It has been a very fun summer so far, what can I tell you! Right after my jaunt glamping in the Pocono's, it was off the next day to my favorite summer time haunt.... a lovely little spigot of land.....Provincetown, with the my clan!
Pride, tolerance and good times perfectly describe Cape Cod’s Provincetown – America’s ultimate GLBT vacation spot. It is no coincidence that for more than 50 years, the gay and lesbian community returns every summer to Provincetown. The recent development/tourism development of Provincetown owes much to this community here where one can find a place to feel at home. Nice people, tee shirt shops and lots of award winning fudge, lovely beaches and many , many cock-a-tails to be had, P-Town has it all! Hell even the Pilgrims came here first. Some reasons I loved this trip.....
Our host's rental this year. A quaint little house with 7 gay guys staying here. We needed as shoe horn to make us fit, and slept three deep! And they had the most tasty breakfast wines.
It’s A Giant Outdoor Gym.
The bike trails are intense and beautiful, and a hike across the breakwater will work out your quads better than any personal trainer. The ocean water is brisk and relatively safe for long swims—and it gives the studly year-rounders a wizened Paul Newman kind of sexiness. Or take a hike to see the various lighthouses. The beach we went to was Herring Cove, which was also a nice hike. Not to mention all the free cardio guys get on the side, if you know what I'm stepping in. Tons of walking through town seeing sights.
It was a sweet day for a parade in Provincetown on Thursday as the annual Carnival attracted around 90,000 party-goers to the Outer Cape. This year’s theme was Candyland, which resulted in eclectic and sometimes provocative outfits and parade floats.Costumes ranged from lollipops to cotton candy, and other candy-related themes and characters.The annual event, sponsored by the Provincetown Business Guild, is considered one of the largest outdoor celebrations in New England.
the fabulous Hat Sisters!
I was this close to putting him in my Candy Shop!!!!!
Miss Richfield 1981
You can hook up without a hookup app.
Call me old fashioned dears, but I'm hands on, and in your face. I like to see in person what I'm getting, and will melt in my mouth. Remember when guys got together by meeting in three dimensional space? Go back to ancient times, when gays cruised each other at bars, street corners, even at getting a coffee at 8am. Or after last call, when everyone congregates at Spiritus Pizza. And after that? Word has it that there’s a lovely little gathering place for gentlemen affectionately called the Dick Dock.
And speaking of like a orgasm in the mouth!
Just for Norma Desmond! Yes dear, we hit Spiritus everyday!!!!!! A must try!
The food here is great, from the top end tinkly wine glass type of restaurant to the fish and burger joints on MacMillan Wharf. There is also a supermarket so you can do it on the cheap. My other favorite place is the Lobster Pot.
Tea Dance at the Boat Slip. Need I say more?
The shopping is actually incredible.
Loved this little kitschy shop. I really like how the seashells were displayed. From high end boutiques, home stores, novelties and the AWARDING WINNING FUDGE....it's all here.
It’s the gay Borscht Belt.
The town’s galleries open their doors Friday evening, many with bottles of inexpensive Pinot Grigio, and some free wine at some spots. I suggest starting up at AMP Gallery on the West End and working your way east. Hit up Four Eleven Studio, William Scott Gallery and Provincetown Art Association and Museum and ending up at The Schoolhouse Gallery. Then go back and hit the ones you missed. And then there's the shows!! Drag is king in P-Town: Dina Martina, Miss Ridgefield 1981, Varla Jean Merman, Coco Peru, Courtney Act and Bianca Del Rio are just a few of the must-see experiences. We caught Courtney's act, and the ever handsome Well Strung String Quartet.
We saw the fabulous Miss Richfield 1981 and Dina Martina on the street with the fresh tips.
We met up for dinner and dancing with frequent blog commenter, and Casa du Borghese hussy. Pearly Gates...when she wasn't busy mugging in the Port-o-Potty!
It was another fun and fabulous time in Provincetown. The only thing we missed this year was our usual whale watch and seafood bake, in lieu of doing some art and seeing some shows. But a huge thank you to all for your wonderful hospitality, our hosts for putting us up, and to Glen at Crown and Anchor for hooking me up with refreshing complimentary gin and tonics!!!!! And to Pearly for your time and seeing your show. It's always a pleasure.
The sun-kissed Clan!
