Hey all - this weekend there's a big party going on out in Cherry Grove (Fire Island) and if you've not heard of it (and if you haven't heard of it, you must not be breathing), check out the Fire Island Bear Weekend website - there are dance parties (DJed by Jonny Mack and Brut DJ Dan Darlington), Daniel Nardicio's world famous underwear party (and dude, do not accept any substitutes on this one.. this is the Fire Island original and by far the best), beach activities and a Saturday night contest hosted by Tina Burner. The weekend is sponsored by Scuff and New York's biggest one stop shop for leather wear - The Leatherman! This is not to be missed!
As regular readers of this blog know, I was supposed to co-emcee the contest with Tina but my schedule didn't look like it was going to work out for this weekend, so I had to back out in March, which gave promoter/producer Shane Tate plenty of time to find a great cohost, Danny Logan (you might recognize him from a previous life as a certain French themed performer from Texas...).
The whole weekend will be filled with bears, buds, and great times - you will have a blast whether you go for the weekend, or a day trip.
And while I know for sure that there are a couple of contestants already lined up, I'm sure that there is always room for one more. CLICK HERE to go directly to the contest page where you can sign up. Last year we had two or three contestants signed up beforehand, and about four that showed up at the door. But I know for certain that Shane, Tina, and Danny would appreciate it if you could sign up early.. so go now and sign up and you too can live on the prize money and live the life of our lady of leisure, Chris Pagano has for the past 12 months. Ok, you know that's a joke right? However, there is a cash prize and you'll be the face/body of the 2017 edition of Fire Island Bear Weekend.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
