Coming To Town: Scarlet's 10th Anniversary

Goooooooooooooooood news! Billy’s heading to the Windy City for a very special event. My pals at Scarlet in Boystown are celebrating ten years of "bringing the action" and yours truly in flying into town for their famous Frat Night!

Soooooooooooooooooooo many times Scarlet has provided just the right sounds, buds, and suds. It has always been more than a fun place to hang out, Dance Off, and bros being bros. It's been a proving ground of community and determination. Many will remember the fire that almost shut the doors for good. But, the show always goes on at Scarlet!

My pal forever and Scarlet owner, Paul Cannella has been a true friend to the Chicago LGBT community; giving funds and fun all throughout Scarlet’s ten years. I’ve been so honored to work alongside him hosting events, while sharing the not so fun and oh so wonderful times in Scarlet’s history.

Scarlet hasn’t just been a fun bar, but a community connection. General Manager A.J. Miranda and his team do a superb job producing parties that are hard to forget. Let us not forget Scarlet bartender and DJ Brryce Fersher’s crazy antics over the years!

I couldn’t be more thrilled to come back to Chicago to visit Boystown Friends and celebrate ten years of Rock Hudson raising his glass. Join us Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 10:00 PM at Scarlet.

See you Soon!

Alexandra Billings to the LGBTQIA family

BRAVA Alexandra Billings! Your words touch me deeply. The LGBTQIA family may not all get along, but we must remain one community nonetheless! 

Agreed!

With so much nonsense in the world today, a lot of folks are asking the go or stay question regarding President Trump. The latest episode of "Last Week Tonight" with host John Oliver poses some interesting information to help in our thoughts.



Whatever you believe, it's clear that we all need to participate in our democracy!

Will & Grace Returns!

You heard it right! It's the return of Will & Grace, this Fall to NBC. They've been on a ten year break, and come back to a new generation of viewers. Eric McCormack, (Will) Debra Messing, (Grace)  Sean Hayes (Jack) and Megan Mullally (Karen Walker) reprise their roles in this exclusive 12-episode event.  



I for one am delighted to see them all again. Especially Karen Walker! With the absence of my dear Joan Rivers, Kare and the gang will bring the right amount of comedic content this world of ours needs; all with a queer twist. 

Thrilled!
Bill Pritchard
