Big Top @ Beaux – Aug. 31, 2014

Heklina and Joshua J at Big Top, now weekly at Beaux in San Francisco.

August 31, 2014 On August 31, Joshua J’s party Big Top was reincarnated once again, this time at Beaux. Once upon a time, Big Top was a party that Joshua J threw at the Transfer on the Sunday of three-day holiday weekends. When the Transfer became the Bar on Church, Big Top was eventually revived as a monthly party at Club 8 before that bar closed to make way for Raven. For a time it was held at Rebel before that bar became a special events venue. Now it’s back at Beaux, the Castro’s newest gay bar, and it’s coming back … Continue reading

Hot Mess – March 22, 2008

Two guys wrestling in lube at a Gus Presents party at The Stud. Loser has his underwear ripped off, leaving him totally naked.

March 22, 2008 This week’s Hot Mess — Gus Presents‘ weekly party that he used to have at The Stud – once again had lube wrestling at midnight. Two cute young guys stripped down to their underwear and were greased up in baby oil before wrestling each other in a wading pool on top of a covered pool table. Since the winner is the one who manages to rip off his opponents’ underwear, we’re always ensured to get at least a little bit of nudity. Sometimes the losers manage to cover up their bits, but this time the time we do get … Continue reading

Booty Call – March 19, 2008

The photographer in action at Booty Call Wednesdays' photo booth at what was then the Bar on Castro.

March 19, 2008 Booty Call Wednesdays has a lot of fun elements. Rotating guest DJs. Go-go dancers that included both hot guys as well as drag queens or costumed characters — this week it was a dancing chicken. And a photo booth in the back room with a backdrop that changes every week. The party started at the Bar on Castro. When new owners took over and changed it to QBar, the party stayed on and is still going strong today. [Show slideshow]
