Fruitcake returns for one night only humpday extravaganza

As exciting as it may be to have a little pre-gay pizza b-ballin’ in the court across from Portsmouth, I have to go with my nostalgic gut and make an appearance at the Rotture (315 SE 3rd) for Nolita’s much missed Fruitcake. Unfortunately, we lost this party to the open arms and venues of the Bay area, and they love it too. Thankfully, […]

The last Fruitcake ever is tonight

DJ Nolita is leaving us!

We all knew that Fruitcake was struggling when it lost its Northeast Portland venue to the lures of medical marijuana, but the final death throes came when founder DJ Nolita announced she was leaving Portland for the wide open sea of San Fran. Not only will she be missed, but so will the insiders night that quickly became a Nopo favorite. Our only consolation? […]

Beth Ditto helps count down NYE 2010

Just a quick video snippet from one of the many queer New Years parties last night. The last Fruitcake ever was a roaring success and Beth Ditto was on hand to help the homos ring in the new year. Cheers to organizer DJ Nolita for a continuously fabulous soiree and for use of this video.

Portland’s queer New Year

Kelly Moe will perform live at Fruitcake's NYE party

The craziness of New Year’s Eve parties, be they gay or less gay, is well established and usually find me in the safe confines of a cozy NE Portland bungalow. You would think that with this year’s economy that would be especially true. But alas, this year I will be swinging down to the inner SE industrial district to partake […]

Fruitcake on hiatus

A sad message from DJ Nolita:

Dearest dancing queers and allies,

I lament to inform you that Rumpspankers has gotten their liquor license revoked by the OLCC as of today and therefore Fruitcake will be postponed until further notice. We love and honor your support! Needless to say, we’ll be back soon!

Stay tuned, Fruitcake Xxo

Go SPelUNKing and shake your rump this Friday

Get into some tight spaces at SPelUNK Friday the 13th

As usual there is no lack of queer parties for the weekend and this Friday the 13th, so soon after Halloween, should certainly be auspicious. My recommendations are SPelUNK at Red Cap (1035 SW Stark) and Fruitcake at Rumpspankers (700 NE Dekum).

In honor of being scared of (and excited by) the dark, Red Cap intends to plunge its […]

Happy Homo Halloween – parties and events

Saturday Oct 24th

Halloween week starts off right with Blow […]

Fruitcake and Gaycation queer dance off

I hate it when this happens. Portland is so gaymazing that some of the best events must overlap. But still I know these folks all know each other. We couldn’t make one dance night on Saturday? Nevertheless, you should try to make it to at least 1 of these fantastic events.

The competing club nights Gaycation at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison) and Fruitcake at Rumpspankers (700 NE Dekum) are both […]

Don’t forget to Gloss tonight before you enjoy some Fruitcake on Friday

Don’t you hate it when your favorite blog doesn’t update for days and then returns with some lame excuse about personal drama and stress? That should never happen, especially for a queer blog…

Luckily there are many places to drown your sorrows when you haven’t heard from me in days. You could even buy me a drink there!
