The celebration will be a family-style sit-down affair. Please RSVP by Thursday, August 25 so we can make sure the restaurant has enough food for everyone. You can either use the Facebook event page or let us know through the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar RSVP email address (rsvp(at)

How do you dress for such a celebration? You can always come casual but if you really want to get into the swing you might consider pulling that sarong, batik or Hawaiian shirt out of the closet!
