Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Third annual Unofficial Gay Day at the Fair is Tuesday

This coming Tuesday, July 2 William Zakrajshek (aka DJ Will Z) is once again organizing a Gay Day at the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar. And get ready folks, this year the event is really going to be kicked up a notch!

Although still officially “unofficial,” this is the first year the Fair has gotten involved directly with the event, making possible several gay and lesbian targeted attractions:

1) LGBT non-profits will have their own area in the Pavilion for information booths, including an official Unofficial Gay Day tent with the infamous SDPIX photo kiosk set up;

2) The LGBT all-girl local band Runhoney will perform on the Rock On Stage at 3:30pm;

3) At 7:30 pm Adam Lambert performs in concert at the Grandstand (not included in regular fair admission, however);

4) Then at 8:30-9pm, Rich’s will take over the Rock On Stage and feature DJs Nikno and Will Z!

All this fun at the Fair kicks off at 10 am. I’ll be there with camera in hand, so if you see me be sure to flag me down for a photo!

And afterwards, be sure to stop by Urban Mo’s for the Official Unofficial Gay Day at the Fair After Party at 10 pm, featuring the sounds of DJ John Joseph.

Win Fair Tickets at Flicks

Do you want to get free tickets to the Gay Day at the Fair mentioned above? Well, one way to do that is to go to Flicks and strip down to your underwear! In addition to the $100 regular cash prize at this Saturday’s Underwear Show at Flicks, Fair tickets will go out to the First, Second and Third place contestants … four tickets to the winner, and two each to the boys who place and show.

WTF Big Gay Wedding! at Rich's

After the historic marriage equality decisions earlier this week, Rich's decided to throw a "Big Gay Wedding!" This Saturday is the next WTF party at Rich's, and theme will be "Big Gay Wedding." WTF parties are always crazy, and with the excitement after this week's victory, it will certainly be a night to celebrate!

DJ Taj will play the opening set followed by DJ Nikno. In the front room will be DJ Vaughn Avakian. The evening will include the fabulous SDPIX photo booth, champagne and cake! Wedding themed attire is encouraged.

Sources also tell me that Paul Gunn will be celebrating his big 30th birthday party that night in VIP, so if you see him there be sure to wish him a happy one!

Since this is an SDPIX sponsored event, VIP members will get $5 off cover and front of the line until 11 pm. Those who do not have a membership may text SDPIX to 313131 and show the text to the cashier for the same discount.

SDPIX staff will also be on hand throughout the night giving out free VIP memberships.

Guess the Tokens in the Jar at Baja Betty’s

Baja Betty’s will be running a fun and challenging contest throughout July. They’ll have a jar of drink tokens every Wednesday at the host stand, and if you guess closest to the correct amount you win the whole jar! And it looks like a LOT of tokens, so be prepared to have many unproductive Wednesdays in the future should you emerge victorious.

The winners will be announced at the end of the month on July 31 at 8pm, and you must be present to win.
