That game seems like a pretty guaranteed way to make sure you wake up in the morning with a bunch of your friends naked in your bed, wondering if anything happened or if whiskey dick saved/ruined the day.

I'll be sticking to this.

Just watched the latest episode on logo.com. I've been waiting (in vain) to see a drag queen fight like I see every week at the gay bars out here in PA, haha.

Damn you and your parts of diabolical plots to create critical masses of gays at SLS.

In any case, I am excited for free food at the gay dinner.

Edit: also, apparently Stanford paid for people to go to some Lambda job conference in NYC. They treat us right.

on't get me wrong, I like the Abbey (especially the after work specials, the drinks there are by far the best in weho), but on Friday and Saturday nights it's kind of ghetto. It attracts a lot of guys from places like Rancho Cucamonga, Eagle Rock, and San Fernando who drive in for a night out. Most of the hot guys have moved on. There is a LOT more eye candy at Mickeys or Eleven. You should definitely try the Abbey mojitos though, they're great.



This is a totally bizarre opinion. First, Eagle Rock is like 20 minutes away. Second of all, eye candy at MICKEYS? That made me LOL.

As for The Abbey:

Okay, well I dislike being a hater, but

no, wait, who am kidding: I LIVE for it.

Oy, where to begin? I guess I could say that it wasn't as good as it used to be, or that the food borders on inedible, or that developmentally disabled baboons could make better cocktails, or that the bartenders have less charisma than a typical spiny anteater, or that it's way overpriced, or that I'd rather consort with hungry velociraptors than 80% of the clientele, or that whenever I'm there I feel like I'm a stop on a tour company that caters to straight tourists who think they can see gays in their native habitat.

But why bother? Location, location, location. Nothing I can say will stop people from going (or dragging me) there. And yes, the decor is beautiful, but look carefully and you can see signs of some serious wear and tear (much like the inhabitants).

is anyone going to the UT ASD or does anyone know of the gay clubs/bars in Austin? i don't think i'm going to rent a car while i'm there, so i'd not experiment all over the place

on a side note, i updated my 'tar in the spirit of this thread

Is that the same as Lavender Law? I know they send a bunch of people to that conference every year (this upcoming one is in Miami).

For 2010 or 2011? UCLA pays for outlaws to go to lavander law, and Miami would be sweet.

Fall 2010. I know a few schools (Columbia in particular) won't let 1Ls go, but yes, Miami would be very sweet.

Hey guys, checking in here.

I went to the Outlaws apartment party at CLS' first admitted students weekend and found a welcoming bunch. My initial reaction was no dinner!? cheapos-- unlike most of the other evening student org. events -- but then I realized choosing informal drinks at a random apt vs. a bunch of people who haven't met before sitting down for a formal dinner = the gays know what they are doing. Plus, buzzing a random apartment to meet gays brought me back to my hook-up days...

Next up for me is the NYU ASD's late this month and probably their Outlaws event. Anyone else?

I'll be at the NYU ASD, presumably at the Outlaws event, too. I haven't looked into when it's scheduled yet. Gotta expect that NYU will put on a good party, though. Missed the last CLS ASD, hopefully will get to the one in April.

Who needs NYU to put a party on for you? You're in NYC and need nothing more than that.

But I'm from NYC, so I kind of expect it. I expect NYU to be more over the top.

Just because NYU's undergrads are over the top doesn't mean their law students are also, does it...!?

From my experience, their law students are pretty nerdy, which I take to be generally true of all law schools. Doesn't mean they're incapable of a good time, though.
