The Bear community is nothing if not resilient. Faced with the confusion of conflicting reports over the legitimacy of this year’s BeachBear weekend as presented by alleged owner Craig Jungwirth, the bear community has formed its own ad hoc party. Given that many visitors to BeachBear Weekend had already booked flights to Fort Lauderdale before it became obvious that the schedule of events as previously listed on the event’s website were neither authentic or happening, some are assembling at their former stomping grounds at the Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Beach (440 Seabreeze Blvd.). In addition, Wolf Bar (2209 Wilton Dr, Wilton Manors, FL 33305) has opened to doors to BeachBear attendees. Former sponsors Hunters (2232 Wilton Dr, Wilton Manors, FL 33305) and Village Pub (2283 Wilton Dr, Wilton Manors, FL 33305) have also extended the welcome mat for the hairy big guys.
