Yummy food, great view, reasonable price...
Great food at a reasonable price. And the views of all the gay boys gives you plenty to look at. A nice place in the gayborhood.
Upscale Home Furnishings / Gadgets on Capitol Hill
Homebody is a cute upscale furnishings shop on Eight Street SE (Barracks Row) on Capitol Hill. Run by two lesbians, there is a nice selection of cards, candles, and kitchen supplies / gadgets. In addition, they have a modern furniture selection (think Design Within Reach, only slightly more in reach). If you're in the neighborhood you should definitely stop by and say hello.
Unassuming and relaxing...
A nice place to grab a drink with a friend. Mostly older crowd. Great bartenders that pour hard. Nice place to have a drink after work with friends or to meet some new ones...
Community hub on Capitol Hill
It is rare that you see such a mix of people in one restaurant in DC. A gay institution (and gay owned), there are always some gay boys in here at any time. In addition, an eclectic mix of neighborhood locals, families, and people that have been dining here for 30 years. A wonderful place to grab a burger, have a drink, or sit out on the patio and read when its sunny outside.
Best Italian in the gayborhood...
Best authentic italian food in the city by far. The anti-pasti plates are amazing- and the servers can make suggestions about which meats go best with each cheese. Extensive wine bar selection. It can be a little pricey- but the view sitting on the patio out front on a summer night surely is worth the price.
It is rare that you find a resort that gets it all right- but if you stumble onto the Hacienda- you have stumbled onto perfection. The rooms are beautiful- huge comfortable beds - flat screen tvs - great DVD collection - a kitchenette with a welcome basket. The two pools are perfectly heated and the view of the mountains as you lounge by the pool all day are magical. Breakfast and lunch are included in your rate - and it is nice to not have to leave at all during the day - just relax and relax some more. The owners and staff go beyond the pale in making sure every part of your experience is beyond phenomenal. Easily the best place to stay in Palm Springs- and clothing optional to boot.
A little dated, but pleasant
The rooms are a little dated, but the resort itself is quite pleasant- and worth the price you pay. The grounds are beautiful- the pool heated and the dry and wet saunas a nice extra touch. The breakfast is disappointing (cheapest oj possible) but once again for the price you pay - ($150 a night) you're still getting your money's worth. Older crowd mostly and very friendly staff.
Karaoke on Sundays
Karaoke Sunday was a lot of fun. Also do musical nights there- which I never thought I would enjoy- but there is something very zen about being in a crowded bar of gay folks as people are singing along to musical numbers I have never heard of.
A friendly leather bar
As a frequent visitor to Palm Springs- I find the Tool Shed to be one of the friendliest bars in the desert. The bartender, Charlie, remembers my drink, even after its been months since my last visit. Easy to strike up a conversation with another guy- and an interesting array of men to boot.
Cocktail Creations on the Edge of Capitol Hill
This bar has a french / north african theme- think paris meets morocco with a thievery corporation soundtrack. great cocktails - friendly atmosphere - absinthe bar as well - and the crowd is generally 50 / 50 gay straight. A star in the up and coming new hill east... worth a trip.
