Since we were just dying for a reason to jet off to Philly for the weekend:

R Family Vacations and the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC) are proud to announce the ??R Family Philly Weekend,?? March 10-11, 2007. This excursion marks the first time the acclaimed vacation company has offered a family-friendly, gay-friendly getaway in a city. Packages, which go on sale on Wednesday, November 29, 2006, include luxury hotel accommodations and day and evening activities.

That’s “R Family Vacations,” as in Rosie O’Donnell and wifey Kelli’s gay cruise line. And while it’s embarrassing enough that they’re trying to push a holiday without the boat, is their “50s themed bowling party” really a bullet point to advertise? Perhaps we really need to take another diversity class; we’ve been thinking all lesbians collect art and sip lattes like those L Word girls.
