Salsa and Streaking

Salsa (the dancing kind) and streaking (the naked kind) do not normally go together. Well, they might for you and I am not one to judge, so go on with your bad self! But for most the two do not have a lot in common. Once thing they most certainly have in common is that they both took place at After Dark Lounge in the past week! There is never, ever a dull moment at After Dark!

cinco-de-mayoFirst….the salsa! Thursday May 5th marked the second annual After Dark Lounge Cinco de Mayo party! Both the live performances and the outfits were muy caliente! The margaritas were flowing,  and the tacos and mustachioed women were plentiful! Maracas and booties were Cinoing as best they could! I could go on and on but I don’t have to because the photographer was paying attention that night! Enjoy!

we-are-going-streakingNow for the streaking! Sometimes things happen at After Dark lounge that you really have to see to believe. Lucky for all of you who might have missed it, I was paying very close attention to the situation and managed to catch a lot of the conversation and the actual act of streaking! For this all to make sense I need to set the scene. One of the highly talented musicians that plays at After Dark Lounge was on the stage wowing the audience with his mad skills. Let’s call him Virtual Star, or VS for short. As he was playing two of the audience members were plotting, We will call them Superfan, or S for short and The Instigator, or TI. I happen to have a copy of the transcript of said plotting. (Just for the sake of whatever, I have the permission of all parties that were involved to use the conversation and the pictures that will follow.)

S: Are you drunk enough to be coaxed into taking off all your clothes and streaking on the stage behind VS?
TI: lol
S: $500L says you won’t do it…..
TI: ummm
S: $700L
S: You have to streak behind him.
TI: lol
TI: you are bad
S: can you hide behind the red curtain, take off all your clothes and then sneak to the other curtain?
S: lol
S: $800L
S: do it for the venue
S: the venue needs your support
TI: I am the venue. lol
S: exactly. You can do anything! You are all-powerful! Dooo iiittt!!!
TI: lol
TI: you do it!
TI: I will pay you $800 to do it
S: $900L I’m not drunk
TI: lol
S: I’ll get fired
TI:pours you a drink
TI: from who?
TI: I don’t think so
S: can you see me?
S: ignore the ball of hair in the curtain

So…as you can see what started off as a dare from Superfan to The Instigator ended up backfiring completely! Everyone has their price though. And so Superfan crept behind the curtain and disrobed. Sadly, I did not manage to catch any pictures of this. Once she was ready to take on that bet she reached to the audience for a bit of support. I also have a copy of the transcript from the local chat that took place

S: If someone dares you to do something, should you do it?
S: What if alcohol and money are involved?
Random Audience Member1: then you MUST, S hehehe
S: That’s what I was afraid of
………………
S: VS is setting the mood
AND THE STREAKING COMMENCES
Tyche Szondi: Bwahahahahahaha!
Random Audience Member1: why is S dancing nakie?
Random Audience Member 2: Lost a bet? lol
TI: cuz I paid her  ㋡
Random Audience Member 3: must have been that dare
S: this is that dare you insisted I do
TI: It was me or her
Musician about to take the stage: thought she was still rezzing
And now for the pictures, As one might assume, there is nudity in these pictures. There is no more nudity allowed on the blog as there is at After Dark Lounge, These pictures have been modified somewhat to obscure the identity of those involved and to cover all of the bits and pieces! streaking4 streaking3 streaking2 Streaking1 And now for the pièce de résistance……a photo that has possibly the breast, I mean best photoshopping skills applied to it that this blog has ever seen. This photo was sent courtesy of Superfan’s handler.

It just goes to show that you never know what might be going on at After Dark Lounge!

 

Mix Masters

When you hear the term “mix masters” a lot of things can come to mind.

Dj mixes the track

 

There is the musical mix master.

 

 

 

Handmixer

 

The kitchen mix master.

 

 

 

 

 

bartender

 

 

The alcohol mix master. (Also know as the medicinal mix master.)

 

 

But there is another mix master that may not come to mind when you hear the term. That mix master, or should I say mistress, is our own Meegan Danitz. Running a live music venue is SL takes a fine mix of close to a million different things. Seriously, I counted….not really, but still! Meegan is part therapist, part juggler, part diplomat, part hard ass and part softie all rolled into a package that is 100% lady plus a large set of cojones.

mixtress

As the mix mistress, no, the mixtress of After Dark Lounge Meegan sometimes does exactly what the title says and mixes things up. There is some mixin’ happening over at After Dark Lounge! You may notice in the coming weeks that the lineups you have come to know and love are looking a little different. How? I am not going to tell you that! You will just have to come and see for yourself, but I will tell you that it is going to be awesome! There will be some new musicians gracing the stage, but don’t worry, your favorites will still be making appearances as well!

cinco-de-mayo

One last little nugget. Don’t forget After Dark Lounge’s Cinco de Mayo party is tomorrow 5/5! The Cincoing of the Mayo starts at 7pm and carries on to 11pm! Prizes for best dressed in theme! More details here!

May we?

The month of May is encroaching upon us. May brings many things with it, and with those things come many a “humorous” meme. Such as:

gonnabemay

 

 

 

May First

 

 

 

may4th

 

 

May Fourth

 

 

 

 

Both of the dates above will have your Facebook feeds crammed so full of memes you will wonder if anyone is doing anything on that date other than looking for “funny” memes. Just so you know, chances are they are not.

There are also several legitimate holidays that take place in May. The day for honoring your mother, also known as “Mother’s Day” is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. While Mother’s Day is a legitimate holiday, it also inspires some amusing memes and I just feel like I have to share this one:

mothers dayMemorial Day is also celebrated in May, on the last May of the month. Memorial Day is the day that we honor the men and women who have died while serving in the United States military. You thought it was just the day public pools opened and great sales were held? Sorry Charlie, but you just learned something.

I know you are asking yourself “Self, what the hell does all of this have to do with After Dark Lounge and why does Tyche seem to be giving us a run down of holidays?”. You might have noticed that there is a holiday missing from the listing above. A very special day that has inspired me to write a little ditty…..not so much write as butcher a classic holiday song for your enjoyment!

Just hear those maracas shakin,
and booties quaking too
Come on, it’s lovely weather
For a margarita together with you
Outside the sun is shinin’
And friends are calling “Ándale arriba”,
Come on, it’s lovely weather
For mucho tequila together with you.
Drink ’em up, drink ’em up, drink ’em up
Let’s go, Drink faster not slow
We’re drinking at a sweet live music show
Drink ’em up, drink ’em up, drink ’em up
It’s grand, two drinks in my hand
We’re singing along with a song
In a tequila hazed drunken land

Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching! Get your sombreros and maracas ready because we are planning a party! Thursday May 5th we will be pouring the tequila and celebrating a Mexican holiday as only silly Americans can! (For those of you that were enjoying the history lesson I will lay a bit more on you. Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. Newp. You have done been told wrong, It is a celebration of the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.)
Join us on May 5th starting at 7pm when Sassy Nitely takes the stage and kicks off the party! Plan on staying with us for the next 4 hours as we welcome Stephanniyah Sinatra, FrankLee Anatra and Grif Bamaisin! Wear your best “Mexican” wear! There will be a 500$L prize each hour for the best dressed in the theme! We will provide the tequila, piñata, and the amazing tunes, you just bring your wonderful selves!

Cinco de After Darko!

I managed to snap a few pics of After Dark Lounge’s Cinco de Mayo celebration. The margaritas were flowing, the music was jamming and the señors and señoritas were shaking it as best they can! Thank you to everyone who came out to help us celebrate!
