L Word Party Sunday Night

Did you know the Firehouse Lounge was lesbian-friendly?  I never thought about it one way or another.  My class president was considering it for our 20th year reunion, but we went another direction.  Maybe that's too bad …anyway, if you want to hang out and watch the L-word, maybe this is an option.  Let me […]

Tonight, Ledcat and I sipped coffee and ooh la la'd with none other than Ms. Monongahela, Ms. Chief Editor.  We reconnoitered at a local coffeehouse.

What’s Going On? Bingo. Not Much Otherwise

“That's a good thing, right?” responds Ledcat to my plaintive wail that there is nothing to blog about.  “No one is smearing local bar owners or other crap like that, right?” She's got a point.  OUTrageous Bingo is debuting at its new Oakland home of Rodef Shalom.  7 PM Saturday.  Be there or be (an […]
