Last Week Wrapped-Up
Miss O'Zone Pageant

On Monday February 20th was the annual Miss O’Zone Pageant. My friend Amanda West was stepping down from a fabulous year at the helm, and we all went down to support her. They had 8 good contestants and a fabulous crowd and in the end the new Miss O’Zone is Tatiana Braxton. Pictured is Amanda with her opening production cast.

Speaking of O’Zone, Marty Reagan who was the General Manager at O’Zone for 10 years recently gave his notice to concentrate on his other business and Monday was his last night. I was very sad to see Marty leave as we have had many long conversations in his office, and I will deeply miss him. However I am happy to say that Assistant Manager Ejean has taken over as the General Manager, so suffice it to say Marty has left the club in good hands!!

Other Upcoming Events 

Winterparty and MGLFF present Movie Under the Stars featuring a favorite from the 7th annual MGLFF (Guys and Balls) on Wednesday, March 1st at 8:00PM at the Surfcomber Hotel (1717 Collins Avenue). If “misfit gay sports comedies” can be called a whole new genre of film, then Guys and Balls takes that genre to a whole new level of hilarity. It’s got a double-entendre title (this is a soccer flick), lots of goofy sports stunts and revealing locker room scenes, a cute lovelorn hero, and a team full of every possible wacky homo - from studly nurse and femmy Turk to a horny leather-bear threesome. Throughout, the humor lurches in fresh new directions, with laugh-out-loud sight gags and a wry send-up of silly sports machismo. In a rural German town where soccer is everything, Ecki’s the champion goalie who just lost the game. As if that’s not bad enough, the other players discover he’s gay and banish him from the team. Vowing revenge, Ecki sets off to a nearby city to start his own all-gay squad and challenge the homophobic heteros. It’s an uphill battle, taking wide-eyed Ecki from a hospital delivery room (enter studly nurse) to the slings of an S/M sex-club (enter leather-bears). Meanwhile, back at home, Ecki’s weary parents endure homophobic gossip and a nonstop barrage of anal-sex jokes from a cranky old man. If Ecki’s team can ever get their game together and take on the hometown squad, we’re in for a raucous culture clash. Guys and Balls never takes its' coming-out tale too seriously, thank goodness and it keeps the romance light and sexy. After all, it’s only a game! (In German with English Subtitles) Ticket Prices are $15 in advance (at WinterParty.com) and $20 at the Door.
