A challenge to the leather fetishists:

Throw a better pool party!!!! We could’ve had a more fun time at Mirabar on any random Tuesday night. In fact, we did — this week. And is music too much to ask for? Even some ABBA would’ve sufficed — certainly better than the argon

Next week’s Liza Minelli show STILL ON!!!

And after the snowstorm cancellation of the Mellencamp concert, the show had better go on. If the superintendent expects to keep his job: LIZA Minelli has surprised her doctors with a swift recovery from her collapse on stage three weeks ago, and will be back
