From Bailey’s to Planit

We’ve moved the March 4 dinner from Bailey’s to the lesbian-owned Planit Restaurant and Lounge at 285 Portage Avenue because they have a dance event (“Flashback Friday”) that night.

The Planit website says: Come and dance the night away to all your favorites from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s with DJ Adam Scott! He will take over The Planit for a night of cheap drinks, good eats and wicked beats! Hi balls $4.50 and Domestic Beers $4.25. In the spirit of PRIDE we will be giving out FREE Pride Bracelets and Lanyards! First come first served!

Join the LACE gals anytime after 6:30 p.m. If you haven’t already done so, please RSVP to praxis2121@gmail.com by March 1 so we can grab the right-sized table.

If you have are interested in joining in the fun and have not yet “registered”, please contact Lorraine at missps@mts.net
