Leaving the Station voice PLACE YOUR FREE AD NOW! CALL 877 863 1885 OR PLACE YOUR AD ONLINE AT WWW.H0UST0NV0ICE.COM THERE WERE PLENTY OF PISSED OFF D.C. queens in Baltimore last Saturday night — the night that the Grand Central nightclub was scheduled to hold a JANET JACKSON vs. MADONNA dance party. The Blade wrote about the unique event back in October and confirmed that the party was still scheduled on Tuesday, Dec. 2. Even the doorman taking the cover charge said that the Janet/ Madonna party was happening. However, lo and behold, there wasn't a Janet or Madonna song to be heard inside the club. Nor was there a crowd, but that's another story. Dish has it on good authority that plenty of D.C.'s gay boys were excited about the event and some even booked hotel rooms to spend the night in Baltimore after shaking their groove things at the club. Apparently, employees at the newly renovated $1.4 million venue decided at the last minute not to hold the event. "I don't know what happened," said Grand Central owner Don Davis. "There was a serious communication problem going on, and I was really embarrassed by it. It doesn't make us look good for a mishap like this to happen. It's not professional." Davis apologized profusely to anyone who came for the special event. He said that a rescheduled date is in the works and that new procedures have been put in place so that a communication breakdown doesn't happen again. Final quarter THERE ARE GOING TO BE A LOT OF empty gay coffee tables this holiday season. It was announced last week on CBS's 60 Minutes that retailer ABERCROMBIE & FITCH had pulled its latest edition of A&F Quarterly, the store's catalogue/softcore porn magazine, from shelves amid protests that the magazine was too erotic for the young market the company courts. On the "60 Minutes" episode, a news anchor said the A&F Quarterly apparent ly offended social conservatives, who complained about the risque photos. But the segment primarily was about a lawsuit former A&F employees of color have filed, alleging that they were fired because of racial discrimination tied to the company's efforts to portray a certain image. That, of course, is why gay men loved it. Often featuring photos from gay photographer BRUCE WEBER, A&F always delivered plenty of pictures of hot, young. Bruce Weber scantily clad men, often in homoerotic positions, Now it seems the magazine may be done for good. An unattributed quote on the gossip Web site Gawker.com says the retailer is ceasing publication of the magazine entirely "I work on the A&F Quarterly and as of yesterday [Dec. 8] it was announced to us that it will no longer be continued," the source said. "Several employees here in New York were fired by A&F because they will no longer be needed." A flack from A&F didn't return calls by Dish's deadline. Looks like the boys will have to go back to HONCHO. Bless her heart DISH IS STILL GETTING OVER THE SHOCK that CHER listens to C-Span, as she told you a few weeks back. However, if the grand diva, who staged the world's longest goodbye tour, is going to be political, at least she stands on the right, err left, side of the political spectrum. The New York Daily News reports that in an interview in the upcoming issue of Us Weekly conducted by "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" fashionista CARSON KRESSLY, the star says that she would love to be a conjoined twin with U.S. Attorney General JOHN ASHCROFT. "So I could influence him a bit — or beat the shit out of him," Cher says. Kressley asks her if she would ever be a Republican. "Are you kidding me? I'd rather stick needles in my eyes," she replies.
