Here's a story... of the biggest Pride month Chicago has seen in forever! And, as a typical member of the TV generation ( I still give my TV a card on Mother's Day every year ) , we will have TV-themed covers every week in June. Oh, what fun! And to kick it off, it's the GayCo kids once again, doing a Brady Bunch thing with the Mona Lisa as Alice. Why? Check out 'The Davinci GayCode' at The Theatre Building through July 8 ( www.gayco.com ) .
And in such a bizarre twist of fate, last week an actual Brady breezed through town and stopped in to Hydrate to see Taj and the girls' Hy-drag Revue. Check out page 16 for a snapshot of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Brady!
Now into the future. We've got some big thangs coming up. Celebrate Spin's 11th anniversary all weekend, with the big party on Tuesday.
The Windy City Gay Idol finals are almost here. Once more, see the drama unfold Friday, June 16 at Circuit. I hear vicious rumors of a few ultra-special guests. You'll have to show up to see.
Get your Swede on this weekend with A-ville's Midsommarfest. While there, make sure to cheer on Nightspots' own wienerdog mascots Topo and Bowie in the doggie costume contest. They're a lock with their get-up this year. And when you get too hot, pop in to @mosphere, Star Gaze, Madrigal's or any other A-ville watering hole.
Mix with the Chix at Chix Mix's new party Shelter at the Victor Hotel. See the ad for more details.
High tail it up to Milwaukee for their Pridefest goodness. Margaret Cho, Berlin, Bow Wow Wow. OK, not so much Bow Wow Wow, but it's well worth the drive!
