St. Louis Street Rocks
Ms. Fly, just back from Germany, a little barefoot and
pregnant, was a hit for New Meat Night at the Corner Pocket.
Fly was dishing everyone, even dear ole Smurf. The best thing Fly liked about Smurf's shows is that she's "usually out of town."
Fly told us she kept Lucille sober while in Germany. And then there was the story about one gent rubbing all over Mumbo. Mumbo told him "bite me, I'm sweet dark chocolate."
Then it was down the street to see Miss Do over at the Double Play. Miss Do was cracking her whip keeping all her customers in line. Do told us we had to buy lots of drinks. After all, she has a new condo to pay for.
Next up was a visit to the Giddy. Yes, the Roundup is gearing up for the 1st Miss Le Roundup Universe Pageant starring Miss Gay Universe Tamisha Iman. Preliminary competition will be Sat., Nov. 8 with the presentation/question and talent categories. Sun., Nov. 9 is final competition with the evening gown, sportswear and fantasy walk categories.
