Saturday we slept in, had brunch at Circa, went shopping around DuPont ("Let's get some shoes!"), met up with Derek's friend Andy, went back to the hotel and lounged around the pool while Derek "picked up" Miss Sable Carriage, and then headed over to 17th to watch the parade. We met up briefly with Matthew and his boyfriend Michael before the parade, but we were sitting in different spots and it was getting crowded, so we both stayed where we were.
Same parade, different city, for the most part. I saw the UUs, of course, and MCC, and a friend of ours marches with one of the bands in town. As usual, PFLAG got the largest and most sustained amount of cheering and applause, which I always get a kick out of. Otherwise, pretty bland - the only drag queens were in the parade (and the one standing next to me), and I don't remember seeing any floats from the area bars or clubs.
Afterwards we caught up with Matthew and Michael and went back to the hotel to ditch Miss Carriage. We ended up eating at Thai Chef (which was less stellar than it has been in the past), but Matthew and Michael declined to join us as they got into a huge fight over nothing. Silly boys. We did a little more shopping, went back to the hotel to change again, and this time I just waved them off at the door of the hotel room. :) They came back earlier than I would have expected, but they said the place was overrun with lesbians and they weren't digging on the music.
