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

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).

Fruitcake and Gaycation queer dance off

The competing club nights Gaycation at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison) and Fruitcake at Rumpspankers (700 NE Dekum) are both great alternatives for those of us who couldn’t make the trek down to Homo A Gogo.

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

fruitcake-julyDon’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!

The sweet taste of Fruitcake

A daytime view of Rumpspankers

A daytime view of Rumpspankers

Last Friday our Nopo prayers were answered when Fruitcake, a new queer dance night, took over Rumpspankers on Northeast Dekum. And if the packed house and slew of bicycles parked at the door is any indication, a repeat performance is most surely in order.
