Dearest Cincinnati Queers and Queer-lovers,
April's Guerrilla Queer Bar has arrived--on Good Friday, no less--so, it's time to dust off your rosaries! This month's theme:
"Bad Friday: Eat Meat...and Fish."
Now, for all the sexy details:
We're taking over O'BRYONVILLE! It's a quaint little neighborhood south of Hyde Park just waiting to be sprinkled with our queer-tastic fairy dust.
The night will begin at Balboa's (2038 Madison Road). "Strong Islands" are $5, domestic bottles are $2.50 and Bud and Miller Light drafts are $2.50. Rainbow Jell-O shots will be $2. Balboa's' kitchen will be open until 11:30 for those of you coming with both a thirst and hunger for some grub. You can arrive as early as 8:00 p.m. for dinner or snacks.
Balboa's is also letting CGQB handle the music, so expect a good variety of gay favorites, hip-hop and danceable beats.
Around 12:30, we will parade down Madison Rd. to O'bryon's Irish Pub (1998 Madison Rd.). O'bryon's is in serious need of some queer magic. Let's make this month's CGQB a magical and memorable experience for O'bryon's and its regulars.
Following these bar takeovers, there will be a HARDCORE AFTER-PARTY at the home of Michael Koop, Deontre Martin, Jarvis Taylor and Jason Boeckman ("Friend request" them on Facebook; they want to be your friend).
3024 Cohoon Street
Cincinnati, OH 45208
Their house sits right next to O'bryonville's public parking lot. Park in this lot at the beginning of the evening. Cars may remain overnight. O'bryonville may advertise a cost to park in this lot, but in the year Mike, D., J.D. and Jason have lived there, no one has ever monitored this parking lot.
The after-party will include beautiful people, plenty drinking and music courtesy two Indianapolis DJs. Some mixers will be on hand, but if you plan to attend this after-party, please bring drinks at the beginning of the evening to cool in the refrigerator or freezer. The house will be open and a roommate will be there to welcome you. The party will go as late as you can last.
This is going to be the Cincinnati Guerrilla Queer Bar of the century! Be there, or Jesus will hate you.
ps. Also! GLSEN, the glorious, is having their annual PROM on April 24th! Here are some lovely details:
