Monday nights in Manhattan used to get us down. No theater. The weekend is over. But now we gays have something to look forward to – hot muscley shirtless guys, smoke machines, costumes and an over-the-top Weimar-themed show that evokes a 1920's Berlin-style cabaret. (Think Liza with a Z in Cabaret with her two gay boyfriends.)
Every Monday at 10:30 p.m., we can wash those Monday blues away with plenty of infused vodka at Vauxhall at Vlada Lounge. (And for a little cultural education, Vlada's named after the gay section of London, and it also means “train station” in Russian. Are all train stations in Russia like this new gay hotspot?)
They popped our Vauxhall cherries earlier this week with special guests Raven-O and Sherry Vine, who return again Monday to give us a double-dose.
And for the show queens and attention-starved thespians among us, Vauxhall was developed with the theater community in mind. Anyone can submit a 1920's-themed cabaret act as a YouTube link on Vlada's Facebook page, where they're voted on using the site's “Like” button. You may even be contacted to perform for future Vauxhall evenings.
Come to think of it, isn't that how Liza got her start?
