Thursday night was the monthly Men’s Night out in its new location at Dapur. Men’s Night out is a neighborhood social event with the next gathering on Thursday, February 2. Friday some of us went down to Eros Lounge for their new Friday night promotion “Born To Be A Drag” at 10 pm. The night is hosted by Tiffany Fantasia and featured performances by her and Latrice Royale, who you can catch as one of the contestants on this year’s RuPaul’s Drag race. Eros was very busy and it was good to see this new lounge doing so well.
Saturday night we started the night at Sidelines Sports Bar just to hang out with friends and play a little pool and have some relaxing fun with all the friendly Sidelines bartenders and staff.
Later on, we went to Ramrod who held their monthly ‘Pig Dance’ party. The night was filled with attractive men in leather, and the sounds of sexy DJ Ted Eiel filled the air. It was a great night to dance and sweat off some of those extra calories gained during the holidays. Sunday night a few of us went over to Lips for dinner. The show was hosted by the beautiful Diva, who always is a great MC. In character she did Marilyn Monroe and Liza. Also performing was Champagne Bordeaux, Jennifer Grant and many others that entertained us all night long.

They’re back, darlings. BBC Worldwide Sales and Distribution, is bringing back the comedy phenomenon Absolutely Fabulous for three brand new specials, with BBC AMERICA and Logo serving as joint American co-producers for the series. Comedy sensations Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley will reprise their celebrated roles as Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone. The duo last teamed up for the BBC AMERICA comedy, Clatterford in 2006. Twenty years ago the world was introduced to Edina, Patsy and Saffron. It has never been quite the same. Eddy PR’d things. She was into every new fad and fashion imaginable and was often to be found at the bottom of a Champagne glass, actually more likely a bottle.
Not much has changed. Her best friend Patsy worked in magazines and lived the high life. She still does. Eddy’s daughter Saffy was hard-working, all but ignored by her mother and hated by Patsy. Eddy’s mother was and is, well, her mother. They are all back for three new shows, 20 years after they first fell on to television. Jennifer Saunders said, “We are thrilled to be able to celebrate our 20th birthday with all of the original cast. We hope that, like a good bottle of champagne we have grown better with age but lost none of our sparkle. Viewers in the US have been very kind to the show over the years and we are very happy to return on not one but two US channels at once, BBC AMERICA and Logo. We fully intend to party like it’s 1991. When we started filming in West London, it was like time had stood still. It was raining. Nevertheless we are so happy to be working for an audience that has grown just a tiny bit older, like us, but is still willing to let us fall over on TV in the name of PR.” Check BBC America and Logo for times as the first episode first aired on Sunday January 8th, but will be replayed.
