Inaugural Krog Masquerade Goes Underground

By Dustin Shrader

Looks like Halloween will not be the only opportunity to wear a mask this fall. On Saturday October 25th, Atlanta’s iconic Krog Street Tunnel will be undergoing quite the transformation. A modern, European-style masquerade ball complete with live entertainment, street performers, DJ Salah, food, and music is shaping up to be a deliciously, sinful time!

According to the press release, “This event will “push the envelope” as guests are immersed in an unforgettable evening of cocktails, sounds by premiere Atlanta DJ Salah, and transformative vignettes behind a red velvet curtain. Brief tableaus of body art, burlesque and peep show performances will stimulate the imagination.”

The press release also advises that “taboo” will be the norm for the night. Masks, an open-mind and adventurous spirit are prerequisites to garner entrance.

Count us in!

If a night of dancing with mysterious strangers in a tight enclosure basked with erotic thrill sounds like a mind-blowing time, then the Krog Masquerade is right up your alley.

The festivities begin at 8 p.m. with pumpkin time commencing at 1 a.m. General admission tickets are $50, which grant entrance to the ball. $100 VIP tickets include five complimentary drink tickets and bites courtesy of 97 Estoria, exclusive interactive live entertainment, access to the VIP tent and more.

For more information and ticket purchase, visit www.krogmasquerade.com. The event is presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces and Sean O’Keefe Events.

Your Sexiest and Gayest Halloween Costume Ever!

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Every year around this time the all-important question beckons: What should I dress up as at Halloween?! If you are a good gay, you know how that thinking and planning ahead thing works wonders, which means that you have already given the important issue some thought, right? Umm, not even close… If you are like most gays you’re are running around right trying to put together a costume from what’s in your closet. But don’t fret because FENUXE will help you make this Halloween even simpler for you. Because we have set up some basic guidelines for you, so getting that perfect costume is going to be easier than ever – and will leave everyone else at the fright night wanting to carve your pumpkin because of how sexy it is …

FENUXE Gay Costume Sexy CopRule #1 – Go For Stereotypes
The Village People did it – and it worked perfectly! Sticking to recognizable and (thanks to the Village People) gay stereotypes is a sure way to sex it up at any Halloween gathering. Who doesn’t like a sexy cop, the hunky cowboy or the boyish sailor. If everything else fails, you can always go for the sexy Indian: All it takes is brown underwear perhaps with a (brown) cloth covering your junk and a colorful armband. And a feather if you’re like really like taking it like far..

Rule #2 – Go Cute and Damn Sexy
You know those girls who just show up in bunny ears and a fluffy tail (oh, and a sexy, skin-showing outfit to boot) and steal the attention of the whole party? Why not copy that, but do a male version of it? How about some of those adorable Mickey Mouse ears, red shorts, black shirt and yellow suspenders? Or a really sexy Santa? Or Easter Bunny? Any cultural icon will do really as long the skin is a-showin’…

FENUXE Atlanta Gay Costume Sexy FiremanRule #3 – Go Basic Or Go Home
Out of clever ideas for costumes? Or was the costume rental out of the 19th century nobleman with feathered hat and knee-high leather boots to match? Don’t fret but depend on the basics instead: sexy waiter, inmate, businessman and so forth. It’s simple and easy – just make sure that your costume is skimpy and sexy!

Rule #4 – Go For The Superhero
Who hasn’t had their share of superhero fantasies? Is there a double meaning to the moniker Man of Steel? Does Batman really mean that he is a top? And how big is Thor’s hammer? OK, we digress, but there is undisputed hotness surrounding any superhero, and you can benefit from that. You will probably need to wear pants of some sort, but that gives you good reason to divert attention to your bulging, uhm, biceps. And of course there is always the possibility of you forming one of those sexually ambiguous superhero duos with someone…

Rule #5 Go For Anything Sports
It’s hard to go wrong with any sports-related costume – unless of course it’s curling, darts or figure skating! And maybe golf. And bowling. The list of incredibly hot sportsmen is practically endless and will provide others with ample possibility to hook up with that tennis ace, football player, racecar driver, wrestler, swimmer (ok, you finish the list…)

If you’re not dressing up this year… you can at least let your house in on the fun. Check out this home we found in Atlanta on Whitefoord Road:

Howl’een in Midtown

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Gay Atlanta loves their pups and you know it! And if you didn’t know there are plenty of pet-friendly places to go eat where you can bring your pup along for the fun!

On October 30th from 5-7 PM, come, sit and stay at some of Atlanta’s dog-friendliest patios for Midtown’s very first Pup Crawl.

Each Pup Crawl ticket includes a total of 5 specially-crafted canine cocktails from Henry’s Midtown Tavern, Einstein’s, Joe’s On Juniper, Cucina Asellina and Loews Atlanta Hotel.

The Loews Atlanta Hotel is the final stop on the Pup Crawl where even more Howl’een festivities are taking place at the hotel’s 4th Annual ‘Costumes on the Woof’ doggy costume contest from 7-9 PM. Your Pup Crawl admission will get you into Loews Atlanta Hotel’s Costumes on the Woof costume contest for free.

Celebrity guest judges will vote on which pup strutted its stuff best on the runway and owners will be awarded great prizes. Loews Atlanta Hotel will also have tasty hors d’ouevres for humans, an amazing snack bar for pups, a DJ, and a cash bar so the two- as well as four-legged will stay hydrated and refreshed throughout.

Pup Crawl tickets ($30/each) include a total of five specially-crafted canine cocktails at participating Pup Crawl locations and proceeds go to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue! Tickets can be purchased and picked up at any of the five locations.

Photography will be provided at the event by Puparazzi Portraits and there will also be vendor tables from: Barking Hound Village, Canine PhD, Di-O-Gi Pet Services, Peachtree Dog Training, Puparazzi Portraits, Sleek Soap, Taj Ma-Hound Gourmet Dog Treats, and Woof Gang Puck Bakery.

Boo Girl Boo!

Holler Poodles! With Pride behind us, the second biggest holiday of the year is coming up soon and I hope you all partake in the festivities. As a board member of Jerusalem House, I’m excited to share with you that Atlanta’s Premiere Open Bar Halloween Party will be giving away over $2,500. “Fairytales and Magic” will be at The Foundry at Puritan Mills on October 26th from 7 p.m. till midnight and I hope to see you all there! If you recall our past parties, you know this is one not to miss!

Don’t forget to book a makeup artist for all your Halloween needs. Why spend all that time and energy on a great costume and just average makeup? Check with your favorite drag queens to see if they are available to do your makeup. The better makeup artists charge $150 depending on your needs. I encourage you to book early–I’m already booked for three appointments on that Saturday. If you’re interested, I’m including a couple of pictures I’ve done.
