Vote Your Heart Out: Is 'Hard French' the Best Party in San Francisco?
GayCities and Coors Light are in the final stages of promoting a three-month voting contest to determine which events, sports teams and personalities deserve to be declared the "coldest..." (brrrrain freeze).
In San Francisco, Hunky Jesus in Dolores Park, DJ Haute Toddy, The Fog rugby team and Cookie Dough have already been voted as the winners. When it came to selecting nominees for the Night Out category, we knew the contest wouldn't be taken seriously by GayCities members unless we included the perennial powerhouse of a party, Hard French.
The other nominees include Heklina's Trannyshack, Juanita More's Beat Pig, Bearracuda and I Love Cochina Tonga's. The Stanley Frank/Ambrosia Salad/DJ Taco Tuesday bastard newcomer underdog is nominated solely because anyone trying to make the Lookout cool deserves the equivalent of a Nobel Peace Prize. And if it had been entirely up to me (ok, it kind of was...), I would have also nominated Cockfight and Honey Soundsystem.
I don't know these people.
GayCities has had a torrid love affair with Hard French ever since we sponsored the party's first foray in New York City with director John Cameron Mitchell.
