Erin Kenney is throwing a dance party fundraiser at Vegas Boulevard to raise money for a group of Connecticut peaceniks who are driving out to Cleveland next weekend for the big anti-war protest rally. They need a bunch of cash so they can get out to Ohio. There's a suggested $5 donation at the door, and prizes for best moves and best dressed. I know its weird maybe to go there tonight even if you were just there last night, but I think it will be really fun and fun for a good cause, at that.
I mean, finally, a party I can wear my peace sign to and not feel out of place.
In other news, I just moved - which blew - and I don't have internet at the moment, so posts will be less frequent for a while until I figure out what the internet's phone number is, have them come over and install it or bestow it or whatever. I imagine wireless internet comes from a magic wand or like, in a spray can.
And FYI, just because I moved doesn't mean that updates on the Lords of Oxford Street will cease to be reported. I'm not giving my key back and I plan on maintaining my title as co-Lord of Oxford Street. I'll be damned if they try to take that away.

We had a very busy night last night. Jamie and I started off the night at a hoe-down hosted by Abbie and Katie in West Hartford. We went dressed as cowpokes and were delighted to find that everyone else at the hoedown dressed for it as well. Its such a relief to show up at theme parties where guests actually go for it. As a result, the party was fun. They played a lot of country and Britney Spears, barbecued chicken and soaked watermelon in vodka. There was a charming little bathtub punch being served as well, alongside Miller High Life and Miller High Life Lite.
Later on we rushed home and changed our clothes for Kevjn Kelly's 21st birthday party at the Nevers' hilltop home in New Britain. The theme was La Dolce Vita, and guests were asked to wear international dress. This request apparently confused a lot of people, because some people looked excellent but others looked like they always do.
Still, the Nevers' is such a great party house, and everybody was being really fun. There was a lot of wine and champagne (which is the new beer btw). There were basement DJs and earlier in the night, a swinging little chamber group I was sad to miss.
Kevjn Kelly is such a dream. Every time he walked into a crowded room, the crowd would burst into applause. He is one of the most beloved people in Hartford. Last night he was in his element and clearly feeling good. Cheers to all of the many bartenders who have served him booze over the past 3 or 4 years at least, suckers.

On Friday night we went to a housewarming party for Kevin Van Aelst and Kim Mikenis in New Haven. They have a beautiful old townhouse somewhere around there. It was a lovely party.
Afterwards, Alice and I went out to some gay bar near the green so that we could dance it out with old friend Adam. The gays aren't that great and neither were the drinks or the DJ, but we had fun anyway.
