    I heard that Window Media’s ousted investor David Unger was at the event. He had his hairy BF with him.


    I know Robby and all of the staff … Tony, Travis, Chris, Earnie … all of them and I have to say that in this day and age, I still can’t believe that the police would still do things like this. I really feel for all of the guys @ The Eagle … they try so hard to keep it clean and nice for all of us who patronize the bar … this won’t scare me off and I really wish that the entire gay community in and around Atlanta would show up and show their support for Robby and the guys! They’re open every night but Sunday … so please, show your support. I, for one, will still be there in my underwear. ;)
