On Monday, June 27th Ken, Lloyd and the entire management and staff of Scandals and The Stable produced a benefit at the Stable for one of their own, Rambo. It was extremely obvious how much Rambo is loved in this community because the Stable was jam packed for hours. It literally brought tears to my eyes to see how the community came together. In the end $5,390 was raised. I hope Rambo is able to get well real soon and I for one am looking forward to seeing him behind the bar once again! On Wednesday was the monthly Mack Mixer in Palm Beach, this month being held at Luigi’s Italian restaurant on one of my favorite streets in Palm Beach, Clematis.
Wednesday night was the 18th anniversary of Twist and as it is every year it was packed in every room. Some of the prestigious community members I saw were Commissioner Michael Gongora, Dale Stine, Karl Zeblotny (original owner of the Wire), Noel Leon, Bill Halquist, Bill Kelly, The group form SoBAP, Mark Haines, Steve Routhaus, Stephen R. Lang, many member from Hotspots and Genre Latino Staff, Adora and hubby Teddy, The staff of Creative Male, Jessie from the Palace and hundreds of other well wishers. The entire staff of Hotspots Magazine would like to wish Joel, Richard and the entire staff and management of Twist a very happy anniversary with many more to come!
