[Update, April 19, 2010: Looking for info about this year's T-dance in Sonoma? Click here. The rest of this post is about 2009's T-dance, at Beringer in Napa. It was amazing!]

Looks like one of the major events at Napa's 2009 Pride will be this Twilight T-Dance at Beringer. What's a T-Dance, you ask?
A tea dance or, thé dansant (French: literally dancing tea), is an afternoon or early-evening dance....This term--sometimes spelled T-dance--is also used within gay culture to designate similar dances: particularly those held on weekends (especially Sunday evenings) in night clubs, or at the end of the day at gay resorts (usually beside a pool). A live DJ typically plays recorded club music at these tea dances. It originated at the Blue Whale hotel/club/restaurant on Fire Island, NY, as a way to entice visitors to spend additional time (and money) before taking the Ferry back to the mainland to prepare for their workweek.
Don't worry, I had to look it up, too. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday. I'll post a link as soon as I find it.

Also, this is only one of the handful of events coming up for Napa Valley Pride 2009, on Saturday, June 20. More details, soon.
