English term or phrase: entendre to chuckle at
How and why to eat, drink and socialize lying down

B.E.D. has given the normally jaded denizens of South Beach nightlife a double entendre to chuckle at for hours. Really, this restaurant-cum-lounge is the gift that keeps on giving: "IÕm going to B.E.D. with ten people tonight," and "Want to come to B.E.D. with me?" make everyone sound like randy sluts. Of course, the setting is just as sex-provoking, with futon-like mattresses dotted throughout the Washington Avenue space

Spanish translation:frase de doble sentido de la que reirse durante horas
Explanation:
"double entendre" son frases de doble sentido.
"to chuckle" = reirse de algo (Oxford Bil. Dict).
Creo que es una de las traducciones posibles, aunque, como siempre, hay muchas maneras de decir lo mismo.

Suerte con todo.

doble sentido para reírse (entre dientes)


Explanation:
"Entendre" es una palabra francesa que significa oír, escuchar, entender. Puede ser también entendido.
En este caso, se refiere al doble significado de "B.E.D". que hace que la gente se ría por el doble sentido que tiene en algunas casos, al oírla.
Quedaría entonces así:"...B.E.D. ha dado a los ciudadanos, comúnmente cínicos, de la vida nocturna de South Beach, un doble sentido para reírse durante horas."
Suerte!
