You are cordially invited to the Great Outdoors OC/LB Chapter Holiday Party!

Come and enjoy an evening of cheer as we make merry!

A special note about the restaurant: Beach Garden Social House

As we all know, Covid has been devastating for a number of small businesses with retail and restaurants/bars being especially hard hit during this horrific period.

Therefore we decided to have our Holiday Party at a small business; but not only that but one also owned and operated by a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

As owner Benjamin Gutierrez (Ben G.) has annotated on the restaurant's website:

"Beach Garden is the only bar and kitchen in this community that is owned and operated by a local and a member of the LGBTQ community.  Ben Gutierrez (he/him) felt a need to maintain and celebrate our diverse community by building this new safe space which allows Queer individuals to grow and navigate this sometimes tricky world."

We hope you will join us to not only celebrate the holiday season together, but to also come out in full force to support one of our own gay brothers.

So let's get dressed up in our gay apparel and gather to celebrate goodness and cheer during this holiday season.

The menu at Beach Garden Social House is Latin-American Cuisine which blends crowd favorites with their Hispanic heritage.  Many of the dishes are family creations which had a way of bringing all the families together.

A special selection of menu options are being developed for this occasion.  There will be a vegan/vegetarian option for those so inclined.

Fees for this event:  

$7.50 for Great Outdoor members. 

At this price, you have  to attend!

Guest Registrations will be allowed after November 29  if space is available. Cost: $27.50 for guests of Great Outdoor members.

Better yet:  Have your guest apply for membership for $25; then pay $7.50 for the Holiday Party!  So get the annual membership and attend the holiday Party for $32.50 - Sounds good to me!

Please note  alcoholic or bar beverages (including beer, wine, hard kombucha, to-go-cocktails and others) are available for an extra charge which will be ordered and paid for by the member.

We request you register as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate number of the attendees.  Unfortunately if you have to cancel, we will be unable to refund your fee.

Located in the heart of Alamitos Beach - Long Beach's LGBTQ community, this area is both a residential district as well as home to  local businesses including The Mineshaft, The Brit, The Falcon, Sweetwater Saloon and others; therefore be cognizant of the parking situation in the area.  

Due to the intimate nature of this event all attendees must show or submit proof of vaccination - no exceptions will be allowed.
