Lady Bunny Does Puerto Vallata

As mentioned earlier, my friend Carl Zablotney sold The Wire magazine to his long time editor, Thomas Barker, and went on to live his dream of owning a club in Puerto Vallata. He opened this week and flew down an even older friend of mine, The Lady Bunny to perform and entice the whole town. As a girl who loves foreskin and Valium, it was the perfect trip. Carl told me the opening was a tremendous success, as was the bawdy show Bunny put on.
Carl's club has several outdoor balconies, hence the name. It is located on the gay beach within a short walk to the ocean.

Carl was delighted with the renovation of the old building.

If you have ever seen one of Bunny's shows, you know it is filled with potty-mouthed humor mixed with local jokes. Most of the local jokes on opening night dealt with the many Lady Bunny impersonators in town. She wasn't kind.
Carl had to turn away people when so many showed up to see Bunny's opening night performance.

There was only a brief time to take a rest in the Mexican sun for Lady Bunny. After the show, she would have a tight schedule.

Bunny's first job was to make friends with the locals.

After getting a taste of the locals, Lady Bunny began her own Hillary-type effort to bring international diplomacy to the forefront (or fore something) of American policy. A brief exchange with a Spainard...

...led to a trio of Germans.

Until she was awash and surrounded by a group of Canadians.

Diplomacy does take its toll. Bunny was keenly aware that Valium is sold over the counter in Mexico; it was one of the first things she mentioned when invited by Carl.
Forget the drug cartels, kidnappings, and political upheaval. Mexico has a new icon, The Lady Bunny, to look up to (or down to as the case may be) and a new dance club and bar, The Balcones. Good luck, Carl; we'll see you soon.
