On Friday night, I went to the Silver Fox with a friend, and we were very happy to see so many new faces. The vibe was great here...hot local guys, friendly sexy strangers, and cheap drinks all helped to make it one of those nights where you say to yourself: "Damn, I love being a Fag (or whatever is P.C. nowadays)". Also, my favorite bartender at the Fox, an older gent, was in the house....and he makes my Cosmos just right.
On Saturday morning, I got my haircut, and then I spent most of the day at my folk's house, to drop off my Mama's Mother's Day gift (they were out of town that weekend, so bite me). The plan for Saturday night was to go bar hopping with my gay BFF, after we got a light snack at a local tapas/wine restaurant (Biggs in Belmont Shore)...but things didn't go as planned.
First, the tapas joint was closed for renovations. Second, ALL of the gay bars had ridiculous lines, that had me baffled, as to how they were planning on getting all of them gay people inside. None of the gay bars in LB are anywhere near what'd be considered 'big'. Anyhoo, it was getting late, and I really wanted to get my drink on...so we ended up at House of Hayden (downtown LB)....no, it's not a competitive Voguing "house", it's a real place that serves booze.....and it's also STRAIGHT...Gasp! Right when we walked through the front door, the men all paused my 2 brothers called to say "surprise, we're in Long Beach, wanna hang out?"....I guess it was good karma that we ended up in a straight bar....quick recap: bros & their entourage were great fun....many many laughs & way too many drinks were had by all.
Sunday morning I watched the Pride Parade march up Ocean Blvd. The organizers did a pretty good job this year (especially in regards to pace), but if I could make a suggestion it'd be: less politicians and more go-go boys please. (Note to self: always remember to charge the camera's batteries the night before you plan on using it.) Then it was back home for the usual masturbation marathon clean house/do laundry/prep for the upcoming week.
This weekend wasn't all fun and games...it was also an educational one. Here's what I learned:
- Three Cosmos (on top of 2 glasses of wine and a whiskey sour) gives me a headache in the morning...next time, stop at 2 Cosmos.
- Never ever say to your hairdresser: "I'm wanting a new look...why don't you try something new...surprise me"....I walked out of the salon looking like a sad reject from a Miami Vice extra casting call...slicked back hair, plastered to my head is so not cute.
- Straight bars can actually be a lot of fun, and drinks are cheaper than the homo bars that I haunt.
- A combination of Shout stain remover & bleach is a very effective way to remove skid marks from your chonies.
That's about it...now get back to work people!
