The people that work there are passionate about kayaking, and even though they have a shop--- education and sharing their enthusiasm seem to be priority. I highly recommend joining them for a class, an educational trip, a casual Meetup gathering!!!
Where is the funny Youtube video for this one?!
I still can't believe it is gone... I have caught myself wanting to text friends.. 'Let's meet at Vix for HH' as recently as yesterday. Yes, it was not at it's glory-- but it was still an amazing place mostly because of its even more amazing people. I hope whatever goes there will be as F&B, Gay, Locals, College, et al.. friendly as they were.
Stereotypes?! Those of you who are calling the cover girls butchy just because of their hairstyle are the ones perpetuating those stereotypes... if you knew these women, you would know they are far from that; instead they are young, strong, trendy, amazing,-- dare I say feminine, ladies who represent the community well. I have many a straight male friend that visits their bar because they think these girls are smokin hot.. so even without knowing the women behind the looks, not everyone perceives them as dykey or butchy.
To 'And if elected...',
I wish I wasn't labeled or defined by my gay-ness.. but unfortunately I am by the restrictions I face. I don't want to be considered or treated differently, but we are subjected to sub-standard protection and equality from our government. I want the right to visit my partner if they are hurt and in the hospital. I don't want to lose the house we shared together for 20 years because tax laws don't protect me as a spouse... I wish my 8 years of military service wasn't overshadowed by my fear of someone finding out who made me get stars in my eyes and butterflies in my tummy. I could go on...
I am a contributing member of society. I pay taxes, I contribute to local non-profits, I spend my money at local businesses, I am someone's neighbor, I am someone's friend, and I am someone's co-worker. The point is that I am no longer ashamed and I am willing to march to show the community I am here and I matter.
