Last week I mentioned that Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming will be performing in Provincetown in August, but this week I want to remind you that in just a few more months the first major theme week of 2014 will kick off in Provincetown.
Are you planning to head down to Provincetown for the Independence Week parties? For those of you not familiar with Ptown or if you’ve never been during the week of the 4th of July check out this teaser from the Crown & Anchor.
Late last week I mentioned that Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming will perform a show at The Crown and Anchor on Monday, August 4th. Over the weekend the show sold out and a second performance (same night) at 9:30 p.m. has been added. Tickets may be purchased here, www.onlyatthecrown.com.
UPDATE: I’ve been told this show has now sold out as well. You can’t say that I didn’t give you a heads up.
While summer may still seem a long way off, The Crown & Anchor has been busy booking shows for the 2014 season in Provincetown. And this summer, Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming will perform live at the Crown & Anchor for one show only on Monday, August 4th.
Don’t be fooled by the steep ticket prices. This intimate gathering ensures this will sell out well in advance. Tickets are $185 – $350 and go on sale in March. To buy tickets, visit www.onlyatthecrown.com.
Still trying to figure out what you want to dress up as for Halloween? Ptown’s Spooky Bear Weekend has chosen a fun theme for their party at The Crown & Anchor. This looks like it would be hilarious and I’m sorry I won’t be there to see all these guys in their costumes.

Will you be heading to Ptown for one of the many Halloween parties? Do tell.
Sergio and I will likely continue to visit Provincetown off-season, but it is always sad to say good-bye to summer. Make your plans for 2014 early, Provincetown will book up quickly.
One week ago today Provincetown’s main drag, Commercial Street, was already crowded with people dressed in Las Vegas inspired, theme costumes even though the parade wouldn’t even make it to where I was in the West End for another three hours.
For those who attended, I hope this video offers some happy memories, but for the majority of you who were not there, enjoy this quick recap of all the fun that was taking place just one week ago in Ptown.
Have any questions about Carnival 2014? Feel free to contact me.
Last Friday while I was sitting down at the Aqua Bar enjoying a cold beer, I heard a familiar voice from behind me ask, “Is this seat taken?” When I looked over I saw it was Lea Delaria. I shared the seat but minded my own business but an hour later when I bumped into her on Commercial Street and she smiled back, I asked if she’d mind posing for a photo. Guess what she said. :-)
Although this year’s Carnival parade in Provincetown is yet to start, Commercial Street is chalk full of guys in Las Vegas themed costumes, in anticipation of the parade. I’ll be posting pictures from this year’s celebration and hope all the fun entices those of you who have never been to come and join in all the fun next year when Carnival’s theme will give a nod to Comic Book Characters / Superheroes.
Not sure which superhero best represents your personality? Check out this online quiz to give you ideas for the costume you should wear at Ptown’s 2014 Carnival celebration, Superhero Quiz.
The 2013 Carnival party in Provincetown starts later today.
If you’ve not attended Carnival before, my word of advice is to get out to Commercial Street early to watch the thousands of men and women dressed to this year’s theme Viva Las Vegas.
Here is a video my friend Olivier made after last year’s outlandish theme of Space Odyssey.
I’ll look to pull together something from all the fun this week to share with you in a few days.
I am off to Provincetown for one final visit before the 2013 summer season for Cape Cod officially ends this coming Labor Day Weekend. Should you be in Ptown and see me out this week, say hello.
Pardon the provocative blog post title, but for several years now every Wednesday night downstairs at the Governor Bradford there is a dance party called Fag Bash.
This week’s theme: Shotgun Wedding
Each week these differently themed parties attract party goers; some in very elaborate costumes. With Carnival Week in full swing by tomorrow night you can imagine that downstairs at the Governor Bradford will be packed so get there early. Much thanks to my friend Devon for sharing this week’s theme.
Are you heading to Provincetown in the coming weeks? Are you looking for a bit of pampering? My buddy Miro who I wrote about last year in this post and earlier this summer in this post, works as a massage therapist. He can make house calls or you can schedule an appointment at his studio in the East End. I consider Miro a friend and wanted to give him a shout out to let people know about his massage services.
Schedule an appointment by texting: (617) 519-5189
Miro describes his style as a combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue and Sport massage. My partner Sergio is a fan and has been getting massages from Miro for the past few years when we visit Ptown. I confess I’ve never had a massage, but I can tell you that Sergio always returns relaxed and feeling great. Miro’s rates are competitive at $90 for one hour or $130 for 90 minutes.
Want to schedule a bit of pampering while in Ptown? Check out my buddy Miro. You can contact Miro by phone to learn more about his services or to set up an appointment by texting, (617) 519-5189.
Just as Family Week in Ptown comes to a close, the gay dating site, DaddyHunt.com, presents the first annual Daddy Days in Provincetown.
Despite the name this new theme week seems to have quite a different vibe and will attract a different kind of Daddy.
Daddy Days in Provincetown from August 10th – 17th
Daddy Days organizers will use the Crew’s Quarters on Commercial Street as it’s base, but there are events scheduled through out the week including:
- Sunday sing along at the Gifford House Piano Bar
- Wednesday dinner & drinks at the Crew’s Quarters
- Friday’s so long to Daddy Days after T-Dance at the Pied
More details about the week can be found here.

Last weekend I was in Provincetown with Sergio and friends.
Unfortunately, plans prevent us from heading there again this weekend so I’ve posted a few photos from last week to help keep the memories alive a bit longer. Where are you spending your weekend? You in Ptown? Ogunquit, Fire Island, Ra-Cha-Cha (pardon the local reference only gay Bostonians would know).
Will you be visiting Provincetown later this summer? Do you have any questions about your trip? Feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.
If you have visited The Boatslip in Provincetown this summer to catch some sun on their deck, chances are either Yunus or Devon (shown above) have grabbed your chairs and helped you get situated. Our previous trip to Provincetown during 4th of July was when we met Devon and on this more recent visit since it was more quiet we were able to talk to both guys a bit more.
Yunus is originally from Turkey but now lives in Massachusetts near where he is going to college. Devon is from Vermont originally but is currently attending school in Rhode Island. If you happen to see these guys, tell them that BosGuy says hello and slip an extra dollar in the tip jar for these two students.
