FOOTBALL FANTASY

Next to being at the Super Bowl here in the US, I would absolutely love to be in the Dominican Republic to watch the activities among gorgeous, excited Dominican men. Anywhere I can watch Dominique will suit me just fine!



















dr1 reports the following:
Local US football fans have a date on Sunday, 1 February 7pm at the kick-off event organized by the Dominican League of American Football (LDFA), Dominican Raiders team at Beer House Cafe. The Super Bowl XLIII game matches the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Arizona Cardinals. The gathering will be at the Beer House Cafe, (Tiradentes 28, 2nd floor, Naco, between Max Henriquez Urena street and Gustavo Mejia Ricart avenue). The Dominican League of American Football will present their exhibition and international games scheduled for 2009.

February is the preferred month for playing football in the DR because of the cooler temperatures. The Dominican League of American Football was re-launched in 2007. Dominican-born Luis Castillo plays professionally with the US National Football League's San Diego Chargers. Castillo is committed to promoting the sport in the DR. For more information on the LDFA, contact Ross Levy-Tovar at 809 564-6251 or 829-375-0989.

CAN YOU CUMBIA?

Costa Rica is often said to feel like paradise. It has lush jungles, spectacular beaches, abundant wildlife and varied landscapes.
For gay travelers in particular, Costa Rica has gained a well-earned reputation as a comfortable place to visit. The discos may not rival those in New York, but where else can you climb a volcano with your lover during the day, then watch a drag show at night? It is recommended you start your evening at Cockatoo. This is a mainstay in San Jose and you can find out where to go from there. Their number is 506-777-5143.
Costa Rica has a bit for everyone. Spend time in the jungle, on the beach and in the city. Weary travelers can relax, or otherwise, at Sauna Hispalis. Some tour operators offer all-gay tours, but it is said to be easy enough to set one up on your own. You will meet plenty of gay people along the way. Ask them about Club LaAvispa or Club O.
One can fly into the capital, San Jose. It has charming architecture, a lively gay nightlife and a couple of nice museums. If you feel adventurous then head to Lake Arenal, a couple hours out of the city and high into the rainforests.

The Pacific coast is hot and sunny during dry season. Here you will find sandy beaches and national parks for hiking or viewing wildlife. There is also a bit of gay life here and a gay beach. The gay, clothing-optional, beach at Manuel Antonio has a beautiful waterfall. The beach, called La Playita, offers shady palm trees. Ask the locals to assist with access unless you know how to watch the tides.

Power Couple

I've always desired to photograph a dynamic duo. A pair of hot guys with distinguishing characteristics. A couple similar to the one pictured here would be nice.

What's Going On??

I came across this clip which discusses the deportation practices of the US as it pertains to Dominicans. The clip is insightful, but what I did not hear were any reasons or explanations as to WHY the people are being deported in such large numbers. Perhaps the readers in the New York area can shed some light on the subject.

Just Some Stuff

I received an email about this new service for gay men of color. It looks interesting and I just may have to use it sometime. I have also placed gayblacktravel in the links section.

Brrrr...it's been quite frigid here. There are a couple of winter storms moving this way. I'm looking forward to my Santo Domingo getaway in February!

Here are some handsome guys to heat up your day.
