Every Friday, there are hundreds of guys lined up in front of Badlands. What's wrong with this picture? Well, let's see... lots of fags waiting to get into a crowded bar where they will get to experience the same scene they experienced last time they were there, complete with the same music, same videos, same neon, same, same, same.
We boys at Guerrilla Queer Bar have a remedy for this situation, the logical solution to our celebratory wanderlust, a refreshing and simple idea that we think you might like.Take a pack of fun people to an altogether different bar that may or may not be expecting us. Why limit ourselves to the Castro (yawn) and South of Market? Alcohol is distributed all over town kids!
Guerrilla Queer Bar will serve as the coordinating point for these outings, chiefly through our email list (use the form below to sign up). Email messages announcing the next destination and date will be irregular, fairly brief, and typically on short notice. The email list will not be used to promote commercial events, nor will it degenerate into an every-event-in-a-warehouse type list.
So let's all meet out, warm some new barstools with our scrumptious, firm butts, and see what kind of trouble we can get into. For the record, our general attitude about the appropriate way to comport ourselves was summed up nicely by cultural critic, philosopher and partyboy Walter Benjamin back in 1938.
"I at once appropriated for myself the Kafkaesque formulation of the categorical imperative: 'Act in such a way that the angels have something to do.'"
Isn't that just disco? Well , we'll be in touch (and I don't mean N'Touch' sweetie).
