Disco Biscuits

How's this for some serious personal style? The self-appointed Disco Bicuits -- Francois Palloux, Justin Cochran, Jason Barzel and Jerome Hermelin of Le Central -- got down with their badselves during the annual Turkey Trot race to benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies. And while Cat doesn't normally go looking for fashion icons at anything involving turkeys or racing, she just couldn't help herself with this photo. Especially because it's so reminiscent of the much-beloved Denver Kick Ball Coalition Commish, Joe Phillips, who abandoned us last year for L.A.

On November 16, the boys of Le Central competed against teams from Bistro Vendome, Warwick Hotel, L'Absinthe, Brasserie 1010 in Boulder, Smooth Jazz and SWS-CO, each of them pushing frozen turkeys back and forth in shopping carts. (Buggies Cat used to call them, having grown up in Colorado; but then she was mocked out of New York for the colloquialism, and carts they became.) The Disco Bicuits won the day (and how could they not in those short shorts), each taking home a prize three-litre bottle of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2006 in honor of the first wine of the harvest. The winery also donated $7,000 and 32 frozen turkeys to Food Bank of the Rockies.

Cat'll disco to that.
