For some time, I've wondered what it was with people and bars. I don't drink, I don't dance, and I certainly don't hook up. Yet, even people who knew how uninterested I was in these things have tried to coax me to go with them to various bars. Not just any bars, of course; my straight friends, for some reason, were convinced that I simply needed to go to a gay bar, and that the magic of the gay bar would somehow cure me of all my dispassionate responses towards the things that I don't enjoy doing. (Though really, what is it with straight people and their obsession with gay bars? What do they plan on doing there?)
Then, a while back, there was a discussion topic here
on what would constitute an Ace bar. I reveled in the ideas, cherished them, and contributed my own--if such a magical Ace Bar existed, then surely I would go! But alas and alack, no such establishment exists--and I saw that there was a great desire amongst my fellow Aces for such a fantasy to be real! I am sadly lacking in entrepreneurial skills, and yet--somehow, I felt that there needed to be a response.
So! In order to help foster the environment of the Magical Ace Bar From Utopia Rainbow Land (a place that is far, far away and populated by Lisa Frank unicorns), I bring to you a guide on how all of us can construct a little piece of the Ace bar into our own homes:( Bringing the Magical Ace Bar Home: the Pillow Fort Edition complete with picturesCollapse )
