Every Little Bit Helps

"You Can Leave Your Hat On" is going to be an amazing event!  After all, when you gather the most fabulous people from the Napa Valley and it's environs you're going to have a great time!  But we're not just doing this for fun.  We're doing this to raise money for a very important cause.

The proceeds from this event will be donated to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life on behalf of the team from the Napa Valley Unity League.  While you're listening and dancing to the music of DJ Rotten Robbie and enjoying the food from Kinyon! Culinary Services please remember this - you're helping fight cancer with every dance step and every bite!

There are other ways you can help too:
  • Let your friends know about it.
  • If you're on Facebook let other folks know that you'll be there.  Our Facebook event page is at  Also feel free to "share" the event using the "Share +" button on the right-hand side of the Facebook event page.
  • We're looking for donations of wine, beer, soft drinks and water to serve at the event.  Every dollar not spent purchasing these items is one more dollar that will be donated to Relay for Life.  What will you get in return? - a complimentary VIP admission for each case donated, recognition via signage throughout the event venue and maybe even a tax deduction (please consult your tax advisor).
  • We're also looking for donations of Silent Auction items.  This is a great way to promote your business and show your support - not to mention receive a tax deduction (again, please consult your tax advisor).
If you have any questions or you're interested in donating beverages to be served or Silent Auction items to be sold please contact Mission Commander Rick via e-mail.

Thanks in advance for your help and your support!

New Tech High School Dine and Donate Events

The troops of the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar love to have fun - but they also love to take care of their community.  As a result, we wanted to let you know about a handful of fundraisers that benefit a great program here in the Napa Valley.

The mission of New Technology High School is to "prepare students to excel in an information-based, technologically advanced society."  This groundbreaking program achieves this through encouraging "students to learn through collaboration with family, business and community.  Students develop the resilience necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing world.  Their education at NTHS prepares them for lifelong learning, citizenship, and personal growth."  They learn in an "innovative and professional environment fostered by the use of advanced learning methods and technology."

It's a great program and deserves our support!

They've set up a slew of "Dine and Donate" events.  Please consider supporting the school by going out to eat at the participating merchants AND BRINGING THE APPROPRIATE FLYER (the school doesn't get credit or the donation if you don't submit the flyer when you pay your bill).

The following fundraisers are currently scheduled:
Check out the individual flyers for locations, times and details.  Let's support the kids! 

Take it Whitney . . .

Napa Valley Pride 2010 is ON IT'S WAY!

Napa Valley LGBT Pride 2010 is scheduled to run from Saturday, June 12 all the way through Sunday, June 20.  By the looks of things it could be the best celebration EVER!

In case you were wondering - the troops of the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar will be called-up and mobilized several times during the nine-day celebration.  The folks at HQ are currently gathering intelligence and developing the battle plan.

We want to make sure that our FINGERPRINT - our fabulous sense of fun and support - are included in as many events as possible this year.  The best way for that to happen is for as many of you to get involved.

And the best way to get involved is to attend a planning meeting.  The next meeting is on Tuesday, April 13 at Stonehedge Winery Tasting Room (1004 Clinton Street in Napa) from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. 

Your Mission Commander hopes to see many members of our battalion there!

TVOF Reaches the TERRIFIC Twos

It seems like just a year ago we helped The Valley's Other Fruit (the local blog for all-things LGBTQQIA) celebrate their first "Blogoversary".  Well, come to think of it - it has been a year).  Well, now we've all been invited to invade The Fruit's 2nd Anniversary Wing-Ding!

It all takes place on Thursday, April 8, but let's get the word from the Chief Fruit himself:
"Better late than never with planning, right? The Valley's Other Fruit will be celebrating two years of fruity info sharing next week with our 2nd Blogoversary! What better place to kick off the festivities than at Gott's Roadside (formerly Taylor's Refresher) at the Oxbow Public Market - 644 First Street in Napa, where we've already spent so many wonderful local's nights, pride and more?

...and, we loved their Napa Pride specials so much, we've asked for a repeat!

Show up at Gott's Roadside in Napa between 6:30p and closing (9p-ish) on Thursday, April 8 for discounted "tray gourmet":
  • foot long hot dogs
  • fish tacos
  • fries
  • $3 wine/beer
They'll also have their full menu of other great goodness: good looking people, chile spiced sweet potato fries, shakes, chicken fingers, ahi burgers and more!

For the afterparty, I'm sure we'll all stroll somewhere for cocktails and mingling, but I haven't nailed down a place yet."
The Fruit has done a great job keeping the Napa Valley and it's environs aware of all things fabulous - let's show our support!  See you there!
