gay-bar-west-hollywood-pump-giggy

Lisa Vanderpump, Giggy and White Party Palm Springs founder Jeffrey Sanker have teamed up to present “Get Giggy Tuesdays” at PUMP Restaurant & Bar.

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014 patrons will be able to enjoy complimentary sumptuous appetizers & delicious special priced cocktails such as the Pumpoplitan Martini, Pumpagranite Margarita and PUMP’s delectable LVP Sangria.

Bravo & Dancing with The Stars personality Giggy Vanderpump will also be making an appearance and he has created a special cocktail for the night that’s “paw”licious.

It’s where all the boys will be on Tuesday nights for “selfies” with Giggy who commented in his usually wry manner. “My mistress (Lisa) WOOF! WOOF! and I have been working extra hard to make Tuesday’s the sexiest and most glamorous night in town… just like me. So be sure to stop by and Get Giggy with it!”

Rainbow Streets will Stay in West Hollywood

LA’s  WEST HOLLYWOOD has decided it will permanently
keep this year’s Pride month rainbow crosswalks.

The walks span San Vicente
Boulevard at Santa Monica Boulevard,  and was voted by the West Hollywood City
Council earlier this week to keep them on permanently. Initially after Gay Pride month,  the bricks were to be restored the to their original red color,
but they have proved so popular, they will now be a permanent part of
the popular LGBT destination of the city, in the heart of WeHo  Boystown.

Patch
reported that Councilmember John Duran said the crosswalks, as well as
the rainbow flags along Santa Monica Boulevard, are important for the
soul of the city. He said while locals may take such things for granted,
visitors do not. “[The crosswalks] are critical to the tourists and
young gay and lesbian people and not-so-young gay and lesbian people who
are passing through … They cannot believe that they actually see a
municipality where the rainbow colors are on display all year long. It
tells them it is a sanctuary. It tells them there is a safe place in
America where the LGBT community is celebrated,” he said.

And A Few More Christmas – Holiday Photos From Some of Our Favorite Gay Cities!






Millions of people come to Rockafeller Center and New York City at Christmas!

The tree, usually a Norway spruce 75 to 90 feet (23 to 27 m) tall, has been put up every year since 1931.

The decorated Christmas tree remains lit at Rockefeller Center until the week after
New Year’s Day, when it is removed and recycled for a variety of uses.
In 2007, the tree went “green,” employing LED lights. After being taken down,
the tree was used to furnish lumber for Habitat for Humanity house construction.



Union Sqaure, San Francisco  – above.
Macy’s Great Tree. Usually about 85 foot with thousands of lites!




Above – Further south in California, you have THE GROVE in Los Angeles
Shopping, dining, choreographed fountains – it’s magic in the Grove!
Then there is the Hollywood Christmas Parade during December, and Disneyland in Anaheim
is our course all done up for the holidays, complete with a nightly snowfall!

Below –   West Hollywood. Perhaps the gayest city in the world?
It is said that more than 33% of it’s population identify with being LGBT!
That a lot of gays!

And at the epicenter is  THE ABBEY   -BEST  GAY  BAR IN THE  WORLD,
as voted recently by  TripOut Gay Travel Awards & Logo.




Best  Gay  Cities!
Happy  Holidays!
