For our first Doggy Style of 2012 we're going on a little road trip! And by little I mean very little ... Doggy Style is moving up Park Avenue for one extra fancy night at Centaur! So everyone come out for a whole new audio/visual/homosexual experience tomorrow night!
Why the switch-up? Well, I have been friends with Centaur owner Sean Harrington for what seems like forever. It has to be 15 years now. He is a great guy, and we have worked together on many projects together over the years, most significantly my temporary (and soon to be permanent) store Hugh, where he served as very accommodating landlord.
When I came up with the idea of the Pride Project last year, Sean was one of the first people I called and was the very first one to commit to a sponsorship - for both Centaur and Town Pump - so I guess you could say he is the one who really gave me the assurance I needed that I would be able to pull together a reasonable amount of support. And obviously, that turned out great.
So as a thank you, I told him we'd do a Doggy Style "uptown" and hopefully spend a little of that alleged gay dollar up his way.
Those of you who have been hanging around the Detroit scene for a while will remember the Guerrilla Queer Bar events that were held at Centaur (there were two), and they were always great fun. So to kick off 2012 we're going to give a little love back to Sean, since really a big reason anything I've done in the past few years was remotely successful was because of his help.
Centaur is going to hook us up with special prices on drinks for the night! House pours are usually $7, but they will be $5 for the night (and their house pours are not junk). And if you've been meaning to check out the new Hot Taco in the old Hugh space, you can do that cuz they're open 'til 2! So come out to Centaur, the original home of the gay straight guy, and have some fun, Centaur Style!
