Two Wonderful Opening Nights

I love bingo. It’s my addiction. I even have BINGO tattooed on my right shoulder. It’s like that. Well, bingo with Linda Simpson will have its grand opening tonight at that brand new boîte that everyone is chatting about, The Lodge Club (35 West 8th Street). I’m going and dragging along some friends. It starts at 7:30pm, so my contemporaries have no excuse. It ends around 10, so they can be in bed with warm milk and Letterman and be chipper at work the next day. I haven’t been to The Lodge yet, as my summer end collided with a slew of projects. Man about town and DJ extraordinaire and smooth operator of the joint Terry Casey keeps asking me, so I will show.

Bowery Electric (327 Bower)y, is re-launching their Wednesday nights. Kayvon Zand had me going most weeks last year for his Dorian Gray sex-fest and he is in this mix again. A plethora of fantabulous people are involved, including Michael T, Formika, Jesse Malin, Johnny T, Sophia Lamar, Pablo Rizzo, Cynthis Ross, Jaki Doyka and Sam Harris. The DJs are Jonathan Toubin, Howie Pyro, Alix Brown and Sienna. For tomorrow night’s opening soirée Leonard Graves Philips of the Dickies will perform. The Party is called Sally-Can’t-Dance ny au-go-go. On paper this looks like the ultimate party for that leather jacket clad set that dance to the beat of different drummers …or DJs.Toubin is my favorite DJ not named Paul Sevigny and Howie Pyro, and the rest will be unpredictably wonderful. This is not the same ol’ same ol’ bore that everyone says nightlife has become. This is a must attend event. See you there.
