Sleeping Around California’s Central Coast

California produces some of the best wine in the world: Napa. Sonoma Country. Our cousin Shirley’s Fresno bathtub. But until late last year, we’d never had the opportunity to explore California’s Central Coast in person or more specifically, the San Luis Obispo region. (However, we’ve explored many a bottle from there in the comfort of our own back yard.) Much […]

Camp It Up

We remember summer camp fondly. Mostly because we had a major crush on a counselor named Chad who was so old and wise (and hunky). Yeah, he was 18 and we were 14 with raging hormones. Well, now we have the opportunity to go to camp as adults. And quite possibly find a whole-new Chad that actually wants to be stared […]

Sleeping Around Palm Springs: Clothing Optional Edition

It’s always smart to pack sunscreen for vacation, but in Palm Springs you may want to bump it up to SPF 100 or higher. Because you’re likely to have a few body parts exposed that don’t see the light of day that often, let alone around other guys by a pool. Or in line to toast your bagel at the breakfast […]

Here. Queer. Near The Pier.

Two decades is a long time to be in a rut. But we realize that over 20 years of visits to the Los Angeles area, we found ourselves staying exclusively in West Hollywood. Mostly because we simply can’t get enough of our fellow gays! So this past November we decided to stop taking day trips to the Pacific Ocean in […]

Spring In San Fran

There’s always a good reason to visit San Francisco. Then there are really good reasons. Next April, Out in the Vineyard is hosting The Big Gay Wine Cruise 2016 on a boat named, appropriately enough, The Hornblower (a.k.a. our college nickname). It’s an evening on San Francisco Bay with a delectable four-course dinner paired with wines from four of the […]

Ride Of Passage

Our last name should be Frankenstein. Because we simply love to experiment (and not just with body parts). During our most recent travels, we decided to put a theory to the test: Taking UberX the entire journey would be less expensive than renting a car. We already know it’s cheaper than a taxi, so that’s never even a consideration any […]

St. Regis Monarch Bay

Southern California is one of our favorite places in the United States. The weather is perfect, the landscape lush and the views from mountain-to-sea are stunning. Checking into the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, the latter is the showstopper. From high on the hills of Monarch Beach, the resort’s main building presides over an enormous heated pool – […]

Grape Gardens

Wine, women and song. We’re innately drawn to two of those three. (We’ll let you figure out which one we’re not.) But we can definitely clue you in that the winner in that trio: the glorious, luscious fermented juice of the grape. That’s why we’re smiling wide with purple teeth in anticipation of Gay Wine Weekend in Sonoma County, the […]

Sleeping Around West Hollywood

When it comes to California dreamin’, we’ve been laying ourselves down for a few vivid nocturnal fantasies. Maybe a little sleep, too. After years of sleeping around, here are our five favorite hotels in West Hollywood. The Standard One of the original “cool spots” on the Sunset Strip, The Standard has in recent years found some stiff competition in the […]

Head To The Mother Land

There’s so much to see and do in San Francisco. And so many people to be seen and done by. But even if you don’t have time to take a two-week vacation, all you need is two days and one hour. That’s right, San Francisco is promoting its 49 Hours campaign. How would you spend 49 hours in the 49-square-mile […]
