YARD & GARAGE

garage sale this Sat. & Sun., 7am-6pm,
at 419 Clear Creek, 1 block east of Rt. 3
in League City. Ya'll come on down.
I think my body is improving,
but my self image is a wreck.
It you were born this week: You are sensitive and
creative. You are independent and a bit of a rebel at
heart. You embrace the new and different. Anything
remotely resembling a rut sends you running! You are
sociable, helpful, honest and will speak your mind
almost any time, any place.
ARIES (3-21/4-19): Co-workers
may not be the easiest to get
along with this week. You may
have to bite your tongue for the
sake of the joint effort. Aries.
Look for an old issue to crop
up again and days could end
with the ol' green-eyed
TAURUS (4-20/5-20): The
water needs to be tested,
Taurus. It looked quite inviting,
but before you go diving in.
test it with your toes. Midweek
calls tor thoughtful action, and,
by last day, you may hear that
old, familiar song once more.
GEMINI (5-21/6-20): It's important to know where you stand
financially. You sometimes
tend to buy first, check your
balance later. That won't wash
this week. Gem. Later, Cupid
wants an answer to a difficult
question and week hustles off.
Think before you speak this
week, Moon baby, lest you
open mouth and insert foot.
Remember that constructive
suggestions are much more
easily accepted by others than
are criticisms. Week swings to
LEO (7-23/8-22): Patience will
win the week for you, Leo. You
have a number of options, so
you don't have to jump on the
first bandwagon that comes
along. There are others not far
behind. Watch for a mixed bag
of news and days end dizzily.
VIRGO (8-23/9-22): You considered trying for a certain
brass ring once before and
decided to pass it by. It's coming your way again, Virgo, and
it's just the same as it was. Are
you going to have to make the
decision all over again?! Really!
LIBRA (9-23/10-23): Be prepared to act on your own this
week, Libby. One who should
know what he's doing doesn't,
so it's up to you, Babe. Don't
be distracted by either gossip
or innuendo. Later, watch out
for white elephants and Trojan
Bright ideas could be bird-
brained flops. Don't be carried
away, Scorp. Be leery of one
who talks too much. Later,
obligation stares you in the
face, and it won't go away 'til
you take care of it. Sorry about
Minor setbacks should be considered just that, Saj. They may
cause a few detours, but they
needn't make you cancel the
trip. Expect someone to
change her mind (what else is
new?) and days trip to tipsy
Forthright Capricorn, you don't
like pretense, not one bit. This
week, a number of people
around you seem determined
to play games. You'll spot the
phonies, angel, right off the
bat. Send 'em packing!
AQUARIUS (1-20/2-19): Others
may get all hot and bothered
over nothing this week, Aquari,
but if you'll keep your usual
cool, objective head, you'll be
fine. Before week is through,
grab favorite playmate and get
away from it all!
PISCES (2-20/3-20): Let those
close to you know your feelings
on the matters currently important to you. Don't keep them in
the dark. Later, creative thinking can add dollars to your
piggybank. Days close with
hugs and kisses.^^^^^^^^

Trend by Henry McClurg
A "juice bar" in Houston?
I have in front of me the latest issue of Chicago's Gay Life
newspaper, the leading gay publication in that city.
In the back section, like in the VOICE, they have a listing
of gay bars in the area. There are 76 bars listed, of which two
of them are labeled "non-alcoholic."
I think that's an idea who's time has come in Houston.
I'm not knocking drinking for most people. It's one of life's
pleasures. (As W.C. Fields said in My Little Chick-a-dee, just
before hitting the sack, "Ahh, sleep. One of life's greatest
pleasures—next to drink, of course.")
Alcoholism in the gay community is higher than in other
communities. Now it's not our fault, of course. In the early-
days of coming out, gay bars were it. They were the only
places where there were other gay people out openly. So we
congregated in the bars, following our natural body
instincts for social connections, and, of course, drank. And
as the years rolled on, we drank, and drank, and drank, as
gay bars still continued to be our "community centers."
In our alcohol bars you could just order grapefruit juice or
a Coke. But you know you won't. In a non-alcoholic bar,
you'd have no choice.
To be successful, a non-alcoholic bar would have to have
an identical setup to an alcohol bar: Low lights, great music
over a good sound system, snappy bartenders—and a
variety of exotic drinks (without alcohol) to help keep you
from missing that alcohol taste.
A non-alcoholic bar in Houston would not be a big moneymaker, I don't think. Not yet. But it might turn a moderate
profit. However, the important thing, is that for a lot of gay
people, it could be a place to go where they could have the
temptation of a "social connection" without having the
temptation of alcohol.
