    Prime Timers of Phoenix Was Lots of Fun!
    I marched with Prime Timers of Phoenix years ago in the Gay Pride Parade. What a great bunch of guys! Glad to see that they are still around. I'm in a wheelchair now and can no longer get to their many & varied events. But, I bet they remain decent, fun loving, swell-looking gents.

    A Very Worthy Lunch is Served
    We arrived at 11 AM, and were immediately greeted by delightful staff who took constant good care of us. Nice ambiance. Adequate menu. Not too pricey. My partner used a walker, for which they made quick accommodation. As we soothed our parched throats with cold elixirs, and downed our plates of Mexican-American fare, we people-watched. Ever so eclectic, individuals, couples, families and groups joined us in the pleasant dining room. As we left, we saw lots of folks on the patio, obviously having a grand old time. We have not returned, but we want to soon. Next visit will be for the evening meal. Don't like Straights where you eat? Then don't go here.

    Was Going to BS Long Before it Was BS - Still Nice
    My boyfriends and I formerly ate great meals at this always-a-gay-bar location. It changed names and owners over the years, since 1984, and has not been a restaurant for a long time, now. The current genre is very good. As I assume the rank of Gay Senior Citizen, I continue to find really nice guys of my own age, just as I always did - and lots of youthful eye candy. Their 2-for-1 beverage event helps keep visiting there affordable. Not "upscale", like most of Scottsdale, staff and patrons remain some of the friendliest around. No matter where you live, BS is well worth the trip. We enjoy some of Scottsdale's fine dining, then retire to BS for good times and an enjoyable end of a gay day.

    Discrimination of those in wheelchairs/scooters?
    Before the big remodel, I enjoyed the restaurant - nice atmosphere, good Mexican fare. Bartender was delightful; so were most patrons. Employee told me that elevator does not go to rooftop bar. Patrons must walk a flight up. What about folks in wheelchairs/scooters? Say it ain't so, Clarendon! If so, I say "skip it". Call ADA.
