Other Desert Cities tells the story of a family where secrets are currency and everyone is rich. Brooke Wyeth, a once promising young novelist, returns home after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former members of Reagan’s inner circle, plus her brother and her aunt. The festivities are short-lived, however, when Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history - a wound that her parents don't want reopened.

Wine Tasting Takeover: Grapes & Gays
With The Welcoming Committee

The Welcoming Committee (those crazy guys who bring you the Guerrilla Queer Bar) have invited those of us 35+ to join them at a Wine tasting, and have even offered us a $5 discount!

Wine tasting re-imagined. 4 tastings, 2 full glasses, 1 ride from Uber, lots of gay men 35 and over.

Discount code for $5 off: cambridge
  • $34 (-$5 = $29) until midnight Friday, Jan 25th
  • $39 (-$5 = $34) after midnight Friday, Jan 25th
Wine tastings may usually be reserved for the stuck up and stodgy straight crowd but The Welcoming Committee is here to change that. Welcome to the wine tasting takeover, reserved for gay men over 35. #YayYou!

We're kicking out the classroom component, sliding you up to four tables for four different tastings (red or white - you choose your poison), and taking all of the educational pressure off. Learn as much or as little as you want and end the evening with two glasses of whichever wines sparked your tastebuds' fancy. And because schedules are for straight tastings, this stodgy takeover lets you take as little or as much time to drink as you like.

In conclusion: 4 tastings, 4 regions, 2 full glasses, 1 room, lots of gay men. This is wine tasting re-imagined.

To get there in style, we're going to hook up members who are new to Uber with a $25 discount on their first ride. Sign up is easy. Just let us know if you're new to Uber by answering the extra question at check-out. We'll follow up with a code and simple setup process.

As always, venue is announced the day before.

Clybourne Park
SpeakEasy Out & About Night
Calderwood Pavilion, 527 Tremont Street (South End), Boston

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and London’s Olivier Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a bold new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each. Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play A Raisin in the Sun, this acclaimed work explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home in a white community to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in 2009, as the now predominantly African American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
Saturday March 9

8:00 PM
Mildred Fierce

Ryan Landry & the Gold Dust Orphans' latest masterpiece, Mildred Fierce, is a musical parody of the classic 1945 noir film Mildred Pierce, with Varla Jean Merman playing the Joan Crawford role.

If you've been to any of the Gold Dust Orphans' shows before, you know what to expect: great comedy, great numbers, great singing, ridiculous sets & costumes, and a really good time. If you haven't, well, you owe it to yourself to find out what you've been missing.

Viewing the original film is not a requirement, but if you get the chance, it will help.

There are two levels of tickets, and since the higher price is assigned seats, and we're buying our tickets separately, let's get the lower price tickets & do what we can to sit together, but let's not sweat it.

So get your own General Admission ticket(s) at Brown Paper Tickets, then RSVP to to let us know you're coming.

Dinner before is a distinct possibility.

Say farewell to summer on the beach. Revere Beach is on the T (Blue Line), so you can show up any time even if you're not driving.

I intend to get fried clams at Kelly's; the seagulls can catch them in mid air. With a little luck, there will be hunky kitesurfers to watch.

Take the Blue Line to Revere Beach (if you want a long walk along the beach) or to Wonderland (end of the line, slightly less handy to the beach, shorter walk on the beach) and go north (left when you get to the beach). You can't see Kelly's from the beach, but there is a pavilion across the street from it that is clearly visible.
