Bar staff to be auctioned at Subline!

Besi Besemar February 12, 2013


The boys… errr men… at Subline in St James St, will be holding their Big Staff Auction this Saturday February 16, to raise funds for THT and the Sussex Beacon.

This is no ordinary event; auctioneer drag queen Wilma Fingado will be selling off the bar staff only to the highest bidder.

There are 8 lots to bid on of varying shapes and sizes from the post-modern to almost antique. As well as ‘winning’ the boys, the highest bidder will be whisked away with their date for a meal for 2 at one of Brighton’s most generous eateries. Meals have been donated from restaurants including Chilli Pickle, Oreganos and Smokie’s Grill.

Steve, the manager of Subline, says:

“We’re always looking to raise money for these 2 great charities, but at Subline we also like to have a little bit of fun. We’re thankful for the kind donations made by 7 venues in the city and hope that our regulars and new faces alike will join us to support the vital work of THT and the Sussex Beacon”.

Doors open at 9pm with the auction beginning after 11pm.

The catalogue for these lots and their back history can be found on the Subline facebook pages. If however you can’t attend but have your eye on one of these stupendous specimens, then contact Subline for information on online bidding (regulars only).

THT will be on hand with condoms, lube and safe sex advice. Bucket donations will also be accepted from those who wish to support these two charities, but who are unfortunate on the night, and get out-bid for their preferred lot.
