Only at West Hollywood's classic hair-metal Mecca,  The Rainbow, do you find 3 guys holding a pair of giant breasts who somehow look more bored than the woman does. With 2 hard-rocking friends in town from Cashville and Brooklyn, what better way to attempt to digest the Sunset Strip than to have Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy show up, and then have Ronnie James Dio's brother join us for some groupie love? This place has LOUD music, good food, and makes everyone feel like they're Too Fast for Love-era Crue (how do I make a fucking umlaut on this thing?) and Live like a Suicide-era Axl.

Ron Jeremy is more ubiquitious than Puff Daddy, although their similarities end on the sartorial tip. Mr. Jeremy, if you're going to be absolutely everywhere, could you at least change your sweatpants every once in awhile? Speaking of ubiquitous, that guy in the background never fails to materialize for an aggressive groping whenvever some liberated young gal's guns come out, from glam rock gigs to NASCAR rallies nationwide, ruining it for those who put in all the work.
