Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Vote in the Matinee Las Vegas DJ and Dancer Contests

Matinee Las Vegas, the huge gay dance festival of the coming up this Memorial Day weekend, is holding a couple of talent contests for open spots in both their DJ and go-go dancer lineups. And the deadline for online voting is this Friday.

You can vote on their Facebook page (by liking and sharing images of the contestants) for DJs here, and for dancers here. As you can see the competition is quite fierce in both categories, with 43 DJs and 64 dancers in the running.

Pride 3-2-1 Go! Party at 1202

On Friday, April 26, San Diego Pride will host its second annual 3-2-1 Go! Headliner Announcement Party at 1202. This is officially the first “Pride” party of 2013 (you can never begin Pride too early I always say!), and the headliner announcements will be made at midnight. There is no cover before 11 pm with a special text, just text 1202 to 74455 to get it.

Jungle Party at Rich’s

Get your leopard-print booty shorts ready, boys!

This Saturday, SDPIX will bring back the The Jungle party to Rich’s, with amazing decorations, tropical themed performances, hot tribal go-go boys, and amazing dance music. And for the first time for a Jungle party: after hours until 4 am!

DJ Taj and DJ Marcel will spin tribal beats all night long, and jungle-themed costumes are encouraged (though not required) ... to get an idea of what to wear, check out photos from past Jungle parties here.

I'd recommend early arrival since this will be a capacity night; get there before 11 pm so you don't have to wait in line while everyone else is partying inside.

Cover is $5 off before 11 pm with your SDPIX VIP Membership, or by texting SDPIX to 313131 and showing the welcome message to the cashier upon arrival.

Splash T-Dance at the Range

With warmer weather comes a brand new event, a Sunday T-Dance at the Range from 4 to 7 pm. What better way to spend your Sunday Funday hanging out on the patio, enjoying cool $4 drinks, listening to tea dance music and cruising hot boys.
