Will Generation LGBTQIA redefine the workplace?
Hey: Albums! In case people still care about these things, here's a batch of potentially interesting releases arriving in the calendar year.
Bar d'O was a gay-drenched downtown restaurant which lit up the '90s with a live, intimate cabaret show that was racy, soulful, and right up on your plate. The place closed, but fortunately it never really went away. For eight years, Indochine has been hosting Bar d'O reunion shows, and the one las ... More >>
Gene DiNino once owned the long-running skating-rink-turned-dance-club the Roxy (on West 18th Street) as well as an eponymous supper club called Eugene (on West 24th). But that was then.

When awards shows get nominated for awards, it's a little like a dog sniffing its own butt. And sure enough, the Emmys have nominated the Tonys, the Oscars, and the Golden Globes, all of which will probably end up competing for a Pulitzer! It's all so creepily incestual it's like a cult in ... More >>
Interviewing vocal powerhouse Martha Wash at Barracuda last night, I asked her how it feels to sing "It's Raining Men" as just one Weather Girl. (The other one, Izora Armstead, sadly died in 2004.) Wash said it was a little odd at first, but she eventually got used to it. And why not, I sa ... More >>

And though he remains a national treasure, his eyes do tend to wander, even today. On Monday night, British songstress Adele ... More >>
That's Dean & DeLuca's Robert Lambert cake on the left, Myers of Keswick's Bryson's of Keswick cake on the right. Ah, fruitcake.
