Gay & Away: Phoenix Phurfest 2010

By: Joe Thompson

Are you a bear or just want one? Well, the place for fur, fun and sun this weekend (April 29 - May 3) is Phoenix Phurfest 2010, where the theme is "Bear Blanket Bingo."

(No, I don't make up this stuff. You should have sen their completely AWESOME Battlestar Galactica theme on last year's poster.)


Bears-2 Presented by Bears of the West, it's a weekend of like-minded men growling it up at various poolside events at the host hotel (the Quality
INN & Suites Downtown
where the rates are pretty great); or during bar crawls and brunches at hot spots like Apollo’s, Bunkhouse, Cherry Bar, Kobalt, and The Rock. They also have this big luau planned at Radisson Hotel Phoenix City Center's beautiful Garden
Amphitheatre, with a HOT Luau styled
Polynesian show that's MC’d by Eric Buckmaster and showcases local comedians, fire dancers and more.

There will also be a silent
auction showcasing art, collectibles, and bearaphanalea... NO, I do NOT make this shit up!
