People are already setting up camp to try and be the first in the door at our new online shop, open for business at 4am EST on Friday. Lines are forming around the internet, so get your spot now.
We’ve got some limited editions and collaborations we want to share with you, including our Pendleton and Free City blankets, and Ace Havaianas. You can also get t-shirts from each Ace Hotel. We tell you all the stories about them in the shop.
We’ll keep adding more good stuff — stay tuned for exclusives, comestibles, stuff our friends are making, and new collaborations about to drop.
Our pride weekend wrapped up with an all-day pool party at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. Victor Rodriguez, NARK and Susan in Accounting kept the air full of good music. The Feel Good Spa was giving out free clay masks, so their was an air of earthy glamor to our lounging. We could keep telling you how great it was, and how, after four days of drag shows, pool parties, delicious food and sunshine, everyone was practically glowing. But we’ll just show you instead.
Noon to 4pm - Pool Party: Jer Ber Jones hosts DJs Honey Sound System and Susan in Accounting, plus performances by Barbie Q, Lady Bear, Phyllis Navidad, Tammie Brown and many more, with shot girl Wendy on skates
6 to 8pm - Queer Film Showcase: Two hours of queer art and short films hosted by Honey Suckle Hype, poolside and free to everyone

This afternoon by the pool at Ace Hotel Palm Springs, we were wowed by Honeysuckle Hype and Jer Ber Jones. Jer Ber’s twisted glamour and Honey’s cactus crotch just really did us in. DJs L.A. Kendall and Barbeau presided between shows.
Plus we had a photobooth in the yurts. We’ll be doing it again tomorrow afternoon, between noon and 4 if you want to come by and get your picture taken. We encourage you to test the limits of what can be legally posted on our blog.
Stay tuned for pictures from Trannyshack in the Commune. Here’s an appetizer.
