Strangercrombie Item of the Day

posted by on December 3 at 12:53 PM

Strangercrombie, our annual holiday charity auction, begins this week.

We’ll be auctioning off dinner parties, furniture, a fancy bicycle, bands offering to cover the songs of your choice (ever wanted to hear the Presidents of the United States of America cover “The Lonely Goatherd”?), and stuff like this:

Vodka and Sticks: The Banya 5 and Venik Lounge Adventure

A Russian afternoon of steam, vodka, food, and light beatings with sticks for you and three friends. Start with a healthful shot of garlic-and-hot-pepper vodka at Venik in South Lake Union. Proceed next door for steaming and soaking at Banya 5, the Russian-Turkish spa. Then back to Venik to revivify with caviar, pierogi, borsch, a sampling of house vodkas, and other neo-Russian delights. A whopping $1,500 value. Opening bid: $1.99.

Who knows? Maybe this guy’ll be there:


Strangercrombie: Once a year, we do something nice.

question: why is this model's pants like a Snickers bar?

answer: 'cause it's packed with peanuts/PENIS!

Can I just say right here at the outset that I had NOTHING to do with the selection of the models this year? Not that I disapprove, but I didn't see this guy until the photos came in. Wanna blame someone for the hairless twinks thing? Blame Kelly O.

Once a year you do something nice? Because of you update and put up slog, is another thing you do everyday that's nice for me. Gives me a reason not to shoot my coworker

oh, Dan...don't be so touchy!

The models humongous crotch bulge makes up for the lack of chest hair.

We're gay...we're shallow...and in the eternal game of gay rock/paper/scissors, big dicks beat EVERYTHING!!

Is The Stranger hosting a Hanukkah party this year? I'd love to know where the hip urban Jews in Seattle gather for gnosh and libations! Please consider a guide to local Temples for newcomers (strangers) like me.

That's a shame. She should know that Matt Powers should have been somewhere in the mix.

i lived in moscow for a year. trust me, russian men look nothing like that model. when they're not leaning over the gutter spewing a huge stream of vomit, they are beating on their women in a drunken rage.

At least pose him with a skateboard blank ...

And most Russian men nowadays die before they reach age 45.

I like "Once a year we do something nice" a lot more than "Redistributing your wealth since"

Posted by Lake | December 3, 2007 2:38 PM

Pretty much everyone agrees with you, Lake. Except me. I prefer "redistributing your wealth... "
