Homme Send-Off

Better bid a fond farewell to Homme Lounge, 138 West Camelback Road, as the CenPho danceteria/gay bar/hotspot is shutting its doors for good after this weekend. But before co-owners Jeremy Johnson and Terry Walter turn over their keys to the landlord, the joint's gonna go out with a big-ass bang involving two straight nights of dance parties. It starts on Thursday, November 26, with Wobble Gobble, where Homme regulars Benni Beatnik and Kevin the Makeout Bandit will be joined by Ninety-Nine and Hussy Hussy on the mixers for a post-Thanksgiving throwdown. The curtain will then come down the following evening on Friday, November 27, during the final edition of Party Foul! (for the time being, at least) where DJs Bigie, Craig Citizen, BC/AD, and a slew of guests will put on a supersize swan song. Feel free to drink up a storm at either occasion, as Johnson says they'll be selling off every drop of liquor in the house. Doors open at 9 p.m. both nights. Call 602-234-3023.
