2013 is upon us and we’re once again getting together to celebrate the end of the holiday season with our Polar Bear weekend. What better way to say goodbye to holiday music, tinsel garland, and family obligations, then to snuggle up with a bunch of hunky guys acting like big warm polar bears. The theme for this event is light and relaxed, so wear something that’s a nice cool winter white or light icy blue colors to show everyone that you’re calm, cool, and ready for our furry season of giving.

Hotel Information

We’re back at the Marriott Townplace Suites and as always, be sure to ask for the Bear Albany DISCOUNT when calling to get our special rates (518-860-1500). As always, there’s no event registration fees and the hotel has a FREE SHUTTLE so you don’t have to drive to the bars!

Friday Evening

POLAR BEAR weekend kicks off on Friday Jan 18th @ WaterWorks Pub for our traditional BEARAOKE MEAT & GREET (76 Central Ave). It’s a great time to “meat” new friends and “greet” buddies that you haven’t seen in a while. WaterWorks Pub always has a great atmosphere, awesome drink specials, free pizza & wings, and NO COVER for all of our BEAR ALBANY buds. See who’s going…

Saturday Evening

At 9pm, come out to ROCKS Bar for the POLAR BEAR main event (77 Central Ave). Be sure to wear something with cool winter white or light icy blue colors and maybe you’ll land yourself your very own abominable snowman to keep you warm. As always, we’ll have great drink specials, FREE PIZZA around midnight, and plenty of cute guys to befriend all night long. And while you’re exploring every DARK CORNER of the bar, remember that what happens in Albany, stays in Albany. See who’s going…

Sunday Brunch

Our favorite place is closed for the holiday weekend, so we’re doing Brunch at the Gateway Diner unless something else pops up in the meantime. Swing by anytime between 9am and 1pm. The food is great and the staff is friendly. See who’s going…
