Coffee wit Frasier’s Dad

The Best:
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!

SHOUT OUTS:
The world’s greatest best friend, my Isaiah; Travis Ahlquist (YAY He comes home this week!; Gordon & Mike Kosko; Advisor Edward and Dr. Drew; dJR; Gregory Rein; My bosom friend, David Cruse Beal; my ex’s, Matthew Barrett & Jesse Rubly; Former roommate, Clyde, My good friends, Michael Elm, Jeffery Vander Mead and Arthur Chaney; Boystown crush, Kirk McNamara; My dear pals Jon Chadwick and Ronnie; the hot, Adrian McGuire, Ryan Mulcahy and Calvin; and my dear old bitch Buffy!

Happy SUNNYDay!

The Bud Boyz!

. . .And The Winners Are:
Budweiser, in conjunction with Media Consultants and ChicagoPride.com, presented the Bud Boyz Finalz at Sidetrack.

The four winners, Mikey, Zach, Nate and Christopher, (See Picture Above) were selected from 12 semi-finalists. There were two alternates picked as well; receiving a $500 contract from Budweiser.

Each of the boyz will receive an all-inclusive trip for two (Hey Christopher, I’m available to go with you! *wink*) to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, compliments of Apple Vacations plus $250 spending money. In addition, they will receive a guarantee of $1,500 in future appearances, a photo shoot, free haircuts for a year from the Menz Room and custom Bud Boyz attire.

Yours truly was LUCKY enough to be a judge. I have to say, it was one hard choice as all of the semi-finalists were hot. A personal honorable mention needs to go to Victor who’s flexible dancing ability won him the praise of many. (See Picture)

Lucky ChicagoPride.com members were treated to a free Bud Light; making the hot event even more fun! Some lucky audience members won a trip for two to Puerto Vallarta; A custom Bud Light TREK mountain bike; Cubs Tickets, Concert Tickets; and Bud Light tee shirts!

A special thank you goes to Gehrig and his team from Media Consultants, Olin, Kyle, and Eric! They really made the Bud Boyz events a lot of fun. You can be sure that you’ll see more from Budweiser in the LGBT community in the near future! Budweiser is truly the “Queen of Beers”!

Cheers Queers!
