I briefly visited last night’s soiree for Village Voice columnist Michael Musto at 230 Fifth. The main idea was to celebrate Musto’s 25th anniversary as a Voice columnist (“La Dolce Musto“); it was also a friends-of-Michael, Mardi-Gras-like gathering with all manner of exotic attitude and flamboyance, including a good 40 or 50 tranny-glammy cross-dressers. Joan Rivers did the opening intro; Murray Hill emcee’d. Performers included Dirty Martini, Bridgett Everett, Tommy Femia and Vodka Stinger.
