At some point during the week of September 13th, gay owned and operated Philly Cupcake will begin giving the passers-by on 12th Street a Cupcake Peep Show! Not even a year old and already getting so big! Philly Cupcake is expanding into an additional 500 square feet of space on 12th Street.
When you enter the cavernous warehouse performance space currently housing “Sanctuary” the extremely sexy new piece by out choreographer Brian Sanders’ JUNK, the ushers dutifully warn “If you sit in the first two rows you’ll get wet. Very wet.” This writer is too much of a gentleman and the piece is far too good to stoop to doubling that entendre. Resisting, however, will be hard. Er, difficult.
There’s a conspiracy happening in the gayborhood. It’s a conspiracy to fatten up the gays! They’ve put 10 – that’s right 10 dessert centric eateries in a 6 square block radius!
As long as you’re discussing interesting studies, might we get your thoughts on this little gem related the female enthusiasm for sex to red wine consumption. Also, what is the Female Sexual Function Index?
At one point during “Drunk Enough to Say ‘I Love You’?”, Caryl Churchill’s caustic allegory currently on-stage at the Walking Fish Theater, one character discovers an ability to control the fates of others. He suddenly declares, “God must have so much fun!”
I understand that your shows and parties are also fundraisers to help you in your running battle with the owner of Albert’s on Grant Avenue in the Northeast, where you had been operating the first successful gay nightspot in the Northeast until Albert Buoncristiano locked you out in a rent dispute. I sympathize with your plight and understand the frustration and anger you feel at how he has treated you. I would, however, like to offer a suggestion at this point…
Quince Productions is hitting hard once again with a double feature of sorts of Just Say Love and Beirut. Lucky enough to catch them both in one night, directors Daniel Student and Rich Rubin take the audience on a pleasant trip.
For 35 years, Billy Carroll has been doing just that. Moving crowds and telling stories with musical combinations, manipulating energy levels to provide unforgettable nights. He is a DJ that specializes in versatility, and, like a true renaissance man, he refuses to pigeonhole himself. Billy has traveled the world from Philly to LA to China, and his formative years afforded him the unique opportunity to moonlight as a guest DJ at perhaps the birthplace of the true music scene, the legendary Paradise Garage.
I review the glittery-yet-subdued space that is Q Lounge + Kitchen at 13th and Locust. I am pleased to report that not only were my assumptions proven correct, the new owners have dramatically improved the restaurant they inherited.
A 6+ year relationship ended early last year, and recently i’ve moved toward becoming “official” with one person after spending a year on my own, exploring, etc….She’s very sweet and we get along great and we have a mutual friend whom i have always been very friendly/flirtatious, but nothing has ever happened. Lately they go out on weekends and talk about me…. I’m just wondering if this is dangerous territory for me, despite the potential awesomeness that could (and most definitely would) ensue. If this turns threesome-y, I want to know potential dangers, etc…I don’t need to do ANYTHING to make it happen, I’m asking you basically if you were me what would you do?
