Are you really ready for Pride Month 2009?
Just asking because there’s so much happening this year that you had best get your calendar out NOW and start blocking out dates for the following Pride 2009 events:
“Strike out with Pride” Bowling Tournament – If you think gay bingo is a hoot, you’re going to LOVE gay bowling. Join us at the private and super comfy Seven10 bowling lounge at ACME Bowl in Tukwila. This ultra-modern, swanky lounge provides Seattle Pride bowlers an intimate, upscale bowling experience. While knocking down pins, you'll enjoy food and beverage service from the restaurant and lounge, you’ll fixate on the 150" projection screens at the end of each pair of lanes, and sit on couches so comfortable, you'll forget it’s your turn. At “Strike Out for Pride” you will also enjoy unlimited billiards play as well as bowling. The Strike out with Pride - Bowling Tournament is definitely the place to be. Sponsored by ACME Bowl and Seattle Out and Proud.
