Oops - I forgot to post New Year's/Hooker's Ball info here! Just wanted to say how glad we are to be able to throw one of our usual New Year's parties this year, and keep the price normal too, given all the price-gouging and venue problems that other nights have had. Special thanks to Micheline and the staff at CBs for this, and we look forward to seeing you for this one!

JACKIE 60 FURTHER's annual celebration of The Sporting Life and the well-turned trick returns on New Year's Eve at their comfy East Village headquarters. This year's edition is dedicated to the Godmother of all Working Girls, XAVIERA HOLLANDER, and the Red Light district of Amsterdam, her longtime home. (This year saw the thirtieth anniversary of publication of Hollander's seminal tome THE HAPPY HOOKER.) THE HOUSE OF DOMINATION will be creating all of the Method GoGo performances for this night and we invite all House members past and present to attend!
The stage will feature the famous windows of Red Light Amsterdam, for a marathon of High Hooker go-go and specialty XXX shows courtesy of the HOUSE OF DOMINATION, including DOLLY, LILY, BETTY and AMBER DOMINATION as Xaviera Hollander. Their superstar guests will include the astounding ROBERT FLOWRYDER as the Dutch Policeman. Other highlights will include Empress CHI CHI VALENTI reading from THE HAPPY HOOKER set to a high Seventies Sleaze Disco soundtrack by DJ JOHNNY DYNELL, and Red-Light Seventies striptease by LADY ACE of BOMSHELL at 1:30. A Virtual Peepshow installation by ArtMaker TONYA KNUDSEN, "Dutch Pumps, Glass Doors Und Blond" will be created for the night for viewer's interactive pleasure.
THE HOOKER'S BALL NYC was born in 1999 at the legendary JACKIE 60 to lament the end of streetwalking in the Meat Market neighborhood. The last Annual party to be born at Jackie 60, the ball has taken place every year since, and moved to New Year's Eve in 2001. JACKIE 60 FURTHER ball producers CHI CHI VALENTI. KITTY BOOTS, HATTIE HATHAWAY and JOHNNY DYNELL acknowledge (and hope to live up to) the rich history of HOOKER'S BALLS of yore - including MARGO ST. JAMES and her San Francisco editions 25 years ago. Like those events, this is a truly MIXED crowd - something, and someone, for everyone.
