "Dan" is indeed of the gay variety, it's not because he's chilling at gay bars.

NYC's Former Limelight Nightclub is Becoming an IHOP

Limelight_IHOP

New York's famed former Limelight nightclub is becoming an International House of Pancakes.

The Real Deal writes:

Retail broker Gene Spiegelman, an executive director at Cushman & Wakefield, said IHOP should thrive in New York City as Chock Full o'Nuts and fast-food chain Nedick's once did. 

"I can see the value of putting a 24-hour, seven-day, value-priced restaurant near subways, near schools. I think the location at Sixth [Avenue] and 20th [Street] is a great location," but, Spiegelman added, "The real estate is odd [because] the physical nature of the building is not traditional for an IHOP." 

The old Limelight is the subject of a new documentary from Magnolia Pictures.
