ALIG, Michael. Honey Trap.

[New York, NY]: Michael Alig, [1996]. Rare invitation for the opening of Michael Alig’s, Honey Trap, a club within the Mirage nightclub on W. 55th Street, New York. This was one of the last club kid parties. The title references the Federal prosecutors’ claims that Peter Gatien’s clubs, where Alig hosted most of his parties, were a ”honey trap” for drug dealers and users. The invite is an actual (unopened) jar of honey, with label listing the club kids, and event details. A rare item from the end of the nineties club era, Alig was soon to be arrested for the murder of Andre (Angel) Melendez, the Limelight had closed, the Pallidum was gone. There wasn’t much left to party about.
