MENDOCINO (KCBS RADIO) — Little River Inn, Mendocino celebrates LGBTQ Pride.

Are you feeling the Pride vibes June is LGBTQ Pride month and all around the Bay and beyond there are special events and happenings. In the first of a few Pride features I traveled to Mendocino recently to learn about it’s upcoming Pride Chasing The Rainbow weekend.

Little River Inn, Mendocino is among the coastal properties partaking in this 3 day long Pride celebration.  Proprietors and husband and wife team Chef Marc & Callie Dym are excited to welcome LGBTQ travelers this month and always. They have added a Pride PALOMA to the cocktail menu - see the recipe below. A Pride sprinkled desert for your eating pleasure is also on the Little River Inn dinner menu. My partner Rick and I have been traveling to Mendocino for years and Little River Inn has long been a favorite spot.

Boho chic Mendocino County is Northern California’s secret and welcoming weekend retreat for all. Known for its dramatic coastline, towering redwoods, charming inns, award-winning wines, and a heritage of local cuisine, the area is just a three-hour drive from San Francisco. This year, for the first time ever, a special Mendocino Pride Chasing the Rainbow experience will be held from Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23, making it the perfect place to unwindbefore San Francisco Pride (June 29-30)

I hope you will join me as emcee for Mendocino Pride for a weekend of celebration, food, fun + friendship. Get your festival pass for the weekend and enjoy special discounts and offerings throughout Mendocino County all weekend. For more information on Mendocino Pride head here.

Cheers and HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, Liam!
