The big event this weekend looks to be the return of Overdrive at Spin Nightclub. This month’s event features NYC tribal house star DJ Eddie Martinez, plus resident circuit/EDM producer/DJ Tristan Jaxx.

Cover is free before 11 pm, with a $5 Svedka Vodka happy hour from 10 pm to midnight. Look for a special guest performance by Ami Champagne in the course of the night as well.

Heat Pool Party at the Lafayette Hotel

Also this Saturday, get ready for another big Heat Pool Party at the Lafayette Hotel. Heat resident DJ John Joseph will kick things off, followed by DJ Taj.

As we’ve come to expect at these fun parties, look for new decorations, 2 full bars, cocktail servers, food, pool floats and toys, 2 floating islands, lounge chairs and more!

Drag Race Season 8 Contestants Live at the Balboa Theatre

And on Sunday we have the Drag Race Season 8 Contestants Live at the Balboa Theatre. Starring RuPaul runners up Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls along with Chi Chi DeVayne, Derrick Barry, Thorgy Thor and very special guest host, Katya, Miss Congeniality from Season 7, the night promises to be a memorable one.

A limited amount of VIP meet and greet tickets are available as well, and are great for taking selfies with all six queens before the show.
