My Experience of Escape on Surfer's Paradise :)
This weekend I went to the Gold Coast to visit my aunty who has just moved to the Gold Coast, and primarily to attend my oldest friend's, whom I've known and kept contact with since kindergarten, going away to Europe party.
So come midnight last light my friend, his friend and I decided to go to Surfer's Paradise - which was my first real taste of nightlife at Surfers and nightlife on a saturday night in general.
Since my friend knows and previously worked with the owners of the gay bar Escape, we decided to head there for the night.
I had a great time there - despite my shyness and nervousness I wasn't expecting it to be small, but it was rather smug I don't know if it was just for the night, but there were blow-up alien balloons everywhere, along with many glow-in-the-dark neon ribbon thingsw I rather loved that sci-fi-ish feeling that was going on hehehe.
The music was loud enough to rattle my rib cage, with all the laser lights flashing everywhere. I also got to see the drag show featuring Trans Formers(?) wearing some interesting Tron-like garb
What I liked most was the balcony section they had - it was a comparatively quiet and exclusive area, being two storey's up, near the beach under the skyscrapers, with Jupiter shining brightly above - making it all seem a bit magical
Apart from being at Sporties twice for the post-Brisbane Pride march night, this was the first time I experienced a bar/club on a saturday night after midnight.
I'll admit that the clubbing scene isn't really for me, I can certainly see the attraction of going out to places like Sporties and Escape for the weekends.
In concluding this unexpected novel (oops) I had a fantastic time at Escape this weekend.
Out of curiosity, were there any samesamers there on Sat 24th Sept? If not how many SameSamers have gone before?
Have fun everyone and enjoy the coming week!
