On Saturday night, Toby and I met up with some folks we’ve known for years. A friend of ours, Jessica, was visiting from Seattle. Which basically just means an excellent reason to go out and spend cash. And it was well worth it, too. But I have to say, I was so disappointed that neither Toby nor myself brought along a camera, but Jon did. Jon took all of the images featured today. Enjoy the show!
First, we met at an over-priced bar called The Darkroom. The crowd there kind of sucked (in my opinion). And the drinks cost a bloody fortune. Everything other than PBR was outrageously priced. Maybe I’m used to Brooklyn booze prices. Who knows? Either way, crossing the river drives the prices up a couple of dollars. Damn you, Manhattan.
We decided to leave The Darkroom. I’m not sure whose idea it was, but somehow we ended up at The Slipper Room where we watched a giant gay bunny with a microphone make fun of the crowd, a woman eat carrots on stage while naked, Elvis, and another woman dance for dollars. It was the show of the century. It was a great night in that Twin Peaks sort of way. We had such a blast. And I hadn’t laughed that hard in quite some time.
(Captions, if any, are below each image.)

This woman started off the evening at the Slipper Room. Eventually, she took that little Bo-Peep dress off.
Here is the giant gay bunny. He was hilarious. But I hear he had really bad gas. Well, someone there did.
Here is his tail.
And here he is smoking.
This is Jessica and I posing for Jon.
And this is Jessica and I acting something out. I totally don’t remember the story behind this but she looks absolutely terrified of me.
Toby, Ryan and me.
Adam and the lovely dancer. (Toby and I might pay Jon to make an actual print out of this. The image is simply wonderful.)
Elvis and some fan.
Later, we went to a place called The Hole. It was pretty much exactly what you’d expect with a name like “The Hole” (only minus the sexual connotation). Toby, Ryan and I didn’t stay there longer than about 3 minutes. We were tired and decided to call it a night. Which was probably a good thing, because I hear they were out till 8 a.m. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that. heh.)
But before I left, I had to make a bigger ass out of myself. This is why I stay BEHIND the camera.
Jessica and Jason after we left. Cute!
Seriously, hanging out with those guys reminded me of why we need to make it out every once and a while. What a most excellent evening. Like I said, I hadn’t laughed that hard in ages.
