hot tails of red stick

Welcome Spring
E
ven though it is not official yet, I
feel spring is in the air. I’m so
sure of this that I’ve moved all
my tropical plants outside, and hopefully the
season of cold weather is history once more.
I usually do the islands in the winter months.
It is an ideal time to enjoy the sun, stretch out
on the beach, sip on a nice drink, and watch
the world go by. I missed the islands this
winter and had to settle for the view from my
front porch.
So many friends were not able to take
in the Mardi Gras festivities this year because of the winter bugs that were definitely
running rampant in Red Stick. I couldn’t
even get out to attend the Spanish Town
Mardi Gras Parade. This is the first year that
I can recall when I didn’t take Dwayne’s
picture by the sign at the corner of Seventh
Street and Spanish Town Road. Most of the
time, these pictures were with my beautiful
little friend Corey, but in looking back over
my files, I even found one with that ever-sohandsome Suzanne.
Speaking of Suzanne, where in the
world are you sweetheart? My goodness! It
has been so long since I’ve seen you. I really
miss Minette’s old Hide-A-Way where we all
used to gather for good times. Even after
she sold it, and it changed its name, I still
enjoyed going there. It was hidden away,
and I think this is why I liked it. A lot of guys
wouldn’t go there, but I found it to be one of
the more pleasant places to be when I
wanted to just relax and forget about the
writing and the photography. It’s as if something special has left our city. In fact, the last
time I saw Minette was at Frank’s Restaurant with some of her friends getting ready
for the work day activities.
It was at the Hide-A-Way that Suzanne
and I have spent some quality time. I’ll never
forget the night I photographed her in that
tuxedo. She was really one of the most
gorgeous, handsome, beautiful women I’ve
ever had the pleasure of photographing. I
still have to smile when I think of the way we
originally met. She was with a friend and
appeared at my front gate on one of the
Spanish Town parade days. She was in dire
need of a bathroom, and I let this unknown
beauty into my home while her friend waited
with me on my front porch. We often laughed
about this, and for me, I consider it fate that
we got to be special friends who have now
been separated by time. I hope she is well,
and I hope Minette is okay too. BC Boy
usually catches me up on Minette and what
she is doing. They work together so all is not
lost here. Now if only I can re-connect with
Suzanne.
I’ve missed seeing Corey too. I do keep
up with him on Facebook, and this is one of
the most dynamic LSU fans ever. He just
doesn’t miss a game be it football, baseball,
or any other game or other activity connected to the university. My friend Simone is
the same way. She is also an avid fan. Even
Corey’s office space is decorated in LSU
items.
I guess I have to be classified as a great
fan of my alma mater, TCU, and I follow my
Horned Frogs everywhere they go. I occasionally go back to Fort Worth, wander around
the Alumni Center, and look for old friends.
However, it’s a different world now. As you
age, you lose contacts quickly. I keep up by
reading the magazine that is issued by the
university, but just walking around the campus isn’t the same. It’s changed up a lot
since I was there. On one of my last visits,
I toured the science building where I had
spent so much of my time during my college
years. The names on the doors of my
former professors were unfamiliar, the exhibits looked different in the hallway display
cases, and the labs and classrooms did not
even seem the same. The bookstore by the
Student Center was gone and was now
located in a separate building at the edge of
campus and under the name of one of the
major book dealers. I guess it is a sign of the
times the way our economy has altered
things. It was nice to go up and down the
isles checking out items I needed, and the
addition of the coffee shop in the back section was nice. The old TCU Theater where
I worked during my freshman year is there
but not officially a movie outlet. Plays seemed
to have taken over. I didn’t bother to go to the
fraternity dorm, but maybe I will on my next
trip out to Cowtown. There were some
happy times there.
It is nice to see our three major gay bars
here in Baton Rouge existing nicely.
George’s is the oldest, and it has changed
very little. Splash is in the same building, but
there is always something new being added
to improve the surroundings. Hound Dogs
has remained the same too. All three offer
great places to dance, do karaoke, enjoy
friends, and offer your favorite drinks with
great bartenders taking care to help you
enjoy the times there.
Delightful Tidbits
R
obert is still enjoying his art
classes at LSU, but he admits
that it keeps him busy with all
the work involved with his studies. I believe
that other half Brandon has another position
at the state office where he works. It is
difficult keeping up with these two. If they
aren’t fixing up old homes and doing other
preservation work, they are off to enjoy
Broadway plays. They celebrated this past
Christmas and New Years Day in South
America. For all I know, they may be off on
another trip now, but I doubt it with those art
classes taking up so much of Robert’s time.
My sexy lawyer Joseph celebrated his
latest 29th birthday last week, and I believe
that the sexy ROU stud Kenny made another birthday recently. I have a difficult time
keeping up with these dates. That is why I
keep my calendar handy – to jot down important occasions that I don’t want to forget.
I notice that Sam and I are scheduled to
do Camelot at the Baton Rouge Little Theater and Wicked in New Orleans this month.
Since both are afternoon performances,
dinners will probably follow. I really look

forward to the New Orleans plays and will be
so happy to have the Saenger return to its
glory days. I don’t dislike the current location, but it just isn’t the same as it was before
Katrina did us in. Being in New Orleans
makes dining more complicated. There are
just so many great restaurants that it is sometimes difficult to decide
which one to do. Of course, that means I just need to make it down to
the Crescent City more often. With the warmer weather approaching,
I’ll probably be doing that and enjoying my visits with old friends.
I got a note from Mina that her mother had surgery and is doing fine.
That is good to hear. We used to all have some great times together, and
we need to do this again. It is always nice to be in Mina’s company
anyway. She is one of the most delightful young women I know – great
personality, always so positive in her outlook on life, and
definitely a super magnificent friend.
Last week when I was returning home, I was about to
stop in at Hound Dogs to see Jeannie, but when I pulled up to
the light, I noticed her about to get in her car. I didn’t even honk
at her for fear of scaring you know what out of her. After a few
drinks, I wanted to make sure she remained on her feet and
able to get home. There will be other times when we can relax
and catch up on things.
Joy is always a delight to be around. She makes going
to Hound Dogs worth the effort, and I have to admit that she
is probably the most congenial and entertaining of all the
bartenders I know. There is just never a dull moment when
she is on duty.
I find this same atmosphere of friendship when I’m
around Luther at George’s. It has been a while since we dined
together, and that needs to be corrected too. Like I say,
warmer weather gets everyone out more. I always enjoy
Luther’s company so much. I just adore that beautiful smile
and the great and outgoing personality that he has. Sharing
dinner with him is always a special occasion.
Jared was at George’s last week when I delivered papers. He usually works nights, and I was surprised to see him
there. That happened a couple of months ago when I ran into
Jeremy there. I think of them as being on the night shift. I’ve
never run into Philip, but I will one of these days. He is
definitely a cute one. I wonder if he has more jewelry than the
one that shows. And that goes for Jared too. Hmmm.
Joey was out and about the other day. This is another
cutie that doesn’t seem to make it out as much as he did in the
past. It just seems as one grows older, there is more of a
tendency to stay home. Since he lives in Baker, this may be
one reason. I know that often when I get home, I just don’t want
to get out again, and it takes a special event to move me. I
will have to admit that Joey is a mover and shaker. He is just
one of the most beautiful young men I’ve ever met. He is not
only a joy to be around, but he is so sincere in everything he
does. I admire his high standards and wish him the very best.
I haven’t seen Stephen lately either which means I need
to get back over to Splash and check out the situation there.

The Twilight of the Golds
at Actor’s Theatre
of New Orleans
”
Shallow and predictable,” “canned
and stale” and “a mixture of flip
pancy and self-righteousness” were
just some of the phrases Ben Brantley used
to describe Jonathan Tolins’ The Twilight of
the Golds in The New York Times when it
opened on Broadway in 1993. As you can
imagine, my expectations were pretty low
as I approached the Actor’s Theatre of New
Orleans’ recent production of it.
But expectations have a way of being
confounded. I found this dramedy to be
entertaining, engrossing, and eminently
stageworthy. And, having bumped into some
friends at the theater, I wasn’t the only one
who felt that way.
Twilight of the Golds examines what
happens when a young New York couple,
hot tails of red stick ...from 32
I talked to David a long time last week and
got caught up on things there, but it isn’t the
same as being with all the guys. He did tell
me that Lance was gone. I knew he was
moving to Austin, but I wasn’t sure exactly
when this would happen. Now it has, so this
leaves a void that will be difficult to fill. That
void doesn’t rest with Splash but with me. I
have always thought so highly of him. From
the first time I met him, I saw in him a very
special individual. That meeting was at
George’s many years ago when he first
started to work there and was attending
LSU. Now with a degree and a new lover,
Austin claimed this beautiful young man,
and Red Stick has lost one of the sexiest
guys to ever grace you with his presence. I
wish him well.
I have a lot of catching up to do, more
columns to write, a short story to finish, and
even housework to do. You heard that right.
It’s one of those necessary evils of life. I’ve
already done the dishes, washed and dried
my clothes, finished my assignments for
Ambush, and it is only noon. Now what in the
world am I going to do this afternoon? In
case you didn’t see it coming, I’ll be resting
up and looking forward to seeing what Tony
and Ziva will be up to, catching the sexiest
man on TV (Matt Bomer on “White Collar”),
and enjoying that sexy Robin in his latest
role as Callan.
Don’t bother me on Tuesdays. I have
plans that I don’t like to have interrupted
beginning with an early dinner at Tsunami
and then my only favorite TV night.
I hope all of you have a nice St. Patrick’s
Day and also St. Joseph’s Day. I have spent
many happy times in New Orleans at these
two days of celebrations. I’ll miss the St.
Joseph’s Day Parade here in Red Stick
because of a prior engagement, but I’m sure
it will be another great day of honoring the
green.
Wherever you are, enjoy your pleasures as life moves on. It is truly real when
you realize that it is all here today and gone
tomorrow. It is important to live your life to
the fullest. Make waves. Just don’t muddy
the waters in the process.
Suzanne and Rob, discover, through genetic testing, that there’s a 90% chance their
firstborn child will turn out to be gay.
Suzanne’s brother David is openly gay. While
their parents are supportive, it becomes
clear they would’ve much preferred it if he
had been straight. With references to
Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen (its
final part, Götterdämmerung, translates
to The Twilight of the Gods) along the way,
Twilight of the Golds is as much Greek
tragedy as it is of the Nordic variety, as its
characters’ seemingly inevitable decisions
wind up having tragic consequences.
Tolins’ dialog is witty and thoroughly
natural and his characters are neither good
nor bad but all too human, revealing recognizable personalities that make it seem like
you are eavesdropping on an upper middle
class Manhattan family. René J.F. Piazza
assuredly directed a fast-paced first act that
clearly set things up for the somewhat talkier,
but still absorbing, Act Two. If at times his
stage images were a bit static, the production had a very natural air to it with nothing
feeling forced.
The entire cast worked together as a
true ensemble and, by not straining, as
could happen with such operatically-inclined
material, they convinced us of their characters’ authenticity, no small feat whenever
Southerners attempt to do NYC Jews.
Coming off his bravura turn in Jewtopia
as a straight Jewish man looking for shiksas,
T. Joe Seibert was just as convincing as a
gay Jewish man looking for parental love
and approval. As the scenic designer David,
Seibert perfectly captured that slightly nasal
New York voice and the mannerisms of an
echt New Yorker without ever going overboard. Though slight of stature, it would be
a mistake to perceive Seibert’s David as
nebbishy as he ultimately revealed a spine

Daniels, Barbara Ella and Cathy Fox, who
was looking especially reminiscent of Bette
Davis in All About Eve that night. And she
was right, we had to hold on to your hats on
the way home it was a bumpy ride.
The atmosphere in the place was lively
and the mood was festive. If you have never
had a chance to go to Billy’s, grab a group of
friends and try it out one night. From the
personable bartenders to the friendly crowd,
I am sure you will have a good time. And,
who knows you just find Mr. or Mrs. Right
