Theo Richards Mr. Florida International Escort 2012 Comes to Boardwalk By Rick Karlin

o

Lovers and lookers alike can get some more life out of their Valentine’s Day weekend by checking out the Friday, February 15 appearance of Theo Richards, who stood firm as Mr. Florida in Rentboy.com’s “2012 International Escort Awards” (also known as “The Hookies”), at Boardwalk Bar (1721 N Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale) during a live award contest hosted by Chi Chi LaRue. The winner of the Mr. Florida Escort will be Theo’s successor, and go to the Big Apple for the international contest. The Boardwalk event is prelude to the 7th Annual International Escort Awards, which takes place in New York City at the Roseland Ballroom on Friday, March 22. The star-studded gala in Times Square is part of the Black Party Expo convention. This year some of the biggest and freshest porn stars in the business will appear on stage as nominees. Past winners include Rafael Alencar, Jesse Santana, Tommy Defendi, Spencer Reed, Vito Gallo, Heath Jordan, Chase Hunter, Samuel Colt, Erik Rhodes, Junior Stellano, Kyle King, Diesel Washington, Barrett Long, Arpad Miklos, and Ben Andrews. The reigning Mr. Florida Escort, Theo Richards (who was also voted “Best Top” in the competition) is one of the most popular escorts in the country. On his web page, he describes himself as “Hot, uncut top always ready and horny, with the most beautiful 9.5” x 7”uncut tool! Take advantage of this great hung amazing guy! Discreet, reliable with a hot 5’11”, 180 pounds muscular body. Very handsome, with a great smile. Let me show you, and give you the best time of your life. Don’t be afraid I don’t bite, unless you really want me to!!!” Theo sat down with Guy Magazine to discuss his reign as Mr. Florida Escort, and handing over his magnificent ‘scepter’ to his as-yet-unknown successor. What is the key to being a successful escort? Being ready to travel and taking the time to get to know the men you work with. What the biggest misconception about a performer in your line of work? Some people immediately assume I’m not

trustworthy because of what I do, but I am. How did winning Mr. Florida change your life? It brought me so much more business and money—and a lot of airline miles. What is your best attribute (wink, wink)? My fun personality and my heart. What current top 40 song best describes you? The new Britney Spears song, “Scream and Shout,” describes me pretty well. Why do you think you won 2012 Mr. Florida Escort? I worked hard for it, with promos and shows all over the United States and Europe. What’s the craziest thing anyone has asked you to do in the line of work? I was once asked to do scat (defined by the urbandictionary.com as a “slang term for ‘coprophilia, fecophilia, fecalphilia or coprolagnia. It is a paraphilia involving sexual pleasure through human feces, or rather to its excretion”). What’s the most surprising thing about being an escort? It’s a real job and a lot of men genuinely hope to learn about the real you on dates. Do you have any advice for this year’s Mr. Florida hopefuls? Live the exciting moments: there are a lot of them as an escort!  Be true to who you are, and don’t pretend to be “bad” or “dangerous” just because you think that’s what guys want in an escort. Be there as a human being for your clients, treat them respectfully, and demand respect in return.

THE SCENE

Out of this World Block Party, Jamie Grace Wears It, and Richard Hatch ‘Bears’ It By Rick Karlin

o

The Block Party celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Out of the Closet Wilton Drive location on Saturday, Feb. 2 in Hagen Park, was hosted by AHF and Infinity Lounge (with Ken Hill and Crew pouring drinks), and featured music, barbecue, a cash grab booth, a photo booth, go-go dancers, raffle prizes, giveaways, and more. There were also two vans on site providing the INSTIMrapid HIV test, which produces results in one minute. It was a party first and foremost, with everyone enjoying burgers, hot dogs, and chicken from Daily Dinners (“D&D”) Catering, but would it have killed them to offer a veggie burger? A Who’s Who of local faces descended upon the Scene, and CNI Studios captured it all on camera while Tony Beall, “Mr. Non-Profit Consultancy,” made certain things ran smoothly. Mark Berlin and Rich Smith were spied laughing it up, while Mark Richards, Edward Moquin, and Robert Scala took the opportunity to browse the al fresco Out of the Closet store set up for the event. Eric Gilbert, looking dapper in a Chicken Ranch T-shirt, won one of the many raffle prizes. The Florida Agenda/Guy Magazine monthly networking event, Mix, convened in the Lounge at Dapur, and was packed to the rafters with good food, refreshing drinks, and, of course, folks networking. Carmine Martorilli and hubby (and Smart “Rider”) Bob Poster had the best spots at the bar. Mortgage broker Sharon Pickard entertained a group of lovely ladies, Island City Eyecare’s Dr. Alan Shaffer and Daniel Spring, President of South Beach Insurance, were among the business owners attending. Jamie Grace looked dapper in a straw fedora, while charming Adele Bowsley—Marketing Director of for The Whole Enchilada—was a vision of loveliness. Jerry Yerich, Village Pub owner, was his usual genial self.

Jennifer McClain at Alibi Rumors Bar and Grill on the Drive is open and looking spiffy, with three large bar spaces packed with video screens, a great pool table, a full menu (including gator-somethings), and a hot crowd served by a friendly staff. Co-owners Shawn Bombard (of Shawn & Nick’s Courtyard Café fame), Nick Berry (ditto), and  Brendan Gorman each bring a wealth of knowledge and hands-on Drive experience to a party that hasn’t stopped since their soft opening two weeks ago. A welcome addition to the north end of the Drive (with perennials Rosie’s, New Moon, Le Patio, and Bona Italian). Thumbs up, Guys! Chad Bush let it slip at Ramrod’s Pig Night that “Survivor” reality star Richard Hatch will host the Sunday Adventure Cruise during Beachbear Weekend in May. Dane Lawrence, Kevin Wright, Eric Troy, and Steve Whitney also were there for Pig Night and Mike worked the register at the Leatherwerks outlet. Brian Harman of Tribal Son had a great display of body art (it’s too cool to call mere jewelry). The Manor was one stop on a lesbian bus tour heading for an Olivia Cruise. Jennifer McClain shared the stage with a “singer” at Alibi. (He couldn’t carry a tune in a two-handled sack, but since he was half-naked and had a hot body, no one complained.) DJ Chuck Knowles was spinning great tunes at Infinity, while down the street at Tropics Larry Hammon kept Donna and Michelle Wienold in line at the piano bar. At Johnny’s, Adam Johnson (his real name) joined bartender Mike (the “Stunning Armenian”) sucking on his… drinks during Super Bowl. Alibi was a bit rowdy for the Big Game—possibly due to the $3 Long lslands. Remi Chapadeau couldn’t make it but sent his regards from Canada (he’s coming down for Valentine’s Day). Harry Ramirez, Frank Sullivan, Jaiders Blues, and Richard Henager are all loving D.I.L.F. at Bill’s.

THE WEEK

Clay Court Classic, ‘Frankenhooker,’ and a Valentine’s HeART On The Week, 2/14 to 2/20/2013

Indie Cinema: “North Sea Texas”

By Grant James

Thursday (Valentine’s Day)

2/14

Anti-Valentine’s Day oDrive staple Rosie’s Bar and Grill has cooked up their own version of Jessica Biel’s neurotic annual I Hate Valentine’s Day Party from the movie. Featuring an evening of fun, great breakup songs, and stiff drinks, Rosie’s trumps the cry-in-your-beer lonely hearts night with a chance to “Shred Your Ex:” Bring in a photo of your dreaded former beau or belle, shred it, and get a free shot of Patron or Fireball Whiskey (limit one per person—or is it one per break up?). The bar opens at 11 a.m.: believe me, we’ll see you there. At Rosie’s (2449 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors).

oO Cinema, the largest indie art house theater in South Florida, presents “North Sea Texas,” a charming and beautiful story of unrequited young gay love. Gorgeously shot with sumptuous, saturated coloring and wonderful acting, the delightful Belgian film is a quality work of foreign cinema, having played most of the major LGBT film festivals, including Miami. Through February 17, with show times at 7 and 9 p.m. (except Saturday the 16th, show times at 1 and 3:30 p.m.), at O Cinema (9806 NE 2 Ave., Miami Shores). THE WEEK continues on page 32

The King & You oHere’s a chance for you to act out all your romantic and fun (kinky?) fantasies of falling in love with an overbearing King of Siam while teaching English to his kids (maybe we have slightly stranger ideas of romance and fun). Either way, there’s no better way or better day to celebrate your love than Valentine’s dinner (a five course meal) and live performances by Rey Wowor at Dapur Asian Tapas and Lounge. Dinner performances at 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 p.m. (1620 N Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale).

Mouthy Drag Dining oLips Cabaret serves up “The Ultimate in Drag Dining,” with a “Night of Love” hosted by Nicolette. A dining experience at Lips is the absolute best, bar none. You’ll laugh, participate in awkward audience participation segments, and enjoy a fantastic pre fixe menu. This is your V-Day spot to celebrate with a group of friends. (1421 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale).

Nicolette at Lips (2/14)

THE WEEK Friday

2/15

Nothin’ Says “Lovin’:” Kids in Distress Bake Sale oThe South Florida Sisters of the Rising Sun (a fullyrecognized Mission of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence) really know how to put the “fun” in fundraising, dedicating their efforts to raising money for charities and non-profit organizations. (Think of them as the Kiwanis in drag.) The Sisters are holding a bake sale fundraiser for Kids in Distress, so get ready to scarf down brownies and black-and-white cookies for a good cause. 9:30 p.m. at Wilton’s Bier Garden (2245 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors).

Hot Men and Women in Tennies! (Is There a Downside to This?) oThe 2013 Clay Court Classic takes place this Presidents Day Weekend at the Lauderdale Tennis Club. The tournament offers singles and doubles at all levels, and is hosted by the South Florida Tennis Club (SFTC), a nonprofit organization founded in 1987—and part of the international governing body, the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA)—to develop and coordinate tennis activities for South Florida’s LGBT community and its friends. Through February 18, at Fort Lauderdale Tennis (600 Tennis Club Dr., Fort Lauderdale).

‘Classic’: A different kind of Love (2/15)

32

guymag.net

From the Surreal to Infinity oAs part of Island City Art Walk, Infinity Lounge hosts the work of photographic artist Michael Perna, whose images of urban photography capture the spirit of surreal artists, featuring a vivid palette and evocative themes. (It doesn’t hurt that the artist is as easy on the eyes as his work.) At Infinity Lounge (2184 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors).

HeARTS on the Drive and Island City Art Walk oCelebrate an evening of art and love, and support your local merchants during Wilton Manors first annual HeARTS on the Drive, which will serve as a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day for one more night and mark the February edition of the Island City Art Walk, which hosts artists at participating businesses along the Drive during every third Friday of the month, from November to April (now in its seventh year). Over 35 businesses sponsor the Art Walk, which features representations from a wide range of mediums and genres, including sculpture, paintings, and handcrafted jewelry. Wilton Manors officials have announced the closure of Wilton Drive to vehicular traffic for the HeARTS event, which is hoped to become an annual postValentine tradition. Parking for the dual event will be available at the municipal lot behind City Hall, via access from Dixie Highway to Northeast 21st Court and from Wilton Drive on the south to Northeast 20th Street.


THE WEEK Sweet Serena(ty) oFresh off the set of “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” arrives drag sensation Serena Chacha. The beautiful Fort Lauderdale-native performs for one night in the main room of The Manor Nightclub, with DJ JPS spinning danceable tracks all night long. As always, the crowd is cute and 18-and-up. At 10 p.m., at The Manor (2345 Wilton Dr., Wilton Manors).

Saturday

2/16

Sunday Kerowacked

oInspired by the writers of the “Beat Generation” and the most inspired of them all, Jack Keuroac, Kerowacked is an all day event featuring bands, artists, and multi-media presentations for your pleasure. From noon to 10 p.m., at the ActivistArtistA Gallery (422 W Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach).

The Flea Market for Your Inner Nerd oHere’s a chance for you to swap comics, toys, videos, and any other weird junk you have in your closet (within reason) with other likeminded types at Tate’s Comics Community Swap. Buy, sell, or trade your old comic books for some new titles, or maybe work out a deal for that giant stuffed Pikachu you’ve always wanted. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Tate’s Comics parking lot (4566 N University Dr., Lauderhill).

Ach du Lieber! The Vienna Boys Choir

2/17

Romance Lives! “Frankenhooker” and “My Bloody Valentine”

Jensen Ackles in My Bloody Valentine (2/17)

oHorror film fans rejoice: The picks (and pics) for this month’s Splatterama (a monthly double horror film feature, shown back to back, grindhousestyle): “Frankenhooker” and “My Bloody Valentine” (the original, uncut version, not the 3D remake; sorry I’m a snob). A surprise celebrity meet and greet combined with a live performance from Suede Dudes makes this event—wait for it—a scream! At 7 p.m. in Cinema Paradiso (503 SE 6 St., Fort Lauderdale).

oThink of the Vienna Boys Choir as the Boy Band of the Renaissance, established in the year 1498 by the Holy Roman Emperor (who, history tells us, was neither Roman, too holy, or much of an emperor). Still, the international choir of tenors and altos (which in German is known by the evocative name Wiener Sängerknaben) is one of the world’s best and most well-known choirs, and they will be coming to our neck of the woods, performing at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale, the scene of so much amazing Christmastime pageantry (301 E Broward Blvd, Fort Lauderdale).

Love Me Tender some Blue Suede Shoes in a Jailhouse, Rock

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Monday

oThe rock-funk group has gained ample notoriety after the release of their fourth studio album, “The Lion, The Beast, The Beat,” last June. Grace Potter’s voice has been compared to the likes of Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick, and is continuously praised for its quality and “electricity” (Glamour magazine). Potter and her nocturnal crew play the infamous Fillmore Miami Beach at 8:30 p.m. (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach).

oLord almighty—I feel my temperature rising! Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready to become a hunka hunka burning love. Elvis Presley was rock music’s unquestioned King (dude—he died on throne!), and two of his best impersonators—Scot Bruce and Mike Albert—bring all of his energy and moves to such legendary songs as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Burning Love,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” and many more. At 7p.m., in the Parker Playhouse (707 NE 8 St., Fort Lauderdale).

2/18

The First Crow is the Deepest oGrammy Award-winning singer Sheryl Crow performs her country/pop/rock hits “All I Wanna Do,” “Soak Up the Sun,” “First Cut Is the Deepest,” and the ultimate 90s angry chick song, “If It Makes You Happy.” At 8 pm., in the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts (701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach). THE WEEK continues on page 34

33

guymag.net


THE WEEK Not to be confused with the “Sebastian Beach Boys”

An Orchid for the Kid

oThe ultimate happy-happy-joy-joy guys, nothing seemed to shake the carefree vibe conveyed in the Beach Boys’ classics, like “Surfing Safari,” “Good Vibrations,” “Surfin’ USA.” Whether urging you to “Be True to Your School,” or singing the praises of some old speed demon broad (“Little Old Lady from Pasadena”), these dudes were the reason for your grandfather’s secret smile all through the 1970s (and you’ll still catch him doing it). Blonde surfers, white-crested waves, and clambakes— these Boys were from So Cal, but their lyrics and music screams So Fla (“Kokomo”)—both then and now. Surfs up! At 7 p.m., at Hard Rock Live (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood).

Tuesday

2/19

Cirque du Soleil: Totem if you Got ‘em oCirque du Soleil never ceases to amaze audiences, consistently envisioning performances with new themes each and every time. The Cirque’s eye-popping acrobatics remain the center of attention, and Totem proves to be no exception. See the worldrenowned performance group at 8 p.m., at Sun Life Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens).

34

guymag.net

oThe 2013 Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society Show is an evening of everyone’s favorite exotic flowers. Enjoy raffles, artwork, competitions, advice from plant and supply vendors, exhibits, and displays. With awards given out for different plant categories, there will surely be something for you to “faun” over. At 9 a.m., in the War Memorial Auditorium (800 NE 8 St., Fort Lauderdale).

Wednesday

2/20

Lincoln: Learn Why They Called Him the “Rail-Splitter” oThere is a small body of scholarship that suggests that the Great Emancipator was (in the words of biographer Carl Sandburg) a tad on the “lavender” side. FAU presents a symposium on America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, and the Civil War (which was fought 150 years ago). The keynote address, “Lincoln’s Constitutionalism and the Meaning of the Suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus,” is presented by Pulitzer Prizewinning author Mark E. Neely, Jr. At 3:30 (through February 21) at the FAU Auditorium (777 Glades Road, Boca Raton).

Prague II City of a Hundred Spires By Robert Elias Deaton

o

Nineteenth century philosopher Bernhard Bolzano had a mind that needed to account for everything. He was full of theories on religion, war, and social waste, and was happy to spout them to any who would listen. Bernard lived and died in Prague in the early 1800s, at a time when church spires were the tallest buildings in the world. And it is thanks to his counting of the local church steeples that Prague is known as the City of a Hundred Spires. Nowadays, that number is closer to five hundred, dominated by St. Vitus Cathedral (Hrad III. Nádvoří), the seat of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Prague and a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.  Along with the Prague Castle (Pražský Hrad), it is the most visited tourist spot in the city. Since St. Vitus Caathedral is part of the Prague Castle complex, it is possible for the casual traveler to confuse the two. So vast is this 18-acre maze of churches, palaces, chapels, and gardens that you’ll need at least a half-day to investigate even a small portion of this, the largest medieval castle in Europe. After reliably gorgeous evening sunsets, the nightlife of Prague takes center stage with gay clubs, bars, and saunas offering a tempting assortment of dance and decadence. Regardless of which club you select, be prepared to be handed a “drink ticket.” As you order drinks from the bar, your consumption will be tallied on this running total, which you must pay before exiting the place. Losing your drink ticket is a mistake best avoided, since the penalties are high and the inconvenience extreme. Our favorite club in Prague is Termix (Trebizskeho 4a), which at the moment also happens to be the hottest club in town. While Termix is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., it’s a ‘round-the-clock happening on Thursdays through Saturdays. There’s a dance floor and a dark room (which is exactly as nasty as you can

imagine). As you might expect, it’s NOT clearly marked. To find it, just head to the men’s room and follow the horn-dogs through the back door (in a manner of speaking). The famous Prague “rentboy” scene is now more history than happening. Yes, there are clubs where the boys are available strictly for pay, and make no secret of their going rates (which at last look was 2,000 CZK—Czech Republic Korunas, or just over $100 for an hour of time). Rentboys in Prague tend to be on the young side: The age of consent in Prague is 15! Club Temple (Seifertova 3,) is the more upscale of the two competing bars. The other is Escape (V Jame 8), which charges a 200 CZK entrance fee ($10). If you’re staying in the gay Vinohrady neighborhood and are searching for a fitness center, look no further than the Flóra Metro Station, where you’ll discover HIT Fitness Flóra (Chrudimská 2b). There’s a fully-equipped gym with free weights and fitness machines in a clean, straight environment that’s full of English-speaking guests and staff. A one-week pass is 315 CZK ($16), and visits are unrestricted. There is also a fitness room at the city’s largest gay sauna, Sauna Babylonia (Martinska 6). It’s the Prague version of a sex club, with steam, sauna, massages, and “relaxation cabins” (a/k/a trick rooms). There’s free internet here, as well as a full service bar, which is nice if you like vodka with your rub-downs. The club operates on a 12-hour day (3 p.m. to 3 a.m.), and gives the nickname City of a Hundred Spires a whole different meaning.

Dieting at Work and on the Go By Andy Kress

o

There are always far too many excuses why people on the go can’t eat a well-balanced diet. They are experts at coming up with a litany of reasons why their diets and nutrition are placed toward the bottom of their busy calendars. The irony, of course, is that these are exactly the people who should be most conscious of the fuel that will keep their bodies functioning properly at an accelerated pace. Life and work in today’s world leaves many of us pushed mentally and physically to extremes. Given the increased stress under which we all live, failure to take proper care of nourishing the body is just careless and foolish, for an improper diet not only leaves the body feeling sluggish, but actually slows your brain function and reaction times, as well. So the next time you skip breakfast, or are too busy for lunch, think about this: If you can’t move quickly and think productively, most employers have no shortage of candidates who are looking for work and ready to take your job. For those of us who are stuck at work all day with very little time to get away, your best line of defense against food deprivation (or lack of proper choices) is to plan ahead. Pack a lunch, snack, or whatever it takes to keep you constantly fueled for the entire day. It is essential that you eat small quantities of the correct foods throughout the day. Bringing your own food ensures that you will always have something on which to nibble. Preparing your food for the entire week at the same time ensures that you concentrate on your diet as a whole, rather than one meal at a time. Prepping your food ahead of time also makes it easy to throw something together throughout the week, making life faster and simpler for your schedule. For many, eating out is the most common form

of nutrition for the day. It’s true that dining out leaves us with many choices, but many of them are very unhealthy, so making wise choices is crucial. Fast food lovers should take the time to see how many calories and saturated fat is in the burgers and fries that leap from plate to mouth with regularity. Keeping your intake less than 500 calories per sitting is a great start, but keeping levels of saturated fat calories low is even better. Big plates of food are your worst enemy when try to stay slim, so ask the waiter or waitress to put half of your meal in a to-go container before they even bring your meal to the table. Eating the exact same foods gradually rather than suddenly not only increases your absorption of nutrients—it provides a continuous supply of energy without spiking high or low. Salads (without high fat dressing) are always a good choice if they are made from fresh vegetables and not combined into a mayonnaised mess. Rule of thumb: If you can’t identify the ingredients in any salad, skip it and order something else. Watch out for sugary drinks, “king-sized” anything, and side orders that are fried. Your active body and your busy mind will thank you.
