Attention all soldiers -- and of course, soldier-groupies. Friday, Cobalt is hosting its first-ever all day, all night Military Party. The club is requesting patrons dress up -- in camouflage/military, leather, black or any uniform you’d like, including presumably business attire, as The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is throwing its official annual dinner after-party in the club that night as well. (Just pretend you're a high-level civilian official from The Pentagon.) And if you just go as a bear, well, Cobalt is the site of the Real Man’s Happy Hour, which starts at 5 p.m. every Friday.
For this latest iteration of Cobalt’s Flight 1639 party – don’t forget to sign up for your boarding pass for free entry – go-go dancers will wear camo and military attire, and Ronnie “Fighting Illlini” Kroell will serve as host after 11 p.m. Kroell, you'll recall, was the runner-up on Bravo’s Make Me A Supermodel – he was the gay half of a “bromance” with prison guard Ben “Under Orders” DiChiara – and most recently appeared on the cover of Instinct magazine, September issue. Maybe he’ll show the crowd his camo-Calvins!
Local DJ Darryl “That Was Easy” Strickland will spin until 10 p.m., and then former D.C. resident Angelo “Tribal Tantra” Kortez returns from Miami to stir things up.
No need to take off work, just take off early: the party starts at 5 p.m. and goes until 3 a.m. -- a full night’s worth of fun, plus a little overtime (if you’re lucky). Sir!
