Well, another week is behind
and what a week it was. I have
spent the past two weekends out
on the road checking on things a-
round the Southwest. My many
thanks to Eddie Timms in Dallas
for a wonderful dinner party during my stay there. Also thanks
go out to the Bayou Lnading's John
Stahl and the Old Plantation's
Charlie Hott for their hospitality.
This past weekend I made it
to New Orleans where the hospitality of Jerry and Tex (in fact,
the entire bar staff) at the Bourbon Pub and Parade has always
been outstanding. In fact, our
cover this week is just a sample
of the bartenders at the Pub.
Jerry is the one with the moustache and curly hair, and Rick,
well sit in my face!!!, is the one
in the white pants. We'll have
more photos in the next few weeks
of these two hot numbers.

For those of you traveling
New Orleans way, there's a hot
little restaurant at 733 Bourbon
Street right in the heart of the
traffic called Jeleme'. The food
is fantastic, and it really is your
kind of establishment.
And speaking of eating, in
Houston there's Tooter's. The
only gay eating establishment in
the Bayou City continues to be
one of the most popular after
hour places around.
For those of you in Houston,
TANGIER is no more. The bar
closed its doors to gays last week
and will no longer cater to gays.
AFTER DARK Book Store in
ouston really seems to be catching on with the crowds as it is
fast becoming one of the most
popular places in town. For
those of you who haven't found
it yet, it's where the old Hi Kamp
used to be on Travis.

The governor told a press
conference last May he believes
that pot violations are not very
serious, and therefore, that
marijuana smokers should not be
sent to jail.
According to the National Organization for the Reform of
Marijuana Laws, the Vermont
legislature has so-far failed to
reduce pot penalties, so Governor Salmon has done it himself
--by simply pardoning marijuana offenders.
