Transcript BOOTS IS BACK! BOOTS IS BACK! And in grand style too. With an all-new bar(THE GLASS STEIN) and an all-new show to back him up, and one of Houston's prime locations. In a conversation with Boots, he explained some of his plans as follows: "First of all, my bar is going to be different. I'm going to have the best of everything, especially showsj here. And I'm just starting. For example, I think I have the best manager in the business working for me. Rod Gough, who is good-looking and good with people. Everybody likes him. I'm getting the best performers available and definitely making this a SHOW BAR and one for people to I REMEMBER...forever! Because I'll have the best impersonators in town! For example on the head of the list is Edie. and there's no-one better; Stef is with me and the others are going to shock the hell out of the audience with MEW IDEAS. Even the stage is going to be illuminated different going to be illuminated differently- This is definitely a show bar and I'm going to make people want to fight to get in here when we pack them in. The impersonators will be that good. Then you know Joe Rice. Well HE'S THE ONE DOING MY SUNDAY BRUNCH. And after eating his food, there won't be another place people will want to go. He's terrific with food. And the kids that know it already are my best advertisement. Eggs Benedict with a drink is what I'll be giving. for $2.00. I'd like to see Gays pass that one by. Then... I'm putting in a new dance floor that will be attractive, and special." When asked about his plans for HALLOWEEN, boots replied: "Well first of all. this will be the ONLY bar people will enjoy thatnight, because I'm being different and I'm not going to be overcharging anybody either. For example, my tickets are going to be sold in ADVANCE for only $2.00 --to guarantee a seat for that night, and only $2.50 at the door Halloween night for everybody else. The difference already there is the saving of 50C by buy- in advance instead of charging a HIGHER price for a reserved seat. Then the categories are going to be something else: BEST FEMALE IMPERSONATOR; BEST FEMALE IMPERSONATOR COSTUME; and then BEST ORIG- Must bo open season on car salesmen this year.One recently came close to having his hooter blown off when he invaded a prospect's apartment in the company of an alcoholic roomate; not lady-tike at all, girl-brush up on manners' Girls you'd better hope it don't rain on your parade Halloween because the muddy streets in front of "that place" that nite might just bog you down deep enough to lose your high heels; and you KNOW el cheapo won't carpet the street for you. Tex and Joe are doing a great job with the Bon SOIR. Even Bob strangerfriend is going there again. Speaking of strangerfriend he's driving a pick-up these days, what happened to the caddy? That duck has waddled out of Dallas and now reposing in NASA these days. Did he make his million yet? SUPER DYKE where are vou? While she screams poverty and sells junk(among other things) we can't find any sympathy for her. Even though it IS expensive to store limosines these days... James Proctor, congratulations on your good taste; we hope you'll like your new job. We LOVE the place... 1U UGJXjdCeXMI we/co**e* pm fo tfte fetett fan U Z><x&x&. Textu FEATURING: Mixed drinks . Dancing Live entertainment %^%W<^4 1~7pm. Enjoy your STOLEN chandelier girl; your friends must really approve of you...if you really HAVE any...do you? We're finding it tough to find one by a name we can print. You're much better looking without your beard- But now, why not cut your hair and quit wearing those ridiculous short pants? The gentle rivalry between the steam rooms is refreshing! The local bar owners could use the example they set. What doctor lost his cap at a certain lounge last week-a fast face to the floor in desperate search made it appear he was drunk and was then tossed out by alert bartenders; before he could explain his plight...wonder what the clean-up man thought the next morning when he found that cap (you know, girls, the little thing the dentist puts on your teeth?) Steering her antique ship down Richmond for so long now, affords him the luxury of a new mercedes and she's proud of it. So are we., when a queen learns to mind her own business as well as she, she deserves it. The two Johns just celebrated their first year of marriage. Who would EVER have believed? INAL MALE COSTUME ON A MALE. People can call me for fu- rthur details." Boots then went on to talk some more about the show at the Glass Stein. "Well, I think people are just ticed of seeing bad drag. The Glass Stein is going to mean good IMPERSONATOR SHOWS; and" not just drag shows. The stage is going to be a knock-out with special lighting effects, runway effect, and things like tha. The sound is going to be great! And on New Ideas, I feel HALLOWEEN is going to be different here, too, because I feel that Houston's best female impersonators are right here on my stage, and for that night I'm getting qualified judges that will not know ANY of them, so I'm giving Houston queens a chance to enter and compete with the best. And if any of my kids lose, should they care to enter, it's the same risk they'd take anywhere else they'd go that night. But...to the kid that WINS over my performers, it'll really MEAN something! Because everyone will know they are the best And in the event you don't Know this contest is open to everyone At first I wondered about letting my kids enter but then I figurec the contestants would like to go up against some REAL competition and honest and impartial fair judging to give everybody a good chance at victory. And I'll tell you right now, my kids will stand no better chance at winning than anyone else off the street! The JUDGES won't know ANY of the contestants. But the shows here at the GLASS STEIN is what I'm pushing. It's going to be THE show bar in Houston." And it looks as thought Boots really means business too, as shown by the fact he employed BOBBY SCOTT(one of the town's best light and sound men) to handle the light and sound equipment. The GLASS STEIN has already begun showing marked signs of improvement just since Boots has had it; actually, Boots was instrumental in first opening this bar together with Doug and Ann but later left for other ventures so this is really a homecoming for this dynamic promoter. Boots has been anxious to be , come,the Glass Stein's lone own er since its .inception, and now it appears, it fondest wish is ful filled. One reason Boots felt it was necessary to own, rather than manage the place, was so that he could express his ideas wholly, and without compromise with an owner who mayjust make certain 'concessions' but not be in full favor of ideas or pro motions. Sometimes this can be dis-heartening, when a plan is created but only partially evolved. Now, with his own pocketbook at gamble, Boots is back at it This time with his own formula for success. Congratulations! The Gay community wishes Boots and his GLASS STEIN every success in all it endeavors to do Page 9
