San Francisco LGBT Leather Park

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — A plan is in the works for a parklet in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood that would celebrate the area’s historic ties to the LGBT and leather communities.

According to the Bay Area Reporter, a developer of a new mixed-use housing and retail development is backing a proposal to turn part of a 12th Street between Harrison and Bernice into a leather-themed pedestrian plaza.

Eagle Plaza, as it would be called in relation to the nearby former Eagle Tavern, would be a public space and is within an area designated by the city as an LGBT cultural heritage district.  READ MORE HERE.

GET GIGGY TUESDAYS AT PUMP West Hollywood

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!”

Summer Deals in Gay Palm Springs

The ultimate desert playground for outdoor adventure, arts and culture, gaming and entertainment. Whether you are planning a family vacation, couple who wants a romantic retreat, or want a girlfriend’s getaway…Palm Springs is “Fun in the Sun” year-round.

Located in Warm Sands,  INNdulge corners the market on comfortable and casual. One section of the structure has the requisite pool and hot tub, and features rooms that are spacious and pampered without being stuffy, with nicely preserved ’50’s style kitchenettes (PS loves its retro history!) There is a poolside social hour (which most inns offer) and INNdulge probably boasts the most spectacular mountain-range view. Practically every Palm Springs Locale is outfitted with misters to combat the desert heat, but INNdulge has the only pool chiller which, when the heat soars to skin-melting temperatures, is quite a draw.

 

* Historic Warm Sands, Palm Springs most cosmopolitan neighborhood. Located just south of Ramon Road, Warm Sands is within walking distance to all the entertainment, shopping, and dining venues of downtown. Yet the neighborhood remains a world unto itself, one that is a microcosm of everything Palm Springs has to offer.

Anaheim Opens Packing House!

The Anaheim Packing District is
complete now with the Grand Opening of The Anaheim Packing House, the final segment of a multi-faceted restoration project pioneered by the City of Anaheim more than 10 years ago.

The Anaheim Packing District is proud to announce the highly anticipated Grand Opening Day for the newly restored Anaheim Packing House on Saturday, May 31, from noon-10pm, FREE to the public.

This all-day celebration kicks off with live music from various local country and blue grass bands and an Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 1pm on the front steps of the former Sunkist citrus packing warehouse. Built in 1919 and saved from certain demise by the Redevelopment Agency in 2000, the Packing House has been lovingly repurposed by the City of Anaheim into a world-class food hall reminiscent of the Ferry Building of San Francisco.  Carefully curated culinary artisans include an Indian café, seafood restaurant, Italian pizza patio, a butcher, fresh veggie and fruit juicery, baker, tea house, gourmet popsicles and much more with communal tables and central music performance mezzanine. Local stakeholders and history buffs will be Honorary Docents for the day and provide free tours of the historical landmark with Grand Opening souvenir giveaways (while supplies last).

This historic landmark, commonly known as the Sunkist Packing House, will now home to approximately 20 local culinary artisans sharing a communal eating and entertainment area, in the tradition of global food halls.

A sampling of Anaheim Packing House gourmet eateries coming soon includes: The Kroft
(gourmet sandwiches and specialty fries), Popbar (gourmet popsicles), Cafectio Organico (Guatemalan-style coffee), The Chippy (fish and chips), ADYA (unique Indian cuisine), Iron Press (waffle sandwiches), Ecco Pizza Shoppe (pizzeria), Wheat & Sons (local butcher), Orange Tei (gourmet sushi and Ramen), Rolling Boil (hot pot restaurant), revolutionary new bakery, Korean barbeque, surprisingly fresh juice bar, artisan cheeses and grilled cheese sandwiches, and more to follow.

The Anaheim brewing tradition also continues within The Packing House with bars The Blind Rabbit (speakeasy) and The Tool Shed(featuring unique organic wines).

The exterior warehouse loading docks have been transformed into dining porches and open top railroad cars have been parked on the original railroad tracks used to transport the citrus crops as additional outdoor
seating.

LAB Holding, LLC, known for the acclaimed community based projects such as
The LAB, The CAMP, The Casino San Clemente, SOLO and others, was engaged by the City to revive the cultural aspects and design of the project.

“The Packing House, built in 1919, is an authentic icon of Orange County’s
agricultural past,” states the LAB. “We honor this tradition by hand
selecting food and beverage purveyors to repurpose this grand hall into a
community gathering place with live music and seasonal celebrations. We
were inspired by Anaheim’s rich history and culture and the photos of
Anaheim’s early immigrant farmers who settled on these very streets.”

ABOUT THE ANAHEIM PACKING DISTRICT

The Anaheim Packing District,
located at 400 S. Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim, a unique gathering place for
local food, drinks and music, includes the Packard Showroom, Farmers
Park and The Anaheim Packing House. Built in 1919, the restored Packing House will serve as a culinary center that brings together artisan food producers and purveyors in a public market type setting. The Packard Showroom houses Anaheim Brewery and Umami Burger, now open. Farmer’s Park, an outdoor marketplace, will soon host an array of community activities such as outdoor concerts, movies, and seasonal festivals. Contact info@anaheimpackingdistrict.com to
keep abreast of Grand Opening details and upcoming events at the Packing House, or follow us on Facebook at AnaheimPackingDistrict or on  Twitter @PackingDistrict.
