"Warm Weather Social" at the site of the former "Mr. P".


Last night, “Go Gay DC” which bills itself as “Metro DC’s LGTBQ Community Club” held a “Warm Weather Social at “Aura” on P Street, near 23rd, and also directly W of Dupont Circle. This is the second floor of a property that also runs a Moroccan restaurant.  As the event ended, snow showers and a strong cold front moved into the DC area. The site used to be the home of a bar called "Mr. P's".

I tried the restaurant, and tried the salmon.  There is a lot of décor similar to an exhibit at Epcot in Orlando. The service was slow.

But the gathering was festive enough.  The space seems to have a small dance floor and movie theater, and a lot of mid-eastern décor.  All of this tracks back to some of the hypocrisy of the Arab world.  Morocco was at one time viewed as a “cruising destination” which is something that the religious culture of the area does not appreciate.

There were some connections, maybe even to the community assistance effort in north Arlington once a month at a local Methodist church,
