Happy Birthday Reknard!

happybirthday1

There are many regulars who we adore at After Dark. What do we do for those we adore? We show them just how much they mean to us and celebrate them and their milestones!

Reknard Goldshark, also knows as LadyGlory’s arm candy, has been a fixture at After Dark since I have been visiting there. Rek has a wonderful sense of humor, a generous soul and is just an all around good guy. It was a pleasure to celebrate his birthday with him and with some of his favorite musicians!

LG and Rek RBD

Stephanniyah Sinatra started off the night. (And because I am none too bright some nights, I completely blanked on taking a picture of her while she was on stage!) Steph is not only one of Rek’s favorite artists, but she also played at the wedding of Rek and LG. Steph had Rek and LG all starry eyed, gooey and flirty. They are my favorite couple in SL and they routinely make me throw up a little in my mouth.

11032673_457418087743694_78702997_oFunkyFreddy Republic played the second hour with special guest Max Kleene. It was very obvious that they were having a hell of a time at the barn and the laughter and good times were infectious!

Fred and Max RBD Fred and Max2 RBD Max RBDThe evening ended with LG giving Rek a VERY special birthday gift and ended up earning herself a little spending money in the process! Sadly, I did not take any pictures of Rek receiving his gift from LG and even if I had, I am sure she would be less than thrilled with me if I posted them here! Instead I will give you this “dramatic reenactment“. Not entirely safe for work, but not the worst I could do either!

Happy Birthday Rek!

Ty’s Choice Awards

 

 

Disclaimer:
This is not mean to belittle the Avi Choice Awards. Like everything else that I write, this is written in the spirit of silliness and fun! RS90s-cup-trophy*DRUMROLL*

Booming announcer voice: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first annual Ty’s Choice Awards! And now…your hostess for the evening, Tyche Szondi!”

Thank you! Thank you! You can all sit now, there is no need for all of that. There will be plenty of time to show your undying love and appreciation for me at the after party!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first annual Ty’s Choice Awards! This is an award show like no other! There are no nominees. There are no losers. Rather than having our regular musicians vying against one another for some silly statuette, I have taken it upon myself to give each of them an award in a category completely tailored just for them! Another way the Ty’s Choice Awards are better than other awards shows is the lack of long winded acceptance speeches. (Unless any of the artists would like to send me an acceptance speech, in which case I will gladly feature it on the website!)

One final thing before we hand out the awards. Unfortunately, Meegan Danitz cannot be with us this evening. As some of you may have witnessed before the show while on the red carpet, Meegan was told by security that if she had one more nip slip she would be banned from the show and not allowed back on the premises until the show was over. Upon hearing this, Meegan untied her wrap dress and walked the rest of the red carpet with her dress hanging open and all of her lady bits showing. At the end of the red carpet she was taken into custody. We wish her the best and look forward to seeing her at the after party!

Now on with the show! Screw the silly jokes between awards, and the music numbers. Let’s give these things out! Now, When you read the list you need to read them in an announcer’s voice. “And the TCA for ________ goes to_____!” Extra points if you read them aloud and get strange looks from people around you!

What a year!

happy-new-year-2015Bring on 2015!!

But first we need to bid a fond adieu to 2014. I know it was on hell of a year for me, and I hope that it was equally eventful or uneventful for you, depending on how you like things! Everyone spends time reflecting on what the past year has brought. I am no different. Well, I guess a bit different. I am pretty dang new to the After Dark family, so I have decided that I will do a bit of a retrospective of the past year at After Dark, but I am going to make up the events prior to when I started to actually pay attention to things! All those months I was just a person hanging in the crowd, listening to good tunes and paying zero attention to anything else, yep, I am making up awesomeness for that time!

2014 started off with a bang, literally. How could anyone forget LG accidentally setting off those fireworks inside the club on New Year’s Eve?!? Poor Reknard still has a scar in an unmentionable place! But if you ask him he might mention it! Thankfully all it took was a little sanding and repainting and all evidence of the minor fire was gone! (Hehe…then I reread that an realized it sounds kind of like there was sanding and repainting of Rek.There was not, but I think it is funny so I am leaving it there!)

Then there was the Valentine’s Day fiasco! I am sure that if Cori had known that the Valentine’s cards she was sending out to everyone contained such lewd images and crude language she would have found some that were far, far more lewd and crude. What is Valentine’s without extreme close-ups of naughty parts and word that would make an experienced madam blush?

Oh my God! And the rabbits! Those damn, damn rabbits! If you were not there, let me just tell you, the term “f**king like bunnies” exists for a reason! Dark had the best intentions, he really did! Ivy had always loved rabbits and it seemed like the perfect thing to give her for Easter. What was not so perfect was failing to make sure they were of the same sex and keeping them in the back of the club before the big reveal! Baby rabbits everywhere! So…much…poop!

reproduce-demotivational-poster-1214399916Summer brought warmer weather to After Dark and less clothing too. Especially for Portia! Poor thing! I do not think she will ever wear a bikini top to After Dark again! Either she was bumped or someone wanted to get a closer look at the goods and pulled her strings, but either way, there she stood, dancing away in the middle of the club, welcoming people kindly, and topless as all get out! It was only a matter of minutes before she noticed, but she sure noticed that not a one of the patrons at After Dark bothered to point it out to her. I suppose they were just enjoying the show! On a related note, that night brought in more tips for After Dark than ever!

It seems the patrons of After Dark enjoy a good side show to accompany the awesome music they are grooving to. I know you all remember the night that Meegan could not keep it in the right box and we all got to see a side of her that might have best been kept private. She wanted him to put what where? Honestly I did not even know that was a thing people did until I read it in local chat that night. Not to mention I still don’t see why that would have required her to stand on her head or where that , but hey, who am I to judge? We have all put the wrong words in the wrong box before, but is sure as shit is funny when someone else does it!

David_Buckingham_Super_Freak_5084_395The fake part of the year was pretty amazing, wasn’t it? The fake part had NOTHING on the real fun that was had at After Dark. So much good music, so many silly moments, just all around goodness! I won’t bore you with things you have already read about in the blog, but I will point you in their general direction!
The later part of this year at After Dark brought us:
a celebration of BonBon’s birthday
a nest build-off of epic proportions
a silly new game
two unique nights of Christmas celebrations
and so so much more!

I want to impart a touch of mush here for a second, and since I am writing this, I CAN! This past year in SL has been the best year I have had in my 7 years here. All of that has to do with the people that I have met this past year, including the phenomenal staff at After Dark and the musicians who grace the stage there. Thank you all for, well, everything!

Ok, enough of that crap!

2014 was indeed a kick ass year at After Dark. We would like to thank all of the artists who have grooved and rocked that stage! Another big thank you goes out to all of the people who come out to support the artists and the venue. It gets said a lot, but it is so true, your support is what keeps live music alive in SL. We have a New Year’s gift at the club, made by our own LadyGlory! I hear tell he will fly you home on New Year’s Eve if you have too much to drink!

This Little guy needs a home!!!  He's sooo cute you can't resist and he's FREE!!!!!  He is a After Dark Original  Exclusive and a one time offer . All you need to do is stop in at After Dark between now and  Jan 4th .
