Throughout each year, area restaurants host “Dine Out” events to show their support of the LGBTQ+ community and have become some of our most popular events.  These events also allow, for those interested, to join our attending board members for a meal and provide feedback, ask questions or just enjoy the company of others in our community.  Prior such events have been hosted by Melting Pot, Cru, Barley’s and Wild Wings Café.
