& Lace brings down the house at Barfly on Sunset Strip
Oct. 11th, Los Angeles: Our special party to
celebrate the 12th anniversary of the Mikuni and Performance Machine
sponsored Iron & Lace Custom Bike &
Pinup Calendar with famed photographer Jim Gianatsis
and the FastDates.com Calendar Angels was a wild
blowout success tonight at the exclusive Barfly dinner club on
West Hollywood's Sunset Strip. Our special guests included World
Superbike and Iron & Lace Calendar girls Janelle Perzina
and Taylor McKegney, Natalie
Abramov, together with many of the calendar's sponsors,
celebrity custom bike builders and their crew including Harold
Pontarelli of HD Performance, Russell Mitchell
of Exile Cycles, Don Chica of Chica
Customs, Roland Sands of Performance Machine,
and our own LA Calendar Best of Show winner Jesse
Rooke of Jesse Rooke Customs.

evening kicked off with a private dinner party at Barfly
for selected FastDates.com Calendar guests featuring the
builders' latest custom bike creations parked throughout
the club, and The Making of The FastDates.com Calendar Videos
playing on the big screen above the dance floor. By 10pm
the club was really jumping with hot dance music and beautiful
girls everywhere! 10:30 and the club was packed to capacity,
people were waiting in line to get in, pleading to bribe
the doormen above the $20 cover charge if they weren't on
the Iron & Lace complimentary guest list.
really broke loose inside when two perfectly blessed Playboy
models ascended the go-go podiums and shook their incredible
booties to the music's beat in nothing more than lace thong
underwear and 5-inch platform boots. It was pandemonium,
festivities and decadence beyond that of the old Roman empire.
Iron & Lace Night party was filmed as part of a special documentary
on builder Russ Mitchell for Spike TV. The girls of Los Angeles
definitely dig custom bikes and bikers with our calendar builders
having hands full, literally, keeping all the hot spectator chicks
off their bikes -each of them wanting to full fill their secret
fantasy to be a sexy calendar girl, posing for there friends'
Iron & Lace custom builders were even more enthusiastic fighting
the girls off themselves. No one went home alone, including one
celebrity builder (who shall remain nameless) who was lip locked
and chugging shots with one particular beautiful young lady until
they both were so inebriated and unable to function they had to
be stuffed into a taxi just halfway through the evening. Word
has it he had no memory of anything that happen at the party when
he finally woke up late Sunday afternoon. Another builder finished
off his night giving lucky girls bike rides down Sunset Boulevard
on his $80,000 open piped calendar bike at 3am in the morning
after the club closed.
the end of the night the consensus from everyone attending was
our Iron & Lace Night at Barfly in Hollywood
was a huge success and it needs to return on a regular basis.
We're investigating now the City of West Hollywood's morality,
public safety and noise statutes, as well as consulting with our
attorneys, and will let you know as soon as we sober up.
with Chica features hot new models and bikes!
