It's finally Summer at the Guesthouse! Well it's still 2 weeks away but with the pool open, gorgeous weather and the launch of our summer lunch menu, cocktails and more it sure feels that way!
Shaken not stirred! We worked with our bartender David and reached out to some of our favorite mixologists to put together a fabulous summer cocktail menu. We tried some out last weekend and they were a huge hit! We will still continue to sell our signature drinks including Sex in the Mountains and the Lost River Kiss Martini. But for summer we decided to introduce some old fashioned classics as well as some refreshing summer drinks. Some sample drinks include our new Pride Punch, Torched Cherry Mojito, Cucumber Cooler (featuring Hendricks gin), Makers Old Fashioned, Cadillac Margarita and DAC's Manhattan to name a few.
It's time to get HAPPY! We have launched a weekly Saturday afternoon happy hour! Come join us, our guests and the Lost River community for cocktails on the patio! We have the music going and it's been a great time to socialize with friends and neighbors!
Guesthouse Family Weekend - August 10th - 12th. As you know, we have an 16 and over policy for our guests. The Guesthouse has always been a venue geared for adults who want to relax! We recognize that several of our patrons and weekend friends are parents and we plan to have a couple "family friendly" weekends. The first will be the weekend of August 10th - 12th. We will have some events for our guests and community for the little ones as well as a pool party and special menu! We realize kids aren't really interested in filet or short ribs! The Lounge will still be adults only that weekend!
Happy Pride! June is Pride Month in Lost River! The Guesthouse has been a gay-owned and operated facility for over 30 years. ALL guests are always welcome here as long as you come with an open mind and an open heart. We are THRILLED to be part of Washington DC's Capital Pride this year with several of our fellow Lost River businesses. And with that, the Guesthouse has launched a brand new website: Discover Lost River. This website will feature gay-owned and friendly businesses in and around Lost River. We plan to expand this website as a central place for guests, weekend visitors and locals to check and visit as we plan to integrate a community calendar feature. We were also pleased to be hosting guests and events for guests attending the Fairness West Virginia in July. For more details click here. The Guesthouse has also welcomed winners of our silent auction donation with the Mautner Project and Equality Virginia. If you are in Washington DC next week, please be sure to support our friends at the Mautner Project for the Men of Mautner event at Cobalt. The Guesthouse has donated a weekend package for the silent auction. For more details, click here.
So here's to Summer 2012 and a Happy Pride to all!
