Mission: Luck O' The Irish to Twin Pine Casino

Sure and Begorrah we're going to have a great time . . . and that's no blarney!

Join the troops of the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar as we head north on a private executive coach from Napa to the hamlet of Middletown, California. There we'll spend the afternoon of St. Patrick's Day (Saturday, March 17) taking advantage of the luck of the Irish at Twin Pine Casino.

We'll meet in the south parking lot of Oxbow Public Market. There we'll board our executive coach provided by our friends at Beau Wine Tours & Limousine Service. While aboard we'll enjoy Irish libations, goodies and games.

Upon return we'll invade Kitchen Door (610 First Street, Napa - Oxbow Public Market) for a no-host dinner - fabulous Irish specials or anything else on the menu!

Cost for coach service to and from Twin Pine, food & beverages on the coach and gratuity? Just $30 per person!

Space is limited to 36. Tickets are available via the PayPal link at irish.napagaybar.com or directly from Mission Commander Rick.

What Super Bowl? III

Will it be the Giants or the Patriots?


It's that time again . . . time for the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar's 3rd Annual "What Super Bowl?" Party!

Let's face it - not everyone gets into football - especially when the local teams aren't playing (and especially after one local team lost by a field goal in overtime!). Instead of feigning interest in this northeastern clash, 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 III" on Sunday, February 5.

We'll kick-off our celebration at 3:00 pm (30 minutes before the scheduled kick-off Super Bowl XLVI in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis).

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", "Giants" or "Patriots", 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.
