Giving bar and club merch for Christmas presents is a pretty inspired idea if we do say so ourselves! You’re supporting local busines and you’re getting a little piece of history too! While our earlier post provided websites, we strongly recommend visiting the venues mentioned, particularly two of our very faves: Jumbo’s Clown Room and The Roxy . We were at both just the other night, and the sexy peformers inspired the return of our feature, Miss-Thing of the Week.
At Jumbo’s, one of our favorites, chef by day/pole-pro by night Emma C., celebrated her birthday with an Austin Powers-themed 60′s dress up bash. Other than the dancers themselves –and our BFF bartender Michelle — no one was really dressed up except us, though the dancers’ retro-burlesque costume changes made up for it!
Hot tip: if you’re ever lucky enough to hit the bikini bar when it’s one of the dancers’ birthdays, you will almost always get an extra sweet treat: cake and cheesecake on stage (b-day babes get group lapdances by all the girls). Happy Birthday to E, who wins the “Miss-Thing” title for these hot photos she let us take that night. Yeah baby!
The Roxy continues to showcase some of the best music on the Strip and Semi-Precious Weapons’ ”Empire” events on the main stage and at On The Roxx upstairs definitely top the list lately. The band — best known for the being Lady Gaga‘s opening act and longtime pals via the NY club scene — showcased their brand new (dancier) music last week for a sold-out crowd. As usual, singer Justin Tranter rocked his sexy sox off. Check ‘em out at the Roxy on New Year’s Eve. First pic below is from last week’s show, the other three are some alternate shots from one of the previous Empire parties we covered. Justin has really heated up LA since he and the band moved here to record, and recognizing his androgynous appeal with a “Miss — er Mr.– Thing” tag is a long time coming here on LA Slush. Bieber schmieber!
