Gay RomCom: Bros opens Friday

Luke MacFarlane and Billy Eichner filming a scene from Bros in front of A-House in Provincetown

I haven’t been to the movie theater in quite some time but Sergio and I plan to check out the movie Bros, which opens on Friday, September 30th.

Last August I was contacted by one of their casting managers and asked if I could help spread the word that they would be filming in Provincetown the following month and encourage interested people with “quirky personalities” to answer the open casting call. I wrote about it here. Sergio had the time off (and he has a quirky personality) so he answered the casting call and was selected for the filming.

I know there has been a lot of back and forth within the LGBTQ+ community about this movie, but I’m excited to see it. I love the feelgood and corny appeal of the RomCom movie genre, I love the idea of Provincetown being a backdrop for a few scenes in the movie, and I’m more than a little curious and excited to see if I can spot Sergio in one of the scenes filmed there.

If you’re unfamiliar with the movie, you can read more about the storyline and who is starring in the film here.

2022 Summer recap

Labor Day Weekend officially brings the summer season to a close in New England. The warm weather will continue to bring people to the beaches but the summer-state-of-mind shifts back to reality when I return to the office on Tuesday so I thought I’d recap what has been a wonderful summer.

MAY: Hello Captiva Island
Our first large group vacation since the COVID-19 outbreak took place over Memorial Day Weekend. Our friends David (taking the selfie), Mark (next to him in the green polo) and Rodney (in the back with the I ❤️ Fig Newtons shirt) organized this amazing trip. It was a great start to the summer season.

JUNE: Summah in the City
We spent most of June in Boston and highlights included going to a few Red Sox games at Fenway Park and going to M Street Beach (a.k.a. Kiki Beach) in Southie on the weekends. I love Boston in the summer.

Goofing around before the crowds arrive

JULY: Ptown & Brazil
We spent the July 4th holiday in Provincetown relaxing at our friend Marco’s beautiful home, and seeing friends, including the proud new owners of the Crown & Anchor, Paolo Martini and Jonathan Hawkins. They’ve done an amazing job since purchasing this inn, restaurant and entertainmnet complex, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Then it was off to Belo Horizonte, Brazil to celebrate Sergio’s Mom’s 90th birthday at the end of the month. Kudos to Sergio for pulling off an amazing party. Below is a selfie I took to show off Belo Horizonte (Sergio’s hometown).

Belo Horizonte, Brazil

AUGUST: Back to Provincetown for Carnival
After unpacking from Brazil, we turned around a week or so later to go to Provinctown. We spent Carnival Week enjoying drinks and meals with friends, seeing a few shows, and visiting “Boys Beach”. Below are a few photos from our week at Carnival. BTW, Carnival 2023 theme is Land of Toys so start thinking about your costumes.

I’ll definitely miss the summer of 2022. Much thanks to Mother Nature for giving Boston and much of New England one of the best summers in recent memory.

Independence Week(end) in Ptown

Sergio and I visited Provincetown for the start of Independence Week celebrations and it was nice to see that things have largely returned to normal. The town is packed – the circuit boys are back, the families from all over the Cape are visiting, and the town is proudly decorated in red, white and blue.

Crown & Anchor Inn owners, Jonathan Hawkins and Paolo Martini

We were able to meet up with the proud new owners of The Crown & Anchor, Jonathan Hawkins and Paolo Martini. Since purchasing the property they have made several notable changes to the hotel, restaurant and bars.

Jonathan was nice enough to take us through the property giving us glimpses of the hotel rooms that have been updated and a moving exhibit called Ides of Gender by Zach Oren who photographed more than 500 trans folks which you can learn more about here.

Sunday’s Overboard Pool Party at Crown & Anchor with DJ James Cerne

This was the first year that the crowds seem to have returned in earnest and everyone is having a good time. Last year’s event was marred by terrible weather followed by an outbreak of COVID that garnered Provincetown bad press, but that is all in the past and I want to wish everyone there this week a wonderful time.

If you have plans in the coming weeks or months to visit Provincetown and you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. Finally, if you will be visiting Ptown, be sure to see a show. You can find out who is performing and where on my list of 2022 Provincetown Summer Performances.
