A glittering galaxy of stars came out to support Regina Upright's Quest for the Crown at the Baton. I should have worn my shades!!
Godiva took the stage by storm, and what can you say about Patricia Roberts, except she was more Liza than Liza … it was almost creepy.
It was the best show I've seen in a long time and the crowd loved it. Among the bars who turned out were Maneuvers, Hideaway, Jackhammer and Inn Exile …
Stella Productions and Regina Upright are on a roll …
Hi Jade …
And thanks Jerry for the ego boost. It gets lonely out here in fag-rag land.
Here's something for you to read on Hollywood Beach; if you get too 'excited' you can also use this book to cover your … umm … well, you can use it to cover your excitement. Pick up a copy of Hardcopy: The Men of QsJoint.com; Scenes From CyberSpace 1999-2002 by John Becht. Eighty … count
'em … 80 pages of the hottest full-color men and some titillating text to go along with them. Available at your finest local fag bookstore, or see the ad in this issue for information on how to get it on-line. And you know how to get stuff on-line, don't you boyz …
I dropped into Star Gaze to meet the new chef, Ric Mercado, and peruse the new expanded menu, which is just as yummy as he is.
And who is that new girl bartender? She's cool …
Every Sunday at Spin there's a fabulous BBQ with free weenies and burgers at 4 p.m. Later at 10 p.m. DJ Timmy Loop and VJ Steven Farias take over at one of the best dance clubs in Chicago.
The Nightspots Mafia have been hanging out at Neo's for Planet Earth on Thursdays and tell me it's 'The Place To Be.'
The Nightspots Mafia is an anonymous group of young party people who tip me off about what's hot and what's not. I can't be everywhere, darlings … not at my age.
If you've never been to a gay rodeo, then go this year. Stop putting it off. My friends at ILGRA are the nicest guys and gals you could ever wish to meet. The Windy City Rodeo 2003 is in Crete, Illinois. For tickets call (312) 409-3835 or go visit www.ilgra.com
Who has the complete set of Creaoke ads? I keep bumping into people who collect them. Look for his weekly ads in Nightspots and go sing your tits off at some great bars.
Bobby Love's on a Friday night. Actually, Bobby Love's any night of the week. That's a bar with a real cast of characters.
Estrojam August 7-10 is a Girl Fest all over town. See ad, but my own tips would be Bitch and Animal August 7 at the Vic. Lydia Lunch and Cynthia Plaster Caster at the Metro August 9, and Aerin Tedesco at Subterranean on August 10.
One of my favorite hangouts on a Sunday afternoon is the Manhandler for the free buffet at 6 p.m. It's a bar where men can meet men and the bartenders actually talk to you … whatever next!!
And don't forget BUCKS, BUCKS, BUCKS, BUCKS, BUCKS.
