Scandals Saloon is a Country/Western Gay bar in Wilton Manors, FL, city with the second highest LGBTQ population in the USA. Every Monday night they host a Drag Queen show called 'Stilettos' on the main dance floor, at the same time as a Cigar Smokers Social in the patio. 'Monday Night Scandals' seeks to document the indoor and outdoor atmospheres of this location, portraying diverse and colorful characters that see this bar as the perfect way to kick the Monday blues away, drinking cocktails, talking to the bartenders, interacting with the performers, and smoking cigars. Scandals is scheduled to move to a new location in 2018, with no set date, and the memories of this location hopefully will carry on to the new venue. Starring Bubba, Bill Vanderhoof, Candy Cox, Mitzi Ross, Patrick Drake, and the usual Monday Night suspects.
