Here’s the blow-by-blow of the evening …(Somewhat more coherent coverage on The Sword, and Fleshbot.)
Roma & Phil St John are early arrivals.
Tables set …
Empty red carpet
Roma & friend await hordes
(l-to-r) Johnathan Vargas, Jason Ridge, Damien Crosse arrive.
Derek & Romaine arrive … but don’t punch Mike in the face (sadly.)
Lou Cass, who murdered me in “Dare”

Chi Chi opens the show, reading Lady Bunny in that way drag queens love to dog each other
Lady Bunny makes a bunch of fart jokes.
