After a weekend in Bellingham, I'm home.
As noted earlier, Rumor's (the first gay bar I ever visited) has changed, and not for the better. Perhaps I'm old fashioned but I *like* a space we can call our own, particularly for the folks just figuring it out.
The Up'n'Up, where years back I was the littlest bouncer - has had a change in ownership that resulted in the place getting cut in half, the cessation of live music, and a pizza joint in the "other half".
At least the Colophon Cafe and their amazing African Peanut Soup remains.
