Just call us Methuselah Magazine. We have reached issue #800 of the Nightspots/lines. Some don't even realize we've changed our name ( eh, Juan? ) . But we have changed our style quite a bit. You'd never have seen full ass shots or passed out drag queens circa 1997.
As promised in last week's column, check out pages 12-13 for all the info on The Breast Cancer Benefit for Ronnie Laughter, Sunday, August 7 at @mosphere. Talk to him for one second and you'll be willing to donate your whole paycheck to help assuage his medical bills. Never a more deserving sick boy! I had better see you there ( I will be keeping tabs ) .
Hydrate saw many a birthday this past week. Wednesday they celebrated Ms. Mahal's 19th birthday ( and yet her tits are only about one and a half ) . She was also crowned that night as Dragtastic.com's Entertainer Of the Year. Thanks to all who voted.
Friday was the throw down for Rodney's 19th ( from now on, every
body who has a birthday will be turning 19. It's easier on me ) . Just wait until you hit your twenties, Rodney!
Anyway, stop in to Hydrate on Saturday for the return of Rosabel. For those who remember last year, Rosabel tore up the corner of Cornelia and Halsted. Look for a repeat of the goodness.
What is it about Todd form The Eagle. He's so fucking photogenic! And pliable.
Large apologies to Kelly down at InnExile. I tried like hell to make it to the show for your 18th anniversary, but I was too long at Lollapalooza ( PIXIES FUCKIN' ROCKED ) . Anyway, the good boys at dragtastic.com provided me, and all y'all readers with some fab pix.
I did, however, make it to Nutbush for their 29th anniversary. What is there to say? Just this—there is a whole treasure trove of pictures from that night that you will never see. Well maybe if you see their monthly schedule book. I guess I agreed to something I shouldn't have. Live and learn.
I beginning to love the fuck out of the side bar at Spin. One of the best places I know to melt into the walls with a Martini.
Had a deep one with Mamie at Star Gaze. Contrary to popular belief, people who work at bars ( me included ) have no life outside of bars. There's no time! Mamie, maybe one day you and I will jet off to Brazil and forget all about the grind. I know, the grind is fun. That's why we keep grindin'.
So our friend Jason from Boi ( pronounced, of course, 'BWAH' ) has fired back in our little volleyball game of bitchiness. Check out www.jasonpfreeman.blogspot.com to see what passes for wit with Jason. Hey, honey. See your picture from Crew in the center spread for my retort. It's funny because it's true.
Is it possible Nightspots is going global? There a growing group of folks from the Emerald Isle who are clamoring for the rag over there. This from Joe at Jackhammer. Good lord, the postage!
