Tired of trying to network with other homosexual types at, say, the Bar On Church when it's packed wall-to-wall with tweaked Lady Gaga fans? Can't get a word in between fistfights at the Lexington? Will no one listen to your deft business proposal in the backroom of the Powerhouse because they're too busy sexually assaulting you? Well then, head over to a brunch for dot429, billed as a "social network for LGBT professionals."

There will be plenty of morning booze (i.e., bloody marys), phenomenal bites provided by several Top Chefs (Jennifer Biesty from Scala’s Bistro and Jamie Lauren from Absinthe), music by Steve Mak, Brazilian art, and a Yerba Buena Center for the Arts tour by visual arts curator Betti-Sue Hertz (starting at 2 p.m.)

You can RSVP here. Donations are a mere $25, and go to benefit YBCA and GLAAD. (Very cheap for that you're getting in return, folks.)

Straight, gay, bi, curious, and the chaste are all welcome at this Sunday brunch.
