Let's just call last Wednesday's Good Times party at Eastern Bloc the East Village reinvention of the Hacienda, since DJ Will and I gave acid house and warehouse rave beats that took tourists and locals who stuck around for the holidays to a higher state of consciousness.

Scott, Danny and friend (from right) opted away from traditional acid house neons and smileys in favor of a black and gray palette to match the below-freezing weather we've been having.

Taking a break 4 love.

Happy hour started very early for these three.

Steven (right) brought out his Brit Spider Man-clad friend, who insisted I return to Dalston Superstore and other London venues in 2010. You know, right after I tour France, Spain and Italy.

Jamie (right) says: Tonight it's party time, it's party time tonight.

Experiencing a major energy flash.

Sammy (left) is still substitute bartending for us at Good Times while Darren is befriending every pet shop bear in Berlin until early January.

When I started my set with Frankie Knuckles' Your Love, it inspired all kinds of naughtiness.

For some reason, Kelvin took 200 photos of Evans this week (center) and zero pictures of our awesome guest DJ, Will, who is equally as cute and charming as Evans. Sorry Will!

Naughty gingers need love too.

So due to the holidays, we weren't as packed out as usual but Eddie, Troy and friend can attest that the acid house jams were fieeeeeeeeerce. Every night might need to be acid house night in 2010.

Master of ceremonies (right) and a Santa Gant Man over in coat check, which is only slightly offensive to my jewish sensibilities.

Answering Todd Terry's eternal dancing music question: can u party? Yes we can.

Yes she is totally wearing a Holiday Inn tshirt and I am loving it.

Hello my fine grizzly man friend. Now is as good a time as ever to let you know that the next Good Times will be our Cher Bear Extravaganza (with Jimmy Im), perfectly tied to the holiday week where we kiss 2009 goodbye and say hello to 2010 in half breed style.

Chip (second from right) abandoned New York City in 2009 but is fixing up his comfy new home for 2010 in the gorgeous city of Baltimore.

Everyone loves a winter break from classes.

That houndstooth-draped dame is everything and then some. Actually, is that Pam Ann?

Baby wants to ride... rides for love.

The return of Aly (right) and Dino. Like the dinosaur.

Obviously wanted to avoid being in the picture but still wanted to show off that lovely watch he's wearing on his wrist.

I believe he was tripping into that Pacific State created by 808 State when this pic was taken. FYI - Eastern Bloc no longer uses those drink tickets you've been saving that match the wallpaper. Sorry!

What a pleasant surprise to see Marcell (right) out on a Wednesday night. We hear Marcell has set foot in la casa de Mariah Carey for a few styling jobs.

Jeff (center) and friends, all smiley to hear DJ will bring down the house with Gala's Freed From Desire.

While some of us will be counting down until the ball drops in Times Square this New Years Eve, others will be counting down until Kevin (right) shaves that big ol' lumberjack beard of his, which is due to be clipped any day.

Andre (left) and Luke, deep in vogue.

Scot, Evans and Charles as the father, son and holy ghost, respectively. And when I say holy ghost, I mean the holy ghost who haunts the Yves Saint Laurent retail store morning noon and night, since Charles NEVER gets a break.

Flex 'em if you got 'em Matt!

Jaeger bombs at the bar, courtesy of John the Vampire, aka JTV, always a refreshing face to see when you're well on your way to blacking out and its only 2am.

Cast shot for our upcoming Good Times gang bang porn. Adrian (second from left) and Darren (center) are still duking it out for the lead.

Now rehearsing for the role of fluffer as well.

Another year goes by and the gorgeousness that is Linda Simpson just keeps getting younger and younger. How does she do it?! It's like she's the East Village's answer to Benjamin Button.

Matt, reenacting the great J4 Good Times television disaster of '09.

Buddy (center) and buddies, having big fun at another successful Good Time.

If you don't wear a mesh purple top to next week's Cher Bear Extravaganza (or Cher's outfit from the If I Could Turn Back Time) video, we're calling this party quits! Bonus points for bears dressed AS Cher. See you there!
