supermondo-The finale of Project Runway season 8 left audiences around the world fuming when Denver designer Mondo Guerra left the competition with a controversial runner-up finish.  More than one year later, the fashion phenomenon and HIV/AIDS activist gets a second chance to claim runway redemption when the new series Project Runway All Stars premieres on Thursday, January 5th 2012 on Lifetime.  To celebrate his return to TV, Mondo will host Mondo’s All Star Thursdays—weekly viewing parties held at the Beauty Bar located at 608 East 13th Avenue in Denver.

Mondo’s All Star Thursdays offer Mile-high fashion enthusiasts the chance to join Mondo and share in the drama and excitement of Project Runway All Stars.  The evenings will feature special guests like fellow Project Runway designers Michael Costello & Peach Carr, and each viewing party will include games, activities, and prizes coordinated around a theme for that week’s episode.

Mondo’s All Star Thursdays are going to be amazing!” said Mondo.  “It’s not only a fun time for friends to get together and enjoy the show—it’s also like my thank you gift to Denver for all of the love and support I’ve received.”

Mondo’s All Star Thursdays kicks off the 12-episode viewing parties with the series premiere of Project Runway All Stars on Thursday, January 5th with special guest Michael Costello.  Doors open at the Beauty Bar at 6:00 pm and the show starts at 7:00 pm.  There is no charge for entry, but a suggested $1.00-2.00 donation will help support Colorado AIDS Project’s vital work in the community.  Guests will also have the chance to pose with Mondo and Michael Costello in a photo booth and Mondo merchandise will be available for purchase.

Join Mondo every week for Mondo’s All Star Thursdays as he competes to claim runway redemption starting January 5, 2012 through March 22, 2012 at the Beauty Bar, located at 608 East 13th Avenue in Denver.
