I just got an e-mail from a PR flack I know who is promoting a new gay bar in Hell's Kitchen: VLADA Lounge is very sleek, sophisticated and romantic and has an artsy hang-out kind of feeling. They will have a full menu, infused vodkas, fun entertainment, etc.
I remember a time not very long ago when a new bar opening -- much less one I was personally invited to -- would have made my week. And why not? Most weeks consisted of going out a minimum of five nights.*
VLADA Lounge looks like a lovely place, but tonight -- like most nights -- will be quiet time with Mikey (aka Bernard).
*Does this bring back any memories, Jay?
(Which isn't to say Mondays and Wednesdays couldn't involve going out, too.)
I know I'm not the first person in the world to realize he's grown up, but damn, I've grown up!
