Favorite Things: Steel Gym


Our holiday favorite things continues with the place where the GaySocialites will be getting fit this as a part of New Year's resolutions!  You must come see us at Steel Gym!

Ken Hunt, the gentle giant boss man, is one of those trainers who can motivate you and push you at the same time.  I can't promise that you'll be able to perform simple actions the day after training with Ken, but I found that it is possible to function without picking anything up or carrying a bag.

Seriously, I've never felt more comfortable and more motivated to get in great shape!  King Ralphy is bulking up for the Winter Music Festival, Dina Marie is getting trim for her record release and I'm just trying to firm up a little so I don't actually look my age!

This favorite thing is one of our most favorite things.  Check out Steel Gym! A gym membership would also make a good gift for someone you love!

Fun @ the F word.

June 04, 2009



This Friday, It all goes down!, and really EVERYONE is Talking about it! Come see me, Dina, &Piggy and also Nicho and James Lehey who will be celebrating their birthdays.


"To all those wondering about Dina Marie’s Facebook posting regarding HK Lounge, we are still a little confused ourselves about all the goings on. Although it has been removed from Facebook, Dina says she stands by her original post. A representative for HK owner Alex Meskouris says “it was just a late-night argument that got out of hand” but called her allegations baseless. Meskouris added he’d welcome Dina back, but for now it appears the Circus party queen has taken her parties elsewhere. Namely to Rush, where she’s teaming up with BoiParty.blog for Breakout Fridays, a new party she hopes will help Rush diversify its clientele. “We don’t mind if the twinks join the fantasy,” she joked “but they better be glamorous.”


NEW YORK- At the end of her latest on-again-off-again stint at HK Lounge and "Dance Spot", Dina Marie Delicious is joining forces with BoiParty.blog on Friday nights to launch "Breakout", a new party in conjunction with the $5 Fridays promotion at Rush in Manhattan.

The party is titled after Dina Marie's upcoming single, "Breakout," as she hopes to help Rush 'break out' of the twinkie mold and welcome a new identity to Friday nights.

"We don't mind if the twinks join the fantasy, but they better be fabulous," Dina Marie joked.

Also on the rundown are King Ralphy, DJ John Marto and Miss Alixandria.

Dina Marie and King Ralphy may be inheriting the $5 promotions with $5 well drinks, cover and domestic beers; but they promise a whole new attitude with a generous dose of glitz and glamour!

Rush features two dance floors and two fully stocked bars complete with scantily clad go-go boys on top.

Dina Marie's next "Circus" party will also be held at Rush on Friday, June 26th - Gay Pride Weekend.

Rush is located at 579 Sixth Avenue between 16th and 17th streets. There is no cover charge until midnight for guys who are over 21 (if you mention this posting), and it's only $5 after. If you're under 21, it's $10 all night.

**It's also NICHO'S && JAMES LEHEY'S BDAY!!!!**


See you there!! xoxo

Dina Marie vs. HK?


dina_marie_v_hk.jpgAs I return from my very relaxing vacation, I find my two worlds colliding. I am forced to report on a dispute between two important people, both of whom are my friends and clients in different capacities.

There has been a lot said and reported by various bloggers and e-zines regarding a conflict that occurred between Dina Marie Delicious and HK owner Alex Meskouris on Friday night following the Circus party at HK in New York City.

Everyone is talking about Blow Pop

celia%20antm%20and%20king%20ralphy2.jpg billy%20davey%20jerry2.jpgkortnie%20and%20celia%20of%20americas%20next%20topmodel%20and%20king%20ralphy2.jpgC.Maddox%20Jackie%20Birdy%202.jpgblowpop%200102.jpg

HK took on a whole new feel on Saturday night for the launch of Dina Marie Delicious' weekly Blow Pop party. You can actually see this chic lounge transforming into a "Dance Spot", as Dina Marie has named it.

Blow Pop was one well choreographed show from beginning to end. Birdy wore an edible candy wardrobe. Acid Betty carried a jewelry box filled with sweets, and Petey Pig handed out Blow Pop suckers to the crowd.

Dina's parties are that organized chaos that you just have to appreciate. When the DJ played Dynamite, the first single from Dina's upcoming album, she took the stage a performed it impromptu! Half-way through the night, Dina even opened the connecting doors to the loft where another party was taking place and flooded the two crowds together as one. The entire night left you wondering what might happen next.

In addition to the cosmetic changes at HK, Blow Pop drew an eclectic crowd often considered unfamiliar to Hell's Kitchen like the East Village hipsters, West Village queens and Chelsea Boys. Dina Marie brought out everyone from New York's gay nightlife elite to reality stars and D-list celebrities.

The seen list could go on for pages and includes: America's Next Top Model contestants Celia Ammerman and Kortnie Coles (spotted sitting with King Ralphy), James Lehey Jacob Strawn, Herra C, Ronnie Hokanson, Yuhua, Jasen Kaplan, Matt Stetson, James Coppola, Adrian Rowell, DJ Tek Shur, Dj Serg, Anna Rexia, Epiphany and Sherry Vine (both out of drag)... just to name a few.

Dina Marie will take over HK all weekend starting next Friday with her monthly Circus Party. This month theme is "Alice in Wonderland", and each host is coming dressed in character. DJ Nita Aviance, 1half Nelson, Ericka Aviance, and DJ Serge are all on the roster.

Then on Saturday Blow Pop features DJ Serge and Scotty Rox as a part of Petey Pig's Birthday Celebration.

How Many Licks?!


Last Saturday was the last week of the regular "HK Saturdays" party at HK as they make room for Dina Marie Delicious and her Blow Pop party which starts next Saturday!

Finnish pop star Alexandra Alexis impressed the crowd of some of the gay who's who of New York Nightlife including Malik So Chic, Jasen Kaplan, Petey Pig, Yuhua, Zoe Murphy, King Ralphy and gaysocialites.blog's Ronnie Hokanson.

And coming next week: Dina Marie Delicious is taking over HK every Saturday night with her all new Blow Pop party!

Opening week Dina Marie will be joined by co-hosts Jasen Kaplan, Acid Betty, Yuhua, Zoe Murphy, King Ralphy and Jackie "Birdy" as she helps unveil a whole new HK.

Dina Marie has been a pioneer behind the scenes pushing for the expansion of HK, and now her hard work and bitching is paying off!

Even though the name of the establishment will remain HK, Dina Marie says you won't be calling it just a lounge anymore. She's unofficially branded it as the HK Dance Spot. The owners (for whatever reason) don't want us to say much about it there is soon going to be two new rooms. One of which Dina has pinned as the "Blow Pop" lounge, and the other has a dungeon-like, cruisy feel.

It is going to be a big night for HK, and I cant wait!

Its true, The Skinny is OVAH!


Last week the godfather of night life Michael Formika Jones sent out a text message to all promoters and hosts of his weekly party with Mark Nelson, The Skinny:

"Thanks to all of your honest work to make The Skinny a success. For whatever reason, economy, swine flu or just timing this events time is over. I appreciate you all very much! till next time, be safe".

The Skinny was a weekly Thursday party with a very short run. The Skinny survived two New York City Night clubs and had an all star cast of hosts including Amanda Lepore, Joey Israel, Nita Aviance, Cazwell, JC Powers, Celso, Bill Coleman, Dj Kindbud, Epiphany, Ronnie B, Tiana, Acid Betty and myself King Ralphy.

I don't know about you, but ill certainly miss it!
