Swinging Both Ways

The Hella Gay Comedy Show is normally a once-a-month event featuring LGBT comics, but this month the tables are turning and straight comics are performing gay comedy. Plenty of straight actors play gay guys on television and in movies and porn, and now straight comedians are going to play gay comedians on stage, too. The Hella Gay Comedy Show is putting on a one-night "Gay for Pay Comedy Show" featuring local straight comics either acting gay or telling jokes that a gay comic would tell, presumably. It's unclear whether they'll be wearing different kinds of clothes than they'd normally wear, or hats that say "I'm Gay" on them, or what, but part of the fun of going will definitely be finding out. Hosted by local LGBT comedian and actor Charlie Ballard, the lineup features six straight male comedians from the Bay Area.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
