(Pics) Party on at Rockit Fridays
Apr 21, 2011
The line outside Rockit at District 36 was was down the block. Inside, boys were dancing to DJ Corey Craig‘s beats as they sipped on free Absolut Wild Tea. The main floor got crazy early so my group ventured to the mezzanine for more dancing space. “Looks like New York got her groove back,” I joked to one of my friends.
I was upstairs in the VIP lounge when the lights flickered and Amanda Lepore took to the catwalk to introduce the UnderGear Evolution fashion show. The cocktail waitress came over with a flaming bottle of vodka and the crowd below went wild. My jaw dropped when I caught some of my favorite male models like Ben Pamies, Christopher Fawcett, and the drop dead gorgeous James Guardino as they strutted their stuff in new undergarments.
After the show DJ Corey Craig kicked it up a few notches. I went over and gave him a thumbs up and he leaned over and said, “Baby, I’m just getting started.” Sure enough, the cocktail waitress brought over another bottle of vodka with a huge firecracker in it as a remix of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own blared. I looked around and took in the dance floor. I caught a glimpse of Ebonee Excell in the stairwell and listened to Kim Sozzi rock it out before my boyfriend and I hailed a cab and headed home.
