Trust Me. . . It's Long!

I’m going to warn you. . . this will be a long blog, but well worth the read!

Poppa Can You Hear Me:
What a thrill it always is; to have my Father (See Picture Above) visit! There’s never a dull moment. With a late arrival because of Chicago’s windy weather on Wednesday, he arrived just in time for us to dine at Joe’s Stone Crab on Grand & Rush. Joining us was my best friend Isaiah. My two favorite fellows in one place; it was the best. The only thing missing was my Mom. She would have enjoyed every minute but the travel itself. With Scott as our server we were in high heaven with stone crab and sweets! He made us feel like we were royalty. Placing my father in a cab to head back to the Westin River North Isaiah and I made the trek back to Boystown. As busy as he and I are these days, I really appreciate the times we have with one another. He is a gem!

Yo:
Having a delightful time of cocktails with my Father in the lobby bar of the Westin Thursday evening, (Note: Clearly the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!) and enjoying a call from my brother David in China I headed up North to see my friends Amy & Freddy perform at the Lakeshore Theater. I had about forty-five minutes to kill before the show started so I headed over to nearby Wilde to see my gal pal and Wilde Bartender Ryan Yoder. (See Picture) It had been (Pronounced: bean) way too long since I’ve seen Ryan!

Ryan was all dressed to impress the gays in his painted on jeans and perfect smile. Look, I’ve known the boy for a while and I love him only as a friend, but DAMN! He be lookin gooooood. (Sidenote: You should see his brother; (See Picture) New York “front model”, Billy! He too is fine and part of the “family” if you know what I mean!). It turns out that Ryan was all dressed pretty because of a private party being held at Wilde for the LGBT academic Martini Group. (Thats my name for it.) A group of boys (And some girls) from various universities that gather to fellowship over great conversation and libation. I think that Ryan was hoping for more of an Abercrombie Martini Group. (Laugh Out Loud). Having a few Maker’s Mark and Ginger Ales, I headed off to the theater.

Sing That Tune Funny Girl:
Joining me for the show at the Lakeshore Theater was Advisor Edward. We were so kindly ushered to the front row in great style by the management of Lakeshore Theater and given libations to wet our whistles. The crowd was wonderful and ready for a fun evening of song and snickers. I’ve known my friend Amy Armstrong for a lot of years now. She is always so full of energy and zeal. I honestly have never seen her look better! Not only is she sporting a great look, but her talent is even more alive. (If that were possible) I’ve always said, as talented as she is in music; she is just as equally talented in being funny. She kills me every time! That Freddy Allen did it again in putting together a perfect show! I just adore that guy! (Don’t worry Lance!)

Running into my dear friends Bill Healy and Russell Daugherty at the show, Advisor Edward and I join them after the show and headed over to enjoy an slice of pizza from my favorite pizza joint Pie Hole Pizza. Owner/Friend DJ Doug Brandt was on hand to provide fellowship and his usual comedic blessing. I’ll tell you, he’s one good egg! Afterwards the boys headed to Sidetrack and Advisor Edward and I headed North on Halsted. He to Little Jim’s and I to the home and my fury dog. On our way, we ran into boystown social-boy, Ryan Andrew sans boyfriend Zach. It had been a while since I’ve seen Mister A. Denying the powers of Edwards pleas to join him for a “Nightcap” (Pronounced: in a stiff English accent) at Little Jim’s I made it home to my bitch.

Thank God:
Having my Father in town is great! I love ending my work day with him the lobby bar. We always seem to have so much to talk about! I think he’s gotten it through his head that I’m going to stay in Chicago. (Note: That is of course I don’t get a call from Bill Gates himself to offer me a job; something my Father could probably arrange) Ushering him to a taxi to wisk him off to his dinner with friends, I headed back North to have a relaxed evening. Rarely do I get a quite Friday night. Of course I did stop by my favorite watering hole, Minibar|Winebar for a glass of wine.

I was greeted as I walked in by Thursday/Saturday resident DJ Phil DaBeatz and his clan of pals; the very cute Adam Hickenbottom and the ginger haired Jessica. Jessica was a bit pissed to be sure because I didn’t remember her name. Honestly my friends, I am NOT good at that. I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t remember things that well. Even my little blog here is conceived via a small pile of reminder notes that I write every night before retiring to bed. Nonetheless, it was great to fellowship with Phil, Adam, and Jessica and I hope that I will be able to remember her name in the future!

On the Winebar side I was greeted by none other than interior designer, Kiel Wuellner. Surly I am the lucky guy on a number of occasions to be spoken to by beautiful guys, but this one is truly impressive! I think Kiel is the first person to greet me by saying, “How’s Buffy?”. (My bitch) Well, we got talking about a billion things and I lost track of the time. Saying good evening to Kiel and his “new hot friend” Matthew he met earlier in the day, I headed home to said bitch.

Party Day:
Sadly Isaiah and I weren’t able to do our Saturday morning breakfast again this week as he was cleaning up after a photo shoot from the day before with Modern Luxury Magazine and wedding shopping with friends Sandra Riedel, her charming Mother Kristy, and sweet aunt Heidi. Recall that Sandra is getting married to the very handsome Ryan Vanderbilt and Isaiah is organizing the wedding.

The Eighth & Ninth Wonders of the World:
I’ve not been (Pronounced: bean) to the Great Pyramid of Giza or seen the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus; the Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus or the other four wonders of the world, but I think that I’ve seen/experienced the latest two to be added to the list. I went grocery shopping with Advisor Edward (Eighth Wonder) at the gayberhood Treasure Island for Saturday evening’s dinner party in honor of my Father. I think one could write a book on this experience alone. From his making fun of “trixie’s” (Girls who are annoying and talk in a high pitched squeal) to the squeezing of the expensive produce, it was pure comedy!

As if that weren’t enough, I then got in a car with this man (Ninth Wonder) to head back to his flat on Roscoe and Lakeshore. Making preparations for the festivities later that evening the dining room table was over the top!

Drunk & Drunker:
With prompt precision the party in honor of my sainted Father began with his arrival to Advisor Edward’s home at 7:00PM. Right from the get-go, this sharp dressed man was regaling Edward, Chicago Piano Man, Ben Hartman and me with stories and wisdom. With drinks and “Bits” to eat in the study we were greeted by arriving guests one by one. Joining the fun was Isaiah and his mentor and DePaul Professor, Jim Halsted. I so enjoy this man! He is like a child in the library of life; always inquisitive and hungry for peoples thoughts. Next we welcomed my friends Bill Healy and Russell Daugherty; both dressed in tie’s nonetheless!

Needless to say, the sumptuous dinner of “dead cow” (as Advisor Edward put it.) and vegetables was interwoven by incredible stories, tasty libations, and toasts! We went from wine, to port, to cognac in the span of a few hours and were even blessed to hear Ben play us a tune or two on the baby grand piano. Saying goodbye to my father, I put him in a well timed van-cab at 1AM. (Note: He had to be up the next morning at 5:00 AM to leave for the airport!) I hate goodbyes! With thanks in my heart, I took my leave of Advisor Edward and the gang and headed home myself.

Sunday, A Day of Rest:
I enjoyed a rather relaxing day of movies and fellowship with the bitch on Sunday. In the early evening I was so happy to meet up John M. at his place downtown. Johnny has been gone to his family home in Michigan for the last week. It is true when they say that “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”! I really missed him! We had a delightful time of catching up, enjoying a meal and talking philosophy. He even introduced me to the show Desperate Housewives. (I’d never seen it.) Saying good night to my missed friend, I headed back up to Boystown.

Better Than Clark Kent:
Stopping by to greet folks at Minibar’s Sunday FUN Day Beach Party I was surprised to find a unique reaction by everyone there. As promised, I was in shorts and a polo shirt; not my usual suit and tie regalia. The only one to recognize me was cute door guy, Kyle. I had to introduce myself to friends who reacted with such surprise and amazement at my lack of clothes. It was comedy. Greeting DJ Chris Eterno, and party boys Ross Vigil, Steve Stewart and Johnny Reilly I headed home to enjoy another movie with my bitch.

This Week:

Sponsored by ChicagoPride.com, Dining Out For Life raises funds for AIDSCare by dining at many of your favorite local restaurants. I myself will be dining at Home Bistro.

Better Late Then Never!

Please forgive the delay in getting this blog out! Although I had THE best time last weekend there have been some busy days since then. I’m proud to announce that ChicagoPride.com’s parent company, GoPride.com, has launched our new sister site, PrideDC.com. With the upcoming Cherry Weekend taking place in Washington DC, PrideDC.com is taking its first steps as a proud sponsor. I hope you will take a look at the new site and tell all your friends in Washington DC about it!

The Days of Yore:
After 15 (Or so) years of not seeing one another my long lost college pal Andy Hatton came to Boystown for a visit on Friday evening. It was SO nice to catch up with Andy over dinner at Angelina’s with Johnny M. joining us! John was on his way out of town to fellowship with his family in Michigan, so I wanted to be sure and have some fellowship with him before he left! “I hate goodbyes!” (See: Dumb & Dumber)

From Angelina’s we stepped over to Cornelia’s for a glass (Or three) of wine with Advisor Edward. It never fails, we always strike up the greatest conversations when we’re together! Saying goodbye to John, we all headed towards Sidetrack. My word it was like a big reunion there! I ran into the always sweet Mikey (Name withheld to protect his closet status) and his very cute friend Rob. Piano man Ben Hartman joined us as well. I also had the pleasure of running into my dear friend Scott Parachek! (Clydee you were missed) It was a double pleasure to run into kindred spirit, Matt Richards. (See Picture) Ya know, he is such a pleasure to be around. He always has a smile and a witty thing to say! (More to come about Matt.) Enjoying a lovely evening at the Tracks, Advisor Edward headed off to Little Jim’s; Andy headed back to his hotel and I made the trek home to my Bitch.

Don’t Leave Before You Go!:
Saturday evening began with a light snowfall on my way over to my friend Bill Healy’s home. Bill hosted a number of us including the talented Freddy Allen to dinner in honor of his friends Ed and Chuck from Palm Springs (Smoke Tree) whom he met on his last tropical cruise. I can’t tell you what a delight it was to get to know these chaps! They were full of life and great stories! Ed and I especially bonded as he is from my hometown of Seattle and we know all the same people! Sadly my night had other plans so I said farewell at 10 to my new friends and walked briskly in the cold flurries to Halsted.

On my way home to pick up the present I got for Miss Foozie’s birthday party, I stopped by to say hello to my pal DJ Phil DaBeatz at Minibar|Winebar. With a hug and a kiss I was back on the trail towards home.

Happy Birthday To Foo…:
Everyone knows that I am a big fan of my pal Miss Foozie! Foo and I have known each other for years. John, the man behind Foozie is like family to me; as we have worked together on occasion over the years. Miss Foozie is one loved person in the community and I have the great honor of calling her my friend. The gang at Circuit spared no expense in throwing Foozie one hell of a birthday party! With an all-star cast that included my friends, Paula Sinclair, Cyon Flare, Lady Vera Parker, Tina Torch, Sebastian Cock and more; Foozie was on cloud nine in love! She even did a few “quickie’s” for the 300+ people in attendance! My two favorites were Foozie and a banana. (It was kind of hot) and her finale where in she took off her wig and announced to everyone that she was “Just a man!”. It was one of the best show’s I’ve ever seen Foo do and there was a ton of free Pie Hole Pizza everywhere courtesy of community friend, Doug Brandt!

At Circuit I ran into my gal-pal Jake Conrad and the very cute Kale Ness. What a blessing that was! Jake can’t help but be cute when he dances! (Side Note: Where in the hell were these cute guys when I was young? I would have come out a billion years earlier!) Speaking of cute; your friend and mine, Trey Gonzales of Oprah’s Big Give! fame, was there as well with his friend Richard. Ya know, every time I hangout with Trey I am more impressed! (What was it you said about “Going for the eyes!” Trey?) Plus, he seriously is pretty damn cute! ChicagoPride.com’s Matthew, Brian, Jay, and cute CP Brand Manager, Mike were also there to ring in Foozie’s birthday. It was a real party!!

Don’t Leave Before You Go!:
I got a text from Ronnie telling me he was at Minibar so I headed down to see him. I swear, it is so great to have him home! We were catching up on all the festivities of the night and enjoying a few libations. I was able to introduce him to Trey and watch them get to know each other. (Note: I love when great minds come together to do great things!)

Like Circuit; there were a lot of friends at Minibar. Boystown Icon, Linda Little was holding court behind the bar. Community activist, Kevin Hauswirth greeted me with his usual handshake and hello. Minibar cutie, Kyle was hosting the door and DJ Phil DaBeatz continued playing the incredible music he does. I was delighted to have another Mikey (Name withheld to protect his closet status) sighting! He and I got talking about safe sex in the community and how many seem to not be following that practice. The guy is damn right!

Sister Trisha Was Here!:
Saying good night to everyone, I headed North to Hydrate to see my friend DJ Scotty Thomson spin. I’ve known Scotty for years as Sister Trisha Jones introduced us back in Seattle. (Note: I loved that you called me at three in the morning Sister!) Every time I hang with Scotty, I have THE best time. It’s hard to explain but when I like a DJ’s work, I like more than just the music I hear! I like to watch their process of song choice, how they use the music board, and the movement in their step. Like my friend DJ Rodney Becker, Scotty has an incredible focus and feel of the room. I was in heaven! I stood in the booth from 1:30 until 5:00 a.m.! (Note: I don’t make it a practice to stay out that late. *Grin*) Saying good morning to Scotty, I headed home to my sleepy bitch.

Saving The Best For Last:
As if I didn’t stay up all night, I was up at the dawn of crack (Note: That’s earlier than the crack of dawn) and headed to the gym. My workouts are such a joy as I’m feeling great results! At two I was the lucky guy to be able to fellowship with Matt Richards (See Picture) at Caribou Coffee. Honestly, Matt is so damn refreshing! Just when I think that I’m a bit on the crazy side; he reminds me that the mission I have in my life is important. (Note: Matt you have one FINE a_s!)

Around 7 I met up with Isaiah for dinner at Pie Hole Pizza. He’s been busy with various events and work with Chicago Social Magazine. Our normal Saturday morning breakfast had to be canceled as he was wedding shopping with his roommate Sandra Riedel and her wonderful Mother Kristy. Sandra is getting married to the very handsome Ryan Vanderbilt in August and Isaiah is organizing the wedding.

We had a great dinner and caught up on all our gossip. When it comes to having a best friend, he’s the best! All-in-all, it was a marvelous weekend and was the perfect way to start the week.

This Week:
If you’re looking for the ideal pre-weekend date idea, be sure to join me this Thursday evening for a great night of laughs and tunes with my pals Amy & Freddy! (See Picture Above) If you don't have a date, you can be mine!

This evening my sainted Father (See Picture) is coming to town for a visit. In addition to the usual mayhem that we will enjoy; Advisor Edward is throwing a private dinner in honor of my father this weekend. The small gathering will for sure be written about in my next blog. If you see us out and about over the weekend please come up and introduce yourself!!

Special Note:
Thank you goes to my friend John Dalton, co-owner of Minibar for his constant hospitality. Your knowledge of wines is AMAZING pal!

SHOUT OUT: Johnny M., Angelina’s server, Brett, My Singapore Envoy, David Cruse Beal , My pal Brent Corrigan, My buddy, Brian Douglass, My first best pal in Chicago, Jeremy Ehrhart, Former Roommate Clyde, The damn cute, Clay Hinkle, Celebrating his birthday last week, Stephen Gallagher, and finally my bitch Buffy

Happy Hump Day!!

A Model Day

The Perfect Sun Day:
With the weather outside being just perfect, (63 degrees) I was on cloud nine all Saturday! (Origin of phrase: It was believed that clouds existed on a successful level of layers, and the ultimate high layer was 9. So, anyone who is suddenly super happy was said to be soaring in the clouds and naturally the level of the cloud they were assumed to be on was the highest...level 9)

I’m sure the early start to my day, the breakfast with Isaiah and the many cups of coffee I had helped! Whilst at the counter of Caribou Coffee I felt a sizable cup of my bum and turned around to find my long lost pal Ronnie standing behind me. It was one of those Capra-esq moments (See: Frank Capra, Director: It's a Wonderful Life and Mr Smith Goes to Washington) when all time stood still. It was nice to catch up! We made plans to meet up later that evening for some fellowship with the boys of Boystown.

I also had the pleasure of running into Jason Steele of Red Eye fame. He’s such a nice guy. Clearly we both get our inspiration from being around people at the Gayberhood coffee shop. Watch out Perez!


Party Of The Year:
The generosity of John Dalton and Stu Zrin at Minibar|Winebar never ceases to impress me! Once again they spared no expense in providing table service for Ronnie and me. (See Picture Above) We were able to enjoy some fellowship and greet friends with comfort! I was a bit nervous for it all to go well. I knew that everyone wanted to see Ronnie, and he wanted to see them too. I just didn’t want him to have to work so hard. Damn can I be a dumba_s sometimes. Ronnie’s a lot like me; we just can’t leave a room alone! :-) As always, Minibar’s Dexter took such great care of us all night! He kept the Goose and fruit flowing and I kept Ronnie’s glass full. (Note: Special thank you to my Father who always encouraged me to “Get so-and-so another drink”)

Who’s Who:
Everyone was so happy to be reunited with our Boystown celebrity! It was fun to see Bill Healy there with his pal Russell. My family’s Barney’s advisor, Jeffery stopped by to say hello. What an impressive person! It was also a treat to see Obama LGBT Front man, Jamie Cirron. As busy as he is, any time with him is good time!

ChicagoPride.com photographer Jay was there to snap pics of all the snazzy dressed folks. My friend Matt Richards surprised the heck out of me by being out and about! He is one very likeable fellow! He’s also a kindred spirit! We’ve made plans to meet up later this week.

New Chicago socialite Brad Hammer was on hand with a very fetching hat! He’s spared no time in getting plugged in to the Chicago scene! The future Mayor of Boystown, Tommy Holl came by as well. Is it just me or does this boy know everyone!?!?! I swear, I will be out of an honorary job before long!

Joining Ronnie and me at the table was Ronnie’s pal (and now mine) Todd Hatoff! He’s a damn good egg and is a true friend for Ronnie. Also joining the table was my pal John M. and his cute friend Brian. Of course more folks sat with us throughout the evening; in between dance breaks and makeout sessions. (Comedy!)

I’m always happy to see my patient & pal John Reilly! He’s always got a smile on that cute photogenic face! Naturally, Ryan Andrew, Jim Bonfield and Chicago Male Salon hottie Kevin Anthony said hello!

Minibar staffer, Kyle (See Picture) was also on hand with boyfriend Danny. What a damn cute couple! Kyle is a very sweet guy and I have to say one of the cutest that I know! The music of the night was damn intense! DJ Phil DaBeatz was in excellent form to be sure! Jersey Boys music man Ben Hartman came by to catch up. Ben is one great guy and I always love seeing him!

Good Night Sweetheart:
Around 1:30, Ronnie looked a bit woofed so I offered to walk him to Todd’s place, where he was staying. I now know what it’s like when Isaiah gets me out of an event. Ronnie didn’t want to ignore the hellos but really wanted to get home. It’s hard to say no sometimes.

Our walk to Todd’s was just delightful! It was the first quiet time we had all night. Ha Ha! Clearly he’s happy to be home. At one point in the evening he said to me, “I love New York but I’m IN LOVE with Chicago”. What a nice boy!

I stopped back at Minibar to say thank you and then brought some of my pals to Hydrate where Tommy Holl had a drink with me! (Scratch that one off the list) As I climbed the steps to my flat I was greeted at the door by my hairy dog. THAT is always a pleasant surprise as she’s really damn old and looking ready to go to heaven these days. :-( All in all, a “Model” day!


SHOUT OUT:Gal-pal, Jake Conrad, My Singapore Envoy, David Cruse Beal , Hometown Crush, Dylan Glocker, My pal and movie star, Brent Corrigan, My buddy, Brian Douglass, Advisor Edward, CK, Saturday Birthday boy, Steven Farquhar, My first best pal in Chicago, Jeremy Ehrhart, Former Roommate Clyde, Military intelligent, Josh, Celebrating his birthday this Wednesday, Ryan Yoder, Bus Friend, Stephen Gallagher, and finally my bitch Buffy

Have a great week!

Sun Day

I’ve Missed Him:
Still feeling the spirit of the festivities at Winebar the other evening, I can’t wait to get my hands on Ronnie! I know he’s a big star now, but he was my pal before he was a star. I can’t tell you how funny that is to me! I liken it to my family’s relationship with the Gate’s family. Our two families have been friends for so long I can remember Bill before he became the richest man in the world. Just a regular guy, really!

Just before Ronnie left for New York, he and I had coffee together. I’ve thought about that time a lot over the last three months. He’s gone through so much since then. It’s made me think once again about the importance of saying what needs to be said, before it’s too late. I for one feel wonderful about everything that we said to each other. I am also VERY proud of my friend!

TGIF:
Once again I was the lucky guy to meet up with John M. for dinner at Angelina’s John is always great to hangout with! Hear Ye, Hear Ye, single boys, he’s available and might I say, well guarded by his pals. So please no psychos, stalkers, or weirdoes! We had a perfect dinner and were waited on by my pal and everyone else’s, Brett! I have to say hello to Bartender Danni! It was a delight to meet you! The nickname that Brett gave you was right on!!

From there we were off to Lakeview Broadcasting Co. to see my dear friend and celebrity bartender, Heather host an open bar. I have to say, if you haven’t been to LBC in a while, get back there! I’ve never had a bad time, the music is right on and owner Steven Westman is pretty hot!

Since Heather and I are going to be married (Side Note: See Will & Grace episode___) someday, she wanted to introduce me to her brother, Ross. Sweet lord was he a big boy! DAMN! It’s clear to see that this cute guy loves his sister! His wife to be, Mary (Side Note: Don’t you love it when a girl named Mary hangs out near Boystown!?) could not have been anymore sweet!

Trying to enjoy my box of wine (I know…) John and I had a great time chatting. (We always do!) Around 10:30, I started the trek home. John wanted me to meet his “FriendBrett who was coming to meet up with him at LBC. Date? Not-A-Date? Time will tell. Turns out that Brett is one of my MySpace pals. We’ve talked about meeting up for a long time. It has to be said, he’s damn cute!

Anthony Fagiano:
With a BEAUTIFUL Saturday in Boystown, (It’s gonna be 63 degrees!) I am eager to enjoy every minute of it! Of course a sunny day always makes folks ready for a randy night later. This evening I hope to run into former Chicago boy and ChicagoPride.com hottie, Anthony Fagiano. He surprised me the other night at Minibar|Winebar Fajjj is living his life up in LA as a promoter most assuredly under the gentle tutelage of Socialite Jonathan Chang.

Native Son:
Ronnie (See Picture Above) and I just met up at Caribou and he wants to come out and about tonight. SO, I will be hosting him tonight at Minibar. Join us!

SPECIAL SHOUT OUT: I want to take a moment to wish Michael my pal from back in the day working with NIKE a big hi and hello! You are too damn sweet and fabulous to read my BLOG! We should get you to come out to Chicago sometime! The girls, AND guys would be in love with you! ;-)

SHOUT OUT: Editor Steve who, like the lord always seems to be in my head. Gal-pal, Jake Conrad, My Singapore Envoy, David Cruse Beal , Chicago Piano Man Ben Hartman, My pal Amy Armstrong, My buddy, Brian Douglass, Advisor Edward, My first best pal in Chicago, Jeremy Ehrhart, The damn attractive, Clay Hinkle, Lakeview Broadcasting Co. beauty, Heather, Billy Yoder, London’s Big Al, and finally, my bitch Buffy

Happy Sun Day!!

Our Winner

And The Winner Is:
Enjoying the night at Winebar with John M. and Advisor Edward along with my pals Stu and John we enjoyed some great fellowship!

It was the occasion of the final episode of Make Me A Super Model starring my pal Ronnie Kroell. Sadly the award went to some girl, but truly the winner in the eyes of Boystown probably the country was Ronnie!

With a noticeable sigh in the air, we learned the news about Ronnie’s first place status as the last standing male from a cast of hotties from around the country. I would have liked to have seen him win, but anyone who knows Ronnie knows that he won before he even left Chicago!

It was a joy to be able to talk with him for a few moments on the phone. Clearly the boy has had the time of his life. “Give everyone a hug and let them know how special they are to me…”, he said. That is something we know all to well!

Traveling back to Chicago and the family he missed; Ronnie will be back tomorrow. I for one am a happy friend about that!

SHOUT OUT: Advisor Edward, My best friend, Isaiah, Former LBC party boy, Patrick, and finally, My Bitch Buffy

Cheers!
~Bill
