Golden Girl

Golden Girl Bea Arthur
Saturday night we had our gayest evening yet. We bought half-price tickets to “An Evening with Bea Arthur” at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco. We first met a friend for drinks and dinner at Bambuddha Lounge. It is a very trendy, small plate, Pan Asian restaurant not far from the theatre.

The theatre holds just over 900 people. When we got to the theatre door it became obvious that the sold out performance was going to be a drama queen love fest. It was kind of thrilling being in the same room with roughly 880 gay men. Bea Arthur is very well know for her TV roles in “Maude” and “The Golden Girls” during the 70’s and 80’s. I loved hearing about her stories during her Broadway years in the 60’s. She was the original matchmaker in “Fiddler on the Roof” and starred opposite Angela Lansbury in the original “Mame”. For being 83 years old, she put on a wonderful show.

I am jealous. She is my favorite Golden girl. :)

I love me some Bea Arthur. I didn't really watch Golden Girls -- rather, she made a big impact on me in Maude.
