    Since the gay scene in San Francisco is big, I guess I should not expect much to find outside in suburbs including Silicon Valley. Any gay bars in Mountain View or around?

    How about Santa Cruz?

    In Santa Cruz, there's the Blue Lagoon, which was always a big scene on Thursday nights and there was another one a block or two down the street that was called Dakotas, but I think it's now called Motiv, next to Joe's Pizza & Subs.

    I believe for the Under-30 gay crowd, there also Equinox. Not a club, but a safe place, and on Wednesdays during Daylight Savings Time there's a Gay Volleyball group on the beach next to the Boardwalk that starts around 5.

    Splash - in San Jose, downtown at Post Street & Lightston is to me the best place to have a blast, dance , meet attractive guys and feel like you're IN the City (SF) without driving an hour to get to the City. Two floors, two bars, a great upstairs terrace overlooking the best parts of downtown SJ. Guys dancing in bikini underwear on elevated platforms, & everybody in good moods having fun, meeting other people. Some straight men & women blending in & it is great seeing everybody getting along socializing together. You're in Mountain View - about 15 minutes away. Maybe take Uber so you can drink without driving & parking problems. Wear whatever you look good in, and if you go alone, just get buzzed a bit & get out on one of 3 dance areas and blend in with other singles, couples and dance your ass off. Talk to people on the upstairs terrace & exchange contact information. Expect to have a blast!
