Personal cameras are strictly verboten, so for the 11th year noted Gotham photographer Robert Zash will be taking portraits of Black Party attendees in all their leathery glory. Mention JMG for a $5 discount! Since the portrait area is on the lower level, right next to the coat check, I recommend herding your cats over to Robert’s lens as soon as you arrive. While everybody still looks “fresh”, you know. It’s always amusing to observe Robert’s subjects grrring up their best Cruel Daddy Master for the camera.
Also appearing at tomorrow’s party will be frequent JMG commenter and fellow blogger, our own Little David, who will be performing onstage with his Hot Nude Yoga crew. Details are sketchy on how Hot Nude Yoga is being worked into the show, but I’m guessing there will be a lot of Downward Dog. Arf, Daddy! Stop tugging my leash! David’s performance is set to begin sometime around 6:30am.
