It’s a Lingerie Party and well.. where was the lingerie?
Well all my female friends here were dressed in corsets. Altogether in the club I could probably count about 10 or less females in corsets/lingerie including my friends – I wanted to perve on girls who I didn’t know! Nethertheless it was a welcome sight for pervy eyes. A shame there were not more girls dressed skimpily. They should have a club out there that has dress up themes every week! Oh wait.. that’s The Retro.
We busted each other
I went on a date with a girl a two nights ago. Tonight I saw her grinding with some random dude tonight, and she saw me granding with a girl. Our eyes meet, and it was totally not awkward. hahaha.. and yet I wonder why I am single.
The 2 hour grind
After being in the club for 20 minutes the girl who I was dancing with at Space, got bored and followed me here to Havana, and so I did my part and grinded with her and Daz for about 90-120 minutes.. sandwich style in the middle of the floor. Basically she would face me grinding, and then after a while turn about face and continue. EVERYONE in the club is staring at us. Some are smiling, and some are disgusted. Most are guys of the former category. You would think something further would happen, but it never materialised.
Video: 2 girls up on the podium shaking their stuff
After the arduous grinding session, the three of us leave. Friends were shaking their heads at me. C’mon, what is wrong with two guys and a girl leaving a club, holding hands?!? Gimme a break!!
Well tonight was a once off Thursday event – but it was better than Flow’s once off event on Christmas Eve – Would come here again. More people would have been better, but this was a pretty good turn out for Thursday – Similar to Space Nightclub – Entry price however should have been cheaper for a Thursday. Flow Thursday last year was only $10.
