Background: From their legendary and elaborately decorated Halloween extravaganza to their weekly happy hours, the Dulles Triangles know how to have a good time. Bruce Loggie, president of the group, says they have a great mix of people, from singles to couples to men to women. Loggie says that in such a mix everyone gets along fabulously, and the regular Thursday night happy hours at Bowman’s Lounge in the Reston Sheraton are like a gay version of Cheers, where everybody knows your name.
