All Aboard The Big Gay Train!


It's amazing how many of our troops that have lived in the Napa Valley for a long time but have never taken a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train.  Well, here's your chance!

Join the troops from the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar when we ride "The Big Gay Train" on Saturday, March 12, 2011

Our friends at Out in the Vineyard (that's Mark and Gary in the picture) have pulled out all the stops to ensure an evening of fun featuring delicious food as well as wine from 5 of Wine Country's fabulous gay winemakers and winery owners!
All-inclusive tickets are $125 for the "Gourmet Express" car or $150 for "Vista Dome" seating.  Out in the Vineyard will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Queen of the Valley to support HIV/AIDS services provided by the CARE Network.

Tickets can be purchased on-line at winetrain.com, by phone by calling (800) 427-4124 or at the Wine Train station (1275 McKinstry in Napa)

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 SFGate.com

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.

Fabulous Friday Afternoon at the Movies

Here's a mission for those troops that have a bit of time available during the afternoon.  We're going to the movies!

Our friends at the Cameo Cinema (1340 Main Street in St. Helena) are showing "I Love You Phillip Morris" on Friday, January 28 at 2:30 pm . . . and we're going to be there!

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 https://www.cameocinema.com/ticketing.php.

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.

Can't make it for the movie but want to join us for drinks after work?  Follow us on Twitter (NapaGayBar).  We'll send a tweet once we've landed at a place after the film.
