Where do I begin with this one?
Well, I'm moving to the Bronx after 2 years in Jersey City. I don't plan on being there long. In fact, I will most likely be gone before year's end. With a BIG THANKS to my step-dad, I started moving my things in the morning of Memorial Day after getting about 2 1/2 hours sleep after getting home from go-go dancing and fro-licking at Daniel Nardicio's "Ships In!" party. After we took some of my things over there, we came back to Brooklyn to the house I grew up in for a cookout in the backyard. I stuffed my face with a big pair of barbecue ribs, at least 2 hamburgers, and 2 hot dogs.
I called a few friends I haven't talk to in a while. I also spoke to my friend Andrew who was recently mugged and stabbed, and featured in the HomoDish section of HX Magazine here in NY. We agreed to meet up later at View Bar, and I was looking forward to seeing him for the 1st time since the attack. After all, he sounded great on the phone, so I wanted to see in person if Andrew's high spirit was still there. He arrived later than expected, but I was glad to see that he was still the same witty guy so many have come to enjoy being in the company of, even with his new red Mohawk.
I wear glasses, so I wasn't sure at first, but as I was arriving at View Bar walking down 8th Avenue getting closer to the corner at 22nd Street, I tried to make out to see if the 2 guys I saw standing in front of View Bar were who I suspected. It turns out I was right. They were Vin Nolan and Sergio Anthony. Once I saw them, I said to myself, "This is going to be an even more fun night than I expected."
When I get with Vin and Sergio, I always wind up in something that draws attention to me on days when I not a featured performer. That isn't a hindrance because it puts my name out there to more people in New York who don't know of me. So actually it's a welcomed surprise. Last time, it was me winding up stripped down to my skivvies on stage at The Cock. So what did hanging with these guys get me into this time?
I wound up in View Bar's Wet Underwear Contest with Manuel Torres as the evening's guest celebrating his birthday.
I had no problem with it. Me, Vin, Sergio, go-go boy Torrez, and a few more hot guys wet in a pool. If you remember my blog about my hot wet guy fetish, then you can figure out that in that pool, I was happier than a pig in slop. And Manuel Torres took some of the birthday boy advantages of the sight of those wet bodies that I would have like to have had. Some of those other advantages I wanted are things you can't do in a bar. Well, at least not one as open as View Bar ;-) Why don't I get treats like this on my birthday? Damnit!
We didn't win, but me and Sergio did get some good rounds of applause for our asses. So at first, the crowd didn't know my name, but they learned it after finding out whose ass they were admiring. which like I said - was a welcomed surprise.
So I'm just going for a peaceful night out to watch some shenanigans, and instead THANKS to Vin and Sergio, I become a part of the shenanigans. Well guys, what are you going to get me into next?
