That was the perfect last Hotnuts at The Beaver, where we always felt at home. Thank you Beaver team & much love. Now, after 5 years, the magical carpet is going to take us to a new destination.
Thanks to all Genie’s for making last Friday such a special night and keeping the mirage alive. Watch Gentlelady Regina’s performance at the end of this post. There was a serious camera malfunction during Nancy’s XXX number (aka she is incontinent), so we can’t post it hurrr.
See you after the summer break at our new location in Dubai!
More pictures after the jump, gazillion more on the flickrs.

This is the last Hotnuts at The Beaver. After 5 years of fun, we’re sad to leave but also looking forward to new adventures. Hotnuts will be back at a new venue after a summer break.
Make this a scheherazadian night & dress up with us for Genie in a Hotnut: Return to Dubai! Let the Fata Morgana come down on The Beaver.
For this special occasion we have two performers:
Her first ever performance was on the Hotnuts stage in September 2010. Since then, Regina and the Light Fires have taken the city by storm.
She’s Proddy’s drag mother. We spent months convincing her to make the trip from Frankfurt and leave the home for elderly people behind.

That was the perfect 5th Hotnuts anniversary. Thank you all for dressing up and packing the Lobster Beach Resort.
Keith Cole’s performance took a couple of hours as he installed a Hotnuts birthday sign across the street from The Beaver. The scaffolding of the Bohemian Embassy never looked so beautiful. The audience inside couldn’t be happier: they got a shower of pink lobster spawn from Mary and me and hot clam chowder from Wilbur Junior. What more can you ask for, really?
Check out the pics after the jump, much more on flickr.

In the wake of the police going crazy all over town because of the G20 summit, it felt so right that Mikiki took the performance to the street and the back alley behind The Beaver. The crowd followed Mikiki around the block & M gave everyone rotten tomatoes to throw at him. By doing so he told us, we were killing his ego. He set an example for all of us.
It was such a fun night. Thank you for taking over.

Wow. That was a great 4 year anniversary party. Thanks for a fun filled night. Jamaica set the stage on fire. Her dj companion, DJ No Problem, provided distorted dance hall beats to “Jump Up And Wave”. The energy levels were through the roof! And Jamaica is one bendy queen.
Before and after Jamaica’s performance, DJ Mi-Nuh Care (@JeremyLaing) played the finest reggae and dance hall songs. One of the hits of the night was “Twice My Age“, with the wonderful lyrics: “I’m in love with a man nearly twice my age.” I also loved that Mi-Nuh Care played the annoying but fun “Rich Girl”. When I started djing, the dance floor was already cooking with hot riddims. It was all 4 to the floor from then on. I was so happy to finally play the Riva Starr remix of Royal T. And Circles.
Of course, Mary was up to no good with dem boyz & queens and caught a major shlong. So kai kai.
Peg, the drag baby (some say from hell), was in the kitchen all afternoon and prepared some yummy cookies for us. El Bear Ho couldn’t stop eating them and was kind of baked the minute we arrived at The Beaver. We had to pump one liter of Coke down her throat to bring her back to party.

Saturday night at Hotnuts Volcanic Asses. Fay Slift performed “It’s Oh So Quiet” and “Telephone” and shut air traffic down. There was so much enery on stage that a swan fell around Fay’s neck. So cute.
I wish I had a picture of Mary deep tonguing one of the birthday boys. What a present!
And even Ms. GuÃ°mundsdÃ³ttir came by to rim the volcanic asses. Just have a look…
More after the jump, even more on flickr.
