back, Portland. Hopefully by now, you’re aware there have
been some changes in the pages of the Rose City’s ONLY
Adult Entertainment Guide. Last month I spent a good part of
this column excusing my own scandalous presence back at the
wheel of my former wrecking ball of a column, but I forgot to
fill you in on a couple of important details. The new direction
we’re taking this mag (editorially speaking) has only
just begun. In upcoming months, we hope to showcase local Portland
talent of all kinds: bands, artists, DJs, entertainers and more.
This month’s feature is a little hung-up on love and romance
(or the lack thereof), but next month we’ll be hoping
to bring you some of the best entertainment Portland has to
offer. But I’ll need your help on this…you know
someone who belongs stuck in the middle of our naughty little
pages? Pass it on and contact us here at Exotic at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or let’s be friends on our new myspace page, www.myspace.com/xmag.
Remember, kids, this is Exotic magazine, so no wimps, posers
or wannabes need submit. In the past I just woulda suggested
one of our competitors for that, but hey, they’re all
gone now, what can I say?
On to the news! Our kick-ass sales staff overloaded the hell
out of me this month with loads of special events so I’d
keep my mouth shut and keep ’em outta trouble…so
Lush fires off this smorgasbord of sinful entertainment with
AVN Hall of Famer Stephanie Swift as well as a Limo Party sponsored
by Exotic magazine. You won’t wanna miss this one. Being
a veteran of a several Exotic limo trips myself, I could tell
you some stories (if I could only remember them). April will
bring the return of the mother of all contests—the Miss
Nude Oregon Pageant will boast a $4000 prize booty. It’s
open to all entertainers, so start getting your “act”
together and go for the crown, ladies.
It’s kinda fun to watch from afar as the “talent
rotation” continues to shuffle in our fine little industry.
Atlantis Showgirls (formerly the Hideaway), now completely remodeled,
is offering a free Texas Hold ’Em tourney every Tuesday
and Wednesday, and ladies, there is no house fee…EVER!
Atlantis is now under the command of Claude Da Corsi and his
crew. Let’s see—Claude (formerly of Safari and Viewpoint)
wants us to know he wasn’t fired. “In this industry…you
don’t lose your job…you just lose your turn.”
True, true Claude. I’ve seen certain PDX individuals (who
shall remain nameless) that have circled every premier club
in town two or three times now, and I’m talking about
management—dancers can do that in a month.
BA Video on 52nd wants us to know they are now stocking a huge
selection of rare videos that um…bring out the “animal”
in you. Stop by for an Erotic Pajama Party at the Dolphin I
on Thursday, Feb. 16th and Dolphin II on Thursday, Feb. 23rd.
One of my favorite porn stars, Janine, will be the Mistress
of Ceremonies celebrating the grand opening of Stars Salem on
February 25th at 6PM. Tix are $30 in advance, with tons of VIP
perks, thousands in prizes, and a Jane Doe casting contest for
the upcoming film Welcome to Detroit.
My old alma mater Union Jacks is turning up the heat this month
with a brand-new series of cabaret acts on Friday, February
24th, including feature theme sets from former local porn star
Solara Starr, Exotic Covergirl Gia’s Old School burlesque
review and one of the “hottest” fire dancers of
all time, Ty Fyre.
Wow, looks like Stars is broadening their horizons this Valentine’s
Day as they present the Star’s Fetish Circus, featuring
body-mod manipulations and suspension, live tattoo art, fire
shows and tarot-card reading. And just to think, I remember
the days when Ink-n-Pink was just too darn freaky for ’em.
Way to go, guys, sounds like a blast, wish I could be there.
Welcome to Crazy Times out on 112th and Holgate—stop by
and check out their amazing selection of glass pipes, detox
aides, and more. When in Salem, be sure to stop by LaDonna’s,
where you can get free private dances with paid admission and
drink purchase every Monday. Fascinations on Foster has re-adopted
its former name back to Scarlett Ribbons. Rockstar Promotions
is now shaking up one of PDX’s classic skin joints, The
Dancin’ Bare. Babydolls & Honeysuckles are looking
at reopening next month—phew, that was a lotta info in
one paragraph, I told ya they’re choking me with news
Onward—Wildcats, home of the best tail in town, is tearing
it up on Fat Tuesday with a Wild Mardi Gras bash, and of course
a HUGE Super Bowl party on Sunday, February 5. While we’re
on the subject of the Super Bowl, at press time I’m gonna
be so bold as to say GO SEAHAWKS! (Fingers crossed.) Other venues
to take in the game include Bottoms Up, with specials all day
long and a massive big screen for your viewing pleasure. Tommy’s
II & III are offering a free buffet from noon to the final
tick in addition to lots of giveaways. Dream On Saloon is throwing
some prizes into the pool on game day as well, in addition to
a dance contest on the 23rd with cash prizes. Then hop on over
to the Pallas on the 24th for Gary the Retard plus Jade and
Kami’s Birthday Bash. The Pallas is also featuring a free
buffet on Mondays through Wednesdays from noon to four. Last
and certainly not least, Jody’s Bar and Grill presents
Nightcap Friday on Feb 24th featuring the all new “bed-stage,”
plus “Girl-Next-Door Night” every Thursday.
That’s it, kids, I’m out, enjoy the lineup this
month, looks pretty damn good from here.
