Sue-Bee turns 50 in style
Pish Phest Phounder Sue-Bee Lagniness celebrated her Phabulous Phifty in true style! The Abbey played host to the Dec. 27 bash The big bash and the marquee wished her a Happy Birthday. It also announced a special performance by Silkee Smooth! Watermark was informed the party didn’t stop and we’re confident it’s still going as you read this.

Donahoo plans to go elbow deep
Last year Watermark’s guide to everything Fringe was our “Oh My Gay” cover—featuring Logan Donahoo, who’s 2013 Field Guide to the Gays sold out nearly every single show. This year, Logan dives back into the lavender pool in Field Guide to the Gays 2! The original show touched on gay history, gay stigmas and even instructional ways to, well, receive. With a little bit of lube and a lot of laughter, Logan promises to delve deep into what he just touched on in the first show, but this time he plans to go in elbow deep.

Fringe parodies
At this year’s Fringe, expect a Wanzie revival with the Lion Queen and the naked go-go cub. The first incarnation appeared eight years ago and borrowed music from Lion King (with one-time-run permission from Disney). According to Wanzie, the new version of the show will have a new dound-alike composition by Broadway’s Michael Moritz, which is a great way to perform this larger than life parody and avoid a law suit from the Mouse! Also expect a take on Les MiserablesLay Ms.—which is re-imagined as a musical comedy set at the Stonewall Riots. Other shows will feature the return of a Scottish Drag Queen and Judy Garland. With nearly 17 LGBT theme shows, are they fringing on being too gay? Nah!

Peace, Love & Parking
The first weekend of 2015 could be a big one for the new Full Moon Lounge—or at least the property it sits on, which is called Woodstock. But there could be some issues with parking, according to owners. Woodstock told Watermark it had an agreement with Parliament House to use a parking lot that’s slated for the future use of The Gardens, a timeshare hotel. But Woodstock says that agreement has changed. We asked P-house owner Don Granatstein for an explanation and he said no such agreement ever existed. Granatstein was clear that he and the P-house welcome new LGBT businesses, but was very clear that the lot is for the resort.
