Five hundred and fifty of Michael Musto's dearest and closest friends showed up to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Musto's Village Voice column, La Dolce Musto. Party promoter Chip Duckett (Lifebeat) isused the invitation for the party that was hosted by Joan Rivers (the real Ever Ready Battery Bunny) and Michael Urie, a most un-ugly actor from Ugly Betty.

The festivities took place at the top of 230 Fifth Avenue (at 27th Street), a sexy two story party palace which features a roof deck with a convenient rack of red bathrobes to cover the near naked before their venture out into the cold.

Musto started his career by covering the cavorting at Studio 54 and the Studio spirit was live that night. All of New York fabulousities were in attendance: burlesque performers (Dirty Martini); female impersonators (Tommy Femia); drag queens galore (Epiphany, Sahara Davenport); the fabulous fashion designers, The Blonds; Broadway's Dame Edna (Scott Mason); Robin Byrd; and over five hundred of Musto's nearest and dearest.

It was old home week for New York's fabled night life denizens and the place to see and be seen.
