New Year is my holiday; I can sweep away 2003 and file it in the memory box. I hope your holidays were fabulous. I'll be heading to Scot's for their New Year's Day Hangover Party.

Went to the Bucks Christmas party. Packed. The Barony were also partying there for charity – they're everywhere at the moment. Sierra looked stunning as always, and Alexandra sang with that great voice of hers. They were also at Star Gaze, which was another fabulous show, and at the Annex; I missed that one, but graysong took some great pix. Hi Rho!!

JJJ

The Closet's annual pre-New Year's Eve party was also a blast, with Creaoke and a bunch of great singers. Weird huh? A New Year's Eve party in the middle of December.

JJJ

Big Chicks is still going strong and was hopping the night I dropped in with Kirk; no doubt about it, Michelle is the most loved bar owner in town. She is the Goddess.

Nightspots is 100% behind Michelle and Big Chicks.

JJJ

Hung out with Sarabia and Maria from Man's Country at Clarks on Clark, which, after midnight, is the wildest place in town. Those

bartenders are crazy!!
