|Me, Nick & Kevin; a happy triumvirate|
We were greeted by club owner (as well as music producer) Nick Lion with his usual warmth and graciousness. Nick is a real gentleman in every way and his taste is reflected in the sheer elegance of Icon's decor.
The club is virtually attitude-free with the sweetest, humpiest go-go gods you could ever imagine. It's like gay Nirvana!

And, hey! I know I'm vertically challenged but I would appreciate people not equating me with Truman Capote, thank you.
I spoke with the gorgeous Ms Carrera (nee Christopher Roman of Elmwood Park, NJ) at the rear bar (right under the gigantic, sparkling plaques of ladies' platform shoes). She was with a hot date and told me that being on RuPaul's Drag Race and RuPaul's Drag U was a great experience for her. She is now an Elite model, which is no surprise as this transgender woman is an absolute, flawless beauty.

Finger food was on hand during the festivities, like salami and cheese, though Kevin had served up that plus shrimp with cocktail sauce before we left Bay Ridge.

But, for me, personally, it was a place of warm friendships, old and new, and special endearments. And sexy go-go boys. Shirtless. In bowties!
Happy New Year!
