Must Go: Pink Traveler

Travel is like crack for us gays. We’ve got your fix.

Galveston Island: Tremont House

It’s hard to miss the Tremont House at night, what with the giant lit Mardi Gras arch just outside. Yet somehow, we still drove right past it the first time. But once we got to our room, we knew the┬áTremont House was a wise choice. The European-style hotel occupies a building built in 1879, so you know it’s rich with […]

Galveston Island: Eats

Some people take photos of their kids or loved ones to fondly remember a vacation. Us? We take pics of our food. Sad, but true. We can tell you about any meal we had on any vacation for the past ten years. It’s how we roll. So, of course, we have a few favorite places in Galveston to share with […]

Galveston Island: Attractions

Little did we know when we ventured to Galveston that we’d come face-to-face with a giant sloth inside Moody Gardens, one of the island’s top attractions. We met him inside the Rain Forest exhibit where he’s allowed to room free with monkeys and birds. Just beware, the upper portion of this exhibit clocked in at 130-degrees Fareinheit and 86% humidity […]

Galveston Island: Drinks

Believe it or not, we really didn’t drink that much in Galveston. Or should we say, that often. Far be it from us to EVER go to a chain restaurant when we’re on vacation, but we did happen upon one (and in our defense, we didn’t know it was a chain) called Fisherman’s Wharf, part of the Landry’s Seafood empire. […]

Shreveport: River Cruise

There’s nothing glamorous about the Red River Cruise and salty Captain Sandy. And no, that’s not the boat above. But it is one of the many interesting things you’ll see along this cruise up and down the Red River. There are people fishing, riverboat casinos, and all sorts of interesting sites to behold. Bring your own Dueling Banjos music. Call […]

Shreveport: Eats

In Louisiana, no one can hear you scream…that you’re hungry. Because they’re hellbent on feeding you, and feeding you well. From traditional Cajun influences to fine dining, there’s something for everyone. At Columbia Cafe, a charming little bungalow, breakfast is the order of the day. Known for flavorful omelettes, it’s a hip and funky place. Even though the waitress we […]

Shreveport: Drinks

One of the best things about Louisiana is its drive-through daiquiri joints. People will fight you over which one is the greatest, but everybody is allowed their opinion. We were taken to Cajun Daquiris on East 70th Street, which we were promised is a much more “authentic” version that other locations of the same brand. This one definitely had character. […]

Shreveport: Hilton

Located next to the Shreveport Convention Center, the Hilton is one of the best hotels in town. It’s central to the vibrant downtown district and features all the amenities you’d hope to have. A comfortable bed, decent bath products, and amenties like a rooftop pool, jacuzzi and fitness center make it an ideal home away from home. If you like […]

Shreveport: Gay Bars

Shreveport gay bars are nothing fancy, but they’re a lot of fun. We don’t know the official stats, but from what we’ve found online, we visited two of the three gay bars in town. Korner Lounge, despite the fact that we loathe anything spelled with a “K” in place of the correct “C”, is a tiny bar that’s full of […]

Shreveport: Museums

Culture is alive and well in Shreveport and most of the museums are free. What a concept! We visited a few, but have two that are well worth the visit. The R.W. Norton Art Gallery & Museum is vast and has a rather unusual permanent collection. The room full of creepy old dolls is always enjoyable, but it’s the Western […]
