VLADA is New and Improved

 Hello New York!

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share with you the many excited things coming up at Vlada Lounge, but first let me thank you for being a loyal customer for the last 6 years and making Vlada the best vodka bar in NYC (New York Magazine, Best Of New York issue). I believe you will be excited to learn what our little Russian elves have been up to and the ways in which Vlada is expanding for the new 2012/2013 season.

 

Much like Lindsay Lohan (girl, did you see her on SNL?!) we have given Vlada a face lift: classy new furniture, a fantastic staff comprised of some of the sexiest, smartest, and talented men in New York, and added new flavors to our extensive, home-made, organic, infused vodka menu. All in all, I’d say we pulled it off better than she did. To continue with the Russian theme, we have made some delicious additions to our food menu. Be sure to try some of my favorites: Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Kiev, Siberian Pelmeni, Poached Salmon, Blini with Caviar, and several Traditional Russian Salads created by the award winning, original chef from the Russian Samovar. Check out photos of the new menu here.


 

As owner of the only Authentic Russian Gay Bar outside of Moscow, equality for the gay community has always been my highest priority. Minutes after the gay marriage law passed in New York I became an Ordained Minister so I could marry same sex couples at our beautiful and elegant upstairs event space. We’ve had many successful and beautiful ceremonies in 2011 and I anticipate many more to come! Please email vlada@ministervlada.com if you or someone you know is looking to tie the knot in a memorable way. We have also expanded into highend catering, so we are able to fulfill any and all requests for parties of any size. Please email vlada@vvscatering.com for all catering inquiries.

 

You can also take advantage of our all new upstairs for private events of all shapes and sizes! From fundraisers to birthday parties to Russian language classes, our upstairs is ideal for your party. The space comes with its own private floor, ipod connection and CD players, projector, piano, available microphones, artwork from community artists, and much more! Email billy@vladaloungeny.com or ernie@vladaloungeny.com to set up your event today. Centrally located at 331 West 51st street (Between 8th and 9th avenue), we’re a short walk from the 1, 2, 3, A, C, E, N, Q, and R trains, and close enough to have a drink at 7:45 PM and still make the entr’acte at Wicked.

 

For a limited time we are offering a 20% discount on our select services to make your experience even more memorable. Call Billy, Ernie, or Vlada Von Shats at 212-974-8030 and let’s have a meaningful date (we like to cuddle).

 

Peace & Love,

Vlada Von Shats

David Drake – My Tawny Valentine

David Drake is  playwright, stage director, actor and author. He is  probably best known as the author and original performer of The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me, for which he received a Village Voice Obie Award, a 1994 Drama-Logue Award for “Outstanding Solo Performance.” – But he has done so many things over the span of his career.  – That sexy vision of him, up onstage, shirtless with a leather jacket,  is burned in mind forever!

Now, David, as his alter ego “Tawny Heatherton,” is bringing his new show, “My Tawny Valentine”
to NYC’s Laurie Beechman Theatre. This show marks the unheralded return
of Tawny Heatherton, a lovably eccentric showbiz survivor and “one hit
wonder” of the disco zeitgeist of the early 1980s. Tawny brings her
singular blonde-swept brand of sunny, funny optimism while recalling
stories of wandering the globe performing her disco “hit,” her
headline-grabbing turn as the unwitting “Pyro Girl of Long Island,” her
short-lived stint as a “Hee-Haw Honey,” and reuniting with her long-lost
aunt Joey Heatherton at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino.

    

“My Tawny Valentine” plays Feb 17, 24, & March 2 at 7:30pm at the Laurie Beechman Theater (407 West 42nd Street, between 9th & 10th Avenue).

Tickets are $20 plus a $15 food/drink minimum and can be purchased by calling 212-352-3101 or visit SpinCycleNYC.com..

Our dear friend Adam, from the popular site, Call Me Adam,  caught up with David and interviewed him this week!

Breaking Glass Pictures Celebrates the ‘Holi-gays’ With a Huge Discount on our LGBT Catalog

WHO DOESN’T LOVE  A  GREAT DEAL?!

For over two years, Breaking Glass Pictures and their Queer Culture Cinema label have provided the public with provocative and erotic LGBT titles.  To celebrate their success in the 2011 holiday season, they are offering an exclusive discount on our already discounted prices from their official store.   NEAR WHOLESALE  PRICING! PERFECT for gift giving!!

To get $6.00 off the already discounted price on these and the rest of their  titles, go to shop.breakingglasspictures.com and enter “BESTGAYNY” during check out.

Among some exciting  LGBT   titles are:

An Englishman in New York: Giving possibly the best performance of his distinguished career, two-time Academy Award nominee John Hurt (Midnight Express, The Elephant Man) gives a bravura portrayal of British gay icon Quentin Crisp in An Englishman in New York, an exhilarating, funny and inspiring story focusing on Crisps emigration to the United States the final years of his life.
After the film version of his autobiography The Naked Civil Servant is released to great acclaim, author, artist and raconteur Crisp moves to New York City to star in a one-man off-Broadway show. What was supposed to be a month turns into decades as Crisp regales and captivates New York audiences with his wit and candor on a lifetime lived as an outsider. The film traces his theatrical successes, many friendships and controversies but always living life on his own terms. –  Features a cameo by the ever adorable NICK ADAMS!!

Big Gay Musical: The film tells the tale of Paul (Daniel Robinson) and Eddie (Joey Dudding), two theater actors who have just commenced working together on their new Off-Broadway musical, a show that oddly mimics their own personal lives. Through glittery, yet comical musical numbers with provocatively dressed tap dancing angels, a retelling of Genesis, tele-evangelists, a camp that attempts to convert gay kids to straight, and numerous showtunes, both characters go through life-changing experiences.

Go Go Crazy: Welcome to Go Go Crazy: a contest where talent and ambition take a backseat to speedos and desperation. Five shameless contestants (all Broadway performers, including Mr. Broadway 2011 Michael Cusumano) with little to gain and nothing to lose take to the stage in a gay nightclub for a chance to achieve go go boy glory and a $1000 cash prize.(Hosted by Hedda Lettuce!)  On the judging panel are a burned out porn star (NY-based porn star Jake Steel), a Celine Dion “embodier,” and the raunchy nightclub owner – all of whom threaten to steal the spotlight from the fame-hungry, back-stabbing contestants.

Lots more gay titles to choose from as well!
To get $6.00 off the already discounted price on these and the rest of
their  titles, go to shop.breakingglasspictures.com and enter

Wedding Planner in New York Helps You Find the Perfect Wedding Location

 


SO YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED?! 

Weddings are supposed to be a once in a lifetime experience.


You should be focusing on the love you have found and are going to be sharing forever.

You should be thinking about the bond you will be forming and the commitment you will be making.  It should be joyous and exciting.  And the planning of your wedding should be done with the same enthusiasm.


You don’t need to feel overwhelmed by the endless details and decisions that will need to be made. Who will do your invitations?   Where will you find your tuxedos? What about the Cake?
Will there be food served?


AND THE BIG QUESTION….Where to have it? Location, Location, Location! How big? How Small? What venue really expresses who you are as a couple?

And ALL OF THE PHONE CALLS to vendors gathering information and prices!!




This is just a small sampling of the many details that you have to think about. Small soiree?  or a big fancy affair?

Now take a deep breath! I have 2 words for you…Successful Affairs. Let them do the work for you – and the service is free.

Yes, FREE!


We  educate clients from start to finish, and walk them through the process,” says owner Lisa Rice.”You will feel at ease and confident that your big day will be your best day!”

Successful Affairs specializes in locating the perfect venue for you.
Whether your needs require a hotel, club, restaurant, penthouse or a huge open loft space, or intimate elegant spaces,  I  guide clients through this ever changing city to the exciting options that New York has to offer!”
says Lisa.


When I started in the event planning industry in 1988 it was just blossoming, and to say the least…it has come a long way baby!  And there is most certainly something to be said about experience.  What  really is necessary for pulling off the perfect affair comes down to 5 things: motivation, common sense, organization, negotiation and a great out going personality.


All attributes that  I excel in! I have done the homework, so you don’t have to. My relationships with the many vendors will save you time and money – and best of all, my service is free to clients.”


 



 What better city than Manhattan to explore for your event?  “Each and every day I am out and about researching the newest and most exciting of venues,” explained Lisa.   “My portfolio includes the old traditional standards as well as the unusual and unique.

We will save clients  – Time, money and their sanity!

1.Time: Our photo portfolios of Manhattan hotels, clubs, restaurants, landmarks, and little-known private event locations are comprehensive. In less than an hour they will take a virtual tour of all locations which could work for your event. In one meeting they will view hundreds of venues without ever leaving their office — or mine.


2.Money: Successful Affairs brings clients to these venues on a continual basis, which gives us an advantage in our negotiations to meet their budget restrictions. Allowing Successful Affairs to represent clients in vendor negotiations gives them  a valuable edge.

3.Sanity: Clients  may be feeling overwhelmed with the amount of details involved in planning their  upcoming event. 

Successful Affairs has organized thousands of events since 1988. We know all the secrets to making an event run smoothly.

When you’re in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, all you want to do is take in the view. There are spaces that can offer breathtaking skylines, unique perspectives and much more.


Sometimes you just need to be different, and New York certainly has it’s share of unique spaces. Make your event stand out and have people remember it. Our portfolio of properties I work with, can offer something for everyone – and every budget.

New Yorks Broadway FLEA MARKET & AUCTION Sept. 25


Sunday, September 25, 10 am – 7 pm
Times Square & West 44th Street, NYC

Broadway dreams can come true as you find showbiz treasures, meet the stars and bid on once-in-a-lifetime items and experiences at the 25th Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction.


Make your plans now to spend Sunday, September 25 with Broadway Cares and thousands of other theatre fans in Times Square and along West 44th Street for those one-of-a-kind keepsakes. This not-to-be-missed event for any serious Broadway theatergoer is free and open to the public and has been called one of the “Best Once-a-Year Markets” in New York City.


From photos with your favorite Broadway star to buying that lost cast recording, signed show posters and Playbills, rare costume sketches or special gift for a theatre-lover you can’t find anywhere – this year’s Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction promises to offer something for everyone.


Autograph Table & Photo Booth | Grand Auction Pre-Bids


New for 2011 are special “flash auctions” which feature instant experiences with Broadway stars live on the Grand Auction stage, including:
• Spamalot karaoke with Tony Award-nominated Spamalot star Christopher Sieber
• An on-the-spot appearance in the hit Web series “Side by Side by Susan Blackwell
• A coaching session with Chicago star Kara DioGuardi, former American Idol judge and head judge on Bravo’s Platinum Hit
• Your favorites tunes sung especially for you by Rent star Anthony Rapp and Wicked star Julia Murney
• Your outgoing voice mail message recorded in the voice of the diva of your choice by singer and comedian Christine Pedi, known for her spot-on impersonations.


It’s a flea market like no other!



 Among the shows signed up for tables are The Addams Family, Anything Goes, The Book of Mormon, Follies, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Mary Poppins, The Phantom of the Opera, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Rock of Ages, Sister Act, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Wicked and Cirque Du Soleil’s Zarkana, as well as Actors’ Equity Association, The Actors Fund, Broadway Impact, The Broadway League, Givenik, Paper Mill Playhouse, Seth’s Broadway Chatterbox and United Scenic Artists.


You also can place early bids now on dozens of unique theater items and experiences that will be offered throughout the day in the silent auction and in the day’s exciting finale, the live auction. Online pre-bidding ends at 12 pm ET on Saturday, September 24.


For the first time ever, the Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction will encompass all of 44th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, and will stretch across Broadway into Times Square, filling the wide pedestrian plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets..


“We look forward to turning this year’s construction challenge into a golden, sun-drenched opportunity to expand into Times Square’s wonderful pedestrian plazas,” BC/EFA executive director Tom Viola said. “Filling Broadway between 43rd and 44th Streets, there will be booths overflowing with theatrical memorabilia and at the end of the afternoon the Grand Auction. I hope you will take the few steps across Seventh Avenue with us, as you enjoy the high energy and activity that every year stretches down 44th Street to Eighth Avenue. Whatever the terrain, the best of Broadway shows up for the Broadway Flea Market. I hope you will too!”


Dozens of tables from Broadway’s most popular shows will set up shop for what Time Out New York calls one of the “Best Once-a-Year Markets” in New York City. Fans can buy that lost cast recording, signed show posters and Playbills, rare costume sketches, props and special gifts theatre-lovers can’t find anywhere else.


Silent auction lots offered every half-hour will give way to the live Grand Auction at the end of the day featuring a collection of unique items and experiences that will offer something for everyone.


One of the most popular sites at Broadway’s “one-day sale” is the Celebrity Autograph Table at which your favorite stars from Broadway and Off-Broadway sign autographs and pose for photos in exchange for donations to BC/EFA.



Some of the celebrities this year willing to sign autographs for a $25 donation – or pose for a photo for $10 – are Adam Godley, Nick Adams, Patina Miller, Sutton Foster, Tony Sheldon, Rory O’Malley, Alice Ripley, Annaleigh Ashford, Josh Gad, Joyce DeWitt, Nikki M. James, Patrick Page, Victoria Clark, Roger Rees, Adam Pascal, Montego Glover, Beth Leavel and Charles Busch. (All appearances subject to change.)


Last year, some of the big prizes at the grand auction included a chance to appear in “Wicked” that sold for a whopping $16,500 and a tank top worn by Daniel Craig in “A Steady Rain” and signed by Craig and co-star Hugh Jackman that fetched $6,500.


The auction and market, which cost about $60,000 to produce, plus three other Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS events – the Easter Bonnet Competition, Gypsy of the Year and Broadway Bares – helped the group last year award some $10 million in grants to The Actors Fund and to more than 400 AIDS and family service organizations.


BID  RIGHT NOW  LIVE ONLINE – 
all kinds of cool things – like 



DRINK UP WITH THE “GIRLS” OF PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT

SILENCE! The Musical..Special Price



SILENCE! The Musical
is the hilarious unauthorized parody of The Silence of the Lambs.  In the Academy Award-winning film, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill.


And now, at last, this delicate symphony of suspense has been turned on its ear and retold in the only way it can be – as a musical. A singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrates the action; Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin; and even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he’d like to lead someday outside the prison walls.
