On top of that, Rich's is selling a limited edition of 200 VIP passes which get you in, front of line, to all of the above parties for only $50. That's a $10 dollar savings off what tickets would normally be at the door, and will in fact be the only way to purchase advance tickets to all these events (there are no pre-sales for individual events).

WTF is going on at Rich's this Saturday

Speaking of Rich's, this Saturday night promises to be interesting there, as they'll be having another WTF party (which I guess stands for "Well That's Funny" or something like that). A night dedicated to outrageous extremes in outfits, activity and decor, the first one back in May was, according to one eyewitness, "a legendary and beautiful mess."

Music will be provided by DJ Nikno and Dirty Kurty, and the party will also offer free body painting and a "crazy wacky photo booth."

Already mysterious packages are arriving at Rich's in preparation for WTF II. I'm not sure what surprises are in store for this Saturday, but I think it's safe to say a cellist is no longer on the list:

So You Think You Can Drag FINALS at Lips

We have a big night at Lips this Sunday, as it'll be the finals of the So You Think You Can Drag amateur drag night, hosted by the amazing Disco Dollie.

Yes that's right, Lips will be bringing back the baddest bitches in town together for an all out dragtastic competition where only the fierce will survive. All of the first- and second-place contestants from the past year are invited to come and battle it out for the title "Ms Dragtatsic - San Diego" and compete for over $500 in cash and prizes.

Dinner is at 7 pm, the show is at 8 pm, and the contest is at 9 pm. There's a $15 food minimum, and a $5 cover ($2.50 for industry).
