Friday, January 20th: Reverend Jen Presents: The Thirteenth Annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant

Reverend Jen Presents: The Thirteenth Annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant
Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery, Manhattan)
9:30pm signups, 10pm start
$7

It’s that time of year again – The time when snowflakes fall gently onto the crumbling sidewalks and dudes who haven’t seen the inside of a gym in over a decade suddenly want to look buff for the laydees…That’s right, it’s time for the annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant whereupon the women and gay men of the Lower East Side choose one lucky man to rule the area south of Houston and east of Bowery.

The 13th annual Pageant will prove to be an extra-glamorous extravaganza, similar to the Ms. Universe Pageant, if all the contestants were hairy and liked Budweiser. To compete in this cutthroat pageant, contestants need not live on the Lower East Side. (Because honestly, who can afford it anymore?) They simply must possess qualities, which would make them the proper representative of this neighborhood. (What those qualities are, I am not quite sure of…) They also must prepare for the following competitions: A 1-minute talent competition, a swimsuit competition, evening wear and question and answer.

Contestants must show up at 9:30 to sign up! Or they should e-mail revjen@revjen.com for details.
