Gastronomy 101, a blog about food and Los Angeles restaurants

MISC: The End of the Rainbow

As I have said before, I always like to accomodate those who have found their way here via Google search only to discover that my blog does not contain what they are looking for.

So today when I saw that someone was searching for "gay bar in san luis obispo," I wanted desperately to help, since I have many fond memories of the gay bar in San Luis Obispo. Unfortunately, I can't help, because I do not have a time machine. IThe gay bar in S.L.O. is long gone, alas. I don't think anything new has come along to replace it, either. But if you know of something, post it! I will know where to go when next I go home. My husband will love it! Sadly, it's hard to find out where to go, because the gay community up there is pretty low key. If you happened to watch the Surreal Life when Alexis Arquette was on it, you would know exactly why.

So if this searching person is new to the Central Coast and looking for companionship, I would say you are going to have to start with the community theater. At least, that's the best way I know. Or you could do what I do and just start projecting your most enticing aura of "please, I need an entourage, stat!" and just gather the gay men to you by sheer force of will. If you're looking for lesbians, I'm afraid you've got me there. My aura doesn't work on them. But maybe you can develop it with your unique aura frequencies. (And no, I don't actually know what I am talking about. Please don't e-mail me about how auras work.)

Or, I guess you could be more straightforward about it and start with GALA. You can tell you're not in Kansas anymore, when instead of going out clubbing, you are doing gay square dancing. But you do what you have to, right? Why, when I read that I just wrote "gay square dancing", do I feel like I grew up in Star's Hollow?

I hope there is a good new gay bar in SLO-town because the one that used to be there--Breeze's--was not very fancy but it was the most fun bar in town. Unless you really really like frat boys and their corresponding sorority sisters. Then, every other bar is the most fun bar in town.

So good luck, lone searcher. I hope you find a place to go.

Also ... check out the LA Times Food section. Someone asked me what food blogs I like to read, and I might have mentioned your pseudonym.
