LAST MINUTE Add On to one of O.C.'s last Gay Bars THE LIZZIE SALOON!!!

To wind down our first official Orange County visit, we are going to caravan from north Huntington Beach (about a 15 minute car drive south of Lazy Dog Cafe) to O.C.'s quaint "hole in the wall" Gay bar called THE LIZZIE (NOT Lezzie!) SALOON--and sometimes still referred to by its original name "The Tin Lizzie" where we can enjoy a post-dinner "cock" tale. Since it is the area's only Gay bar it attracts a diverse cross section of Gay men and some lesbians.

It is appropriately located in the south tip of the "freeway TRIANGLE" between the 405, the 55 Costa Mesa & 73 Corona Del Mar freeways--a couple of minutes south of South Coast Plaza, and near the major intersection of Bristol & Baker Streets.

Though I cannot vouch for having pre-scouted this establishment (which I usually try to do when places are closer to home), a handsome, longtime O.C. acquaintance of mine (who I was trying to persuade to join us), highly recommended it after reading my comments about the only 2 Huntington Beach area gay bars closing over the past year or so.

The place has a kitschy-but-fun 80's faux Victorian decor and claims to serve fine wines, signature martinis as well as vintage cocktails. Although it is too small to have a dance floor, it does have a crystal chandelier over its pool table--which is a very nice touch.

It actually has a weblink with interesting photos, too, as well as map and address info...

Parking: There is a very small parking lot and otherwise street parking should be available within walking distance.

    The Lizzie was interesting and is located in a hip, slightly bohemian quadrant of the big O.C. It attracted a diverse and friendly mix of locals--many who expressed interest in participating in future, occasional Gay Winos events.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
