Introducing 4Play Fridays in NYC
As I first told you Sunday night/ Monday morning, a hot new weekly event is brewing in New York. The Friday night gay scene is about to come alive for summer!
I have confirmed with the owners of Rush at 16th and 6th in the heart of New Yorkest gayest neighborhood -- Chelsea that Alan Picus, Chris Ryan and yours truly will be teaming up with DJ Steve Sidewalk to bring you "4Play Fridays".
This new weekly party will be so hot that it might take you all weekend to recover. Alan Picus will bring his massive go-go squad, Steve Sidewalk will bring the beats while Chris Ryan and I will be packing the place with Gay Socialites and giving everyone something to talk about! I am also told there will be some others involved, and so far I have heard DJ Adam, John Marto and many other names being tossed around. This event is guaranteed to be a colossal gay nightclub explosion that will really heat up this summer!
Alan Picus is, of course, best known for his "Campus Thursday" party at Splash, founding "Heaven Saturdays" and co-founding the new "Avalon Saturdays" at the historical church that went down in history as Limelight.
Steve Sidewalk dates all the way back to "Kurfew" at the Tunnel, and currently spear heads "Hot Mess Sundays" at Porky's and Wednesdays at Feathers in New Jersey. He was also the longest running DJ at Heaven, and Sidewalk has now established residency at Rush.
Chris Ryan is known for promoting several hot parties including "Campus Thursdays," "Rush Saturdays," "Avalon Saturdays," "Bank @ Element," and "Hot Mess" at Porky's.
The GaySocialites and myself also have an extensive nightclub resume ourselves. SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION ALERT: I hosted and managed "Kurfew" at Twirl, hosted "Heaven Saturdays," and now I am hosting "Rush Saturdays." The GaySocialites credits include Wednesdays at "49 Grove" (last summers hot weekly event), "the Closet" at Porky's, "Hot Mess" at Porky's and more!
The new owners of the space at 579 Sixth Avenue are doing more than their share too! Heaven had definitely run its course, and this space needed a beath of fresh air and more than a few coats of paint. If you haven't been back to check out it, then "4Play Fridays" will be an awesome opportunity! They have completely remodeled the first and second floors, and the third floor is in the works. Remember the days when we packed all three floors and acted like insane kids? Well now, we can all return and pack all three floors in a more matured space while getting the posh treatment we have always deserved.
In short, this combination knows how to throw a damn good party! If you're in NYC, you're invited!
To celebrate the new owners, new name and to toast new memories at Rush, "4Play Fridays" opening week will also be the GRAND OPENING of the ALL NEW Rush. The date is set for Friday, May 11.
