Club Mwah: Ratsada noong holidays!
BY: DENNIS ADOBAS
Super-busy, fully booked, as in ratsada ang Club Mwah noong Kapaskuhan bago magtapos ang 2010! Punumpuno ang calendar ng lugar sa mga Christmas parties ng private individuals, top corporations, publishing companies, etc. Idagdag pa rito ang birthday parties ng mga VIP patrons, the most prominent of which ay ‘yong kay Girlie Abalos. Yes, talagang strongly established na ang Club Mwah as a party venue! Ratsada rin ang Follies de Mwah performers sa mga outside bookings, tulad ng corporate Christmas party ng isang top insurance company sa isang five-star hotel, Christmas party ng dalawang top corporations in Makati, etc. To top it all, sila rin ang nag-provide ng intertainment numbers sa FAMAS awards night sa Teatro GSIS last December 13. Bawa’t exclusive party sa Club Mwah ay may bonus full show ng Follies de Mwah, ang “Beddazled 9″ na nagtatampok ng sumusunod na production numbers”: “Showgirl” excerpt, “Real Woman Tonight”, “I Feel Pretty” (from “West Side Story”), “Under The Sea/Titanic”, “Mardi Gras/Rio de Janeiro Festival”, “Loving You” (Minnie Ripperton impersonation), “On A Clear Day/Maybe This Time” medley, Motown street murder, Disco Remix, “Dreamgirls” excerpt, “Putting On the Ritz”, “Mama Morton” (excerpt from the movie musical “Chicago”), “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” (Patti LaBelle impersonation), “That’s Entertainment” (Broadway number), “Shanti, Shanti” (Madonna impersonation), “I Am What I Am” (excerpt from “La Cage Au Follies”) and the grand, pompous finale! Ang Club Mwah ay nasa 652 Boni Ave., Mandaluyong City. Shows are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Para sa reservation, tumawag lamang sa 5322826 o 5357943.
Still on Club Mwah’s being a favorite events venue. Are you aware that Mr. Gay World 2011 international pageant will be hosted by its Philippine franchisee and that the venue for the final night on March 13 will be in Club Mwah? Hosting the Mr. Gay World 2011 pageant will be the Philippines’ King of Talk, Mr. Boy Abunda. This early, we can already imagine Kuya Boy’s witty and clever handling of the Question and Answer portion! The reigning Mr. Gay World 2010, Charl van Der Berg came to Manila first week of December together with the producer for some pictorial sessions, meet-the-press and launch of the AIDS Awareness program, the Red Ribbon campaign, last December 9. Also in attendance was the reigning Mr. Gay Philippines, Sherwin Abuel.
Four of Club Mwah’s “loyal” employees and performers are in the accompanying photo taken during Girlie Abalos’ 50th birthday (dubbed “Happy @ 50”). They are Mark, Maya, Tina and Philip.These four guys have been with Club Mwah for six years and they promise to Executive Producer Pocholo Malillin and President Cris Nicolas for as long as the place exists! Promise? Promise!
