You may have heard this already but the five year lease is up on the mid town mainstay, the 9th Ave. Bistro and the last night to go get drunk and party with your pals is Sunday August 24th. The landlord ballooned the rent up to “market value” insuring that the Bistro would evacuate the premises to make way for… what? Another bank? A high end restaurant?
Of course you see where this is going, the closing leaves the Porno Bingo team (myself, bartender Manny, our once a month visitor Amanda, our graphic designer Muffin Taco and our amazing photographer A.B) without a home on Wednesday nights. So, we’re trying to figure out what’s next.
I hope you’ll join us this Wednesday night August 20th from the special starting time of 8pm for our very last night at the 9th Ave. Bistro, a night where we can raise some cash for Braking the Cycle https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=266826&supid=220032633, have a drink or ten and generally have as good a time as we can.
Have a good time? Well, in situations like this, one can either wring one’s hands, or one can dance.
And we are going to figuratively dance the night away going until even WE’VE had enough! (and let me tell you, after three and a half years, my tolerance for ‘enough’ is quite high)
We have a full slate of musical guests including JC and Sinn of Nekked, Terry Christopher, Baron, Roger Kuhn, Morry Campbell, Dan Manjovi and of course for an event like this, the requisite ‘surprise guests’. Plus we’ll have a raffle for an Original Gay Ken Doll, a Will and Grace full series DVD set and a movie musical DVD set (which includes Flashdance, Footloose, Moulin Rouge, Dreamgirls and Chicago)
You don’t have to take the day off of work on Thursday in order to have a good time Wednesday night … but it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to plan ahead.
