1/27/2012: Thank you for being a friend!

Hi boys,

This Friday will will discuss friendships in our gay lives. Is your best friend another gay boy, a fag hag, a straight boy or even (surprise!) a lesbian? Do you compartmentalize your gay and straight friends and share only certain topics with each one? Do you and your friends act more like characters from the Golden Girls, Friends, Will & Grace or Queer As Folk? (To get a glimpse of which characters other guys identify with, check out the TV polls on our Facebook page.)

We will talk about this and all of the other things that make our friends special to us (both as gay men and people). Plus, who knows? You may expand your circle of friends with new ones you meet on Friday!

After dinner we will navigate the city for food! As Always, discussion will be held at St. Margaret’s Episcopalian Church, 1830 Connecticut Avenue, NW Discussions starts at 8:30 PM. Can’t wait to see you all Friday!


01/20/2012 – Dating 2.0

Hey Boy-sicles!

Throughout the annals (HA!) of history Man has been on a never ending
quest for camaraderie and companionship. As the course of history has
changed so have our methods of joining together and exploring the
dark, treacherous and mine laden world of…DATING!

Join us this Friday as we discuss dating in the world of technology.
Do the rules of a common meetup date apply when you’ve been
corresponding online for a month? Can a Grindr hook-up lead to
matrimony? Is Plenty Of Fish REALLY a dating site or is it just a
euphemism for disappointment in the dating world? Is monogamy
something a dating relationship should inevitably lead to? How can you
sustain a committed relationship after you’ve been wading in the
“friend” zone for so long? How much information should your online
profile have and what is considered an over-share? Are you in fact
dating a Decepticon or is Skynet using you to acclimate itself to the
human experience in hopes of better understanding it’s prey? Have you
traversed these waters for so long you know it like the back of the
hand of that guy you used to date who liked it rough; well join us and
bring your know how to the discussion!

After dinner we will navigate the city for food an drink!

As Always, discussion will be held at St. Margaret’s Episcopalian
Church, 1830 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Discussions starts at 8:30pm and if you need any further directions

1/13 Event: GAYMER TAKEOVER of Dave & Buster’s

Time to get out of the house, nerds!

Now only a bit more than a week away, we’re fast approaching our next event–Gay District is invading Dave & Buster’s!

Come meet us at the White Flint metro platform/gates around 8:15 if you want to walk over with the group, or if you’re driving, just plan on arriving at D&B’s around 8:30p. Dave & Buster’s is located within the White Flint Mall at 11301 Rockville Pike, in what is geographically known as North Bethesda. Metro riders rest assured: though this is in Maryland, it’s only a 10-minute straight-shot walk due south from the metro station.

Come with friends, socially awkward zombie-shooting fiends, and all the gays  you can coerce or kidnap to take advantage of discounted prices when you purchase Powercard credit (their version of tokens) in larger quantities.

Stick around with us and enjoy their very-girly-for-an-arcade house drinks, and totally-straight-acting scotch and beer selections, and various fried artery-bomb appetizers. Pool your tickets (or trade them for 1-ups in the bathroom stall) to win better prizes–I personally will be doing my damnedest to win me a Dave & Buster’s emblazoned toaster!

Do note that this will take the place of our regularly scheduled discussion, so please don’t go looking for us at St. Margaret’s.

Make certain to let us know how many to expect by RSVPing on the Facebook event here.

For more information, including menu information, Powercard prices, and directions, visit the Dave & Buster’s website or simply ask any of your near and dear Gay District facilitators, Justin, Sean, Jay or Luke.
