Let’s admit it. For many long-out LGBT grown ups, Pride Weekend presents a conundrum. Over the decades, we’ve spent hours of curbside time not only cheering on the Dykes on Bikes, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and a handful of fabulous floats, but also yawning our way through visually lackluster and seemingly endless contingents of Gay Parakeet Afficionados, Republican Lesbian Javelin Throwers, Second Cousins of Transgendered Podiatrists, ad infinitum.
The lipsmacking Little Hot Mess, served at cityhouse.
Proud as we are of our community’s diversity, standing in a crowd to watch it go by can get tired year after year. Yet skipping the parade doesn’t feel like quite the right option.
The Agenda’s recommendation is a reservation for lunch and cocktails at cityhouse, the swanky second floor bar and restaurant at the Parc 55 hotel (Market and Cyril Magnin).
