    Short term "I need an event for tonight" threads on RJ aren't very successful.

    You're never going to find the hot spots by sitting at home on the computer.

    Put some tight jeans on, put some product in your hair and get the fuck out of the house. Go to a bar and buy somebody a drink, go to a different bar and ask someone to dance, walk around, look for a club, go up to a hot guy and say hi. Look for a guy with a rainbow keychain hanging out of his pocket and ask him if he wants to fuck.

    Believe me, the hot guys are not going to come knocking on your door. You've got to out, round them up and bring them back to your place.

    It's like being a salesman and the thing you are selling is YOU. Work your leads and don't be afraid to close the deal.

    about to leave and do that but i am not going to get laid, I have the best man in the world and no one will ever compare to him. I want to socialize and meet fun new friends. I will go out and do so.

    The Silver Fox is a fun and fairly social bar (and not just for daddies and boys despite the name), on Redondo just north of 4th St; on Wed and Sat nights there's karaoke, lots of very good singers (and the usual complement of cringe-inducing ones). There are other events during the week; if you show up and the place seems dead, you've probably just shown up on the wrong night/time. Most of the other bars are on Broadway, from about Redondo west to Alamitos; The Brit and The Mine Shaft are two of the more popular and social ones; Tue is Shaft Night, with specials on beer and drinks. On Broadway at Junipero is Hot Java, a coffee house which is very gay-friendly and usually pretty busy....lots of tables, some comfy chairs and sofas, and free wifi (as long as you purchase food or drink). At Broadway and Alamitos is Hamburger Mary's, a restaurant/bar with a dance floor; again, karaoke on some nights, other events thru the week.

    Long Beach in general has a very chilled out vibe, and the areas close to the water (Bluff Park/Alamitos Beach) lend themselves to strolling and just hanging out outdoors; 2nd Street in Belmont Shore has some nice shopping, cafes, and restaurants; Downtown and the area around the Aquarium continues to become more and more gentrified. And there are lots of organizations you can get involved in too; visit The Center, on 4th just east of Cherry, and they can help you get more 'plugged in' to what's happening (there are also lots of shops and eateries, and The Art movie theater, on 4th between Cherry and Junipero).

    I lived in LB for 10 yrs, from '95 to '05; would love to move back there. I end up hanging out there a lot anyway. Enjoy.

    Best bars in town are the Broadway Cocktails and Sweetwater Saloon, they're both on Broadway a block from each other. I'm there with the bf inconsistently to play pool and have drinks. We were at the Sweet yesterday around 5-6 but had other plans. Just head inside sometime and get to know the bartenders at the Sweet, they're all really good people and love to have some laughs.
