Whereas you may never be able to plummet yourself into a coke-induced haze with Liza Minnelli and Truman Capote cracking wise, @mosphere gives you the next best thing ( sans coke, Liza and Tru ) . Of course, I refer to Midtangent Productions' Holiday 54 this Saturday night. Miss Titania Divine does the holidays up Studio 54 style, with a heaping helping of hunkiness from our cover boy Anthony 54. A Halston dress is not required, but it sure would make a splash, no?

Good to see Miss Stephen Rader at Hydrate for the Disco Ball to benefit Season of Concern. Diligent little paparazzi that we are, both CFP's Dave and I got there too late for the show, but we caught plenty of spectacle afterwards. Stephen is pushing for a resurgence of that classic ol' Nightspots nugget Crotch or Bea Arthur. It may need a new twist. Be on the lookout for your next installment of Armpit of Rue McClanahan coming soon to a bar rag near you.
Also be on the lookout this Friday for Hydrate's Red Ball, to benefit Chicago House. So many balls...
After forgetting to do up an ad for Randy's birthday at Jackhammer, I was damn sure gonna show up to the party and get some blackmail-worthy shots of the bitch. Lo and behold, once the camera came out, he was nowhere to be found. Let's do the math: if he had to blow one guy in the bar for every year of his life, at five minutes a blowjob, that adds up to six hours and 35 minutes... and one tired set of choppers. Alright, Randy, you're forgiven ( this time ) .
It's as if I were struck in the head by an errant bird ( Fabio-style ) at Cocktail because I was seein' stars. First of which was my old friend Ryan, who is now back on Fridays and Saturdays. And then, a certain young Ricky from this season's Project Runway strolled in. Ryan and I totally perioded our pants. We believe in you, Ricky! And you to Steven, if you're reading.
So The Edge is on the verge. Of a new name, that is. Word is that they are finalizing all their stuff and the new incarnation will kick off New Year's Eve. May I propose the name '17,' only because as I walked in, a queen was on stage doing Stevie Nicks' 'Edge of Seventeen' and the nerd in me could not help but love the coincidence.
Stella's still got it. What, I'm not sure, but she's still got it alright. See what I mean as he hosts the Miss Continental Elite and Plus prelims at The Baton this Monday night.
And finally, a sober hello to Miss Fantazee Bordeaux, our favorite local crack enthusiast. We'll be hearing a lot more out of her soon...
