An Ace that I Could Keep

Gram Ponante
The Adult Celebrity Poker Tournament, coordinated with the Novelty Expo at the Pasadena Hilton, drew about ten adult celebrities. Even adult celebrities who were listed as coming had never intended to come, as they already had plane tickets to the Caribbean in hand when the poker flyers were printed up.

That said, the air conditioning was fantastic, as were the snacks. And the adult celebrities who did show up (check the gallery for coverage) were of the top-notch variety.

Of the recent Free Speech Coalition Night of the Stars event held at Hollywood & Highland, Bill Margold told me that it had taken "33 years to cross the street."

The little office at 6912 Hollywood Boulevard "where X started" was right across the street from what became Hollywood & Highland, hosting a talent agency and studio space from 1972 to 1983. "No one remembered this the other night," Margold said.

There was a man associated with the adult novelty market who approached various porn stars, asking to be photographed as they rode him like a horse.

Eligible bachelor Harry Weiss wore a voluminous Big Dog red Hawaiian poker shirt presented him by Cytherea.

I don't know who won the match. Perhaps one of the 400 guys there?
