I’ve Missed Him:
Still feeling the spirit of the festivities at Winebar the other evening, I can’t wait to get my hands on Ronnie! I know he’s a big star now, but he was my pal before he was a star. I can’t tell you how funny that is to me! I liken it to my family’s relationship with the Gate’s family. Our two families have been friends for so long I can remember Bill before he became the richest man in the world. Just a regular guy, really!
Just before Ronnie left for New York, he and I had coffee together. I’ve thought about that time a lot over the last three months. He’s gone through so much since then. It’s made me think once again about the importance of saying what needs to be said, before it’s too late. I for one feel wonderful about everything that we said to each other. I am also VERY proud of my friend!
Once again I was the lucky guy to meet up with John M. for dinner at Angelina’s John is always great to hangout with! Hear Ye, Hear Ye, single boys, he’s available and might I say, well guarded by his pals. So please no psychos, stalkers, or weirdoes! We had a perfect dinner and were waited on by my pal and everyone else’s, Brett! I have to say hello to Bartender Danni! It was a delight to meet you! The nickname that Brett gave you was right on!!
From there we were off to Lakeview Broadcasting Co. to see my dear friend and celebrity bartender, Heather host an open bar. I have to say, if you haven’t been to LBC in a while, get back there! I’ve never had a bad time, the music is right on and owner Steven Westman is pretty hot!
Since Heather and I are going to be married (Side Note: See Will & Grace episode___) someday, she wanted to introduce me to her brother, Ross. Sweet lord was he a big boy! DAMN! It’s clear to see that this cute guy loves his sister! His wife to be, Mary (Side Note: Don’t you love it when a girl named Mary hangs out near Boystown!?) could not have been anymore sweet!
Trying to enjoy my box of wine (I know…) John and I had a great time chatting. (We always do!) Around 10:30, I started the trek home. John wanted me to meet his “Friend” Brett who was coming to meet up with him at LBC. Date? Not-A-Date? Time will tell. Turns out that Brett is one of my MySpace pals. We’ve talked about meeting up for a long time. It has to be said, he’s damn cute!
With a BEAUTIFUL Saturday in Boystown, (It’s gonna be 63 degrees!) I am eager to enjoy every minute of it! Of course a sunny day always makes folks ready for a randy night later. This evening I hope to run into former Chicago boy and ChicagoPride.com hottie, Anthony Fagiano. He surprised me the other night at Minibar|Winebar Fajjj is living his life up in LA as a promoter most assuredly under the gentle tutelage of Socialite Jonathan Chang.
Ronnie (See Picture Above) and I just met up at Caribou and he wants to come out and about tonight. SO, I will be hosting him tonight at Minibar. Join us!
