It is with great joy that neighborhood favorite, Scarlet reopens tonight!
Many in the community will come together to welcome back this old friend with a new twist. Four feet larger in the front, and extending all the way to the sidewalk; there is a featured seating area in the front, called “Table One”. There is a large glass window to the outside; a den area making the new Scarlet a larger, more functional bar.
Join me tonight for the fun!
This just in, yours truly will be on the Feast of Fun podcast this week.
Yep, my night has just been made by the invite from hilarious Fausto Fernós and witty Marc Felion to come to their studios Tuesday night for taping.
Like many of you, I am one big fan of the daily Feast of Fun podcast! Their topics and rhetoric make me “that guy” on the bus who’s laughing to himself.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to participate in the Pie Toss benefiting Equality Illinois.
Chicago’ s Sidetrack was full of would-be pie throwers all vying for the chance to huck a pie at their favorite or least favorite community leader. Yours truly was subject to said pie. (See Photo Above) A special thank you to my pal, Advisor Edward for shelling out some serious dough to this worthy cause. (Both EQ IL and seeing me covered in pie)
Photos of the fun can be seen HERE
Have you ever had chocolate cream pie in your eye? It burns
With as much hate mail as I get in a week here is a chance for all you haters to get me back and do some good at the same time!
This Saturday from 2-5PM you have the chance to make me look like crap as Sidetrack and Equality Illinois present the Pie Toss
Here’s the opportunity to throw an actual pie in my “smug”, “self-aggrandizing”, “ChicagoPride.com pushing”, “self-appointed”, “twink liking”, “arrogant”, “name dropping”, “Facebook living”, “il-fitted suit wearing”, “free loading”, “self-promoting”, “child chasing”, “drag queen favoring”, “Mayor of Boystown” face!
Come on . . . I dare ya haters!
PS: I'm now "Orange" according to one damn funny blog!
So here it is, a very sunny Sunday morning and I’m enjoying coffee and a rare pastry edible from the Caribou Coffee around the corner from my place. I’ve got Billie Holiday on my I-pod; making me think of my Mom and Dad (Note: John Mahoney, NBC’s Frasier’s Dad, just sat down next to me. I think he lives in the area. Perhaps my Father was right; I need to marry a rich older gentleman! He’s cute!)
Last night I took a page from my Besti’s book and enjoyed a Saturday night in; much to the chagrin of my pal’s Bill Healy, Jim Gregory and the cute couple Paul & Mike who invited me out and about. I’ve found lately that I really enjoy a Friday or Saturday night in. I make a nice meal, pour myself a glass (Or two) of red, and enjoy a dvd my bitch Buffy! (Yep! She’s still with us!)
Life is a Cabaret:
Be sure and stop by Martini Park Monday evening from 5-9PM for after work cocktails featuring the incredible song sounds of Paul Marinaro and drinks served to you by uber-hottie, Jake Conrad! A portion of the proceeds will benefit Chicago House
There are of course a number of other fun activities going on in Gay Chicago!
