Another of Chelsea's rather garish sex-toy and porn stores, the Blue Store (206 8th Ave.) has garnered its share of bad press since it opened nearly a decade ago, first stirring the ire of neighbors who complained about its relentless blue-neon facade and the neighborhood's seeming excess of such establishments. Then a couple of years ago cops shuttered the place for following a prostitution sting. The store has cleaned up its act some and is now a great source of gay erotica, lube, and such. Page 17.

An attractive, well-designed, and clean private gay men's club in Tampa's most historic neighborhood, Ybor Resort and Spa (1512 E. 8th Ave., 813-242-0900) is one of Florida's premier gay saunas and bathhouses, and following the closing of Club Tampa Baths, it's the only such facility in the Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg region.

Queen's Surf gay beach, Waikiki
By far the most popular gay beach in Hawaii, and one of the most scenic and well-known in the world, Queen's Surf Beach is a relatively secluded stretch of sand in the heart of Waikiki, but along a section with no direct hotel frontage - this accounts for the fact there's more privacy and fewer families here than to the north or south. The beach here draws a mostly gay-male crowd, although certainly not exclusively so, as plenty of lesbians and straights seeking seclusion tan their hides here.

The regional chain has eight locales, and the one pictured here, on University Avenue in the western edge of North Park (very close to Hillcrest) tends to draw the highest percentage of GLBT customers. The selection of gay videos and mags is actually marginal - it's more hetero. But this is still a reliable place to stock up on lube, toys, condoms. Page 34.

Flamingo Resort, St. Petersburg, Florida
One of the largest gay resorts in the country, the Flamingo is not only one of the best GLBT lodging options in St. Petersburg, it's a very fun place to party - whether you're a hotel guest or just dropping by to drink cocktails by the pool in the Cabana Bar, mingle in the Video Bar, dance and watch male strippers in the Blu Room, or attend one of the popular gay pool parties, Sunday T-Dances, or after-hours parties. In short, there's nearly always something interesting going on at the Flamingo. Page 43.
