Party Pick of the Week: Plastic Fantastic!: The Grand Opening
Lina LecaroTaken at Nero and Rigal's former club Mr. Black. Luke Nero in the middle of 2 dancers.
8811 Santa Monica Blvd., W. Hlywd. , Saturdays beginning March 8, 10 p.m.-1 a.m.
Party princes Andres Rigal and Luke Nero have been ruling the interactive hot spot DBA on Santa Monica Boulevard with "Evita" Tuesdays. But they left another WeHo locale, the Robertson, amidst drama about who owned the name of the Saturday-night event "Rasputin: Russian Love Machine" (legal proceedings are apparently still pending and the venue has kept the party going themselves on Saturdays). That has left the pair's (considerable) following starved for their special brand of weekend wantonness.
Good news: The boys are back Saturday nights with Plastic Fantastic! at Eleven, with a grand opening this Saturday. DJs Aaron & Aaron spin shiny, sexy sounds and an array of "Botoxed bitches" (their words, not ours) take to the floor, including Jason Wimberly, Billy Francesca, Brad Hammer, Shirleen Mojica, Clayton Velasquez, Edward Vigiletti, Miles Davis Moody, Frank Mentier and Glamorous Monique.
The promo for this new party suggests a fun play on surgical perfection and Barbie-like bodaciousness, but if the duo's other bashes are any indication, we're guessing this one is less about being fake and more about being hard. Yeah, we said it.
