G3 events are all about providing quality social experiences for gay men, our friends, and our brothers and sisters in the LGBT+ community. Whether it is one of our monthly happy hours, a brunch, a fundraiser, pool party or special event, all G3 events strive to be a welcoming, fun, and memorable good times.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE | G3 Venues
Tucson used to have a dozen gay bars, but times have changed. LGBT people are no longer "only" welcome at establishments that specifically cater to the community, so we seek out a variety of gay-friendly venues. This doesn't take anything away but rather offers new options. It also has the added benefit of not only keeping our events interesting, but allow us to build relationships with mainstream hospitality and cultural venues, broadening our community's involvement and visibility.
WHEN | Dates and Announcements
Typically we announce the location via eMail to our subscribers as well as on this website and social media at the beginning of each month. We also create a Facebook Event Page every month so guests can RSVP and invites friends.

HOW | Making G3's Special
We bring in extra touches. Things like lighting, additional decor, drink specials and tie-ins with beverage companies, food options, music and entertainment. So, depending on the venue, it might have a country-western flair or a sleek urban vibe. What remains consistent is a great crowd and a welcoming, relaxed environment to hang out in.
OTHER | Not Just Happy Hours
We have hosted both brunch and dinner events which have been a lot of fun, but the size of our crowd makes it a real challenge for restaurants (who are already busy on Friday nights) to host a G3 Happy Hour. A lot of places have enthusiastically offered to host a G3 event but can only handle doing it with a smaller crowd or a less busy night, so we are looking at starting up a new dinner soiree event we're calling "Let's Eat Out!" We don't yet have a start date but look for an announcement this fall!
WHO | Attending a G3
We believe in and embrace the diversity of our community and the human family. G3 welcomes regardless of gender, identity and/or orientation (including our hetero friends and allies). G3 events are open to everyone 21+ to stay within minimum age liquor laws).
RESERVATIONS AND TICKETING
There is no advance ticketing and no need to RSVP to attend a G3 Happy Hour, however sometimes we do require advance reservations when there is a dinner option.
WHAT | G3 Gay Happy Hour
G3's signature event is a once-a-month happy hour that takes place every third Friday (hence "G3") from 5:00 to 9:00PM. Every month we journey to a different Tucson venue, so the atmosphere is always fresh and unique. It's the perfect way to finish up the work week, get together with friends, relax, meet new people and experience new places. If you are new to town, or visiting, a G3 is a great introduction to Tucson
