With The Lair's Colton Ford and Windy City Times' Andrew Davis at Hydrate,
Playing Spoons at Scot's,
With former office manager Robb Olson at his 30th birthday party.
Talk about a mouthful ( but not with your mouth full ) ! That Colton Ford from Here TV's The Lair is more than a mouthful... even for a Mick Jagger-type. Look really close at this picture snapped at Hydrate and you can clearly make out his Bulge Area. Sounds like a wonderful place to live, that Bulge Area. I'm gonna call his package Sofia, being the capital of Bulge Area. Dead horse, meet stick.
Anyway, Colton was in town to promote the upcoming third season of The Lair. And how better than to insinuate himself into the Lube Wrestling proceedings! After much pleading, Colton did not agree to wrestle himself, but there was plenty of hot butt to go around.
I had planned to pop in to Scot's for a couple of minutes to get a few quick ones of their Oktoberfest. I shoulda known better. Shoulda but didnta. Next thing I know my knuckles were bruised in a rousing game of Spoons. Get a bunch of drunks, a drawer full of spoons and endless brats and sauerkraut together and tell me it's not a party! It's just lucky we were playing Spoons instead of Knives.
I can't take credit for that last joke. Pretty much everyone at the table tried to crack that one at some point. Kind of a gimme...
It always strikes me as odd when amazingly fabulous individuals fall under the spell of self-consciousness. When I went to take the picture of a certain über-stylish lad at Cocktail, he asked if I would make some wisecrack about his outfit. Just the opposite, darling. See his picture on page 8. You will agree that he has a funky thing going on. When you see him, tell him. Hug him. But don't co-opt his style. That's his thang.
Happy 30th birthday to our former office manager Robb Olson! Now that we don't necessarily have an office, the need for an office manager kind of faded away. It was a pleasure to see him at his b-day party. Sounds like life post-WCMG is doing him quite well.
Any regular readers of this column know that I am sucker for good puppet theater. Throw in campy '70s throwbacks and I'm hooked. Glory hallelujah for Scooty & JoJo's Carpenters Halloween at Mary's Attic! It's an evening of quality entertainment that won't make you want to throw up afterwards.
