Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
In the spirit of honoring and thanking those who have served our country, we will be having a special meetup on Saturday, May 24th at 10:00 a.m. This week, we will be returning to an old favorite of the group....the Cornerstone Cafe on "J" street for the next Sacramento Saturday Gay Brunch. Amber, our waitress, was a hit the last time we were there and is looking forward to welcoming us back. For those who have not been to the restaurant, take a look at their yelp reviews:
In addition to enjoying a great brunch, we will also be taking donations for a veterans charity who support LGBTQI rights. While DOMA is now dead, many in our community still face challenges in obtaining military benefits for their loved ones. This is especially true in states that are not as progressive as California (i.e. Mississippi). Donations are strictly voluntary. We will have a list of charity organizations that we can vote on at brunch for our donation. If you wish, we also want to encourage our members to volunteer their time at worthwhile veterans organizations if you would prefer not to make a donation.
As usual, singles and couples are always welcome and we never charge a cover fee. If you have friends who would like to join us, have them sign up for our group and encourage them to RSVP. If you have friends who would like to check things out before joining, please be sure to add them as a "+1" or "+2" to your confirmation. NOTE: If you and your partner are members and signed up for our group as a couple, please be sure to add a "+1" to your reservation so that we can give the restaurant an accurate count.
See you all soon!
UPDATE: Group member Alex Knapp has some friends who he is bringing to our meetup. They would like to invite members of our group out to their place for a afternoon pool party. All you will need to do is to bring a towel and some munchies. Rather than post their address on line, we will have more information and direction details at the brunch if you are interested in attending. Thanks!
