FTWK @ Tonic w/ the Eastern Bloc boys

God, I hate house. God, I hate Tonic.

So why did I have so much fun? And why did I dance till I sweated through my t-shirt, something I haven't done in a long time?

Despite the karate chop to where the sun don't shine (those damn searches at Tonic are brutal), every moment of it was great.

There's something amazing about walking into a place and seeing a bazillion people you know dancing up a storm without a care in the world.

I really enjoyed when Dekoze was on each time because he always plays really raunchy, sexy stuff.

If I knew more about house, I'd give a better review but all I can say is that it's nice to see a mixed crowd. I'd like to point out that there was an eerie absence of hoochies and a giant turnout of black wearing guys (I saw a couple grinding each other by the bar). The tv screens on the ceiling are a plus. And I don't think it was as packed as it gets usually.

I'd like to say hi to all the beautiful people who were present including Dora, Susan & Alex, Jay, Jake the Snake, Air Bag, Brian, Madnezz (who grinded me to the floor at one point, Orange Richie, Alchemy, Heather, Terry, Malia (sp?), Shauni (sp?), LURCH and a big hi to the hot bartender with the hat. Cuz of her, I finally understand why guys think girls are so hot.

Wow- what an awesome night!!!! HOLY TBK!!

Unlike SOME, I thought the music was great!!!

***BUT--- I had one really BIG BEEF. I have to say, tonic seems to take people's cash any way they can:::

I recieved an email telling me to email a certain addy for guestlist (which I did) AND I was also told that it would be free before 11:30.

Not only was I NOT on guestlist, but it was NOT free before 11:30.

Now, I don't really care about paying cover, but when someone tells me that there will be no cover, for TWO reasons, and it turns out that there IS- I get pissed off. It's just for ethical business reasons, that this SHOULDN'T HAPPEN....

Ok so I stuffed to the brim with turkey (dora makes the best turkey in a bag) and tiramasu (i make the best tiramsu in a box) and all of a sudden bam we appear at a near empty Tonic. "Oh well" i think to myself "private party" hehehe. So one drink leads to a shot, one shot leads to Hye buying me 3 and telling the ohhhh soooo hot "69" bartender its my b-day so she soes a shot with us then gives me a kiss :p Next thing I know the place is nicely filled the music is pumping and I am dancing with the greatest set of party people that you could ever ask for

COntrary to previous posters, I loved the music. Especially the techno (sorry folks, techno is not house). In fact, that was one of the most enjoyable nights musically I have experienced at Tonic because it was just so damned fun. Musical fun I say. Wicked to be around so many familiar faces.
I also can not complain about the fountain fight between the 2 increbily attractive bartenders near the loo.

My girlfriend and I said our goodbyes to the crew and then began to leave when Deko-ze teased Africa from Chemical Brothers. Despite the fact that I have seen Deko-ze 45834895 times, I somehow forgot that he likes to tease songs regularly in his sets and so all of the sudden we were still there 30 minutes later because we were dancing like villains.
Combined with the amazing show of Bassment Jaxx, tonight was a wicked night. If only there was a London Acid Techno Free party to go to after, I would have died and gone to heaven!

Rock on.

Fun fun fun...thank you so much to all the cool boys who assisted me in staying away from the not so cool boys that wouldn't go away - especially the old guy - ew

Great to see everyone out, and meet some new folks as well. Lurch - I believe you're referring to my neighbour Terri (dancing w/Brian)... she had a blast and loves all of you guys.

One more thing...I am Heather - Girl Friday is Malia...I know it doesn't make much difference 'cause we're always together however I'm a lot more into legumes than she is

Okay, so the music wasn't that bad. Had to pull out the junglist 'tude to not get Air-Bag on my case. Even he'll tell you I knew a lot of the tracks.

Laura, what's this about my sweater. girl? What was wrong with it? I haven't worn that thing in a year.

And it was SO grinding. The wedgie was an excuse to get me on the floor and you know it! Dora's guilty of this as well. I never laughed so hard! I was so intimidated by two beautiful women so up close and personal... Hehe. I mean, I wasn't trying to give you a wedgie. I was looking for a battle.

Thanks for the AMAZING laughs. I felt so euphoric when you guys did that. I was dying of laughter.

And next time I'm not going to attempt anything Alchemy. Then maybe I would've gotten a little farther down instead of the "fear of a wedgie" pull back.

last night was truly a reminder of why i party- great people, great music and just tons of positive vibes. after having so much fun i can just envision myself, a ripe old cougar partying 10 years from now.

with a mix of hard techy house with some familiar tunes and a moment of cheesy eighties goodness i could not stop dancing, and as an added bonus there actually was room to move without hurting anybody.

i'd never been to tonic on a wednesday, but aside from the guestlist problems i could see how a little midweek partying could be a wonderful source of release. as a venue it seems looks like it has a ton of potential even for other nights. the tvs on the celing could be used to provide for some really interesting visuals, but the dj booth is kind of high up.

big ups to: jake the snake, lurch, susan, alex, madnezz, mofo, jay, helen, heather, malia, jason, loress and a couple of other people whose names i can't remember due to that dirth drug alcohol! but it was nice to put so many names to faces. i think the whole club felt the tribe presnce.

a special thanx goes to our special hostess of the evening dora who is truly a diva (i can't wait for your next soiree)


eagerly looking forward to more decadence at nick warren

NO NO NO!!! Don't get me wrong- that sweater was gorgeous!!!! It's just that the side zipper was driving Dora and I crazy, if you know what I mean!!! *grin*

Don't believe chickpea, I eat waaaay more vegeatables than she does

PS I had an amazing time
Thanks for the hospitality Dora
Thanks for the rides Derric and Alex
Thanks to everybody else who was already metioned for making wed such a fun night
Oh yeah and thanks to Deko-ze and Jello for having so much fun behind the decks, had me smiling all night long

Aaaaaah...What fun...what party music...what splendid naked djs. Well...almost naked. If any of you didn't stop by the dj booth for a peek after about 2:00 AM, you definately missed out. And is it just me, or did the vibe quotient go through the roof in the place from about that point on or what?

I usually find that "For Those Who Know" kind of just fizzles out at the end. Not in a bad way - it is a weeknight after all. But no such fizzle on Wednesday. People were going off on the dance floor to the bitter end.

Craig played a nice casual opener; Paul Walker stormed through the place; Jelo & Deko-ze — pure back-to-back madness. Nice!
