My Birthday Party!

Well the dust has settled and the photos have been posted. My 43rd birthday (22.8 Martian years) is "in the can"...

The evening consisted of drinks and dinner at Lips, then we went to the Kake party -- then at about midnight we walked two blocks to The Rawhide bar to finish off the night...

On Saturday, KK and I took Dave R. to the Guggenheim to see the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit, then it was off to lunch in Koreatown, a l-o-n-g walk up Broadway from Times Square to Columbus Circle (there was a huge street fair going on). We hopped the (1) train to 96th for a lie-down in Riverside Park while KK had a tennis work-out in the red clay courts.

But wait! There's more! Afterwards, back on the (1) and (7) train to Flushing, NY for juicy dumplings and other Shanghai delights at Nan Shian Dumpling House (which, in my opinion, has the best juicy dumplings I've ever tasted!)

How you eat Shanghai Soup Dumplings:

1. Place dumpling in your soup spoon
2. Bite off the top of the dumpling (or poke with a chopstick.. they can be very hot inside!)
3. Add a little black vinegar and ginger mixture into the hole you created in the dumpling.
4. Carefully Sip the Soup/black vinegar mixture, being careful not to get burned!
5. Now go for the kill! The yummy part is the Crab/Pork meat ball inside the dumpling!
6. Savour every bite...

We then headed back home for a well-deserved rest... On Sunday, we dropped Dave off at the bus station to head back towards Beantown, while KK and I continued on to Queens for the New York Bear Den gathering for August 2009. See photos of recent Bear Den at our website: http://NY-Bear-Den.com/

THE NEW YORK BEAR DEN on 09/09/09!

Coming up Wednesday, 09 September, the NY Bear Den will be the featured charity at Will Clark's Porno Bingo at Pieces Bar, 8 Christopher St, New York, NY. Porno Bingo is a weekly New York gathering that "has raised nearly $70,000 for Manhattan based GLBT non profits". Will Clark World has more information about Porno Bingo and other charity events. For more information about the NY Bear Den at Porno Bingo, please click here! We're still looking for some more volunteers to help sell bingo cards. Of course, EVERYONE is welcome to attend and meet Will Clark and the guest porn star of the week!

Following Porno Bingo, come join us at Lee Chappell's "Drip!" party -- a new pool party that brings out the cuties! There isn't a dry thigh in the house at Drip, Lee Chappell and Shequida's new Wednesday night pool party at the Grace Hotel. DJ JonJon Battles spinning from a land zone. Everyone is waxed, smashed, and splashing around in the pool as if in a gay version of a Busby Berkeley aquacade (minus the jewelled headdresses and synchronized wrist action.)

Drip! starts immediately after Porno Bingo and is at the new Grace RoomMate Hotel, 125 West 45th Street, between Broadway and 6th Ave. The fun goes until 2am!

Happy birthday! I didn't get a livejournal alert so you'll have to tell me when it is so I can put it in my calendar.

Many happy returns of the day!

FYI: My birthday is 29 July 1966.

We celebrated it on the following weekend this year.

Nan Shian is a favorite of mine. You should have waved as you passed my apartment on the 7 train.

Gosh -- the (7) is so long, where shall I wave?

KK and I love Shanghai Soup Dumplings, but just discovered Nan Shian last week, when the place we wanted to go was far to busy... and Flushing Mall (which has SOME good food places) was closed.

There's so much GOOD FOOD in NYC!

I live on 53rd St at Roosevelt Avenue. The 52nd St subway stop ends at my corner.

If food you should want, Sripraphai, at Roosevelt and 65th. Best Thai on the eastern seabord. Really. Even thornyc will come out from Manhattan to eat there.

The site for Drip is a little vague on details, I notice: entry fee? Small issue, but I'm underemployed right now and little things mean a lot.

I've NEVER been assessed an entry fee.

I don't think there is any...

I'll DOUBLE-CHECK this Wednesday.

It will be so much fun to scare the pretty boys by taking off my shirt!

hugs and happy birthday
