Jim Winsor's Out & About: The Amazing High Heel Race returns June 15

It's almost time to break in those new heels! The Amazing High Heel Race is back and on schedule for June 15, so if you have not registered your team yet, now would be a good time.

This year there will be no scavenger hunt. Instead, racers will clop their way through west Hillcrest to collect colored stripes representing the colors of the Hillcrest pride flag (which is the beneficiary of the event). Once a team has collected all eight colors, then it’s a race to the Heels Up Pit Stop at Rich's. And from there, a final race to the finish at the Gossip Grill/HBC parking lot, when there will be an awards ceremony and after party.

Bear Night at Numbers

It's the first Saturday of the month this weekend, which means the bears and cubs and their admirers will once again be at Numbers for BearNight.

With music by DJs Jon Williams and Will Z, the night will also feature $3 Buds and Bud Lights, $6 double Svedka vodka drinks, and Jagermeister and Barenjager shot specials all night long. Plus go-go bears, friendly bartenders and burgers and more on the patio.

FilmOut San Diego's Closing Night party will be on Sunday

FilmOut San Diego's 15th annual LGBT Film Festival is going on through Sunday at the Birch North Park Theatre.

This year's Closing Night party will be held at West Coast Tavern (which is outside the lobby of the theater) from 9 to 10:30 pm, right after the conclusion of the final film screening of the festival, the California premiere of Jeffrey Schwarz's "I Am Divine." Judging from the positive reaction of the nearly sold out audience at Opening Night on Wednesday, the documentary about Divine is going to be a big draw so you might want to purchase tickets in advance HERE.
