MayDayGayDay

May 1st @ Cheer Up Charlies

Dark corners be damned . . . OUTsider is coming out!

Join us for the first annual MayDayGayDay – and release yourself to a mixed-up night of springtime frolics and artistic mischief.

Tiptoe through the tulips. Dance around the maypole gaypole. Send a (free!) flower-gram to a cutie patootie or red hot mama in the crowd. Transform the beautiful people into walking works of art. Let your lips be your fortune at our psychic palace. Get your picture taken with the bold and the badasss. Partake of the OUTsider Rough Rider (if you dare).
