The following two events are celebrations of first, the founding of our great nation (that will soon be run by a woman … thank you, Monica!), and second, the founding of the much needed greater state of Utah … thank you David Archuleta! These days of festivity are honored througout the state, from public parks to gay bars, in which debauchery and unwise decisions abound. Go Utahomos!!
4Monday — 4th of July Celebration
23Saturday — Pioneer Days Celebration
Among the lineup of fabulous concert performances this month will be Eve 6 and Panic! At the Disco.

The two flicks noted here are attributed to my besties Donna and Michelle. Now, while their ears may be long, and Michelle may squat a pee pretty much anywhere in Brooklyn, “Weiner-Dog” is not directly based on them. They just happen to have two absolutely fabulous dachshunds, appropriately named Patsy and Edina. These two wild, boisterous females love their cigs, pills and booze, and bark with an English accent … ummm, the dogs, not my besties, of course!
