dbar’s Snowball Beach Party Tea Dance

dbar tea dance Sunday, February 24th from 4-8pm dbar will host their Snowball Beach Party Tea Dance.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their speedos to compete in a bathing suit contest. Yours truly will pass on the contest but is looking forward to stopping by to rub shoulders with friends and acquaintances.  If you’ve never been to dbar, use this as an opportunity to check out  Dorchester’s only gay bar. The tea dances can get very crowded so arrive early to enjoy all the fun.  The crowd tends to be very friendly, but if you don’t know anyone, look for me and introduce yourself. I always enjoy meeting nice guys.

The dbar “Opening Day” tea dance to benefit The Boston Living Center was held yesterday and judging by the size of the crowd it looks like a lot of money was raised to benefit this very worthwhile local non-profit.

The weather was beautiful, Gay Jim from KISS 108 was on hand to play great music, and everyone seemed to be in a fantastic mood (you would have never guessed Monday was just around the corner).

Here are a few photographs from all the fun yesterday afternoon.  Thank you to all of you who posed and thank you for supporting The Boston Living Center.  To get invitations to future tea dance parties at dbar like their page here

And of course, thanks to Marc and Matt for pulling the event together.

Looking for dinner plans this weekend? Consider checking out dbar.  The Dorchester restaurant and bar has responded to the Chick-Fil-A controversy in a very positive and creative manner.  Best of all, a portion of their proceeds this weekend will go to GLAAD’s Speak Out Against Chick-Fil-A campaign.

4th of July in Provincetown

Last Wednesday was the 4th of July.  My partner and I opted to escape the heat of Boston and spend the week in Provincetown.  Lucky for us (and half of Boston or so it seemed) Brian Piccini – owner of dBar and DeuxAve – hosted a fantastic party at his house in Provincetown, which has a beautiful view of Provincetown Harbor. Listed below are some photos from his Independence Day bash. Thank you to all those who posed for a picture. And thank you Brian for the invite. Brian PicciniBrian PicciniBrian PicciniBrian PicciniBrian Piccini

DotOUT Summer Tea Dance at dbar

dBar Sunday, June 24th was the DotOUT Tea Dance at dBar in Dorchester.  Weather for the 5th Annual Tea Dance could not have been better and that is probably why most everyone who was not dancing spent a good part of the event on dBar’s patio.  Keeping with the Price is Right themed Boston float DotOUT had at Boston Pride, the Tea Dance had many props and games associated with the game show.

“Gay Jim” from KISS 108 FM kept everyone dancing all afternoon

Gay Jim DJ

Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to pose for a photo and apologies to any that may not have made this post.    I’d also like to thank dbar and their staff, all the sponsors and DotOUT for pulling together another wonderful Tea Dance.dbardbardbardbardbardbardbardbar

dBar pride photo shoot

dBar released a cute 2 minute video of the gay bar’s Pride Photo shoot down in Provincetown.  Bonus points to those who can identify the notorious location of the shoot.  Clearly dBar was inspired by the uber sexy Andrew Christian tribute to Kat Graham video. It looks like Jesse, Chris and Myles had a lot of fun and I suppose that’s what really counts.

Want to see the naughty video that inspired the g-rated dBar version? Check it out here.

Restaurant review: dBar

Formerly an Irish-style pub,dBar can get rowdy later in the evening – especially on Tuesdays when they host “Show Tune Tuesdays” or on the weekends, so for that reason I suggest going on Sunday’s, Monday’s and Wednesday’s when its easy to get a table and you won’t be shouting over DJs or show tunes.

The menu, created by Executive Chef, Chris Coombs, is typically American but inspired by French cooking.  Its approachable without being boring, meaning that both picky eaters and those looking for something different can sit at the same table and find something they’d like. When we sat down for dinner we started with lobster bisque for $8.00 and the beet trio salad with goat cheese croquette (mmm), candied hazelnuts, and croutons for $11.00.For dinner we ordered two of the restaurant’s most popular plates, the crispy organic chicken breast served with mashed potato, steamed broccoli in a delicious oyster mushroom-madeira jus for $18.00 and the sirloin burger, frites and salad for $12.50.  The chicken and burger were both cooked to perfection.  The portions ran large, making us leave with a slight food coma. dBar does Dorchester proud and is worth trying.  In the summer, many of the vegetables and herbs on the plates served are grown fresh atop the roof of dBar. The restaurant is open 7-days a week and has a full bar.  If you are interested in trying dBar you can call them at (617) 265-4490 or stop by for a visit at 1236 Dorchester Ave. You can find dBar online at, www.dbarboston.com.

dbar Snowball Beach Party Tea Dance

It was just a few months ago that I posted photos from dbar’s Harvest Tea Dance. Tomorrow, Sunday – February 26th, dbar will host their winter Tea Dance.  Although temperatures are chilly in Boston this weekend, there will be no snowballs to worry about, and with a speedo contest encouraging people to arrive in beach attire, this could be an interesting way to spend your Sunday afternoon. Will you be going?
