Iconic gay bar slated to close granted reprieve
The Boom Boom Room, an iconic gay bar in Laguna Beach, Calif., threatened with closing, has gained an 11-month extension on its lease. The bar, a well-known gay hangout since the mid-1970s that’s part of the Coast Inn, was scheduled to be razed to make way for an upscale hotel. Los Angeles Times (free registration) (8/18)
