Daily Dapper: Happy Memorial Day Weekend (Events)

If you’re in search of some unique fabulousness this Memorial Day weekend, there are an assortment of events to attend and get wild at. I will spotlight just two this Sunday. First up, we have the return of Lee Chappell‘s infamous DR!P party this time taking the action from one island to another. Fire Island Pines shall play host to this insanely wet pool party. Rest assured my partner in crime and editor, Demanda Dahling, and me will surely be jumping in the pool to join any other psychopaths who decide to let loose.

"City Nights" boogies at 'Oh! You Pretty Things' BOWIE-ELVIS Birthday Bash'

It sucks being fashionable in the dead of winter here in New York City. I’m one of those individuals who will suck it up when it’s thirty degrees out just so I could wear a polyester 70’s reject prom tuxedo. But, this is ridiculous. “Christ, these nipples could cut glass right now,” I spouted to the girl waiting in line behind me. The things we all do for a fabulous event and this one was well worth it. Sunday night saw Le Poisson Rouge invaded for Oh! You Pretty Things’ “BOWIE-ELVIS Birthday Bash” presented by Michael T, Benjamin Ickies, Shien Lee, Twig the Wonderkid, and Laura Rebel Angel. Woof! Yes, a lot of names came out to bring us this flawless event and that’s not counting the hosts, performers, artists, and attendees in general who all arrived dressed to the nines.

Demanda Endorses: A Pretty Night for Pretty Things

Leave it to nightlife legend Michael T to throw a MLK Weekend party in tribute to the two kings in his life–Elvis Presley and David Bowie. That’s right, it’s what he describes as a “birthday bacchanalia for rock’s two greatest capricorns.”  And ladies and gentlemen, I couldn’t agree more.  First, the fact he describes his party using the alliterative “birthday bacchanalia” puts a little tingle in my flower.  Secondly, a Bacchanalia is the only way to accurately describe his  holiday weekend spectaculars, known by the most appropriate name, Oh! You Pretty Things.  What him and co-producers Twig the Wonderkid, Ben Ickies and Laura Rebel-Angel present is not just a party, but an experience.  And it’s a fucking fun one at that.

Demanda Endorses: Tricks and Treats for All-Hallows-Eve

You probably know by now that Demanda never turns down a good party.  And although Halloween is really just amateur dress up day, I most definitely will not be staying in this evening.  Neither will any of the night’s pros as everyone will be serving up full looks for your viewing pleasure.  Believe it or not, I dislike crowds and am skipping the damn parade, but can be found rolling around on the ground of these fabulous parties–



BLOODY MARY BORDELLO:  Nightlife powerhouse Susanne Bartsch moves her weekly Tuesday party, ON TOP, to tonight for a special Halloween trick.  Spanning two floors on top of the Standard Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, Bartsch’s glamour fest features creatures from every corner of the city and was just named Paper Magazine’s Best Weekly Party.  The night is presented by Bartsch, Amanda Lepore, Desi Monster, Kayvon Zand, Jeremy Kost and Theodora and hosted by New York’s most sensational sinners, including Jordan Fox, Anna Evans, Muffinhead, Darian Dahling, Rachel Singer and One-Half Nelson.  DJ’s Johnny Dynell, Will Automatic, Michael Magnan and Alex From Tokyo make sure you never stop moving.  Last year, Bartsch’s Bloody Mary Halloween at Good Units was so wild it was shut down within two hours.  Dare we go for round two?
