Femme Friday -- Putting the TG in T.G.I.F!
Lakeside Bar & Grille inside the Red Lion Woodlake, 500 Leisure Lane, Sacramento, CA 95815
6.0pm onwards

*** NO RSVP REQUIRED ***

Please join the Gems at the Lakeside Bar & Grille inside the Red Lion Woodlake for a casual social mixer. Drinks and appetizers are available at Happy Hour prices, starting at just $4, until 7pm.

 Femme Friday

We’ll have a group of tables in our own area, and we will be easy to find. There will be a designated Gems hostess in attendance to welcome you. The quiet lounge ambiance at the Lakeside Bar & Grille is perfect for relaxed conversation and enjoying a drink or two. Afterwards, small groups may choose to go to dinner at a local restaurant, or out to the midtown TG-friendly clubs. Some may choose to linger at the Lakeside and enjoy the appetizers menu instead. The choice is up to you! This is a great place to meet up with friends (or make new ones) and make plans together for the rest of your evening. Can’t get there by 6pm? No problem – as long as you arrive before 7pm, you’ll be sure to connect with our group.

The bartenders and staff love us, and a number of Gems have already made the Red Lion a regular Friday night stop. The Gems also hold our annual Sparkle event at this hotel, so we are valued guests. Do keep in mind, however, that this is a mainstream venue with some public exposure. If you have never been out, or are very concerned about privacy, this meetup may not be right for you. On the other hand, if you just need a little nudge, this could be your big moment!

No RSVP is required – just drop in! We look forward to seeing you at the next Femme Friday!
