Hot Lunch anniversary party

Posted by Emily Sweeney January 25, 2007 08:26 AM

Hot Lunch will be turning 1 this Saturday.

This monthly party "for queers and their buddies/ettes who want a strikingly sexy, radical and DIY alternative to gay nightlife" has drawn big crowds of all kindsa stylin’ people – straight, gay, bi, punks, preps, and everything in between - since it began back in January ’06 at the itsy-bitsy Reel Bar in Allston. It eventually moved to a bigger space at the Paradise Lounge, and expanded southward to da Big Apple last fall. It was voted one of the best gay-friendly nights in town in the 2006 Boston Phoenix readers poll.

hell, Hot Lunch even lured Lady Miss Kier (of Deee-lite fame) away from NYC to spin at one of their nights up here in Boston. And did I mention how much I love their punk-inspired/Party Monster-esque fliers?

I hit up Hot Lunch last summer, when it was still at its original location...

@ Hot Lunch June 2006

There was a loooong line of people on the sidewalk that night, waiting to smoosh into the Reel Bar to join the par-tay. It was a fab crowd. Fantastic music. Lots of fun.

well, Hot Lunch is returning to its Allston rock city roots for the big anniversary bash this Saturday, Jan. 27th....and this time it's happening at Great Scott, and the night's lineup includes ProCon, guest DJ Dirty Jean, resident DJs Sir Loins & David Dancer, video by Robotkid, gracious hosts Miss Nicholle Pride & Katya and the usual entourage of fab go-go dancers and party kids.

The cover is $10, but you can buy tix in advance for $8 – an easy way to save a couple bucks, and you can avoid having to wait in line.
