Saturday night I went to a bacon-themed birthday party at Julius, NYC’s oldest gay bar, which has mysteriously become a hip place to be seen lately. Immediately upon our arrival, bacon-laden cupcakes were thrust into our hands (although the vegan leatherboys’ bacon treats were made out of marzipan.) On the rear wall of the bar a slideshow depicted friends of the birthday boy doing various funny/creepy/illegal things with bacon. Our people!
Anyway…the highlight of the night was running into budding gay pop star Matt Alber, who’d missed his flight home to LA and was being toured around West Village bars. (This slighty murky shot was taken with Matt’s iPhone, so you can’t really tell he’s holding a JMG magnet.) A full Matt Alber concert is in the works for NYC very soon and I’ll get y’all the deets as soon as it’s finalized.
