Beverly to P-Town

After four long hours on the road, I finally made it to P-Town, my first destination of the week. I’m staying for two nights. First night at the BrassKey – Second night at Fairbanks Inn.

BrassKey has 9 guest houses, 41 rooms with either a queen or king size bed and 1 room has 2 twin beds. The average age of the guests is 40, mature and sophisticated traveler. Seventy percent are gay and one would hope that the other 30% realizes that before booking. (Though some have been surprised) Sixty percent are repeat customers, often booking for the following year as part of their checkout process.

Now open year round and providing concierge services, Brass Key is available for weddings (many of which have been for the “straight laced”), workshops, events and reunions. At Christmas time they participate in the HollyFolly, aka, house tours of P-Town. Joe, the morning guy, makes his famous bread pudding for the event.

My visit here was enjoyable. It felt weird being amongst many guys and not having someone hit on me, but they were certainly friendly enough. I met the following guys: Neil who’s originally from Australia, now living in New York with his partner; Suist and John from Texas; Jason and Daniel from Washington State; others whom I didn’t get to talk with were from the UK (their accents gave them away) as well as other parts of the US.

That night, Neil and I went to Lobster Pot for dinner and met karen and Harvey Zucker who sat at the table next to us. They’re from New York but have a summer place in P-Town.
