Jim Winsor’s Out & About: It’s Nicky time

The 39th annual Nicky Awards are this Sunday. Also known as the "gay Academy Awards of San Diego," the ceremony honors and recognizes outstanding achievement within our LGBT community.

This year will be a big one, I think, as it will be at the impressive new downtown Central Library, and features a full lineup of entertainment includes comedienne Shawn Pelofsky (seen on Chelsea Lately), Lori Moore of The X-Factor, and Keith London of "American Idol" Season 13. For more information about the major honorees, read SDGLN's feature story HERE.

Tickets are on sale at HERE, and are $85 for VIP and $65 for General Admission.

Underwear Night at the Eagle

This Saturday is the monthly Underwear Night at the Eagle, which includes a contest with a $100 first prize and a $25 bar tab second prize.

The competition should be particularly fierce, as it will also be the scene of the after-party for the Mr and Ms San Diego Leather Contest and San Diego Bootblack Contest, which will take place at the Victory Theater down in Imperial Beach earlier in the day.

Clothes check opens at 10 pm, and the contest starts at midnight.

Popsicle Corbin Fisher Party at Rich’s

Also this Saturday, Rich’s will be hosting a meet-and-greet with the sexy studs of Corbin Fisher, from 10 pm until midnight. Here’s your big chance to mix and mingle with Josh, Kellan, Marc, Ellis and Jacob.

It will also a Popsicle party night, with music by DJ Taj in the main room, and DJ K Swift in the front room. And of course free Popsicles!
