Snow at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? On The Strip, snow will be glistening. A beautiful sight, happiness at night. Ice skating in a winter wonderland. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, our home away from home when tearing through Sin City, will be soon turning its Boulevard Pool into a beautiful big sheet of ice to home Ice Rink starting today 11/21 through 01/04. To follow me here online is to also know that my husband Jacques and I head to Las Vegas…

It’s A Man’s World – Competing for Mr. Gay USofA

It’s been almost a week since we have all returned from Texas. Well, of course I’m speaking of my fellow contestants from the Mr. Gay USofA contest this past week in San Antonio. 24 amazing men, proud and strong, stood among their peers and gave it their all in categories of Interview, Talent and the wide wild world of Clubwear. I was among these hungry men coming to claim what was ours always giving it one hell of a shot in the process! In the end there were 23 winners and 1 Ultimate Grand Supreme. Here’s the entire tale… …

CRANBERRY CLOUDS ACROSS MUSIC CITY

I’m sitting here in my room at the Radisson Airport overlooking a sky of clouds in hues of cranberry, charcoal and periwinkle contemplating the last night of my fabulous trip home to Nashville. I’ve had an amazing time seeing very good friends, eating good southern food and venturing to old haunts of days past. I wish I could have seen everyone I had wanted to but there will be other trips. …

BEST BIRTHDAY GIFTS FOR GAY MEN

I’ve been sending birthday gifts to faraway friends lately since I can’t be there in person. Unfortunately time and distance separates us. Fortunately there’s trusty Amazon to help me when I can’t be there in person. When it comes to the best birthday gifts for gay men the ideas and lists run the gamut from leather to lace depending on exactly what man we’re speaking of. …

ALL AMERICAN GODDESS AT LARGE 2012 IS CROWNED! AND THE WINNER IS…

It was in conservative and quiet city of Dayton last week where front-runner Whitney Paige from Texas ripped up the stage and tore it down with her Whitney Houston production including four fine dancers clearing the way for her to snatch the coveted punchbowl crown of All American Goddess at Large 2012. But that’s the finale. This is the story as seen from my eyes. …

STEVEN TAKES SIN CITY

Always have, always will. OK, with that said, let’s dig into the ultimate sin of having your cake and eating it, too! This is how I celebrated my birthday — my way, in Sin City during the New Years’ holiday. …

“THE HELP” HITS HOME

We are all into Redbox right now. Easy movie rentals for $1 and there is a kiosk almost everywhere. Reserve the film online or take your chances at the actual machine, then pick it up for the night returning it by 9 p.m. the next evening at ANY Redbox kiosk. I always wondered how you could rent a movie at the airport via Redbox with the transient ways of a traveler. …

SIN CITY AND STEVEN MICHAEL

I just returned from a fabulous visit to Las Vegas and as always, we had a fierce time. Sin City and Steven Michael always get along. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas treated us very well with an upgraded suite and a round of drinks on the house. The Husband and I found ourselves in a sushi and sake serenade at Blue Ribbon Sushi and Grill…

ARIA ON MY MIND

I’m looking forward to my birthday getaway to Las Vegas in two weeks. We’re staying at The Cosmopolitan and our view will be of City Center including Vdara and ARIA. Last round we stayed at The Cosmopolitan our view was of the fountains of Bellagio and the stunning water show. This time to save a few duckies I decided that…
