Is being gay bad feng shui?
Asian-fusion restaurant, Amber Village, allegedly thinks so according to a lawsuit filed by newlyweds Barrett Greene and Thomas Eng in New York City after their rehearsal dinner was cancelled because apparently gay parties are "especially bad for feng shui."
You know, the flow of energy in a space? Is this some sort of commentary on the snark and shade that the gays are known to throw, because we acknowledge it can change the energy of a room, but not enough to cancel a rehearsal dinner!

Just when we thought Denny’s was a safe place for us, what with their chardonnay and their “Fit Fare,” leave it to another disgruntled homophobe to ruin a meal. Such is the case with a man who was just sentenced for attacking a waiter whom he believed to be gay at a Santa Maria, California Denny’s.

Rolling Stone is scheduled to venture into brick and mortar (and disco balls) starting next summer with the launch of a Rolling Stone brand restaurant and nightclub at Hollywood and Highland in Los Angeles.
From the LA Times:
Rolling Stone is about to take a leap into the entertainment industry, starting with a large-scale restaurant and nightclub in Hollywood.
Owners of the venerable magazine hope to leverage its status as a preeminent chronicler of the rock music world and pop culture into a new business built on food and drinks. The first Rolling Stone outpost is set to open next summer at Hollywood & Highland Center.
Imagine if Instinct opened a restaurant/club in West Hollywood...FULL STORY
