10th ANNIVERSARY PARTY (Nov 13-15, 2015)

Come celebrate BEAR ALBANY's 10th Anniversary with a weekend of partying, fun, brotherhood, and joy, as we raise money to provide people living with HIV/AIDS some holiday joy!

Always lots to do on a beautiful Fall day in the Capital Region -- leaves, wineries, museums.

We will be meeting at 1pm at the Niine Pin Ciderworks tasting room, 929 Broadway, Albany, NY, to taste some delicious ciders. Cider and nibbles for purchase. Afterwards, we will head down the block to Tanpopo, Albany's Ramen Shop at 893 Broadway to slurp some noodles!

Ramen not your bowl of soup? Wolff's Biergarten and Druther's Brewing are also in the neighborhood!

Early Breakfast? Dolan's @ 75 Central Avenue, opens at 8am and serves a great breakfast and brunch. Late Breakfast? Meet for Brunch at McGeary's at 12:00 noon. It's always a fun little weekend crowd with really great food.


Most of you should be familiar with the Marriott Townplace Suites (22 Holland Ave. Albany, NY). As always, be sure to ask for the "BEAR ALBANY DISCOUNT" when calling to get our special rates (518) 860-1500. There's no event registration fees and be sure to take advantage of the hotel's FREE SHUTTLE so you don't have to drive to the bars! Then, once you're out at the bars, ask one of the Bear Albany gentlemen about the hospitality suite for complimentary refreshments and fun when the bar party is over.
