Matinee Las Vegas

I won’t be able to make to any of the above events, as I’ll be in Sin City for the big Matinee Las Vegas party weekend! And it looks like San Diego will be well-represented this year, with many local boys making the trek up there for this as well, I notice.

SDPIX is a sponsor for the event, so if you see me with my camera be sure to come up and say “hi!” This will be my first time covering this event, so as you can imagine I’m very excited about this.

I’ll have pictures for you all when I return … in other words, what goes on there won’t necessarily stay there!

Join the Glitterati at Uptown Tavern

The Glitterati are a group of five philanthropic friends who are working to make life a little better for those here in need. This Saturday, they are having another event, a fundraiser of Being Alive at Uptown Tavern.

There’ll be happy hour drinks, complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a raffle. Representatives from Being Alive will be on hand to accept donations.

Check out SDPIX for all the new albums from last week, including photos from 1202, Fiesta Cantina, Flicks, Bourbon Street, Hillcrest Brewing Company and Uptown Tavern. Happy viewing!
