Now open: Lush

itemprop reports that Lush, a new gay bar, opened Friday on Central Ave. in Northeast. Co-owner Ty Hoffman tells the paper that he hopes the "video bar" will "cultivate a crowd that comes out earlier, wants to relax and is open to avant-garde entertainment." There will also be food, under the direction of Chef Karla Schmitt. In addition to a champagne brunch, says Schmitt mentions "a steak cobb salad, mini angus burgers, calamari and a mean BLT."
