I've just about recovered from last night's events, where team Subline won the Golden Handbag Quiz night, and I had my first alcohol for almost three weeks. Apologies to anyone I may have offended..!
With one handbag in the... er, bag... the scintillating taste of success is driving our appetites; and I'd really like to collect a bunch this year. I can appreciate there's a bit of election fatigue setting in for many, but if you pop yourself to the GScene website and vote in the Golden Handbags, the following are my personal preferences...
1) Favourite Gay Club : Subline
3) Favourite Club Night : Club Silencio
5) Favourite Bar Small Capacity : Subline
9) Landlord of the Year : Steven Lee
11) Favourite Local Singer : Jason Thorpe
12) Favourite Bar Boy : Ian Sinclair / Subline
14) Favourite Brighton DJ : DJ Screwpulous (Maurice)
15) Favourite Brighton Hotel : Granville Hotel
17) Favourite Door Hostess : Polly
18) Favourite Door Security : Carl / Subline
20) Favourite Business : The Brighton Sauna
21) Favourite Community Social etc. : Brighton Bear Weekend
Moving on from that; forthcoming events!
It's another bank holiday weekend ahead: we open at 10pm on Saturday, LEATHERMEN SOUTH in attendance, with DJ Screwpulous providing the tunes, and entry free in leather gear (£5 otherwise.) Sunday night from 9pm is CUM IN YOUR PANTS, the underwear party with DJ Nude. Entry is free to members, £5 for non-members.
Next week, on Thursday May 4th, Club Silencio go on their MISSION TO YOUR ANUS. This was originally scheduled for April, but the "May the fourth be with you" pun couldn't be missed, or something... Doors open 8:30pm, and entry is £6. It's open to everyone, and will shock and amaze in unique style, or your money back! *
On Friday 12th we welcome The Big Scrum, doors open at 10pm, and entry is £5 in sports wear, £7 otherwise
The following week, Friday 19th sees Kitten Skye and company return with Filth, the monthly full-fetish event. This month the theme is "Let's Get Medical"... Find Filth on Facebook to get your tickets!
There's a new event launching on Thursday 25th - Time to Talk! Starting at 8pm, and open to all, it's to be a lively discussion about sex, drugs, and depression! Seriously, trying to explain it concisely is tough; but if you look the event up on Facebook or the Subline website, there's some more explicit information.
The end of May sees Cum In Your Pants on Sunday 28th, and then on Monday 29th we're having a 100th Birthday Party! Well, it's my 40th and Polly's 60th the same week, so we thought we'd lump them together, pop the trestle tables up and throw a few vol au vents in their general direction, and have a bit of a gathering. Doors will be open from 4pm to 10pm
That's another month down, and the delights of June (BEAR WEEKEND!!) are fast approaching; next time!
