Friday Is Coming! We’ve Got Parties in Singapore, Thailand, and, Again, All Over the U.S. of A.

Posted on September 30, 2010 by Grindr Team

We’ve just hit the middle of our Million Man Celebration Week, and the parties just keep on coming. For Friday night, we’ve got two bashes on the lovely continent of Asia, while the rest are steadfastly within the North American sphere. First up, check out Singapore‘s whimsical get-together at PLAY Bar & Club, kicking off at 21:00. Never to be outdone by their nearby Indonesian neighbors, Thailand‘s gay-friendly Phuket Island—roughly the size of Singapore, according to their calculations—is hosting a party at Connect Guesthouse in Paradise Complex. There’s even a free snack buffet! Now, for the American celebrations: we know we already hit up New York City, Philly, Miami Beach, and L.A. already. But we’re doing it again on Friday night. Where else can you find us? In Canada (Victoria), Louisiana (New Orelans), Florida (St. Petersburg), Massachusetts (Haverhill), Washington (Bremerton), Texas (Dallas), Nevada (Las Vegas and Reno), and Chicago (Oak Park).
