Apparently, all this city needs to rise from a recession slump is a Mr. Dressup tickle trunk and a whiff of vodka. The Contact Photography Festival fundraiser last night, Still Revolution, evolved into quite the animated Mad Hatter Tea when we raided Kealan Sullivan’s (Vintage 69) pop-up wardrobe to provocatively pose for the camera. However even more exciting than dressing up like a pickled Zsa-Zsa Gabor is the sweet arrival of leather jacket day. Oooh yes – the time has come to lose the goose and rock the James Dean. This weekend the streets will swell with cool dudes – just before green grass and flowers comes sex and rock n’ roll. Are you ready easy rider?

Saturday Night at the Movies
Hey recessionistas – stay in this Saturday night and tune into Music and Lyrics on W Network for some LOL entertainment.
Hugh Grant stars as a washed-up ’80s pop star alongside Drew Barrymore, his quirky plant lady with a knack for lyrics.
Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) has been reduced to working the nostalgia circuit at county fairs and amusement parks. The charismatic and talented musician gets a chance at a comeback when a reigning pop diva invites him to write and record a duet with her, but there’s a problem–Alex hasn’t written a song in years and he has to come up with a hit in a matter of days. Enter Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore), Alex’s beguilingly plant lady whose flair for words strikes a chord with the struggling songwriter. On the rebound from a bad relationship, Sophie is reluctant to collaborate with anyone, especially commitment-phobe Alex. Now, Alex and Sophie will have to face their fears–and the music–to find the love and success they both deserve.
Music and Lyrics Premieres on W Network on Saturday, March 7 at 9pm E/P
