Watching Every Move at Private Eyes

Michael used to tell me how much fun the video bar Private Eyes was.

It was his first gay bar -- Madonna, Grace Jones and everyone went to this Flatiron hotspot -- right next-door to the famed Danceteria, which appeared in "Desperately Seeking Susan" and is where Madonna debuted "Everybody" to the world a couple years before.

Madonna and Sean Penn reportedly stopped by on their first date

I never made it there -- Palladium, Lure, Tunnel, King, Limelight, Club USA, Works, Uncle Charlie's and the Works are as far back as my NYC bars/clubs experiences go -- but from the looks of this 1989 clip, he sure was right! 

I'm told a shorter version of this used to run as an ad on public access' Channel J.
