We went to Patrick Range McDonald‘s birthday party in West Hollywood on Saturday. Here we are pictured with McDonald (in the middle) and Variety’s Ted Johnson.

Other notables at the party include Michael Weinstein, founder of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Mike Gatto, attorney and politico at Mayer Brown, Miki Jackson and John Walsh, who host Neighborhood Point of View (the cable access show), Japhy Grant, editor of Queerty.com, Rick Jacobs, founder of Courage Campaign, Christine Pelisek, staff writer at LA Weekly, Daniel Heimpel and Max Taves, freelancers at the Weekly Jill Stewart, deputy news editor at LA Weekly David Hernandez, longtime gadfly and public access producer Sabrina Venskus, environmental attorney, B. Daniel Blatt, blogger at GayPatriot.net, Tom Whitman, nightlife promoter, Nick Velasquez, Rocky Delgadillo‘s spokesman, writer Luke Thompson and Jim Hoffmaster, character actor.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was, of course, invited but didn’t show. Which was both disappointing and expected…just like his stint as mayor.

Oh, Just Dry Up
The Mayor must be take a lot of showers. But then, he needs to. And Rocky Delgadillo has got to get organized.

Villaraigosa’s Staff Knew About Affair With Salinas: Tax Dollars at Work?

Tabloid Baby, who really can’t let go of a story, reports that surprise! Mayor Villaraigosa was unable to attend the Pacific Palisades Fourth of July Parade. He was, uh, otherwise engaged. Idle thought: Rocky Delgadillo must be grinning from ear to ear.

Speaking of busy, how did Antonio-our-ownio manage to appear all over town and still keep Mirthala Salinas smiling? The LA Times claims that his staff knew about the affair for months.

November 2005 Villaraigosa was spotted at Salinas’ Sherman Oaks condo complex.

March 20, 2006 Salinas in NYC, covering Villaraigosa, talking educational reform with Mayor Bloomberg.

June 2006, Salinas in Sacramento, covering Villaraigosa as he lobbied for support of his LAUSD takeover. Photos of the two are taken, causing worry among his staff about leaks of the growing relationship.

September 2006 Villaraigosa is regularly seen at Cedars-Sinai, visiting Salinas’ mother, a cancer patient there.

December 2006 Villaraigosa loses his Deputy Mayor for Communications, Cecile Ablack. Hmmm. Sean Clegg, part of the inner circle takes over the job.

Perhaps the Mayor should have stayed with photo-ops like this.
