There’s never a dull moment in Hollywood it seems, and last night was no exception. Nylon Magazine held its annual “Young Hollywood” Party, and given that I am the paragon of the young Hollywood ideal, it seemed like the logical thing for me to attend this bash. Joining me were two of my lady lovers, Phamtastic and Ashton, and our friend Sean (not a lady lover, but a spirited gentleman nonetheless). Together the four of us proudly tromped our way through Hollywood hotspot Bardot to take in the lights, the stars, and most importantly, the free booze.
Paper Magazine held a party for its annual “Beautiful People” issue last night at the Standard in West Hollywood, and I was lucky enough to snag an invitation to the swanky event.

The three of us headed to Michael Utsinger’s “NYC Invades LA” event at The Roxbury, the iconic ’90s hotspot (and movie namesake) which has been reborn in Hollywood after having been shuttered for over a decade. Some random pictures from the event as well as various embarrassing photos of me dancing after the jump… Continue reading →
