Friends! So many of us grew up in gay bars, used them as a place to meet and connect with like-minded folks, sought them out as a place of relative safety and reprieve from the outside world. Tonight we open up Arcana as a place to talk, vent, grieve, cry, hug, connect, and love each other. Keep loving each other~

It's Wednesday! Join us tonight for a Negroni and a special night of live music with Sharon Knight and Juliana Finch. Their music has been described as, "Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” Come check them out!

It's National Negroni Week! That means we'll be donating a portion of each negroni sale to support a local organization.
