With Blanche DeBris as your emcee and Chad Michaels making a guest appearance as Cher you won’t want to miss this ode to the latter days of vaudeville. You can get your tickets HERE.

BearNight American Bear Story at Numbers

October begins this weekend as well, which means the season for Halloween parties has begun. Yes, I know, already! We gays of San Diego aren’t wasting any time this year to start Halloweening.

This Saturday, for example, the monthly BearNight at Numbers is hosting a Halloween themed event, American Bear Story. It promises to be “a night of costumes, leather and gear, or whatever you dare to wear.” Music will be provided by DJ Jon Williams and DJ Mateo Segade, and if you dress up you could be the winner of a $50 bar tab, given out at midnight by mystery judges.

Drink specials include $1 pints of Bud Light and $5 Bud Light pitchers from 9 to 10pm, plus $6 Double Svedka Vodka drinks, $3 Bud/Bud Light, and shot specials all night. Flaco’s famous grilled-to-order burgers will be out on the patio as well.

A Puppy's Nightmare Before XXX-Mas at the San Diego Eagle

And then on Wednesday, there will be a special Halloween edition of the monthly Puppy Night at the San Diego Eagle: A Puppy's Nightmare Before XXX-Mas:

“San Diego's no. 1 stop for Human Pup play, Fetish Puppy Night, celebrates its once a year Halloween Event. Every year it has got bigger and bigger this year it will be the best party yet. Transforming the Eagle SD into a Tim Burton-esque world where there are more Tricks than Treats. Performers and other spooky friends. Contest start at midnight. Costumes or lack of costumes encouraged!! Treasure Island and Mankind along with other local sponsors make the prize package something to be desired!! DONT MISS OUT THE EVENT WILL BE AWESOME!!
