A Toast To Vlad!

Question?:

Why do people ruin chicken salad by putting raisins in it!?!?!???

Weekend Update:

Was it just me, or was everyone in the world out and about this weekend? I saw lines coming out of various Boystown venues. I love to see the economy of Boystown booming in the midst of our lousy national economy!

I hope that you had a nice weekend! Mine was sprinkled with a bit of work here and there, but fun nonetheless. I was blessed once again to have some fellowship with the Socialite, Hunter B. Lyon. (See Picture) I swear to you, we are brothers separated at birth (And a few years)

It was especially nice to have a bit of koinonia (The Greek word that means communion by intimate participation) with Paul Rosie! Aside from his damn good looks, this guy has a lot to say and clearly a lot of experiences to share! Seriously, don’t you just love people like that!

Fellowship of Friendship:

I was a lucky fella to be able to hangout with my besti, Isaiah a few times. As busy as that boy is with school and his work with Chicago Social Magazine, I relish every moment that we get to spend with each other.

Happy Birthday:

Birthday wishes today go to Gal-pal, Jake Conrad. (See Picture Above) Welcome to the world of legality!

TGIF Bitches!

Amy & Freddy:
Last night I was joined by Boystown’s favorite, Johnny Reilly at the Amy and Freddy show at Lakeshore Theater. Yeeehaw, it was a damn fun time! This month they had a “country” theme. The audience was even privy to two (That’s 2!) solo performances by Freddy. Don’t you think he is just the sweetest! (Sigh)

Scarlet Letter:
After the big show, we headed over to Scarlet to grab a tasty libation. SWEET LORD it was “Frat Night”! Have you been there on a Thursday? Scarlet’s Mike Kosko has made a campus of his own with drinking games, (Hello Flip-cup!) guitar hero, and some seriously cute bartenders. I was blessed to be served by the super cute William French. Don’t you just LOVE his name!?

Shorn Pizza:
I stoped by everyone’s favorite Pie Hole Pizza on the way home. I wanted to see who was participating in Poetic Hole; their weekly open microphone night. Seriously, I am SO impressed with the expression that goes on there! I was even convinced to get up and give an off the cuff poem about grooming. I have to say I was happy with it. (Was anyone within earshot to hear it?)

SHOUT OUTS: Advisor Edward and Dr. Drew, (Whom I saw on my way to the Lakeshore Theater) My friend, Bill Healy, My besti, Isaiah (Who I missed by just seconds), Boystown’s Paris Hilton, Evan Or, Birthday guy, Dexter, and of course, my dear old bitch Buffy (See Picture Above)

Cheers to the weekend!

Sure, you may be sick of hearing me always praise my bestfriend Isaiah, (See Picture) but this is my BLOG and I can pretty much say whatever I feel. (Grin) I hope you will all check out Isaiah’s write up about Good vs. Evil on Glossed & Found online magazine. He truly IS the “Go To Guy”!

BUSY BILLY

And The Winner Is:
Pictures will be coming soon from Instinct Magazine and UnderGear’s "Model Star" Casting Call at Hydrate on Friday. Produced by my friend Marcus Reynaga and his team, Boystown gave one serious addition to the National search in Alex. (See Picture by the fabulous Alice Llaban Encababian) I’ll tell you what; I am one lucky man to have been asked to host! There were some seriously HOT entries!

The Difference Made:
Saturday I joined GoPride.com’s Enterprise Brand Manager Mike Livingston at TPAN's annual Aware Affair. What a fabulous event, coordinated by TPAN’s Special Events Manager Rhett Lindsay. The sumptuous comfort food alone, made the event for me.

Of course the entertainment was off the hook! (You’re the best Rhett!) They had some of the hottest guys dressed (See Picture Above) in heroic regalia walking around! In addition there was a train of caped girls roller skating around the venue. It was a lot of fun.

Having Mike around is like strolling with Karen Walker. He’s a kindred spirit! Also in attendance was Jim Gregory (He was one of the aforementioned guys dressed as a super hero) and Jason Lee; both of whom worked at ChicagoPride.com’s Market Days booth this year. I was also able to fellowship with ChicagoPride.com’s Editor at Large, Jason P. Freeman and his date.

Aware Affair Award:
One of the reasons that I attended the TPAN event was to accept an award on behalf of ChicagoPride.com. (See Picture) Representing ChicagoPride.com’s President, Matthew Inawat and Senior Executive Vice President, Steve Long in accepting this award was an honor. In addition to the countless people that make ChicagoPride.com function; the three of us truly were blessed to be recognized for what we consider a labor of love!

Foozie Function:
It’s always a pleasure to be a part of anything Miss Foozie does! She hosted her Fabulous Varity Show at Circuit Nightclub. The night was dedicated to here gal-pal Paula SinClaire; with performances by Velicity Metropolis, Thersa Dawn, Lila Star and Kaycee Ortiz. To top it off Boystown favorite, Pie Hole Pizza provided some tasty pizza’s courtesy of owner, DJ Doug Brandt. I can’t remember a better show! The next one will be October 11th.

Where is Vlad!:
Heading to Minibar to meet up with my besti, Isaiah I had a leisurely stroll with Mike through rainy Boystown. Walking in to the sounds of DJ Phil DaBeatz I was greeted by a whole host of people; including Clay Hinkle, Andy Kaim and Philip Trampe. (Missing was Mike Rippe)

I found Isaiah and caught up with him on the happenings of his evening. (Sidebar: It has to be said that I really enjoy being Isaiah’s friend! He is one of the most normal, well adjusted, and thoughtful people I know! Knowing him as long as I have and in various roles; he has assumed a role that I am honored to have him fill; that of family!)

It was so nice to connect with Socialite, Hunter B. Lyon! (See Picture) I thought he was to be out of town, so I was pleasantly surprised. With Hunter B. was the super cute, Paul Rosenkranz. (See Picture) Paul is one interesting guy. I am enjoying getting to know him! Joining us a bit later was Austin Hoover (See Picture) and my gal-pal, Jake Conrad. (See Picture) Boystown twins, Ryan Andrew and Kevin Anthony came in with their cameras at the ready and their posse nearby. Of course we were all blessed at the arrival of everyone’s favorite, VICTORY. He has SO much energy!

I was equally blessed to run into my friends Ben Hartman, and Holley Mouser. Scarlet’s favorite son, Mike Kosko even stopped by to say hello too! (Side note: Check out Mike on page 31 of the latest Time Out Chicago!) It was a special treat to run in to JP Quirk and Erin Cauley as well!

Fellowshipping until the wee hours; with a stop at Hydrate, I was ready to get home. The only thing that was missed over the evening’s festivities was hanging out with the sweet Vlad!

Sunday None Day:
I enjoyed a quiet rainy day doing nothing at all. It was just my bitch Buffy and me with a weekend recap phone call with Isaiah. I really enjoyed this down time and I got some GREAT rest!

VOTE:
Be sure to vote for Boystown’s own Tommy Andrika for Metromix’s 2008 Bartender of the year!

Tommy (See Picture) has worked several different jobs at Minibar|Winebar before settling behind the bar about a year ago. You can see Tommy every Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings; Saturday and Sunday afternoons too. Vote for Tommy here!

(Side note: If you've not Registered to vote in the next Presidential election, what are you waiting for? Do it NOW!)

SHOUT OUTS: Greg, My bosom friend, David Cruse Beal, my ex, Jesse Rubly, Former roommate, Mike Rippe, Advisor Edward, My good friends, Bill Healy, Alex Choren, Matt F., and Jason Maldonado, My dear friend Ronnie Kroell and my dear old skinny bitch Buffy

Have a GREAT week!

Say Cheese!

A Date With Miss Foozie:
For years, I’ve been singing the praises of my Friend, Miss Foozie. She never ceases to amaze me. Wonderfully she agreed to be my date (See Picture) to the AIDS Legal Council of Chicago benefit Tropicalia! among others, ChicagoPride.com sponsored the well attended event at Sidetrack. I was so pleased that the hard work of ALCC’s Director of Development, Ricardo Cifuentes paid off so well. This Make A Difference group really impacts a lot of lives!

I was overjoyed to run into the Feast of Fools boys, Marc Felion and Fausto Fernós. I see why they are so popular! We had a lot of fun chit-chatting. That Fausto seems to be one kindred spirit. (See Picture) If you’ve not heard their pod cast, be sure and check out one of their recent ones with ChicagoPride.com’s own Jay Shaff.

I also ran into my long time gal-pal (I have a few) Ryan Yoder. (See Picture Above) Anyone who knows Ryan can testify just how vibrant and alive this chap is. He’s funny, witty, articulate and well. . .as you can see, cute! I am so proud of Ryan and equally as proud to call him my friend.

Tee Many Martoonies:
I don’t know what it is about people buying me a drink. They don’t do it when I really need it; rather they do it when I don’t. (Ha Ha Ha!) Heading home to my beckoning Bitch and bed, I was intercepted by my dear friend Advisor Edward. I should have taken the cry-way. (def: The back alleys where one goes to cry; or run home two go #2. A place to avoid the general public on the way to and from home) Edward was with Dr. Drew and Piano Man, Ben Hartman at Cocktail. I can hardly resist when they ask for fellowship. Clearly I was WAY over my limit on the adult beverage, but I pressed on. Somehow, I made it home to enjoy a good nights rest; in my suit. (Laughs Out Loud)

Visit Seattle:
Thursday night I was delighted to fellowship with my dear friend Rusty Martin (The Conquer) from Seattle. I’ve known Rusty for a long time and have seen him grow into quite a marvelous man. Rusty is traveling with his co-worker and pal Greg Scheaffer. (See Picture) Greg won this “Gaycation” and is bent on meeting every cute boy in Boystown that he can. (Wink) I think it helped his cause to enjoy a few libations at Minibar|Winebar!

Joining us was Instinct Magazine’s, Marcus Reynaga and his equally hot boyfriend (Who freelances for Instinct Magazine) Mark-Austin Rowell. (See Picture) With our event going on tonight, we wanted to meet up and enjoy some fellowship the night before. These California boys sure know how to enjoy themselves! I’ve found some new friends!

With stops at Cocktail and Hydrate, before heading home; I was glad to get back to my humble flat and my sleepy Bitch.

TONIGHT:
Tonight is your chance to be a famous model, as Instinct Magazine and UnderGear sponsor the "Model Star" Casting Call at Hydrate. One lucky Chicago guy will win the chance to go to New York to compete in the model search and possibly win the grand package of appearing on the cover of the Spring 2009 UnderGear catalog and also appear on an upcoming cover and fashion spread in Instinct Magazine. Whether you audition or observe, this will be one HOT event!

Don’t Forget:
Miss Foozie’s Fabulous Varity Show taking place Saturday at Circuit Nightclub! Make plans to come out for the fun! Be sure to get on the VIP List for complimentary admission.
 Miss Foozie's FABULOUS Variety Show!
