Transcript 2 The Star / March 23, 1984 San Antonio Soap By Helen Dish Totally Out of Control I simply must get out of bed sometime this afternoon. These bars in this town are simply destroying all concepts of self-preservation They're so fabulous that I refuse to sit home and watch the 10 o'clock news. Plus, no one's going to come knocking on my doors. You have to catch Prince Charming when he's on horseback, and my entry way is not that big (big—but not that big). Part of this dreadful headache I'm nursing this afternoon is from my hot evening over at Roomers (formerly "Cahoots"). Scotty Roberts has really fixed the place up with NuMusik and NuLites and it's all too much for me. I could get addicted to the place. And if that's not enough, I could get addicted to the men who go there. My, god, Scotty, are you trying to kill me? If I don't die at your place, I might die at Snuffy's- ' mean, how much champagne can a girl drink? Let me tell you, honey, I drank gallons at their fourth anniversary party last weekend. Gallons' The Mustang Band was wonderful. I had to have a fresh glass of the bubbly every- time they struck a new tune. What was the name of the last one, fellas? Oh, by the way, Roger, did Prissy ever get you that cup of coffee with your rolls? —a— Okay, my reputation is ruined. I was at the San Pedro Connection last weekend and had a marvelous time So why is my reputation ruined? I spent most of my time there in absolute lust looking at Robert the bartender. Now all the world knows how I am! But I'm going to sneak back in Sunday afternoon and clean up my act Classical music is being played from 2-5 and I will absolutely force myself to behave. — D — I think I'll cut back on my booze a bit and try to be respectable over at Our Place which is packaging some nice things for us this spring. Sunday, they're having a benefit for the Rockin R's, and don't forget their logo contest deadline of April 1. Call 340-1758 from 4-6 for info. — D — Robert, should I really ask you wnafyou were doing on the floor at the 2015? — a — Well, if I can possibly stand it, I'll lay off the booze and get in shape for the Fiesta Run '84 to be held April 27-29. For more info on that affair, write Box 169672, San Antonio 78280 The run will open with a Down 'n' Dirty Denim Contest Oh, god. There's that word again: "dirty." I'm sure to lose control again. Austin Soap By Tututu Devine Spring is So Fab Up Here I'm just sitting up here in my lake house overlooking the beautiful blue waters of Lake Travis sipping Dom Perignon and dreaming of that wonderful lavender silk gown I'll be wearing this evening when Joan Collins drops by for dinner. We've been wanting to get together ever since our little tea on the Rive Gauche, but I just have not been able to work her into my schedule. But now that the red bud trees are blooming and bluebonnets are stirring up my longings for my dearest friends, I'm sure I'll find time to stay in town at least a few days to catch up. —a— White I was in Rome, Agatha, my dearest, dearest maid, said that this wonderful city of ours has just been bursting with excitement. One wonders why I even have a passport! —a — Agatha says that two new hot spots are opening which will definitely titillate our desires for things we have never had before. One is Oz, which conjures dreams of Emerald City, and the other is Uncle Charlie's, which sounds like a nice place to meet interesting people. Thelma Houston will be opening Oz this weekend for Bltl Huber and Tom Sweeny with what Agatha says will be a super show. Also Jimmy James will be there. And if you haven't seen Jimmy James, you've missed one of the world's greatest illusionist. His Marilyn Monroe had me convinced that our beloved Marilyn had returned from the dead. Then she's really never died, has she? — D— I also understand that Austin's Megabar will be opening Dale Owens and Randy Speights are promising great food, great dancing, great food, great fun, great food. Oh, excuse me. This champagne is making me famished. Anyway, Agatha says that the boys are planning a Coke dance for Sunday at 5pm, a wet jock- short (heavens!) contest on Mondays and a Rock 'n' Roll evening on Tuesdays. I'll simply have to dress in something chic and pay them a visit. I have just the dress in mind. — D — Agatha tells me that while I was surveying Capri's delicious men, Austin has been looking at their own personal hunks at the Green Parrot I must say that Texas has its share of beautiful men, but I just can't believe that they're alt at the Green Parrot I just can't believe it, can't believe it. can't believe it. I'll see you there this weekend. If not, I'm sure to drive my limo by Monday through Thursday. Can you believe that Gary has happy hour from midnight till closing? Why, why drink alone? Agatha tells me that Backstreet was so incredibly hot last weekend that the Fire Marshall got alarmed. Not that any laws were being broken, it was just the steam rising from that place. Quite frankly, Agatha hasn't been worth a damn this week. All she thinks about is getting back to Backstreet Can too much of a good thing be bad for you? And I'm not talking about the hot dogs. — D — I must admit I did hit the town this week. I just couldn't resist Dirty Sally's on St. Patrick's Day. Now if there's anyone in town who can possibly get the green out of my fabulous coiffure, please let me know. — □— Oh, my godl Agatha just told me something about "hairy balls" every Monday at the Crossing. 1 simply won't touch that. Ask Daisy. And what's this about Martians pulling on Ed's ears? I seem to remember a joke I overheard while in flight to Paris about that one I won't repeat it here. —a — Okay, Tututu must let her hair down on April 6 and 7 when the Hill Country Leathermen hold their first anniversary party at the Back Street Basics. Just wait until you see what I picked up in Translyvania to wear to their "Black and Bluebonnets" fete. If you want to finally meet me, Tony Rlhn is taking reservations through the mail at Box 595. Manahacoy, Texas 78652. Do try to come. My god! I start dilating just thinking about it. — D — But stop this. I simply must clean up my act. I think I'll go over to the Oasis Ministry this Sunday and try to become a better person. Their service begins at 11 am. Expect to see my Mercedes at 7109 Highway 290 East. I'll be in Suite C. Talk with Joy (441-9191) or Mark (834-8357) for more inspirational inspiration. It's so nice to have a place like the ministry to go to when the world just gets too much for you. And it does sometimes. Even for me. But I mustn't let Joan know that. Good Luck Marcial in the : Gay San Antonio Pageant Also, don't forget our Sunday Brunch, noon
