Welcome to my burnout. I know I've said it all before, and it's getting pretty tired, but I need a vacation. Luckily, a certain bar personality, who shall remain nameless for now, has agreed to let me use his 3 bedroom Michigan house for a little getaway in a few weeks. And to him I am forever indebted. Meanwhile, I have mustered the strength to get my ass out to a bar or two. Couldn't have done it without the help of my faithful co-photogs graysong, Peter, Darcy, Kizzy and Mel. Without you I'm nothing.
So the big to-do this week is The Royal Imperial Sovereign Barony (soon to be Empire) of the Windy City's annual coronation at the Cubby Bear on Sunday. Yes, you heard me correctly, Cubby Bear. They assure that all security will be provided. Come see the troupes from every city nationwide converge on Chicago for this momentous event. You will see the outgoing Baron and Baroness on the cover this week, being beamed up in to Barony history.
I was taking a break in between Creaoke songs at Jackhammer and noticed this dude's ass. OK, no big surprise, I know. But it wasn't the ass itself (fine ass, though) that caught my eye, but what was sticking out of the ass pocket. The gloss, the glitz, the Vox logo: it was my column. He had been sitting square on my face all night. I thought I felt a slight sensation in my cheeks.
Hydrate is a lot of fun when you stop in randomly at 2:30 a.m. on a Tuesday. Look for JayJay and Ms. Ambrosia Salad making nice-nice with an animal cracker in the center spread. Stop in for their Bachelor Auction this Saturday to raise funds for Chicago House. Do a good deed and buy a good man!
Have you been to Charmers yet? If not, shame on your lame ass!
Listen up, chirrens! Sound-Bar plays host to the most gloriously inappropriate queen you or I have ever seen: Shirley Q. Liquor. If you have so much a PC corpuscle in your body, Shirley will set you straight. Stop in Sunday to see how she durrin.
Let me just talk now. This past weekend I went out to visit my family in the burbs and found out my grandmother was in the hospital. Today is actually her 84th birthday. She's had some health problems, including her quadruple bypass three years ago, and had to be whisked off.
This woman is amazing. She taught me strength, courage, responsibility, faith, reliance, how to use tools and one hell of a spaghetti sauce. Please, if you're a praying person, pray for her health and well-being. If not, keep her in your thoughts. I would consider it a personal favor!
