Running With The Night

This week is so HUGE in my blogger family! With my Gothamist Interviews this week and my cousin-in-law, Chris Rabb from the Afro-Netizen blogging about the Democratic Convention in Boston, we've got the politics and entertainment thing covered. Anyway here is an excerpt of his latest post.
[Attention readers: These blog entries may contain high doses of sarcasm. Please read with caution.]

I'll be hoofin' it to the Fleet Center shortly to join the 15,000 credentialed journalists who are covering this suspenseful political extravaganza (he says sardonically)!
After all, other than knowing the nominee-to-be, his running-mate, and the Democratic Party's official 2004 platform, we don't know anything! For instance, where is the Utah delegation going to be situated? And who will be holding the tazer-gun when presidential footnote Al Gore takes the podium?

[As you can see, sarcasm runs in the family] To read more, check it out HERE.

What's Going ON?

Yay! My first Gothamist Interview is up. Jessy Delfino kindly agreed to be interviewed before she gets all Courtney Love on us! If you have comments, bring 'em here!

By the way, Jessy is one of the VERY funny women who are performing next Tuesday August 3rd at the Chicks and Giggles show!

Ultragrrrl is gonna get me fired from my day  job by posting a link to Tetris.  I was playing on my lunch break.

Why Can't I Be You?

Just Like Heaven
Champagne in a can...Have you tasted it yet? Well,
this week I was blessed to have sampled the
sparkling Sofia. This
bubbly comes from Francis Coppola vineyards, and I
bet the kiddies in the Hamptons are loving it. Now I
can't wait for Marc Jacobs to create a signature
orange juice so that I can drink designer mimosas for
Sunday brunch!

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

Last Friday, I had the opportunity to see Dylan
Moran's Monster at the Village Theatre (158 Bleecker
St.) for free. However, I really wanted to get some
sleep, but my new motto is "you can sleep when you
die". So I attended and laughed heartily at the
irreverent comedy of Irishman Dylan Moran. It was
fun, and I even saw Jerry Orbach from "Law and
Order" in the audience! The
show was being taped for BBC America, so you may
see me in the audience when it airs this fall. By the
way, I heard that "Monster" has been extended, so
make sure you check out for "sh!ts and giggles"!

Boys Don't CryA week after Gay Pride, and I am thinking where are
the manly straight men? I'm guessing that they
are all at a bar somewhere talking about women and
relationships while downing shots of tequila. These
guys should probably check out one of my favorite
New York bar guides, Murph Guide
everyday to see what places have the best
happy hour. Cheers!

Just Say Yes

Say yes as I call upon all you Nichelle Newsletter fans
to come out on Tuesday, July 6 for the 3rd
monthly "Chicks and Giggles" show! The stellar lineup
includes Carolyn Castiglia, Laura Mannino, Lena
Martinez, Amy Mahfouz, Veronica Mosey, Abby
Rosin, Jenny Rubin, and Jill Twiss. The cover is only
$8 with a two-drink minimum. The door is at 8PM,
and the show starts at 8:30 PM at the Laugh Lounge and call 212.614.2500 for reservations.


What in the heck was I thinking last week?! I
actually posted a personal ad in Craig's List
after writing the newsletter. (Dumb move!) I was quickly
overwhelmed with a deluge of emails from creepy
guys who claimed to be lawyers. I took the post
down after less than a day. I soon realized that
this single thing is better left
unsaid. Anyway, if you ever want to be entertained by CL, then check out
Amy Blair's "The Week in Craig" column on Black Table .

Hot Hot Hot!

There are some folks that are being much buzzed
about lately and I just to bear witness to their
brilliance. First up is Demetri
Martin, comedian. I first saw his act at
Moonwork back last winter, and he's very funny
and pretty cute. His show is called Spiral Bound. Also I gotta say that I really
enjoyed listening to Mike Sandwich , a wild and crazy band from Astoria, Queens who played last weekend at Coney Island.

If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free

Be Still My Beating Heart
Last Saturday, I discovered a few things. First, my friend told me that I can quickly get to Astoria from Harlem by taking the M60 bus. Then I heard this really cool band named Sawyer from Boston play at the Bohemian Beer Garden. Those kids rocked! Finally, I found the new malt beverage of my dreams, Smirnoff Twisted Green Apple. It's way better and cheaper than an apple martini!

My friends and I fell in love with the fruit-infused vodka and the charming bartender at Russian Samovar, a Russian Vodka bar and restaurant (256 West 52nd Street). I really enjoyed the Old World charm of this Midtown haunt. We sampled exotic flavors such as plum, peach, lemon and even coriander and cleansed our palates with delicious appetizers. It's a fun place for a date, too and you can have the piano guy play your favorite tune!

Send Your Love
It's Extremely Gay week here in the In-Why-See. (Love that Ted Casablancas!) By the end of the week, I will have attended a gay blogger reading, gone to the Mermaid Parade and maybe watch the Gay Pride Parade on Sunday. But the gayest thing EVER is to be married to Liza Minelli!

An Englishman in New York
From the Anglophile files... One of my favorite bloggers is Guy Brighton's New York Guide. He has a listing of all the places to watch the Euro 2004. Plus, he's reviewed many cool bars and restaurants in NYC.

If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free
OK, so I am single, single and single. I get so many emails about summer shares and sublets that I got an idea. Instead of posting an ad about wanting a summer share, I want to post an ad for sharing the summer. Hopefully, this will help me find my one true desire, a summer boyfriend. I just want "some dude" from June 23 to Labor Day. If anyone knows any seasonal boyfriend candidates, then let me know. Thanks!
