Back on schedule this week, guys and dishing out my P(r)ick early in the week. You kept me kind of busy today with several orders, but working late to try and stay up on things. A couple of my co-workers here in Bijou World are on vacation this week, which means the rest of us are doubling up.Posted in:
Been so busy working, I haven’t had much time to dig up any good news this week. Besides the extra effort here, I finally got a new cleaning guy for up at Touché. Seems our last cleaning guy at the bar just didn’t like it when I told him he was supposed to actually clean up the place. Since I was following him up and getting the dirt he couldn’t seem see, it was time for a change. So for the last couple of weeks, I have been leaving the party early to come in the mornings to mop and clean.
But we just found and hired a new guy to take on the task of keeping a busy leather bar tidy. He jumped right in and has been doing a great job. Of course I did have to explain a bit about the used condoms to be found. Only six on his first day, not a busy night but one was loaded and drippy as he put it. Some guys have all the luck.
As it is, we usually find all kind of things when we close up the bar, underwear, shirts, caps. In winter time there’s always some gloves (or a glove) and scarves. Sometimes a cell phone, I-pod or glasses. (No more pagers, times have changed) But I do wonder how people can leave the bar and leave behind their pants or shoes. We have found them after closing. The wilder the party, the more gets left to pick up.
I guess we should expect to pick up a lot again this weekend. We have the Chicago Hellfire Club hosting a bar night on Friday at Touché. They bring along lots of fun toys and show folks how to use them. Lots of hardcore action.
Then on Saturday, it’s our Dungeon Master Night where we present a demo on some S&M play. This month we have North Plains LeatherSir for 2012 Chip coming in to demonstrate fire play to the crowd. I’ll keep the fire extinguisher and marshmallows handy.
At least I should have some fun tidbits to share with you next week, along with a few smores. In the meantime, grab my P(r)ick and start a fire of your own.
Stay cool and hot!
Here it is the end of the week, I know I’m late giving you my P(r)ick. But I was just slammed with orders before the 4th of July holiday and ran out of time to get this out to you. Better late than never, they say. And I am packing a little bonus, read on.Posted in:
Hopefully you had a bang up Fourth, seems the hot weather here in Chicago didn’t keep guys out of the Bijou Theater. It’s been pretty busy all week long. But with temps in the 100′s it’s always better to play indoors with the A/C than out in that sun. Of course it did not keep me or thousands of others from getting out this past week.
The weekend before the 4th, I hosted a Puppy Play Party at Touché with guys from the Chicago Puppy Patrol. We set up a spot in the back bar for “four-legged” exercise and romping, We had several pups out to play. Thank fully they were all housebroken. The International Puppy & Trainer contest is being revived this September and will be held down in Tulsa, OK. If you want to find out more about pup play and/or the contest check out their website here.
The night before the 4th, I hosted our Full Moon Party at the bar. We had a nice crowd out but no one was adventurous enough to shoot the moon for my contest that night. I can never figure out why guys will pull it out in the back room but be too shy to proudly show off their assets, even for a cash prize! Must have been a lot tourists in the house.
I mentioned the thousands out and most all of them were on the lakefront trying to beat the heat on the 4th. It was too hot to grill, I laid out an indoor picnic at the bar in the afternoon and headed to the lake for the evening. I live just a couple of blocks from the lake here in Chicago with a beach at the end of my street. There is also a breakwall that juts out into the lake, makes for a great cool spot for theses hot days.
I’m out there on the breakwall with my man and we park ourselves looking back at the shoreline that is packed with people. From here we can see the fireworks from Navy Pier and Evanston to the north. Plus the multitudes of fireworks going off along the shoreline in both directions. Now I don’t know where these guys get them, but some of the stuff going off just over our heads are pretty damn impressive. Not just Roman candles, but rockets that burst huge, multi-colored, with secondary bursts, whistles and more. There was even this trio that lit up those floating lanterns in the night sky.
The best part, the crowd. I mean this holiday is about the birth of our country. The idea that men (and women) can determine their own fate, make their own choices, and do so in a free society. I grew up celebrating this holiday and what it means in a small white bread Ohio town.
Now I live here in Chicago, surrounded by people from all over the world who came here for the same thing. To live free from repressive governments and closed societies. I was out there with whites, blacks, Mexicans and Asians. Women in sari’s, scarves, dresses, shorts and bikinis. Men with robes, khakis, or swim trunks. All of us celebrating with food, drink and going “ahh” at every blast in the sky. And no one said anything about any of the gay couples out there too. It was an amazing celebration of what the USA is supposed to be about. I hope you enjoyed a perfect holiday as well.
Now it’s on to another weekend already. The Bijou Theater continues to be a jumping place, must be because lots of folks are off this week. I have our monthly Bear Party with the Great Lakes Bears this Saturday up at Touché. I am looking forward to a good time with the guys. So if you’re not doing anything this weekend, come on out and play at either place (or both)
I mentioned a bonus in the beginning of this week’s blast. Normally I shoot out my P(r)ick of the Week selection the first of the week and send out a blog or new release offer later in the week. Besides this week’s P(r)ick, I am including another of our sale flyers.
Not just any flyer either, this one features a whole bunch of our newly released on DVD features. Just in case you missed any of them, we have put them all together and on sale. It’s one of our biggest flyers because we included a great offer on over 90 VHS titles as well. It’s another of what Patrick here calls a “Twosies” sale featuring very limited quantities of each title. So look that over and call me right away with your picks.
Okay, I still have a bunch of orders to get out before the end of today, so I am heading back to the warehouse now. If you are sitting nude in front of the fan to keep cool, why not grab my P(r)ick and do something while you are sitting there?
Stay cool and hot!
