“Every year we look forward to bringing together the people, charities and business that make up our extraordinary LGBTQ community,” said Patrik Gallineaux, Stoli’s National LGBTQ Ambassador and Brand Manager. “While our mission is to recognize the most talented and innovative bartenders, community will always be at the heart of Cocktail Classic. It has been a privilege to support and grow together over the years.”

A maximum of six LGBTQ trade staff and/or allies from 17 cities across North America will be selected to create an original cocktail using Stoli Vodka as their primary ingredient. A panel of judges and 100 eligible audience members will evaluate each cocktail based on taste, balance and presentation, as well as each bartender’s authenticity, knowledge, and creativity in presentation and performance.

The finalist from each regional competition will win a six-day, all-inclusive trip to participate in a week of events and celebratory entertainment culminating in the grand finale during Key West Pride 2017.

WEHO Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day …

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Business Wire
PRESS RELEASE
Oct. 27, 2011, 7:44 p.m. EDT
City of West Hollywood to Celebrate Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day on Saturday, October 29, 2011

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE)—The City of West Hollywood in conjunction with Eleven, Revolver and Micky’s nightclubs will host the first ever Go-Go Dancer Appreciate Day by holding a Go-Go Festival and Street Party on Saturday, October 29, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Larrabee Street near Santa Monica Boulevard between Eleven and Micky’s. Several other West Hollywood area businesses will also participate in Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day by holding special in-store events.

The Go-Go Festival and Street Party will offer guests a visual array of Go-Go dancers, choreographed performances of the Evolution of Go-Go; DJ Paulo Ramirez; and contests with prizes for Go-Go participants. The contests will be open to the public for any wannabe Go-Go dancers along with professional Go-Go dancers and will include categories such as Hottest Jock, Best Bootie, Twink, Best Package, Muscle Stud, and Amateur Go-Go Boy. To enter the contest, visit www.wehogogofest.com . A Grand Prize of $1,000 will be offered and celebrity judges include Bruce Vilanch, Leslie Jordan and Mayor John J. Duran. In addition, Eleven will host a choreographed show called “Evolution of Go-Go.”

The City of West Hollywood has a long history of being on the cutting edge of new artistic and musical endeavors. The Whisky A Go-Go, the first live music venue and the only surviving one to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, opened its doors in 1964 and soon after launched a trend that would ultimately become the norm in clubs all over the world by suspending cages with Go-Go dancers from the ceiling of the club.

In the mid-1960s and the 1970s, the Sunset Strip became a major center for the counterculture as Go-Go dancers did their thing at the Whisky and other clubs along the Strip. In 1968, the first Groovy Guy contest was started as a marketing tool for the then newly-formed Advocate magazine and as a way to unite the Los Angeles gay community. By 1970, the contest had become so famous that The Advocate featured a Groovy Guy float in the first gay pride parade down Hollywood Boulevard and that summer’s contest was held at Ciro’s Restaurant (now The Comedy Store). The Groovy Guy contest ran in one form or another through 1991.

By the early 1970’s both the female and male Go-Go dancing phenomenon was part of West Hollywood culture and dancers have been appreciated on stages big and small at clubs across the City ever since.

Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day will consist of the City working in conjunction with local businesses to stage an amateur Go-Go dancer competition on Larrabee Street north of Santa Monica Boulevard. Clubs along the Sunset Strip will also participate and businesses Citywide will be hold special events and offerings on Go-Go Dancer Appreciation Day.

Franco And Vilanch Make Up – All Is Right With The World

James Franco Makes Up With Bruce Vilanch (Updated)
Published: March 22, 2011 @ 1:01 pm
By Joshua L. Weinstein


James Franco and Bruce Vilanch officially are friends again.

In an email to TheWrap Tuesday afternoon, Vilanch said of the little feud: “It’s all over. We’re on a honeymoon.”

Previously:

James Franco has made up with Bruce Vilanch.

The two had been in a mini-feud since Monday, when Vulture reported that Vilanch, a long-time Oscar writer, apparently panned Franco’s performance as host.

Franco responded with a Tweet—which he has since deleted—reading, “Bruce, he let me down,” and a link to a photo mocking Vilanch. In that Twitter picture, Franco wrote, “James Franco f——- up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler!”

Now, all is well.

Vilanch, who told TheWrap’s Steve Pond, “I still want to have his baby,” apparently sent an email to Franco explaining his comments.

“I was trying to defend you,” Vilanch wrote.”Believe me, I would never diss you. that’s not my style. you should never take the gutter press too seriously.”

Franco apparently liked what he saw, printed and posted Vilanch’s email, and linked to it on Twitter. This time, he wrote over it, “Thanks Bruce. Sorry for reading stupid blogs.”

No word on whether Vilanch will be with child.
