reading this paper, and wondering what to do
and where to go. the Gay Switchboard will be
sponsoring a gay bake off that will give you
plenty to do.
Beginning at 4pm at the Barn, 710 Pacific, on
Sun., Dec, 11, the bake off will offer awards for
the best dessert in various categories—pies,
cakes, cookies, etc. The entry fee for each dessert is $5, and all goodies will be auctioned off
or sold by the piece later in the evening. There
will be plenty of celebs there, so be in your best
The Switchboard would prefer that you call
your entry in beforehand to eliminate the possibility of a massive pie-jam at the door, but if
you care to risk it, just bring your goodies to
the door of the Barn and you'll be taken care of.
AM proceeds will benefit the Gay Switchboard.
