How couldn't you have? The company has been throwing the hottest young gay dance parties in New York City for OVER a decade.
And, if you read this blog, chances are that you know I'm the co-director and head promoter of the company, working alongside Alan Picus, its humble creator.
For the past 2.5 years since I joined up with Alan, he's made a lot of changes to this company in order to keep it timely, interesting, and exciting. For one, we created a new logo, which was sorely needed. We're on the verge of launching a BRAND NEW website to replace the one we've been using for the past 2 years. And we kicked off a brand new party, TWINK! Tuesdays at Splash, thereby allowing Campus Thursdays, our flagship party, to drop its "twink" vibe and grow up a bit.
Why? Because the gay twenty-something NYC/NJ/PA/Long Island crowd gets bigger and bigger every day. More and more gays are coming out (of the closet, and their houses in order to party). And they're far less of a liability than under-21ers who cannot drink.
I am writing this post today to inform you of our biggest update to BoiParty yet: we're growing up, and going UPTOWN!
In about 4 weeks, John Blair's brand new mega-club, XL, will be opening on 42nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. It'll be the largest club space in Hell's Kitchen AND the second largest exclusively gay club in all of Manhattan. And, naturally, BoiParty will be right there on the main floor throwing a party!
I'm more excited than I can even say. As a resident of Hell's Kitchen, I've always longed for a club to be within walking distance. We have no shortage of bars and lounges. But a dance club that can EASILY fit over 2,000 gays inside? (Seriously... it's 14,000 square feet!) We don't have one of those yet.
NOW we're talking. THAT'S what I call a Saturday night.
We promise you everything you've come to expect from BoiParty... minus the twinks.
We'll be continuing our Tuesday and Thursday weekday events at Splash as we ditch Club Heaven (which is closed any way) and head for greener, sexier, newer pastures.
Stay tuned, boys. I'll make sure you're the first to know when BoiParty.com grows up and goes uptown to XL Nightclub :)
