MaiTai Gets a Room of Her Own

My friend "MaiTai D'Bauch" has started up a club night on the Lower East Side, putting a modern-day spin on Virginia Woolf's credo that every woman with a creative spark must have a room of her own. (Note to self: Must start club night. Also, read Virginia Woolf, i.e., "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," etc.)

MaiTai (in photo on right, DJ guardian angel on left) claims to be a 28-year-old male from Brooklyn, and I can attest to the Brooklyn part, but I'm not so sure about the rest. I think MaiTai only wishes she were a male-to-female impersonator.

According to the details on her MySpace page, MaiTai's status is "Swinger," orientation is "Bi," and she's a smokin', drinkin' Gemini with an occupation that combines debauchery, nightlife, marketing and promotion.

Are you a dirty faggot? A hung hetero? A slutty str8 girl, radical biker, girlboy, bear, leather daddy, androgynous punk, DL thug, porn slut, social terrorist, faerie queen, closeted politician, kinky hipster or camera whore?

MaiTai seeks to serve you.

"Hello Darlings," she says. "Let's bring a much needed dose of scandal to Alphabet City on Thursdays!"

Important Details:
* Club 40C, 40 Avenue C between 3rd & 4th
* June 26: Pride Party--426 people interested in going so far
* No cover
* $5 MaiTais all night
* Open bar 11 p.m. to midnight
* Debauchery in the back room ;)

You missed the opening night on June 19, billed as a pansexual party. Too bad. I was there (and plan to go again on July 3), with my sparkly costume jewelry and stick-straight hair teased up into a pile on the top of my head, trying to fit in as best I could with the pansexual theme. No picture of that, alas, though here's a nice one of gogo dancer Luc, who shimmied on the bar (if you want to see Luc's face, please click on the picture to see the full image):Photobucket

Come to the June 22 Brooklyn Blogade!

The Brooklyn Blogade is coming to town again on June 22, and I hope to see you there this Sunday at noon.

The Blogade is a monthly meet and greet for bloggers, blog
readers, and people who are thinking about becoming bloggers. It's a
great opportunity to network and to learn a thing or two about
blogging. It's also a great way to learn about new blogs. Blog blog blog, etc....

Photo-tastic Adrian Kinloch of Brit in Brooklyn is hosting this month's blogade so naturally the emphasis will be on photoblogging. Anyone who regularly uses images should find it useful and fun.

Brooklyn Blogade: Picture This
Sunday, June 22, Noon
Root Hill Cafe
4th Avenue and Carroll, Park Slope, Brooklyn
RSVP to:

If you are thinking of starting a blog you'll be in great company as
there'll be bloggers around who'll be happy to chat with you about
setting something up. We'll also talk about copyright, fair use and
backing up your work.

And that's not all! We'll also do our regular shout-out, where everyone gets to talk a bit about their blog. And we'll all have a chance after the main event to share, gripe, praise, and otherwise gossip and moan about how the blogosphere's growing importance throughout the universe.

See you there.
