Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: April 30–May 2, 2021

Disneyland opens this weekend, a sure sign of our “Covid Comeback in California”.  As is yet another new restaurant and nightclub gaining favor with the planning commission and on to city council approval:  Chill Bar’s Rob Giesecke and husband, William Vastardis, are behind “Reforma”, which will be in the J.W. Robinson building across from the A + D Museum.
