BEST PLACES for Lesbians (and those that love them)

Recommend your favorite LOCAL haunts to other members, where to go when folks are in your town, etc. Locale-specific ?'s and event announcements go here too. (For general purpose non-expiring longer-term stuff, please see if whatever city already has a thread going and reply to that rather than starting another fresh one. Time-limited event announcements should have their own thread with a subject line worded as specifically as possible (where/when/what, etc.))

Dating Disastrously

Ever been on a date that started reasonably enough with a reasonable-seeming person . . . but then (insert horror movie music here). Could be a first date or something that went horribly awry in an ongoing relationship. Disaster daters can share the quirky, the disturbing, or the certifiably disturbed. Others can share support or survival tips.

Older & Wiser

Yes, age IS just a number, but as our number increases hopefully we learn a few things along the way. Here's a forum in which the O&W can commune. Possibly also a place spring chickens can request some sage advice from those who have been around the "lesbian block" a few times? You decide! (How old is "older?" We won't define that for you, you'll have to self-select. ;-) )

'Tis the Season to Feel Stressed Out

No matter your personal beliefs or degree of investment in the holiday season(s), it can be a stressful time. Some say even more than average for queers. If you're "out" you may suffer from familial judgments on your "lifestyle," if you're not, you might have to field nosy questions or "straighten up" your house. Share the pathos and support each other here.
