Beaches and Beer

Recommended for : Food & Drink Party
1
Your destination: the Silver Cloud Inn. It's on the corner of Broadway and Madison (as close to the center of Seattle's queer party scene as one can manage to stay).
2
Stroll down Broadway and take a right up Pine. The bars aren't open yet, but Odd Fellows Restaurant is the next best thing. Fuel up with a mimosa and some of the best breakfast on the hill, while enjoying glasses-clad glances from kindred spirits who also live in the fast lane.
3
Checkout Toys in Babeland for a locally-owned, sex positive boutique experience before hopping the bus to Lake Washington's Denny Blaine Park (for those who identify in the lesbian, queer, or trans* communities), or to Madison Beach if you're a gay man. 
4
Spread out a towel, get as naked as you see fit, and get comfortable. 
5
Ready for a change of scenery? Get to know the other gays who party hard by heading back to the Hill and stopping for a burger and a cheap drink at Linda's Tavern. Make sure not to get suckered into sitting inside - the patio is the place to be. 
6
Party time. Can't start too early, right? There are a lot of stops to hit. Start off slow with Madison Pub or The Wild Rose. 
7
Graduate slowly by hitting up Pony, followed by a quick stop at Purr.
8
If you feel like dancing (which of course you do), Kremwerk, Chop Suey, R Place, The Cockpit, or Re-Bar are your best bets. But why choose? Often there are queer parties at multiple locations on the same night - and the evening is very young.
