Little is always better!

Size Queen:
Tell the truth, you clicked on the link to my blog, because you couldn’t believe I would say little is always better! Didn’t you?

Well, it’s the truth. I really appreciate the little things in life. I’m one of those people; a touch sentimental and thankful of small gestures that impact big.

It’s kinda fun to think about those things in your life that do that. The note from a friend; a special meal made just for you, or the anticipation of a fun event. These small simple things bring a smile to your face or warm your heart.

Be on the lookout for the little things, and you will find they are in abundance. Provide those little things to others and your day will be made.

Big Schmig!

Athletic Supporter!

Out At Wrigley:
Last year, I went to my very first Cubs game with my buddy Paul Cannella. We had THE best time doing all the ball game activities; from drinking beer and eating peanuts, to actually watching the game. To be clear, I’m pretty sure we could have fun in a cardboard box, but the game at Wrigley Field was such a unique experience.

Out At Wrigley celebrates its 13th year of providing that fun experience as Chicago’s original gay day at Wrigley Field.

Tickets for the August 3rd fun are on sale at OutAtWrigley.com. And, If you buy a Budweiser Patio Deck ticket, you will get a free ticket to the National gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony the day before!

Go Cubs!

Brotha Fred’s GAYberhood

KISS This!:
One of the highlights of my Pride every year is when my friend Brotha Fred, my girl Angi Taylor and my boy MJ at Chicago’s 103.5 KISS FM invite me to come on-air the Friday before the Pride Parade.

We had such a blast talking about Pride and all the events taking place this weekend. It’s especially encouraging to see such great support for LGBT equality and community from our straight Allies! They are so damn sweet to reach out to our community and shed light on the LGBT cause!

Of course ChicagoPride.com and Chicago’s 103.5 KISS FM have been partners for years, through I heart Radio and PRIDE Raido; streaming on ChicagoPride.com and all the GoPride Network sites.

Make your pride plans with ChicagoPride.com’s 2013 Pride Guide. You can also see the parade live on ChicagoPride.com via our partnership with Gay Chicago TV; providing a front row seat to the 2013 Chicago Pride Parade

As much fun as Pride can be, we ought not to forget why we celebrate it! Many individuals have fought for our rights to equality. As corny as it sounds, it is those make a difference people we should be proud of. It is equality we should be celebrating. We may have more to achieve, but we can all agree; we’ve come a long way in our community!

Proud!

MJ Does Boystown

Straight Date:

In case you missed it, I paid a special visit to Brotha Fred's Neighborhood, on Chicago’s 103.5 KISS FM. Hosts Brotha Fred, and the lovely Angi Taylor set up a tryst with Executive Producer MJ.





The straight date started, at famed Boytstown eatery, Taverna 750; followed by Minibar Ultra Lounge & Café and ending at Scarlet.

Brotha Fred surprised us by joining in the fun. MJ had an absolute blast.

With Allies like these, who cares about enemies!

It was a gay ol' time!

The Games We Play

Replay:
Remember when your parents said, playing video games was just a waste of time? Well, they weren’t entirely correct. Boystown’s newest night life arcade, Replay Beer and Bourbon, boasts some of the best old school video games around, and one bitchin Spider Man wall!

Owner Mark Lieberson held a special party at the former Bucks Saloon, previewing the new space before their grand opening this weekend. Replay boasts designs of an arcade with over 20 retro arcade games ranging from Ms. Pac-Man to Galaga, Space Invaders to Donkey Kong.

Replay also features more than 24 craft beers on tap and a cocktail menu designed by mixologist, Danny Quinn. Speaking of cocktails, last night I sampled the Ecto Cooler, made with Hangar One orange vodka, orange liquor, lemon juice, Yellow Chartreuse, and a touch of San Pellegrino Orange. OH MY WORD! It was so delicious!

Be sure to check out the photos from last night’s viewing, by Anthony Meade.

Don’t forget, this weekend features International Mr. Leather, Combustion, and the Grabby’s.

Get out and enjoy the city of Chicago!
