Sunday Nights at -The Vault-

Have you folks dropped by -The Vault- on Sunday nights recently? If you haven't, you are really missing out. Seg and our newest DJ, YoYo Bur***C***khardt, play the most fabulous tunes. They'll play stuff you haven't heard in years, music that'll make you reminisce, make you daydream, make you tap your toes and dance. Come down and see what you've been missing!

**Editorial edit: I left out a C. Why?

AAA: Typo
BBB: The dog ate my spelling homework
CCC: I'm blonde
DDD: I'm blonde and I have big knockers

Here's a hint:

-The Vault- Welcomes Fresh Recruits!

I'm not sure where we're digging up these new Jazz Cats nowadays. I like this one a lot though!

This is Brent. Be sure to say hi to him next time you see him catting around -The Vault-!

So I just heard that Crooner Carlucci's show is cancelled for tonight. I have a *really* good guess why... A little bird told me his RL family was expecting a special delivery. Best wishes to you and yours, Crooner!!

And speaking of special deliveries, Quentin Falworth's mom just celebrated the day she spawned him. Happy Birthday Q!

And....We're so glad you found your little son! He's just adorable and he looks *just* like you!

The barflies (me, Gryffin, Liz, and Dita) nonchalantly approve.

Looking Back & Looking Forward

Forgive me, Vault patrons, it's been two weeks since my last confessio-- I mean my last blog post. In that two weeks, we've had a visitor who left her convent to come here and try to save Q's immortal soul. She must *really* be on the outs with the Mother Superior to be assigned this kind of epic task. Talk about a lost cause! And case in point... just last night she announced to the crowd she is shunning the habit and forsaking her vows! See her conversion below. Note the poor fellow at the bar, looking away from the downfall of grace.

In the meantime, we've had lots of fun goings-on here in Old Hollywood. -The Vault- became the happiest place on earth (yeah, I know, I know... use your imaginations on this with me here, please!) when Liz, Moonbeam and I arranged two all-Disney sets on one day! All of you showed up in the best costumes, and it was amusing and somewhat disturbing to hear how we all think of The Little Mermaid (the princess you'd most like to "know") and the seven dwarves (specifically, how their height was perfect for keeping Snow White very, very happy).

Dame Edith as Ursula (The Little Mermaid)

Dame Edith came back for the second set as Tinkerbell! Check out her support hose!

Moonbeam as Millificent (Sleeping Beauty) with Diablo the crow... creepy and fabulous!

My fiance (don't ask, it's a long story) Finn as "Prince F'ing Charming"

This past Saturday Violet played "Flavors Of Oz," some lovely tribute songs to The Wizard of Oz. Again, you all showed up in some fantastic costumes, though no one dared to be The Cowardly Lion in this den of sin.

Chaos Priestman is a flying monkey with a backup singer!

One Dorothy (that's Seg!)

Two Dorothy (this is Veronika!)

And Glinda (Galinda? Glinda with a guh?) the Good Witch played by Violet!

~~Welcome Our New DJ: Drakaar Dover~~

Yeah, fuhgeddabowdit... This guy's from Brooklyn and you can hear it in every syllable he utters. Not for nuttin' but I had a half-hour crush on the dude... Black pants held up by suspenders (gasp!) over a strappy undershirt showing off his well-defined muss-kels (swoon!) and topped by an impossibly fly fedora... (sigh....) But you really just want to know about the music, not all that stuff! This guy plays the fastest, swingin'est swing around. You won't get a chance to catch your breath and you'll love every minute of it! Join us here Wednesdays 6-8 pm and Drakaar'll hook you up.

All that, plus nightly events full of wonderful old swing and big band played by Persephone, Annabel, Lou, and me, AND rockin' rock-a-billy by Nhaomi, Sunday night 50s doo-wop by Seg, and Monday night ska (so fun!) by Gwillym... AND live music by Bluemonk and Crooner! -The Vault- is THE place to be!!!

~~P.S.: Mr Finchley~~

You all know Mr Finchley, that naughty pick-pocketing monkey who collects Lindens and bananas for -The Vault-. Apparently he has some other skills of which we were unaware. Call Mr Finchley directly for your 10, 20, or 30 minutes of monkey paw stress relief. Just keep in mind, Mr Finchley is easily distracted. He forgets the happy ending.

That's YoYo there getting the knots worked out of his neck muss-kels.
