Alby saidArt drinks for sure but anyways,
I'll look into the Grand and as for the beach Art is right I prefer to walk down the street without worrying about my car! Keep the recommendations up! Any more input is greatly appreciated
Did someone I've got blocked slander me again for my alleged drinking? I wonder if I get to claim they're drug users, having no more evidence for that than they do for my supposed excessive drinking. Over a dozen RJ guys have met me in person, and none has ever seen me drunk. Yet this vicious myth that the conservaposse spreads to discredit my political views continues. Well, anyway, had to set that right.
As for parking, the Birch Road gay guest houses are very short of parking. Most just offer a small pull-in off the street for maybe 6 cars. If you get a space try to keep it; walk, bike or bus as much as possible.
Other notes: to keep their gay guests free from possible harassment and surveillance (more so in the old days), and also to maintain the privacy needed when clothing optional, most have locked gated entrances to the property. Look for an intercom on the outside of the entrance to buzz the front desk and let you in. Have their numbers handy on your cell phone in case they're away from the desk; I've been stranded outside a number of times, though once you check-in you'll get a gate key or combo.
How long will you be in town? Lots of other things to do. If you stay on or right off Birch Rd, the Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is just a 1/2-mile walk north up the beach-front road, A1A, you'll see the long iron gating bordering the sidewalk. That's an interesting tour, though pricey at around $20.
Most of the gay night life is in Wilton Manors. At your age you might be interested in the dance bar Boom, next to the well-known Alibi. Tell us what your interests are (leather, cowboy, twink, sports, seniors, strippers, etc), and there's probably a club for it.
