    • Los Compadres Neighborhood, Palm Springs, CA

    Keep the holiday spirit going between Xmas and New Year at our fabulous MAX holiday party in Palm Springs! 

    Following the success of our Halloween/Gay Pride events, MAX Chairman Mike Barsul and Event Champion Lorenzo Taylor are organizing an elegant “Pink” cocktail party for locals and out-of-town MAX guests in a stunning Los Compadres neighborhood private residence.

    The fun starts with piano music on the baby grand and entertainment.  Enjoy a refreshing signature “pink’ cocktail or pour a glass of rose, as we nibble on tasty upscale appetizers (shrimp, pig-in-blankets, salami, watermelon coolers, etc).

    We’re also planning the wackiest “pink elephant” gift exchange, so bring a wrapped gift – something sexy, provocative or downright dirty – and trade and steal your way until you go home with something even more fun than you brought. 

    We’re asking that everyone wear something pink – even if it’s only your socks…or go pink from head to toe, if you dare.

    This activity is limited to 35 guys and will likely sell out. Purchase your $15 advance tickets here or pay $25 at the door (if space available).  Address will be provided after payment for tickets.

    We can also use help with set up and clean up, so please let Lorenzo know if you would like to volunteer or if you have questions: Lorenzo_max@aol.com.

    Join MAX for The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD theater broadcast of the George Gershwin opera Porgy and Bess.   The opera will be simulcast to the Century Theatre in in the Westfield San Francisco Centre on Saturday, February 1st, starting at 9:55 AM.

    Porgy and Bess is an English-language opera filled with an embarrassment of rich melodies from the American songbook.  The songs just roll out one after another as this tragic love triangle plays out in the Catfish Row section of Charleston.  The story follows the attempts of a crippled street beggar to rescue Bess from Crown, her violent and possessive lover, and from Sportin' Life, her Happy Dust dealer.

    Among the songs included in Porgy and Bess are:

    • Summertime
    • A Woman Is a Sometime Thing
    • My Man's Gone Now
    • I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'
    • Bess, You Is My Woman Now
    • Oh, I Can't Sit Down!
    • It Ain't Necessarily So
    • I Loves You, Porgy
    • A Red Headed Woman

    The theatre is readily accessible from BART.  You can enter the Westfield Center directly from the Powell Street BART station.

    We'll meet in the lobby of the Century Theatre on the 5th floor of the Westfield Centre by 9:30 AM to give everyone time to get any refreshments and get settled before show begins at 9:55 AM.  The opera runs three hours and twenty-five minutes.

    After the opera, those interested can join us at The Rotunda restaurant in the nearby Neiman Marcus for a 1:45pm lunch (deposit required).  The Rotunda is a short 10-minute walk from the theatre.

    For dues-paying members and their guests, we have reserved a block of 6 tickets midway back and left of center in the theatre.  The seats are F14 - F17 and G14 - G15.  You may view the seating chart for this theatre auditorium here.

    The cost for the pre-purchased tickets to watch the opera is $29.  To cancel your theatre ticket, email event co-champion Paul Munro at paul.munro@maxsf.org with Porgy and Bess in the subject line.  Registration deadline Thursday, January 30th.   Sorry, no refunds after Thursday, January 30th.

    For lunch we will be enjoying a five course lunch at a five star restaurant.  While the restaurant will be serving a set menu, they will be able to accommodate someone who is vegan or has other dietary concerns.

    Cruise price starts at $419 a person plus taxes, fees, and gratuities based on two in the room.  On board an optional dinner will include a chef’s dinner in the main dining room that is one of a kind and not to miss!
