Sorry but I don't agree with most of your statement. I have a hard time using the term "upscale" to describe any of the gay bars here, even bonham.

When we have a bar that you can fully relax in and go to the bathroom without standing in a long line first then I will say there is improvement. Anyone who has been to a gay bar here knows how horrendous simply taking a leak can be.

They are all pretty much crap compared to what I have seen outside of SA.

I haven't been to the gay bars in years but if I *had* to go, I would go to bonham exhcange over the strip any time.

I am glad that indoor smoking got banned.
As I said, a lot has changed in the last two years.
