Last Week in Review
Matty’s celebrated their 3rd anniversary all weekend long to packed crowds with many giveaways each night. On Monday night, it was the finale to the Matty’s Calendar Contest hosted by Nicolette with Jayson Gerena winning the coveted cover model position (pictured here with calendar photographer Michael Murphy). Also Monday night it was standing room only with lines all along Wilton Drive to see Leslie Jordan at Bill’s Filling Station. Leslie was on stage for over an hour bringing the audience to continuous laughter. After the show he signed autographs and talked with his fans.
Edison Farrow’s Buck 15 reopened last Thursday to crowds lined out the door. Buck 15’s new hip space features a main room and 2 additional rooms to open within a few weeks. Daisy D was spinning funky beats, while the crowd danced to the remixes. Local bar owners and celebrities joined in on the night. Edison Farrow has brought back the same vibe and this night is sure to be successful once again! Never a cover, the Simple Life is back!
After the much successful Waterworks 3, a few months back, Discotekka decided it was time for Waterworks 4 and boy were they right as the crowd was enjoying the foam and water (and its definitely not bad to see sexy guys ½ naked in the foam…hehe) to the wee hours of the morning.
Sunday late afternoon was the monthly Lady Fancy’s Gospel Jubilee at Scandals and once again the place was packed. Even in this heat the patio was busy. This monthly event brings good ole fashioned Gospel music (the kind we were brought up with) back!
