Hustlaball Vegas Party with Brent Corrigan, Josh Vaughn, Chi Chi La Rue

Hustlaball 2007 was definately a blast. We did not make it to the pool party since it was shut down by the ATF or police. I have heard several rumors on this and not sure the real cause for the pool party to be shut down. It was too cold to be out running around in skimpy outfits anyway.

brentcorrigan-joshvaughn-kissing-krave-sm2.JPGThere were many hotties at the Hustlaball event as you can imagine. Brent Corrigan, Josh Vaughn (pictured below in a pose like they are making out), Pierre Fitch, and Ralph Woods (pictured below) are some of the hot twink stars to name a few. There were also celebrities including dj and porn producer Chi Chi La Rue and comedian Bruce Vilanch. The entertainers were Raven O and some others that I was not familiar with but enjoyed watching their backup dancers.

We suffered through a cold front that took us by surprise but there were also some wonderful surprises we did not expect. Chi Chi La Rue did a fabulous job spinning at the Skin Trade party where she promoted her Channel 1 Releasing on Thursday night before the Hustlaball party. It was my first time to hear her spin and I loved it. Britney Spears even made an appearance at the closing party. It was definately the best event so far this year.

I apologize for the small pictures. I will have to fix this when I get back home. This internet connection is not cooperating with me! I will have more posted on Boizone.com later this week.

Hustlaball Event

Britney Spears spotted at Gay Vegas Nightclub

You have probably heard of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton spotted at nightclubs lately but now the diva has been spotted twice this week at gay clubs.  The GayVN expo and Hustlaball had their final party tonight at Piranha Nightclub in Vegas and Britney Spears walked in to shock everyone.  We have heard from Krave nightclub she was originally supposed to go there but decided to make an appearance at Piranha where she partied it up in V.I.P. Cabana number two.  The security escorted her around everywhere so we could not even get a picture.  Which everyone should let her party without all the hassle anyway.

We were happy to see Britney come out and party at Club Piranha tonight and hope she comes out again.  It certainly made everyones night.  She was also spotted at Club Tigerheat last Thursday night in Los Angeles.  Piranha nightclub and 8 1/2 also had an appearance from Janet Jackson last month.  This seems to be the new place in Vegas for celebrities to be seen.

John Brady Hollywood Avalon Party Disaster

I spent New Years in the beautiful city of Los Angeles to bring in 2007 while attending the Pam Ann comedy show then visited Rage nightclub for the final new year’s countdown but there was a major disappointment. I was supposed to attend the event I had VIP passes until I found out it was downtown with DJ Ralph Rosario called Last Dance. I heard about an event a go-go dancer friend of mine told me about to be held at Avalon. I went to Avalon paid for a $100 Vip pass because I heard that Kristine W would be there. There would also be Nemisis, Ana Kokalot, and DJ Tracy Young (who Madonna adores). Tracy Young did a fabulous job along with DJ Joe Gauthreaux and so did Kristene W.

SO what went wrong with the John Brady event at Avalon in Hollywood? First of all the crowd was much lower than anticipated. They did not even have the upstairs open because they wanted the room to look filled. The VIP area was closed early even after I paid $100 for VIP. The entire event seemed very unorganized but I will say they had some hot bartenders to make up for it.

Kristine W took stage and you could not hear her vocals at all. They had some annoying drummer banging some circuit beat that was louder than her and the circuit music was overpowering her vocals as well. I just wanted to scream it sounded so horrible. I felt so sorry for Kristine W because she probably did not know it sounded so bad what they did to her voice.

The Nemisis performance was even worse. Their vocals sounded like they were in a basement screaming outwards. I am not sure what happened but I hope the other John Brady events turn out better than that. I do not plan on attending another John Brady engagement.

I was also disappointed in the RAGE countdown for new years on one song. the number one song RAGE had for 2006 was from Shakira?!?! What is up with a Shakira 2005 song being #1 in 2006? I did not get to hear Tigerheat’s countdown since I was too drunk to notice so no complaints there!

Castro Bars

Badlands #1 San Francisco Gay Club

This is where the party seems to be every night in San Francisco.  I was in San Francisco over the holidays and it was packed with people every single night.  Badlands had great music and a cute little dance floor.  The bar/club is way congested but it is a place to be if you want to socialize in San Francisco.  Badlands is definitely the best place to go for dancing in the Castro since there is nothing better in terms of size of a dancefloor or music that I noticed in the area.

The Boy Bar Night @ The Bar:

This is a night where they have younger dancers on stage at the bar off of Market and Castro next door to Subway.  The boy bar night is held on Thursdays.

The Café – is the really red looking club you see on the Castro.  I wouldn’t call this small place a club it is more of a room with a small hallway like dancefloor and a patio for smokers.  The Café is very trendy and seems to be mixed with some straight people as well as gays.

Friday Nights (after 11pm or so) and Sunday Mornings –

EndUp (401 Sixth Street @ Harrison) – the EndUp looked scary from the outside and kind of scary on the inside and had a jacked up dancefloor which seems like you are dancing inside someone’s attic.  The EndUp had a really cool outside patio and a few rooms to venture into.  I would not take any party favors to the EndUp they have someone at the front door asking what every little thing in your pockets are like you are going through a TSA line.  That alone makes that club suck.

Saturday nights:

If you are going out in the Castro area on Saturday I recommend Mezzanine for the  circuit crowd and Badlands for the drinking and dancing crowd.  Then there is the EndUp for early in the morning.

Tuesday night – Tranny night at Stud Bar.  This was quite a night that gave San Francisco a different taste than any other city.  It was so much fun because there were so many short shows put on by different drag queens that were very creative and fun.  Be prepared to be stuffed into this small bar where you cannot get a drink or move to goto the bathroom.  The people were rather jerks if you wanted to come back from the bar or from the bathroom from the spot that you previously had.  I guess there is no movement allowed during the Tranny show at the Stud Bar.

Other Castro Bars:

Metro City Bar & Grill (3600 16th Street @ Market) – fun bar with a view and a nice revolving crowd.

Hotels in San Francisco

I researched online intensely when booking my stay in San Francisco. There are many areas that you can stay in which are considered the best gay friendly hotels since it’s an openly gay and liberal city. My favorite hotels are normally closer to the clubs since that is where my travel takes me. There are many districts in San Francisco including Fisherman Wharfs, Golden Gate Park, Union Square, and the Castro district. You can get deals at hotels from TravelZoo.com at hotels like the Kensington Park Hotel – San Francisco near Union Square.

I stayed at the Inn on Castro which is a nice Victorian looking building on the outside facing Castro and States street. The Inn on Castro featured no parking unless you wanted to walk up and down a steep hill on States street which did not seem like fun to me. There is also parking down the street on 14th street but make sure you move your car when the street sweepers come by or during Monday through Friday 8am to 6pm there is NO WHERE to park in the area. And I mean there is NO WHERE to park during the Monday through Friday business hours./p> The Inn on Castro (innoncastro.com) severed up a free breakfast and had free Wi-Fi but the Wi-Fi had problems when I was staying there. There are also some strange electrical problems at the hotel as well where the fuse went out in the bathroom making the lights and outlets go out until they could reset them. The small Inn is close to the clubs in Castro so you can walk around drunk from the gay bars being a great convenience.

You may also rent out a flat near the Painted Ladies or rent out flats (vrbo.com) if you have a big group of friends coming in town to party or vacation with you. Other hotels you may consider that are close to the gay clubs:

  • Ramada Inn at 1231 Market Street with $25 parking (was around $135 a night)
  • Hilton – 333 O’Farrell Street, $45 parking

Best Drag Performances of 2006

Daisy Deadpetals performing Madonna Hung Up

I want to give it up to Daisy DeadPetals or Daisy D of Ft. Lauderdale. She is just amazing to watch at Coliseum and the Voodoo Lounge on Sunday Nights. Her best performance I was lucky enough to see was on New Years Eve at

Daisy Deadpetals performing at Voodoo Lounge

Coliseum nightclub singing to Madonna’s Hung Up. I love performances that have backup dancers it makes it seem like you are really at Madonna’s concert. Daisy D wore an outfit that looked just like the one featured in Hung Up and really got the crowd energized.

I also thought Whitney Paige had a great performance in Dallas this year to a Whitney Houston song. She feel to the ground and threw off her heels and just went wild and the crowd went wild too. The performance from Whitney Paige on a few Saturday nights at Station 4 definitely made the crowds hair stand up.

Gay New Years Events

The largest party night of the entire year deserves the largest party. Stay away from Vegas and NYC while celebrating New Years this year and get away from the overcrowded street mess watching balls drop and running into each other. The best place to be is inside your favorite nightclub celebrating with your closest friends or inside a huge New Years Eve top notch event.
Here is a list of the hottest events going on in the gay communities across the US for New Years Eve:

Pick One: Los Angeles New Years Eve – Hollywood Palladium (6215 Sunset Blvd.)

The New Years Los Angeles presented by Jeffery Sanker starts out with comedy from Pam Ann on Friday, December 29, 2006 at the Hollywood Palladium (6215 Sunset Blvd.). The show starts at 9pm.

Friday night – Last Dance with DJ Ralphi Rosaro and DJ Brett Henrichsen to be held at the Mayan Theater (1038 S. Hill Street, LA,CA). The party goes on from 9pm until 8am.

New Years Eve – December 31, 2006 – DJ Manny Lehman with a special performance from Flava. Party starts at 9pm until 4am at the Hollywood Palladium (6215 Sunset Blvd)

NYE Afterhours – January 1, 2007 – The first dance of the year will be held at the Hollywood Arena (6655 Santa Monica Blvd) immediately following the New Years Event at the Palladium. The first dance will feature DJ Phil B.

PIck Two: New England New Years – Chris Harris Presents – chrisharrispresents.com – Grand opening of Roxy Providence in Providence, RI. The Get Your Cha Cha Hills On singer will be there Jeanie Tracy singing “Party People”.

PIck Three: New Orleans – Bourbon Pub Parade – DJ Darren Thomas, $1,000 balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight. There will be a special Miss Gay America 2006 performance from Nicole Dubois. Bourbon Pub Parade owns the gaynewyears.com domain but their new years event line up is nothing compared to Club Oz in New Orleans. Club Oz will be featuring the bigger name DJ Alison Calgagna and Susan Palmer will be performing.

Pick Four: Atlanta, GA – Club Jungle – DJ Chris Cox

Runner Up: Coliseum Nightclub, Ft. Lauderdale, FL – this was last year’s hot spot who featured Kristine W. with a beautiful jazzy New Years Music. The Coliseum Nightclub website has yet to see any New Years announcement this year but I know it will be good as always.  Last year Daisy D did an awesome performance of Madonna Hung Up – I am sure she has something big in store for this year as well!
Then there are always your buddies at your Local Pub/Club/Bar. I sometimes hate traveling on New years because I cant see my bar family but its so much fun to be out of town for a bigger event.
