TRAVEL The Dunes Resort: A gay Midwest mecca
They ate pizza and drank margaritas that September day in 1998, brainstorming their future. Partners Mike Jones, Danny Esterline and Greg Trzybinski had just finished moving furniture out of a cottage in Douglas, Mich., when they came up with the idea to buy a gay bar.
The next day, they called a realtor friend of theirs. And so changed the rest of their lives - and the gay scene in the Midwest. On May 26, 1999, the trio took over ownership of The Douglas Dunes, which has since been renamed The Dunes Resort.
"Well, I guess you shouldn't eat pizza, drink margaritas and try to plan your life.... You just never know what's going to happen," Jones said, laughing.
