Alibi Employees Know How to Party

and here's how we got down

These are just a few of us who glammed-out and attended the party. The others were dancing and mingling so much they eluded the camera.
I will be sleuthing out more pictures presently...

Please note the sleazy 'staches on Laura and yours truly.

Glam dance party tomorrow! Fooooood.

I just got off the phone with Lou French of Standard Diner, which will be providing 300 appetizers at tomorrow’s Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party. Rodeo Grill will also be serving an array of delicious snacks.

All of these canapés come with the $10 door charge. The fabulous affair unfurls tomorrow inside the secluded Casa Esencia, a gorgeous party spot housed in the old Maria Teresa’s restaurant on 800 Rio Grande NW.

DJs Nicolatron, Tahnee, Mello and Cassyle (our music editor!) will spin glam rock, disco and electro. La Jaula will kick off the evening with Cuban boleros, Argentinian tangos and Mexican ballads at 7 p.m. Plus, a drag show!

Self Serve will provide dozens of free goodies, and you can unearth VIP tickets to Saturday’s PrideFest during the scavenger hunt.

Pride and La Jaula

Check this band out!

The Alibi is throwing a totally amazing Pride party at Casa Esencia, and some of my mysterious friends are playing. Three of the best (and most fun, and good looking) musicians around have formed the band La Jaula, and they're going to sex it up on Wednesday, June 8. The group is hard to catch, often playing underground cabarets or house parties, but the members have agreed to appear at the Alibi Pride event in all their full glory.

They perform Cuban boleros, Argentinian tangos, Mexican ballads and more, while playing characters that are sultry and funny.

La Jaula goes on pretty early—around 7:30 p.m. or 8—and you want to eat the delicious food from Standard Diner and Rodeo Grill before it's gone anyway, so come at the beginning of the party.

Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00pm - June 9 at 12:00am

Also featured:
DJ Nicolatron, DJ Tahnee, DJ Mello and the Alibi's own music editor, DJ Cassyle, all spinning glam rock, disco and electro. Sweet!
