Club Drama – One Year Anniversary

One Year Anniversary

The very first Club Drama was March 2010. Club Drama is a great event at the White Horse bar that is run by some friends of mine. I try to go every month because the music is great and the crowd is usually good. This was also a kick in the butt for me to start blogging more. I was excited that my friends were creating such a wonderful event and I wanted to help them make it a success.

Over the last year I have had a lot of fun with my blog, Queer Oakland and Queer Landia. By trying to help my friends, I ended up helping myself along the way. While my blog hasn’t made it to the big time yet, I have had a huge achievement. Most of my blogs have been forgotten after 6 months. This blog has been up and running for over a year with posts continuously appearing (sometimes only one or two posts a month, but still continuing).

In honor of the last, here is the anniversary post. I look forward to having many more years together.

White Horse Bar

The White Horse bar is one of my favorite place to hang out these days. This is a great place to go with friends and socialize. The bar has great music, a large dance floor and a big smoking area. The drinks are good and the staff is wonderful. They have two pool tables, a fire pit, pinball games and rotating DJs.

The thing that I love the most about the White Horse bar (aside from the staff of course) is that I can have a conversation with friends in one room and then walk into the back and dance when the right song comes on. With a lot of clubs, you only get one or the other: The bar where you can socialize and hear each other talk or the bar with the pounding music and a dance floor. The White Horse has both, which makes it a great place for most any group of friends.

“The White Horse Inn still stands at the corner of 66th Street and Telegraph in Oakland. Built in 1936, it’s the oldest continuously operating gay and lesbian bar in the Bay Area and possibly the second oldest in the United States (the Doubleheader in Seattle, opened in 1934, is likely the oldest). But like so much of pre-1960s gay life, most of what we know about the bar is based upon rumors, conjecture, and fuzzy memories. If there are any old photographs of the tavern or its patrons, they were tucked away years ago in a photo album, hidden from family or neighbors.”

Club Drama: Now @ White Horse | Queer Oakland

Do you enjoy great music and a fun night out with friends? Some of my friends are spinning great tunes down at White Horse on the first Saturday of every month.

DJs Starr, Lifeline and Daniel Skellington will be rocking the dance floor while the White Horse staff mixes up great drinks. The staff is friendly and the drinks are strong. What more could you ask for?
