It was great bumping into Miss Foozie, the hostess with the mostest at @mosphere. Who said the Fooze never went north of Lawrence Avenue?

Is this a regular gig? @mosphere have the yummiest bartenders. Hi Tina! She's yummy ...

Roberta Lo Vella hosted her annual Mary Christmas Show, and … well, words fail me. Here's a clue:

"Here comes Susie Snowflake/Look at her coming down

Tap, tap, tapping on your window pane/To tell you she's in town

Here comes Susie Snowflake/Soon you will hear her say:

Come out everyone and play with me, I haven't long to stay.

"If you want to build a snowman, I'll help you build one, 1-2-3

If you want to take a sleigh ride, Wheeee, the rides on me

Here comes Susie Snowflake/Look at her tumbling down

Bringing joy to every girl and boy/Susie's come to town."

The whole thing was like that, i.e. as camp as a row of tents. And, Cherise dear, if you come on stage with a marshmallow wig, someone will pull out a lighter and try to toast your head … it's a given, especially at Bobby Love's.

There's something seriously wrong with those Bobby Love girls …

Kirk and I had tons o' fun out at the Nutbush. It was karaoke night and one girl had an amazing voice … didn't get her name. I love the suburban bars. Hi Mikie!

And the Hideaway was hopping for their pre-Thanksgiving party, as well.

***

Finally, after years of photographing her and her magnificent headpieces, I got to meet Sassy Trade at the Stella Show at Jackhammer. A real nice guy.

And what can you say about Tamara Lee? A legend …

Stella is slowly recovering from her hysterectomy, and is now coping with the fact that she will never have children; unless she goes to the mall and steals somebody else's … and I wouldn't put that past her either. I should have snatched that mic out of her hand, after she told everyone in the bar I was old and dried up …

… Bitch! I dip my face in a tub of moisturizer before I even think about leaving the house. Anyway, it was a fab show, followed by those delicious Chicago Beef guys. And Dario can sit on my head anytime he wants, especially after I saw him "preparing" himself in the basement with a little "meditation."

***

I hear that a certain Baroness is now shopping at Walgreens

***

Can the guys at Caliber Leathers please e-mail me at sukie@windycitymediagroup.com and let me know when you're open. Barbie Doll says I need to talk to you.

***

Go see Matthew at Bucks. Real nice guy … but wicked.

***

A couple of people have asked me, "Who was the turkey on the cover of the Nightspots Thanksgiving issue?"

Go in Charlie's and ask Teri Yaki, although I've heard a rumor that she's eaten her turkey … on several occasions. Not sure if she stuffed him first …

***

Kirk says The Pour House's 30th Anniversary weekend was to die for. Saturday night offered up a breathtaking drag show starring none other than Tamara (my, she's getting around these days.) Everyone was there, including owner Ernie, who was in rare form. I'll have to get myself out there—and soon!
