Puttin' On The Ritz

This weekend saw the return of the Heresy & Heelz 'Alternative And Burlesque Fair' to Manchester - but with a difference.  After being hosted for the last few years at the Sound Control club, it had finally found a new home - the(in)famous Ritz club.

The reason for the change was quite simple... the Fair had simply outgrown Sound Control, so I was looking forward to visiting the fair at it's new venue.  Unfortunately I didn't read the web page so turned up at The Ritz at 11.00am, the opening time of Sound Control.  With the Ritz being much larger, the opening time had been put back to midday.  Oh well - that meant an hour to kill, so I strolled over the road to grab a bit of brunch at the fabulous Gorilla bar.  I managed to get a window seat at Gorilla, and could see the entrance of the club across the road.  It was interesting to see a queue beginning to form around 11.30am - clearly others had not seen the new opening time, or it was going to be a busy day ahead for the fair.  Over the next thirty minutes I watched the queue grow, with, I have to say, some rather gorgeous girls adding some eye-candy to the proceedings.

Fully refreshed after my impromptu meal, I headed over to the club - even though there was still quite a queue slowly filing its way into the venue.

Inside the cool air of the club there was a riot of colour and styles - and that was just the customers and stall-holders before getting to the stalls themselves.

 As usual at the the fair, there wasn't just lots of interesting stands to browse, but lots of friends there too - which made getting around the event a rather slow process!  It was great to catch up with the staff from Latex 101 - the last I'd seen them was in Berlin, which already seems a long time ago.  With everything from alternative fashion to fetish covered, there's a lot of stalls for a girl like me to look through - even though these days there isn't too much that I actually need!

 There is of course is always entertainment too, this time provided by a few burlesque acts and pole-dancers.

 The compere for the afternoon was a rather lovely curvy blonde singer.  All I remember is that she had a great voice and a great pair of breasts that I'd have loved to have licked her scented sweat from, but I will try and concentrate a little more next time on what she is actually singing.

The Alternative And Burlesque Fair is actually a great place to spend a few hours, away from the identikit offerings of the Trafford Centre and Manchester city centre, and the Ritz is a brilliant venue for it.  It next arrives in Manchester on the 5th December after visiting Bristol, Sheffield, Glasgow and Leeds - it's already in my diary.

This week's Picture Of The Week is just a quick snapshot from the fair, but I do love those high-heeled patent leather sandals.  Speaking of my website, it has had it's six-monthly update, with my favourite pictures of the last few months.

I'm looking forward to some more events coming up this summer, so as usual - watch this space!
