“New, Chic LGBT Night in Chapel Hill”
Prepare to transform your Tuesday.
Lantern in Chapel Hill is teaming up with Jermaine Landon Events and joining the LGBT social circuit with their weekly Tuesday event, The T — a chic, unparalleled night that will bring together an eclectic group of people and add a new level of vibrancy to the area’s nightlife.
The T, beginning April 27 at 10 p.m., invites local movers and shakers to come socialize in one of the best bars in Chapel Hill while the night delivers a delicious combination of unique Lantern cocktails (offered at a special price) and a mix of fabulous music to add to the already outstanding aura of the establishment.
Why “The T”? It’s simple. “The T” is a term used by the gay and lesbian community to mean “the talk of the town.” And Jermaine Landon thinks this weekly event is guaranteed to be the talk of the town, the LGBT community, and beyond. It will transform your Tuesday and momentarily transport you out of Chapel Hill.
The T is the third LGBT social Jermaine Landon Events hosts in Chapel Hill. STIR at East End Martini Bar, a hugely popular Sunday night dance party, is in its third year. Unwind, a midtempo and more lounge-like event, is held at Fuse every Wednesday and has been around since June of 2009.
Lantern is located at 423 West Franklin Street in downtown Chapel Hill. The bar entrance is behind the restaurant. The T is for those who are 21 years old and up.

A UNC-Chapel Hill freshman who told police he was attacked by a man who burned his hand and called him an anti-gay slur made a false report, the university says. In a message just released to the campus community, Chancellor Holden Thorp says: “The Department of Public Safety has determined that the alleged aggravated assault reported to campus last night did not occur. That report, filed with campus police on April 5, was false. The University will not report it as a hate crime.” “It is important to recognize that incidents of harassment do occur,” Thorp continued. “When they do, we take them seriously. We strive to foster a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment at Carolina.
