Giovanni's closing...earlier on Saturdays that is

Went into Philly last night. First went to Giovanni's Room around 8:00pm only to find it closed--they were closing early on Saturdays now at 7:00pm instead of 10:00 as before. As someone who lives an hour's drive away from the city but who perfers to buys his gay-themed books from an actual gay bookstore instead of Amazon or a nearby Borders, I found that very frustrating. Later that evening I heard a rumor that the store would soon be closing altogether, which would suck indeed if that happened, since I've patronized that store over the years.

Bike Stop was jumping. A visitng motorcycle club from NYC was hosting a bar night on the main floor. Saw quite a few guys from the Philadelphians that night. Also finally got to meet face-to-face with a follow blogger. Overall it was a good time.

I can't see Giovanni's Room closing completely. That would be a bad break for the gay and lesbian community of Philly if it does.

I hope Giovanni's Room doesn't close that would be another nail in our community coffin since Millinnium has closed too. Plus its a great alternative to going to bars if you want to be amongst the gay community. Maybe Ed just wants to retire and focus on his internet sales. I will post something on Phillyblog.com and see what the community thinks. BTW nice blog.
