Last night I went to a gay networking event at the Clifford Still Museum. Mack cancelled at the last minute because it took him an hour to get home from work on the bus. Double A also cancelled because he had an emergency root canal yesterday afternoon. Paddy met me there. Paddy brought a guy he dated a few times who had recently moved to Denver from London. There’s no lust connection so the guy has been transitioned into the friend column.
The museum was filled with mostly good looking, well-dressed gay men. There were a few exceptions. One guy was wearing basketball shorts and a flannel shirt while another was wearing a nice suit with hiking boots. Really?
I only met three people. Most of the guys were already in established conversation groups when I arrived. I find it hard to meet people under these circumstances. Paddy, Mr. London and I hung out most of the evening.
The museum recently opened a new exhibit of Still’s works. I was more interested in seeing the new exhibit than I was meeting and greeting. So I toured the museum snapping pictures with my phone while contemplating the masterpieces on display.
Art always enriches my soul so it turned out to be a good night. The two hour event was soon ending. Paddy and Mr. London headed off to dinner while I headed home.
