A Florida elementary school is under fire after taking grade-school kids on a field trip to a gay bar – one that offers sexual pun-laden menu items such as Rhoda Cowboy and Ivana Hooker. 

Broward County school board member Sarah Leonardi shared photos to social media of a group of children from Fort Lauderdale’s Wilton Manors Elementary School at Rosie’s Bar and Grill, a famed LGBT hangout. 

‘I was SO honored to be invited to chaperone Wilton Manors Elementary’s field trip to the incredible Rosie’s! The students and I had a fun walk over and learned a lot about our community! A huge thank you to Rosie’s Bar and Grill for hosting this special field trip every year!’ Leonardi posted to Twitter and Facebook on Thursday.

Commenters quickly questioned whether a bar, gay or not, is any place to take young children on a field trip in the first place.  

‘Regardless if it’s a gay bar or not….it’s a bar!! Why are kids going on a field trip TO A BAR?!?!,’ one Twitter user posted.

‘Could honestly care less if the establishment was “gay” or whatever WHY A BAR OF ALL THINGS,’ someone else tweeted. 

Leonardi shared a picture of about a dozen kids posing in front of the restaurant sign on a lawn

‘I assume that their field trips like our field trips have to have a request submitted giving the details of the trip as well as educational value. That being said… this was inappropriate and many should be held responsible including those who gave it approval,’ another wrote. 

The children were pictured inside the bar, which features rainbow-colored décor and the raunchy menu items that also include Naked Sweaty Lovin’ chicken tenders that are ‘marinated in Rosie’s own “Smack My Cheeks and Make ‘em Rosy” sauce.’ 

‘Whether you come for lunch or dinner, for Sunday Funday Brunch or for just a few drinks… whether you are LBGTQ+ or an ally…whether you are local or visiting… whether you come with a group or venture out solo… you will have a memorable experience with the most talented crew in South Florida,’ the bar and grill writes on it’s website. 

‘Rosie’s is the place to see…and be seen!,’ the description added.   

Leonardi also shared pictures of about a dozen kids posing in front of the restaurant sign on a lawn as well as kids coloring in a pumpkin with the bar and grill logo at the restaurant.

‘Explain yourselves Broward County Schools. This is egregious,’ another Twitter user demanded. 

Rosie's Bar and Grill, which opened in 2006, is located in Wilton Manors and operates during the day as a restaurant that also serves alcohol
