Blogoversary celebration and Guerilla Gay Bar a fabulous success!

With over 50 people showing up for Monday night's Valley's Other Fruit's blogoversary celebration and Napa's Guerrilla Gay Bar, tonight was a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us and to Compadres for handling an unexpectedly big and unexpectedly queer crowd. Sure, there was a long wait for bar service, but we were a great mix of fun: both young and young-at-heart, and the back patio was perfect (and thankfully there were no incidents with big hair and those huge, Indiana-Jones-worthy tiki torches). Who knew Napa would have something going on--and on a Monday night, no less?

Bummer that I got stuck with a $28 tab for the one margarita I purchased--apparently some in our group dined-and-ditched (you know who you are--quesadilla platter and two margaritas!). But I wouldn't let that ruin the evening.

The banner (Larry), the cake (Kim & Traci), the rainbow peeps and the help with getting the word out (Rick, et. al)... thanks to all who made it a fabulous evening and for sharing in what truly was a community celebration and a celebration of our community.

Here's to many years ahead for The Valley's Other Fruit.

...we'll publish a slide-show of photos, so send yours in, too (and I still want to know who was grabbing my ass in the group shot)!


  1. Thanks to all who contributed to making last night a great gathering. What a fun time! So many warm and friendly people at both the Unity League mixer and the bar party afterwards. I must get out more often. Sorry to hear someone stiffed you, and not in a good way. Hope they have a conscience and do the right thing, even if a bit late. I hope it doesn't put a damper on what was a wonderful evening. Looking forward to the next one already. And congratualtions again on your anniversary. Keep being the great guy you are.

  2. Thanks for the great night! It's amazing and encouraging to see a great group of people in Napa. I know Compadres was happy to have us! look forward to the next event.
