Kiss the Cook 

You bring the meat - the bar takes care of everything else.

Every Thursday night this summer, the gay bar Adams Street fires up its outdoor grills for Chillin' & Grillin'. Patrons bring their favorite meat, and the bar does the work. At first, the club encouraged folks to bring hamburgers and hot dogs, but that got boring, says bartender Adam Vicens. "They've been bringing in mostly steaks, pork chops, and chicken breasts," he says. "We've seen some pretty interesting things."

After customers tell a bartenders how they want their meat cooked, he tags it and hands it over to Chef Mike (who doubles as the bar's Sunday-night DJ). Once the food is grilled, a bartender serves it with several free side dishes, including corn on the cob, salad, and baked potatoes. "If you bring in a piece of meat, have a few drinks, and enjoy the atmosphere, then we will supply the rest," says Vicens. "It's just a great way to enjoy happy hour."
Thursdays, 5-8 p.m. Starts: July 6. Continues through Aug. 31
