At about 4:30 pm Tuesday afternoon, a fire started at Micky's in WeHo, which quickly engulfed the upper part of the building. Dozens of firefighters showed up, closing down Santa Monica Blvd for several hours. The good news is that no one was seriously injured (one queen was rescued from the 2nd floor & sent to a local hospital, but he's ok), and neither of the adjacent businesses reported fire damages. Micky's is badly damaged...the upstairs suffered the most, but unlike Lindsay Lohan, Micky's is not a total loss.
I feel awful for the staff & especially for the Go-Go studs, who've depended on Micky's as a source of income...looking back, I now realize that I should've tipped the boys a little more.
In an ironic twist to this story, Micky's float at this year's Gay Pride Parade featured Go-Go dancers on a fire truck, with a banner that read: "Micky's - Flaming Gay Bar."
