707 Bayard, 205 Hickman, 316 Hickman, 211 Lake and 10 Terrace were just a fraction of the group-houses seen wearing wild hats during 19 Terrace's Hat Party. If there was a will, party-goers found a way to wear just about anything on their heads. Some of the most memorable hat fashions were engineered and modeled by Kevin Litschgi (who wore a battery-operated blender complete with ice and margarita mix), Miss Freida Fry a.k.a. Cliff Lassahn (who was the main boardwalk attraction for people and seagulls alike as he donned a bucket of Thrasher French Fries), and Grant Oines and 68 Park (who created eye-popping Jiffy Pop popcorn caps that were bursting with flavor). Other hatware was provided by The Baby Bonnet Boys (who cried "Your crib or mine?"), and the twelve bitchy-witchy members of The Scarborough Witch Project. In retrospect, there's just one thing to say to everyone who participated: "Hats off!"
Bob Kabel and Mike Ferens found some fast action at their I Love Lucy party. Working beneath the conveyor's belt, the 723 Spring Lake duo found themselves rapidly stuffing their mouths with large candy. Obviously, Bob and Mike bit off way more than they could chew. Although help came quickly, the two men preferred to swallow their mouthfuls instead of letting any hit the floor.
It was a breeze to eat, drink and be merry at 224 Country Club's Annual Sea Breeze party. Rodney Cook and Charlie Browne were exquisite hosts. They provided plenty of food, beverage, and warm hospitality to over 300 friends. The scary part is, all 300 people were REALLY friends. Hasn't anyone told them that Rehoboth parties are about inviting 300 people you DON'T know and having them talk bad about you once they leave?
312 Bayard's Cocktails and Cockrings party was forced indoors when a rainstorm struck Rehoboth. Once inside, party-goers discovered that the basement had been transformed into a dark dungeon with winding walls. It didn't take long for the Green Lantern-inspired soiree to evolve into a Crew Club-like after-hours hot spot. Numerous Rehoboth socialites visited the Bayard basement. Some found just what they were looking for in the darkness, while others found just what they weren't looking fortheir boyfriends. At one point, the lights turned on so that dungeon master, Jeff Sitzlar, could inspect a complaint he received about flooding in one of the basement corners. He soon discovered that the substance flooding the basement floor wasn't water at all, and that the storm that created the mess certainly wasn't coming from outside.
The rain was reason enough to cancel Squirt Gun Party 5
at 3 Country Club, but had the party taken place, squirt gun-happy soldiers would have been given a mission to defeat
the 2KY Menacea sinster force that has been stealing Rehoboth's lube supply. A battle would have ensued over
the lube and a lot of gun cocking and squirting would have occurred. Unfortunately, too many men in Rehoboth shoot blanks and the 2KY Menace would have easily slipped in
Watching Nick at Nite will never be the same thanks to
the boys of 1015 Fifth Street and their recent "Nick at Nite" party. The house that gave us last summer's "Saving Ryan's Privates" transformed their backyard into a museum of
memorabilia from shows such as The Brady Bunch, The Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched, Leave it to Beaver and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Objects on exhibit included Alice's vibrator, Esmerelda's diaphragm, Eddie Haskel's penis enlarger, Darren Steven's cockring, and a life-size blow-up doll that belonged to Carol Brady (because her GAY husband never put out). Housemates Rob Warren, Mark Kimball and Paul Archer said they can prove the authenticity of each item. Stop by their house next weekend when they unveil Rob and Laura's eatable underwear built for two!
This weekend, join Gary Fisher, Jeff Heebner, and Darin Johnson at 3 Brigantine Court on Saturday from 9 p.m. to midnight for their "New Years Eve: Millenium" party. Consider this event a rehearsal for the real thing, and be on the look-out for that darn Y2K crab when you stroke at midnight. Futuristic clothing is optional, but please don't go dressed as clonesthere are too many already out there.
Next Saturday, September 4th, stop by 117 Atlantic from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. for the "Pink Flamingos in the Pool" party. Be prepared, however, to see more pink butts than flamingos. Bathing suits not required!
After swimming, dry off at 13A Colonial Oaks (off Route 1) where you'll have a chance to meet Psycho Norman Bates at "The Bates Motel" party. Back-stabbing starts 9 p.m. with Thom Harris as "Mother."
Next Sunday afternoon, September 5th, come out of the ocean to watch the 11th Annual Drag Volleyball tournament on Poodle Beach with MC Chris Riss. Let's count the number of times Chris gets down on his knees whenever he hears the word "service!"
On the north side of Poodle, 49 Olive's Kevin McDuffie usually organizes the fabulous Bamboo Brunch. It's always for a good cause, so be sure to give a donation if the event takes place.
After the beach, 2 Blackstone is sending us "Back to School." Put on your favorite smock. Body painting class is from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Now a word about SUNDANCE. Aside from all the parties, make time for the SUNDANCE silent and live auctions on Saturday, September 4th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Rehoboth convention center. With food, an open bar, and lots of great items, it's the place to be on Saturday night. And, you definitely won't want to miss the SUNDANCE main dance event on Sunday, September 5th from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m., also at the convention center. Music is by DJ Mark Thomas. Tickets are available for both events at Lambda Rising and CAMP Rehoboth. Please support this wonderful weekend-long fundraiser to benefit SCAC and CAMP.
