  • Spring Forward into Buffalo Bayou
    March 17, 2016
    Cher may be able to turn back time but even she couldn’t stop us from turning our clocks forward an hour this past Sunday. Luckily for us Houstonians, the beautiful spring and summer weather comes early which allows us to take full advantage of everything outdoorsy. Even now, as I sit on my balcony with the perfect sunny, 74 degree weather and my view of downtown, I am forgetting all about my full DVR which usually dominates my weekend and cannot wait to get out to the newly restored Buffalo
  • Rebooting Your Love Life in 2016
    March 11, 2016
    By Tammy Shaklee, Founder, He's For Me As I sit to write this, I feel like an investigative reporter. With the afternoon shower, I’ve escaped to the Solarium on Brilliance of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s “adult” pool, for shelter. Laptop on table, House of Cards new season streaming on wildly rare occasion based on wifi connectivity, I promised to complete the next blog before our next Matchmaker Alliance conference session. Among my fellow cruisers, in my view: a loving lesbian couple helping

  • Walk For A Cause
    March 2, 2016

Don’t worry, I am raising my hand on that as well. But you can help raise awareness and money for a cause by doing something as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. This Sunday, the AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc. will be hosting their annual AIDS Walk , presented by Marathon Oil. The 3k walk assists local AIDS
  • Meet the Bartender: Francisco Leal
    February 24, 2016
    The drinks are nice but let’s face it, the bartenders are what keep us coming back. Bartenders are the backbone of any great bar and their attitude and gregariousness, or lack thereof, can make or break any establishment. Each month we will look at the bartenders who are shaping the Houston gay scene and have us lining up for one more drink, even when we know we shouldn’t. This month, we are talking to Francisco Leal, a bartender at the ultra trendy F Bar . Opened in 2011, F Bar burst onto the
