I will be working in Ptown this year from memorial day weekend - pretty much every weekend in June (except film festival weekend) and then Thursdays-Sundays in July through August 7th, and returning Women's Week in October.
Favorite Things To Do In Ptown:
I love riding my bike to the beach to flyer the folks down there. I love looking at the moors the dunes and the sparkling water as I ride down the bike path with the sweet warm wind blowing on my face. I love walking down the streets and seeing so many lesbians at once. Usually you have to pick them out of the crowd but women's week and girl splash week and memorial week wow it is lesbian city. I like that. It gives my heart a rest. I can relax and say oh great I don't have to represent this week - you can all carry that for me now. I love going to the Pied and dancing with all the women and when I dance I do dance with ALL the women on the dance floor - I cruise the dance floor stopping to dance with couples - they usually like it but there will be some who don't recognize me and give me the ole butt out bitch look - fine your loss. Anyway I love going to eat at the different eateries around town there is usually a new one every year to try there new wares. And I do like taking my bike every day out onto the pier and just smelling the air and looking at the boats and birds and clouds and thanking the great spirit or God for another beautiful day alive in one of the most beautiful spots on earth...Ptown!
