Transcript 4 Montrose voice / Dec. 16,1983 Montrose Mouth By Amanda B. Recondwith Christmas is so-o-o-o close It's coming! Yes, it's coming! Can you see the lights everywhere, and feel the chill in the air and hear all the cheery carols in the elevators and corridors of our vast metropolis? Christmas is getting so close. I can almost feel the crowds pressing against me at the airport already! Christmas in Houston has about the same effect on the population as a hurricane evacuation. Well, for those of you who choose to stay in Houston this year, there is plenty going on—at least for those of you who live in the blessed area of Montrose! — □ — Our own Montrose Singers will be giving a wonderful Christmas program at 8pm Friday at St. Stephens Church, 1805 West Alabama. If you are not totally holiday'd out by then, drop in and listen and enjoy your very own neighborhood singers. — D — The Montrose Symphony Band will also be playing at 8pm Saturday at Cullen Auditorium on the campus of good ol' U of H. The Symphony is one of the best gay-oriented bands around, and if you've never heard it. you should go. — a — This Tuesday night is the third annual Montrose Voice Christmas Party and Public Spectacle at the Officer's Club Upper Oeck. This is a public event for the readers of the Voice (you) with a free beer bust, and disco by premiere Houston DJ Ram Rocha. It'll be 8pm to lam- be there (And, if we can twist your arm, bring $2 to donate to the Media Fund for Human Rights.) — D — Tickets are now available for GPC's "Night at the Alley," Friday, Jan 27—at the Alley Theater, of course. The play will be "Cloud 9." a popular off-Broadway comedy (see related article inside). Tickets are $12.50 and may be purchased at Montrose Hair Design, 1004 California (Now who would think thatagay organization would be selling tickets for an event at a hair studio?). Just so we ail may get political together, there will be a wine and cheese party after the performance. — □ — And now for a little Hoiidae Cheere. Greedy Seasons to Miss "O" from Princess Plastic Basket and Blanket B—of Taft Automotive. Oh, I love these quaint, dignified Christmas greetings. — o— There is something wonderful happening on Westheimer—maybe not for the drivers of Metro, but at least for those of us who take pride in our little community A group of merchants has assembled and formed an association called the OTC (On the Curve). It is a name that is only foo appropriate, since the shops concerned are all located on the bothersome curve between the 1300 and 1400 blocks of Westheimer. Among the shops involved are Creative Stained Glass. What's Up. Muscle Beach. Appearances, Nothing Sacred. Stop the Clock. Tiz Avenue. Creative Beveled Designs, Friday's Florist. The Dragon and The Rat. Facets, and East Texas Diner. The recently restored Firehouse 16 will be the future meeting place of OTC. Park that car and get out and walk for a change—abandon those massive parking lots and give up those plexiglass domes for real sky and air. Stroll along Westheimer and shop at what could become the first inkling of a major turn-around for this city's most colorful (and perhaps endangered) stfeet. — D — Poor Larry! We send our heart-felt condolences to your lip, after the accident at Mary's last Sunday night. It seems that Mr. Bagneris (prez of GPC) was helping unload a transformer from the roof of the building when it suddenly slipped and fell on his face, hitting him in the mouth—OUCH!! Hopefully there wasn't too much damage, and we have confidence that the community will continue to hear from you. despite your injury. — D — Really. Lola! Even us Housfomansfvile. uncul tured creatures that we are) were shocked to find out they would serve hot dogs and last year's lasagna at a tre' posh gathering in Dallas! Miss Gooch; ail of us in Houston are sure that you've already installed your birthday present from Slings /v" Things. Get out those Christmas sombreros Saturday night, ya'll! The Gay Hispanic Caucus is giving their big Christmas bash, "Dazzle 'Til Dawn." — a — Mary's has really outdone itself this year. The tree looks wonderful, and the crowd was so festive and in such good spirits. And what did we see but even some straight people admiring the tree. Well, if anything, this season brings out the best in all of us, and the great tree on top of Mary's is rather like a symbol that Montrose is a community unto itself. It is a beautiful tree. (I just wish we could tear down that billboard on the west side1) PARTY ALERTS: Saturday, Dec. 17: The Wright brothers flew their first successful flight today in 1903. It lasted 12 seconds and covered a distance of 120 feet—less than the wingspan of one of today's jetliners. But order an "Airplane" today at your favorite bar and raise a toast. Monday, Dec. 19: Today is the birthday of "Barbette," a famous drag queen of the 1920s and the inspiration for the movie Victor/ Victoria. "Barbette" (Vander Clyde was his real name) was born today in 1904 in Round Rock, Texas. — D — Slap Mr. Bray on the fingers, because he did some mistakes last week. Wallace Whitman is not Wallace Whitman—he is Wallace Whit- worth. Mr. WhitwonT? has just left the Houston Symphony, not the Opera! And Marilyn Roark played at Central Presbyterian, not First. Well, Amanda B. Recondwith will not make such silly mistakes in the future.
