Jackie 60 (1990–1999) was a famous weekly party held every Tuesday in New York's Meatpacking District. Founded by DJ Johnny Dynell, writer Chi Chi Valenti, fashion designer Kitty Boots and dancer/choreographer Richard Move, who were later (c. 1995), joined by Brian Butterick AKA Hattie Hathaway. It served gay, fetish-dressed, straight, transvestite and poetic clubgoers for a decade. The party was so successful that it allowed Johnny and Chi Chi to purchase the nightclub, "Bar Room 432" from Anthony DePalma in 1994. They renamed the club "Mother."
