SDGLN Weekly Wrap: Nov. 2 - Nov. 8, 2019

Here's everything we covered in SDGLN this week.

As we fell back for fall, some new businesses are looking forward to a great holiday season. We covered a few of them this week such as Sir & Son, a new men's lifestyle store at the Eitol Towers, Humanity! on University Avenue and the historic Club San Diego which recently got a whole new look. 

We also reportered on the attack by several men toward patrons at a gay bar in Boston. 

And on the social scene, Rich's is throwing a Sausage Party on Saturday in the style of their famous WTF events. 

These stores and so much more in this week's SDGLN Weekly Wrap.

COMMENTARY

Reverend Irene Monroe discusses the play "Admissions": Sometimes the best way to look at oneself is through a play. Joshua Harmon’s timely and satirical drama “Admissions” is one such production, and it’s now appearing here in Boston. The play is not about the college admissions scandal involving wealthy parents who cheated, bribed, lied, and laundered money to assure their children’s entry into elite schools - like former “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman and “Full Houses” star Lori Loughlin.

CAUSES

Charles Rhines was on death row in South Dakota for stabbing a 22-year-old man back in 1992. He was executed yesterday despite evidence presented to the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) that some on the jury were biased against gays. SCOTUS rejected that motion.
