It's been a tough week, but there is plenty to do in Hillcrest to take your mind off the election at least for the night.
It’s hard to believe, but its already been 4 year now for Flicker, the popular Thursday night event at Flicks featuring DJ John Joseph and a rotating cast of some of the hottest go-go boys in town.
And tonight (Thursday) they’ll be celebrating with a Flicker 4-Year Anniversary Party.
There will be a bunch of the favorite Flicker go-go boys on hand, as well as two live performances: one by the amazing Paris Sukomi Max, and another by National Male Pole Champion Brandon Grimm.
Plus there will be giveaways all night, making this an event you won’t want to miss.
Matt Yee's Outrageous Adult Sing-Along Show 2016 at Martinis Above Fourth
As you all know, I was gone last week, out at sea on the 2016 Atlantis Halloween in Mexico Cruise. And as many of you know, one of the highlights of these cruises is entertainer Matt Yee.
Well here’s some good news for fans who weren’t on the latest cruise, as well as those who were and want to get a second helping: Matt will be performing at Martinis Above Fourth tonight (Thursday) for one night only at his Outrageous Adult Sing-Along Show 2016.
This show sold out last year, so get your tickets now!
Atlantis Mexico Cruise returns to San Diego for 2017
While we are on the subject of the Atlantis cruise, I bring back big news for you all: The same cruise will be returning to San Diego for 2017! It will be the exact same Mexican itinerary (San Diego-Cabo San Lucas-Puerto Vallarta-Mazatlan), but unfortunately, the ship (the Holland America Oosterdam) was not available for Halloween. So the dates for 2017 will be from October 14th to the 21st.
This cruise has yet to go on sale to the general public, but should be available in a few months.
Nacho Daddy Eating Contest at Baja Betty's
Also this Thursday is the Nacho Daddy Eating Contest at Baja Betty’s.

The Nicky Awards
And last but certainly not least, this Sunday will be what some have called ‘the Gay Academy Awards of San Diego,’ the 41st Annual Nicky Awards at the Handlery Hotel:
“The annual Nicky Awards is one of the oldest and most prestigious GLBT community awards showcases in the country. First held in 1975, the Nicky’s honor outstanding achievement in arts, social service, entertainment, nightlife, business, dining, activism, philanthropy, volunteerism and individual accomplishment from San Diego’s thriving GLBT community. Over the past 35 years, the awards ceremony has raised more than $1 million dollars for numerous GLBT and HIV services and organizations.”
