Lounging, to Say the Least

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?

  • Tuesday: Beige
  • Thursday: g
  • Friday: Starlight / East Village neighbors (Boiler Room in the '90s)
  • Saturday: g / Roxy
  • Sunday: Barracuda (Splash in the '90s)
    (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!

    Brings back memories to ME, actually. Hearing about all your exploits at the morning, er, staff meetings. Good times.
