Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Official White Party Kickoff at Overdrive this Saturday

This Saturday will be the Official White Party Kickoff at Overdrive. DJ Dan DeLeon will be spinning starting from 2-6 am (yes, big time after hours!), along with DJ Tristan Jaxx from 11 pm to 2 am.

The night will feature White Party Palm Springs giveaways all night, including White Party tanks, shorts and knapsacks. Also, you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three pairs of tickets to the all-new Water Park Party, which is the hot new event of the weekend everyone is talking about.

Two great causes mix it up at Stir at the DoubleTree this Friday

This Friday, many leading LGBT community leaders will join together at the weekly Stir at the DoubleTree happy hour, for a special “dual” event: A launch party for 2-1-1 San Diego (a new LGBTQ resource navigation line), and a fundraiser for Timothy Caudill, who was injured in a knife attack at the San Diego Eagle in February.

The event begins at 5 pm, with a short program and remarks scheduled for 7 pm. Thanks are in order to Michael Spradley and Jacob Augustine Bell for putting this all together.

Pokeball at Numbers

Also this Friday … Pokeball is back at Numbers! Yes, Hillcrest’s “most fun and geeky party” has returned; come dressed as your favorite Pokemon and start geek season out with a bang.

There will be a hosted Svedka bar from 10 to 11 pm, a gaming area for card gaming and portable gaming, and music by DJ Marcel. Cover is $8, or $5 if you are in costume, or FREE if you strip down to your Pokemon undies (saving money is good, so I recommend the latter). A clothes check will be available.

Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue

And on Saturday, #1 Fifth Avenue presents Havana Nights, a night of salsa, merengue, cumbia and Cuban music featuring drink specials, lots of fun and the sounds of DJ M&M and Manny Cepeda and Orchestra.

These monthly music nights are very popular at #1 Fifth, so arrive early to join in the fun! The band gets going at 8 pm.
