Remember glory days passed, when you could go to a club and see men in all stages of (un)dress, wearing frocks or socks or their birthday suits? Well, you still can't see naked penises, buttocks or otherwise in these here parts
, but this Friday and every Friday thereafter Be Bar
has the next best thing to please your eyesockets. There will be heavily done-up drag queens and lightly dressed-down dancer boys galore at Boysroom
-- and with drag queens there, don't worry, it won't be as intimidating as the memories of high school gym class that the name might conjure. Hopefully there will be some towels though. Hearsay loves a good towel-snap
. Meanwhile, select guests (maybe those who bring their own towels? Good idea!) will be invited to go upstairs to the VIP area, rechristened the ''Varsity Practice Room''
for the night. They can even bring a go-go boy with them, to complete the Varsity baller effect. Who needs cheerleaders?
Be Bar's Mike Watson, who next Saturday will celebrate his birthday with a be big extravaganza tells Hearsay that ''Boysroom will be an innovative alternative Friday night. The idea was to kind of recreate the atmosphere of Ziegfeld's/Secrets, with drag shows and go-go boys.'' The name stems from a popular party in New York, but it's not affiliated. They'll even have a drag queen as DJ -- Lady Coco. ''She has never spun here before," Watson says, "but he has'' -- he being Coco's alter ego, Jason "Be:Bear Doll" Horswill. And then there'll be drag performances in the Kandy Patch, led by host Kristina Kelly. The night is sponsored by Andrew Christian and Manhunt.net. ''So yeah, guests should bring their laptop or mobile and wear Andrew Christian underwear,'' Watson jokes. And don't forget your towel....
