Celebrate Halloween and mingle with LGBTQ+ folk and allies. Let’s support a fabulous local gay bar in its recovery. Bring your friends and meet new people from all over the world. We will gather in the back outside patio if the weather is nice or near the stage if not.
Go Gay DC leader TJ Flavell will be there to greet you. Name tags will be provided. There’s no cover charge.
**This is a free to attend event open to all. Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/184349904527 so we have an accurate group headcount. **
As Madonna said, “Come join the party…”
Party with a purpose: Since times are still tough for some, please bring a nonperishable food item(s) for Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), the community leader in providing and promoting dignified access to nutritious food for those in need. As the primary food bank and pantry in Arlington, AFAC serves over 2,300 local families every week. More information on what’s needed is at http://www.afac.org/donate-food/ Please feel free to bring as much food (cereal, canned goods,etc) as you wish, as it will be picked up that night and delivered to AFAC.
Halloween costumes optional or casual beach attire is fine. Enjoy the cash or credit bar drinks. Just ask the bartender what the happy hour specials are.
