Napa IPA Day Celebration to Benefit V.O.I.C.E.S.

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."  (Dave Barry, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist)

On Thursday August 4th, thousands of craft beer lovers across the globe and across the social media sphere will raise pints in a collective toast to one of craft beer's most iconic styles, the India Pale Ale, during International #IPADay 2011.

And don't think that just because we're in the middle of wine country that we'd miss out on the opportunity to toast with hops instead of grapes!  What is being billed as "the largest IPA Day celebration in Northern California (and quite possibly the whole west coast)" will take place at the Marriott Napa Valley Hotel & Spa (3425 Solano Avenue, Napa) on August 4 from 5 to 8 pm.

Tickets are just $10 per person.  For that sawbuck you'll enjoy a myriad of delicious IPAs from over 10 local craft breweries.

And as if delicious beer wasn't enough, all proceeds from the festival will be donated to V.O.I.C.E.S. Napa to support their work empowering under-served youth in our community.  Tickets are available on-line at :

Pre and Post Porchfest Functions

It's out of the garage and onto the porch!  It's Napa Porchfest 2011!

What is Napa Porchfest?  A different group of Napa musicians will be performing on the front porches of homes throughout Downtown neighborhoods on the same day (Sunday, July 31) at the same time (2 to 5 pm).  You pick and choose the ones you want to go hear. You "bike, drive, walk, skip, roller skate, skate board, pedibike or fly from porch to porch much like you would cruise from studio to studio during the Open Studio events".  Bring beach chairs and coolers . . . and be prepared for a great afternoon of music from Alta Heights to the alphabet streets!

Here's the plan - we'll meet at Alexis Baking Company (1517 Third Street, Napa) for a delicious brunch (including Alexis' famous Huevos Rancheros and baked goods) starting at 12:30 pm.  While there we'll compare notes and create our mission plan.  Some of us may pick one artist and head toward that porch around 1:45.  Others may want to experience a potpourri of musical magic and plan a route to follow during the three hour event.

At the conclusion of Porchfest at 5 pm we'll head over to Carpe Diem Wine Bar (1001 Second Street, Napa) to compare notes, share pictures/videos and enjoy Carpe Diem's outstanding food and beverages (we'll even be there in time for Happy Hour!)

It's going to be a great afternoon of music, food, beverages and good ol' Napa Guerilla Gay Bar camaraderie.  Join us!

It Gets Better!

It gets better!  There's no doubt about it!  Let's make sure that the kids attending Napa Valley's high schools know that too!

The Napa Guerilla Gay Bar is starting a project called "It Gets Better - Napa Valley".  Our aim is to put a copy of "It Gets Better:  Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living" in every high school library in the Napa Valley.  In fact, we want to place at least one copy on the shelves for every 150 students.  With 7,500 kids attending the Valley' high schools that means we'll need at least 50 copies.

So, here's how you can help.  Just follow this link:

That will take you our wish list.  Buy one or more copies and either have them shipped directly to us or bring them to any Napa Guerilla Gay Bar event.  We'll gather them all up and deliver them directly to the schools - all the way from American Canyon to Calistoga!

Band Geeks Unite!

"I would teach the children music, physics and philosophy, but the most important is music - for in music is the patterns of the arts and key to all understanding."
                             - Plato
Military organizations have always depended upon music.  "Reveille" is played on the bugle every morning while "Taps" is played every evening.  Marches would lead forces into battle and full bands would help troops celebrate victories or comfort them in defeat.

For many of us, including your mission commander (he played bass clarinet in the junior high school band), music played a huge part in our growing up.  We carried our trumpet or trombone to school (uphill, both ways, in the snow).  We stashed our violins in our lockers before lunch.  We'd practice every afternoon or evening when we'd rather be out with our friends.  Most of all, we learned discipline, working as team, commitment and fractions (you can't play a waltz if you don't understand 3/4 time!)

Why are we telling you this?  Well, budget cuts are forcing the Napa Valley Unified School District to make some hard choices.  The Napa Valley Education Foundation (NVEF) wants to make sure that music survives the chopping block.  They're conducting a campaign to raise funds to ensure that over 1,300 school-aged children can continue to participate in school music programs.

So, why is this important?  Studies have shown that students involved in music programs have a higher level of self-esteem, which is the main predictor of resilience to substance abuse and other negative behaviors.  Music programs teach and engage students so they are more successful in learning other subjects.

Here's how you can help - consider making a donation of any amount to the Napa Valley Education Foundation on behalf of the "Campaign to Sustain Music for our Children".  This money will go directly to plug any holes in music program budgets.

You can make a donation using your credit card or PayPal account by visiting:

The above link will take you to the NVEF's web page for the campaign.  You'll see the "Donate" link in the lower left-hand side of the page.

To make things a little more interesting - for every member of the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar that donates $5.00 or more to sustain music in Napa Valley schools your mission commander will donate $5.00 up to a total of $500.00.  Just drop him a note via this link to tell him that you've made the contribution.  No need to say how much you donated - just donate 5 bucks or more.

The Napa community prides itself on being a world-class destination with world-class wines.  Our kids deserve a musical education as good as that wine!

What Super Bowl? Party II

Will it be the Steelers or the Seahawks?  The Patriots or the Packers?  The Colts or the Bears?


It's that time again . . . time for the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar's 2nd Annual "What Super Bowl?" Party!

Let's face it - not everyone gets into football - especially when the local teams aren't playing.  Instead of feigning interest, why not go some place where the mention of "football" or "the Super Bowl" are actually frowned upon.

So, join us again this year at Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin' BBQ (975 First Street in Napa) for the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar's "What Super Bowl? Party II" on Sunday, February 6.

We'll kick-off our celebration at 3:00 pm (35 minutes before the scheduled kick-off Super Bowl XLV in Cowboys Stadium).

Bounty Hunter has an outstanding wine list and fabulous food including appetizers, soups, salads and sandwiches - not to mention their amazing "Signature Items" which include:
  • Beer Can Chicken
  • Kobe Beef Sliders
  • Chef's Seafood Special
  • Smokin' St. Louis Cut Ribs
  • The 40-ounce(!) Cowboy Ribeye Steak
And don't forget - Bounty Hunter was named "Best Wine Bar in the Bay Area" for both 2009 AND 2010 by the readers of

For a little added fun we'll make the following rule:
  • Every time someone utters the words "Football", "First Down", "Penalty", "Super Bowl" or the names of either team playing in Super Bowl XLV, said utterer will be required to put 1 US Dollar ($1.00) in "The Bucket".
  • At the end of the event all monies from "The Bucket" will be donated to The Trevor Project - a group "determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including (a) nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention life, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone".
This event, like all Napa Guerilla Gay Bar events, is open to EVERYONE - the only requirement is to treat fellow participants (troops), other patrons, the facility and its management and employees with respect.

The film is based on the 1980's and 1990's real-life story of con artist, impostor and multiple prison escapee Steven Jay Russell (played by Jim Carrey).  While incarcerated, Russell falls in love with his fellow inmate, Phillip Morris (played by Ewan McGregor).  After Morris is released from prison, Russell escapes from prison four times in order to be reunited with Morris. 

Here's a taste:

Tickets are just $5.00 and can be purchased at the door or on-line at

Following the film we'll head down Main Street and visit one of St. Helena's popular watering holes for post-cinema cocktails, appetizers and discussion.
