Opening Night Extravaganza at The Bunkhouse, Fire Island
October 8, 2007
Last weekend I was proud to host Opening Night at the New and Improved Bunkhouse in Sayville Long Island. The quaint town of Sayville Long Island has a rich legacy of gay history. Traveling to The Bunk House these days, you are more likely to encounter one of the Fab Five or even the legendary Harvey Fierstein, en-route to Cherry Grove. The Bunk House is one of the most exciting sophisticated innovative clubs on the Island, with everything from country western nights and go-go dancing, to Tuesday movie night. This is the sort of watering hole where before long you most definitely will be part of the family — and the family grows, especially in summer when the place cranks with the Fire Island set.
As you approach this hidden obscure rustic long Island treasure, a bright neon sign welcomes you into something you could never be prepared for. Upon entry, a collection of famous drag divas decorate the club walls and immediately the show begins. The entertainment ensues complete with lip syncing and gyrations to popular tunes. Each night has a certain theme to it, and hopefully you are lucky enough to go when they are in effect.
Opening night was an extravaganza of glamorous drag queens on the runway doing the Fashion Walk. The night began with spectacular performances by Porshe, Drag Star extraordinariness Ariel Sinclair, Aura Stone and the glamorous platinum blonde China and The Dirty Dance Diva Wendy Diamond. The night completed with a Cognac Wellerlane Lookalike Contest which was won by Ms. China who took home the title Miss Cognac Wellerlane Lookalike 2007.
