Howdy, Gasmii! Well, the Gasm still has its temperamental “issues”, so if there’s a delay in getting the full recap up, you’ll know why. Anyhoo, to answer the question from my one reader last week – yes, that was Madonna. Ew! Oh I’m sorry should I say that in a fakey half-British accent she uses? “Why yes, old bean, that was a photographic image of “Madonna” in the prior week. Simply ghastly, wasn’t it? Cheerio!”
Getting back to our Aussie friend, we’re now at ep 2. Tabs is right in my neck of the woods, Long Beach. Actually I don’t live anywhere near Long Beach, but here in SoCal a “neck of the woods” is within 100 miles. I’ve been to Long Beach though. They have a kicka-s Pride Parade. Also a very nice aquarium, and a little “old-timey” type place with a candy store TO DIE FOR. Gays, fish (both kinds) and candy. Works for me. Also they have a port. Hello, Sailor!
Tabs is at Ripples, the first gay dance club in Long Beach, whose glory days (not sure about any glory holes) are long past. In contrast to pretty much every other place she visits, Ripples has staff who are good at their jobs, not hostile, and who enthusiastically participate in the club’s transformation. Nice to see that for a change. From the preview, next week is the exact opposite.
Larry and John, the club’s owners, are the ones who really need work. John just wants to hang out in his office, Larry has cameras in the club and is constantly calling his employees with little picky corrections, and he has all sorts of rules that just don’t work. Larry and John seem stuck in the past. They’re definitely not up with what’s going on currently (and by that I mean in the last 2 decades), including being non-computer-savvy. So they’ve never advertised on Twitter, Facebook, etc., and they’ve never read reviews of their place. Also they charge a cover, for what is usually an empty bar. Because people love paying for the privilege of drinking all by themselves.
And for god’s sake don‘t get them started on water!
All the deets in a full recap, up
soon in a day or so sometime before the world ends in December.
