EBAR.COM>>>>>>> BLOGS SPORTS: Outgames’ ceremonies and sports canceled at last minute by Roger Brigham by Roger Brigham Organizers of the 2017 World Outgames canceled the opening and closing ceremonies and almost all of the sports competitions Friday, May 26, the day the event was scheduled to begin, angering athletes en route to or already in Florida. “Athletes found out about the cancellation via an email message sent at 12:02 p.m. (EDT) on Friday,” distance runner Andrea Hermann told the Bay Area Reporter. “Many athletes had already arrived and checked into their hotels. I found out after arriving in Florida while heading to the host hotel. When I arrived at the hotel, we immediately asked about leaving early as we would not be staying the whole week for events that were not taking place. The Marriott Stanton South Beach staff were not told about the cancellation. They told us they had already checked in 90 rooms of people here for the games.” Although the Outgames, which were set to start on Friday in Miami, had been plagued by fundraising failures and poor registrations for more than a year, had previously canceled eight scheduled sports, and had reportedly not paid any of the permit fees required for individual events, organizers were .....

NIGHTLIFE: The Mod Couple Mario Cantone and Jerry Dixon at Feinstein's June's abloom with gaiety at Feinstein's at the Nikko, where the calendar is studded with bookings for glamorous Pride Month nights on the town. Our town's swankiest jewel box cabaret will welcome Ben Rimalower's hit off-Broadway comedy, Patti Issues ­–about his obsession-turned-friendship with La Lupone­– on June 9 and 10; Trump confidante Katya Smirnoff-Skyy on the 15th; sweet 'n' hunky former-Mormon crooner Spencer Day on the 16th and 17th; lafftastic non-lipstick lesbian Marga Gomez on the 21st; and Lorna Luft –youngest daughter from the pack of Gumm– with tales of Mama Garland and songs of Prides past, on the 23rd and 24th. But at the top of the marquee, kicking it all off on June 2 and 3 with How Long Has This Been Going On? ­­–a singing, wisecracking celebration of coupledom– are the Stiller and Meara of modern marriage, the Steve and Eydie of the sodomite set: Mario Cantone and Jerry Dixon. Cantone –most firmly embedded in pop cultural memory for playing wedding planner Anthony Marentino in Sex and the City, and Dixon, a triple-threat New York actor (If/Then, Once On This Island), director, and lyricist, have been together since 1990, and got married five years ago. Dixon has created original musical numbers for Cantone to sing while impersonating Liza Minelli, Bruce Springsteen and others in his one-man solo shows. Laugh Whore won a Tony nomination in 2005 and was later presented as a Showtime special. The couple acted together, under the direction of Cynthia Nixon, in the 2015 off-Broadway play Steve, which the New York Times said "holds up a clear compassionate mirror to...

NEWS: Sausage Factory building for sale by Seth Hemmelgarn The Sausage Factory, an Italian restaurant that's welcomed LGBT diners in San Francisco's Castro district since 1968, will be closing, according to an ad that lists the eatery's building for sale at $4.1 million. The potential sale of the building at 517-519 Castro Street could also mean changes for people associated with the Radical Faerie group who live in an apartment above the restaurant. One of the group's members is hoping to develop a community land trust to take over the property. The ad from real estate firm DeRose and Appelbaum says, "This well-located asset is situated in the prime retail corridor of San Francisco's vibrant and historic Castro district," and the Sausage Factory space "can be delivered vacant at close of escrow." The listing, which notes the 5,340-square-foot building has "vintage Victorian details," also says that the "spacious" apartments on the second and third floors, which contain seven bedrooms altogether, feature "high ceilings, hardwood floors, and abundant sunlight." The projected monthly rental income is $12,500 for the commercial space, and a total of $5,900 for the two apartments, according to the ad. Jesse Oliver Sanford, 39, who's lived in the building for 12 years, is a Radical Faerie and said his roommates are....

THEATRE: Naturally absurd by Richard Dodds When it comes to genres – well, it's best to forget genres when talking about the plays of Jen Silverman. "Collective Rage: A Play in Five Boops" is populated with five wildly different variants on Betty Boop on a collision course with the contemporary world. "The Moors" starts out like a gothic potboiler, at least until a newly hired governess finds herself in a topsy-turvy Bronte world of women. And the kitchen-table setting of "The Roommate" is, in Silverman's description, "like naturalism on speed." Silverman has been carrying the emerging-playwright label for several years, but "The Roommate" is providing her breakout moment. Since its heralded premiere at Louisville's Humana Festival in 2015, it's found its way to multiple regional theaters and is also the play that is now providing her introduction to Bay Area audiences at San Francisco Playhouse. "Part of my experiment with 'The Roommate' was to offer the audience an accessible invitation, and then once they accept that invitation to go into increasingly complicated waters," Silverman said recently by phone. "I'm really drawn to characters who...

NEWS: SF mayoral chief of staff Steve Kawa to retire Steve Kawa, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s longtime chief of staff, is expected to retire in June, the Bay Area Reporter has learned. Kawa, a gay man, has served as a gatekeeper for three mayors, starting as deputy chief of staff under Willie Brown. He then became chief of staff to Gavin Newsom, and stayed in that role for Lee. Gay former Supervisor Bevan Dufty, a longtime colleague and friend, told the B.A.R. that Kawa will be missed. He’s had a monumental career, working for mayors as different as Brown, Newsom, and Lee,” Dufty said, adding that Kawa got his start in City Hall as an aide to former Supervisor Tom Hsieh. Dufty also credited Kawa with stepping in to help....
