THE SAND BAR
Welcome to The Sand Bar, the notorious tavern where most gay folks in Bayetteville and the surrounding area get together. Come in through the back door off the alley. The bar is at the end of that long hallway. Pull up a stool and let hunky Cody the bartender get you a beer or mix up one of his famous margaritas. Make yourself comfortable and have a look around. You never know who you re going to meet here.
Those punks over by the jukebox are Del and his buddy Slags. Chances are they're up to no good. The kid standing near them is Fred who's had a crush on Del since even before Del started hustling. That redheaded guy at the table by the dance floor is Kevin. He's got a girlfriend waiting for him at home, but lately he and Cody have been making eyes at one another. At the end of the bar Jack-O is swaying on his stool and going on to Heather who's killing time waiting for her latest lady friend to get off work at the mall. Sitting alongside them looking like a cardinal sin in that skin tight black dress is Bruschetta. She's nice enough, but don t cross her. The pock-marked guy down at the other end of the bar sucking on a longneck is Leo. He owns this place and lives upstairs. He opened The Sand Bar after being convinced the town needed a gay bar by his best friend Sister who's the one in the flannel shirt with one boot on the bar rail waiting his turn at pool.
Make yourself comfortable and stay a while. What's being offered is a glimpse inside the intertwined loves, dreams, downfalls and dramas of the these folks as well as several others. Along the way there'll be plenty of sex, some laughs and even some tears. Though it may not be pretty or always nice, The Sand Bar isn't a place you're likely to soon forget and the people who've come to call it home are even more memorable.
