Indulging the Id: Boston’s Night of Guilty Pleasures

What happens when hundreds of Elite yelpers crash one of Beantown's premier gay clubs for drinks, dance, song and sweets? Chaos? Madness? Sparta?! This Thursday, Machine in Fenway opened its doors and started the pours for the cream of Yelp Boston's crop.

With two massive rooms o' cheer, our family danced the night away to booty shakin' favorites loved in high school and loved last week, as spun by the wonderful DJ Gay Jim, then bounced over to belt out a few tunes with the ulitmate drag karaoke hostess Eve Adams.

Rob, Daisy and the boys behind the bar slung house cocktails fashioned from Absolut and Smirnoff vodka, grape juice from Barefoot and a host of light beer – everyone's favorite guilty pleasure. Back Bay Social Club fed the masses with savory apple cheddar pies and meat candy, or as Andi P calls it, "the contents of God's punch bowl: brown sugar, pineapple, and kielbasa." Sweet teeth were satisfied by Cow & Crumb's mint chocolate chip and spice girl cookies, Dancing Deer's caramel pecan brownies and what Calli C calls "the definition of decadence": maple bacon donuts from Biba's Baked Goods. The snack so enamored Craig C, he "still has some stuffed down my pants for later." Magical!

Tatsu I captured it all on film – take a look! The reviews are rolling in and peeps are abuzz on Talk. Take the weekend to recoup, Boston; you deserve it.
