Short Takes: Chi Chi Sells Out…and More


Channel 1 Releasing will launch its first company store in West Hollywood. Named Chi Chi LaRue’s, the new upscale boutique will open on Santa Monica Boulevard in November and bring the entire Channel 1 catalog of more than 2,000 titles and products—including lubricants, condoms, apparel, photo books, calendars and sex toys—to a single location. “This is the first time a customer will be able to find every Rascal, All Worlds, Catalina and Dirk Yates title under one roof,” C1R partner Rob Novinger says. Director and partner LaRue adds, “This place is going to be over-the-top fabulous! I’m thrilled to be opening a store where customers can come and get the full Chi Chi experience.”…Pacific Sun Entertainment has been set as the distributor of Friendly Force, the directorial debut of former porn star Jamie Hendrix. The film stars hot newcomer Chad Clovis, Brodie Newport and Dominik Rider, and is currently available at www.gaymagix.com… New York party promoter Will Clark has announced a new location for his Porno Bingo event. Just last month we told you about the end of the party here, now Clark will move the weekly fund-raiser to Pieces (8 Christopher Street at Sixth Avenue) in the West Village. It will still run every Wednesday night, but the new time is from 8 to 10pm. Dust off those bingo cards, guys!
