Penultimate Seattle Pride Party Fun for Saturday, June 25.

OK, we’ve survived the first two days of Pride Weekend 2011, (barely) and today, Saturday June 25 we kick it into high gear with enough events to choke a pass around party bottom. There’s enough beer floating through all the beer gardens on Capitol Hill to quench the thirst of a million thirsty Germans. Pick and choose carefully, people…you want to go to the events that’ll give you the maximum amount of pure entertainment, prideful flavor.
