Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Supporting DOFL, and Drinking Around For Life tonight!

Today is Dining Out For Life!

The game plan for the evening is to have an early dinner with Brian Garces and Sam Ramirez at Crest Cafe around 4 pm, then follow that up with a DOFL-inspired bar crawl in an easterly direction, hitting Urban Mo's, Martinis Above Fourth, Jake's on 6th, Eden, Baja Betty's, Gossip Grill, finally ending up at the Food Truck Roundup at the Center.

I'll have my camera with me, of course, so if you see us along our "Drinking Around For Life" route and want a picture, just give a hollar!

Play for Ray Poker Tourney at Flicks

Also tonight is another very important charitable event, the "Play For Ray" Texas Hold 'Em Tournament at Flicks. A benefit for AFCSL member Ray Arce, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, his fellow players are coming together to support him in his time of need by hosting this tourney.

Buy in is $20 for 3,000 chips, with add-ons of $10 for 1,500 chips (optional, at beginning) and re-buys of $20 for 3,000 more chips (unlimited during the first hour).

Contestants get a raffle ticket just for playing, with bonus tickets given for add-ons and re-buys. Raffle tickets will be good for drawings held throughout the night for fantastic prizes (including additional chips for those still playing), and players at the final table will be awarded the biggest prizes (including some cash).

After a day of Dining (and drinking) Out, sitting down for a few friendly hands of poker for another great cause sounds like a great way to round out the evening! And even if you don't play poker, feel free to support the cause by stopping by and making a donation, and/or buying raffle tickets and Jell-O shots.

Wendy Ho at Urban Mo's

You remember Wendy Ho from this past Hillcrest Mardi Gras? Well, she's making a return appearance at Urban Mo's this Friday at 8 pm.

Singing all her hit songs like "Oprah Winfrey," "Bi$%h I Stole Yo Purse," and "Poop Noodle," this show promises to be a hoot! Cover is only $5, and since a sellout is likely, reservations are strongly recommended; call Urban Mo's at (619) 491-0400 to reserve your table now.

Getting Pinned at #1 Fifth

There's a lot of fun stuff going on this Saturday! For example, the San Diego Bulldog Wrestling Team will be hosting their semi-annual Get Pinned by the Bulldogs party at #1 Fifth Ave.

The team will be wearing singlets and demonstrating wrestling moves on a big mat in the back patio fro 2 to 6 pm. So, if you feel like getting pinned by a hot wrestler this Saturday in front of a live audience, this is be the place to be.

Art on the Edge at Eden

But if you're in the mood for something less physical and more visual, stop by Eden Saturday afternoon for a free charity art show called Art on the Edge.

Produced by Michele Jones, the event goes from 4 to 8 pm and features an art display, silent auction, food and drink specials, and music by DJ Glenn Red. Proceeds will benefit the Lois Merrill Foundation, which serves patients with rare cancers who cannot afford medical treatment.

BoyPartyBus to Eleven in WeHo

Angel Bonilla and those crazy kids at BoyPartyBus.com are planning another party limo bus extravaganza Saturday night, this one going all the way north to the very popular West Hollywood nightclub Eleven for the Tigerheat Monster Party (an 18+ event).

The bus leaves Hillcrest at 8:20 pm, and tickets are currently only $29.90. The last one I went on a few weeks ago up to OC was a blast in a glass, so this one promises to be even better.

And remember ... what happens on the party bus stays on the party bus!

Eye Candy Underwear Party at Numbers

But if you're in the mood for staying local tonight, the Eye Candy Underwear Party at Numbers is tonight as well. It's the first anniversary of Eye Candy, so you know Laur Darell and the rest of the production staff is going to be pulling out all the stops.

In fact, it's just been announced that Eva will be performing live at midnight, in honor of the occasion, singing her smash club hit "Not My Daddy." And look for the uber hot Eye Candy go go boys, great music by DJ Marcel Hetu, and a hosted Svedka bar from 10 to 11 pm as well.
