Why? We're throwing the hottest party of the year at "twentyeight degrees," 1 Appleton Street in Boston's South End. Twentyeight degrees is one of Boston's newest and chicest night spots. The owners, Carl Christian and Bill Emery, are throwing this amazing party to kick-off our state-wide media campaign.
Even if it might (or might not!) bring in less revenue per event, I really wish they'd hold an event that would appeal more to families, working-class people, people of color, older people, and so forth. It doesn't even have to be a fundraiser -- they could hold their next political victory celebration or award presentation at a neighborhood bar and grill instead of a downtown hotspot. They're a very vocal and financially powerful presence in the queer/ally community, and I wish they'd also use their power to make our community more welcoming to a more diverse group of people.
