I'm starting to get excited coming up this weekend Saturday 11th February is The Polly's Club Mardi Gras Dance Will Present '' Friends Of Dorothy '' At The Marrickville Town Hall From 7pm-12am Entry $25 the show is produced by Daisy with the Polly's cast, Prize for best dressed PS be there early otherwise you'll be standing up .. www.thepollysclub.com.au
Also in February the NEW V-Bar Social Dance at Coolibah Hotel Merrylands with the night providing something for everybody V-Bar upstairs and Karaoke downstairs. People now have something to do on a Friday night the next dance is 17th February from 7pm-12am $10 Music by Dj Shaft with a Madonna Tribute show with Melicious Dámage , Delilah VonTramp & Victoria A Bitch ... fingers crossed people will supported it on a Friday night because they did not support the LGBTQ event there Friday night might be a winner ?? Remember in 2014 people said two social dances in western Sydney was '' TOO MUCH '' so we reduced heaven to 6… but after last weekend’s huge success for the heaven at new club, maybe people want more ,more, more ??? Only time will only tell gorgeous.
The fabulousity which is Fair Day Sunday 19th February , started as soon as we exited the car and were approached by a young man who offered us a "service" in the laneway in glebe last year .. considering it was the second time in 18 years that I have attended Fair Day as a boy and I still nearly got lucky, he made me feel like a dirty old man so we ran off to Victoria Park to join in the festivities... But this year fair day is on the move to a NEW LOCATION = Camperdown Memorial Rest Park , Newtown.. Fair Day will an eye opener this year as I will be just one of thousands check out the new park! Just one of thousands the people sitting on a blanket in front of the main stage. It's a sign that I really am a nobody, nobody will recognised me or will they after being plastered all over the Liverpool & Fairfield Champion (the local paper) in and out of DRAG !! OMG !!
When Fair Day is over you know the Parade is soon to follow on 04 March . After walking and working the parade for 17 years, this year be any different lol As last year I watched the parade and enjoyed it so much now I'm getting older, it seems the route gets longer... despite offers to be part of a float, this will be the second year in a row that I will be watching the parade from VIP Area and dashing off to the party with my partner in crime. I just had too much fun last year at the Party out of drag. I'd like to see more floats and social groups from the West be involved, it seems everyone splits into other groups at Mardi Gras time when it should be a time that we unite?
Which Western Sydney drag queen now feels the need to attack me/heaven just to promote something she's doing !! Last time I pay her for anything gorgeous. In other gossip, which former Western Sydney drag superstar has been BANNED from all the Asian fabric shops ? Apparently she was caught putting things in her bag while she was walking around the show Oh no !! And which Western Sydney Drag star might have bitten off more than she can chew by working up to 6 nights a week ? = BREAKDOWN
Until next time Gorgeous, BB www.beverlybuttercup.com
Have a Happy and safe Mardi Gras!
