Great fun to be had in Hillcrest this week.
We have a big club night to look forward to this Saturday, as Mr. Masterbeat himself DJ Brett Henrichsen will be headlining this month’s installment of Overdrive at Spin Nightclub.
This will be an official Masterbeat One World New Year’s 2017 pre-party, so there will be ticket giveaways to this huge New Year’s Eve weekend extravaganza throughout the night. Plus, there will be a $5 Svedka happy hour from 10 pm to midnight, and no cover before 11 pm.
After hours will run until 5 am, and Brett will be joined by Overdrive resident DJ Tristan Jaxx.
Cassandra Cass comes to Hillcrest
Celebrity trans performer Cassandra Cass (star of Wild Things, What’s the T? and most recently the Oxygen Channel’s hit series Strut) will be in town this weekend, and she will be appearing at several events here in Hillcrest:
On Saturday evening, she will be the headliner at Davina’s Spotlight at Gossip Grill. Doors open at 7:15 pm show time is at 8 pm, and there will be a meet and greet after the show.
On Saturday night, she’ll be making at special guest performance at Fuel at Rich’s, most likely at or around midnight.
And then on Sunday morning, she will rejoin Davina at Gossip Grill for the Paparazzi Drag Brunch, so this is another great opportunity to meet her as she makes the rounds to all the brunch tables.
Gay Bash 2.0 at Martinis Above Fourth
Get ready for a big night of comedy at Martinis Above Fourth this Thursday night (11/17), with gay comedians Julie Goldman and Brad Loekle in “Gay Bash 2.0:”
“Julie and Brad are the true meaning of a comedy one-two punch! These loud & proud comedians have taken audiences by storm for over a decade apart and are now coming together to blow audiences away… and to split the cost of gas & beer while on the road.
They are two of the few exceptions of cross-over power when it comes to gay comedians. Julie on the hit Bravo show, The People's Couch, & Brad on truTV's World’s Dumbest, which he’s been a star of for the last 8 years. And LGBT audiences know them both well from such Logo shows as: Logo's The Big Gay Sketch Show, Skit Happens, Gayest Week Ever, and Bianca Del Rio's Comedy Cabaret!”
Anniversary Parties at the San Diego Eagle
The San Diego Eagle will be celebrating their 14th birthday this Friday. Look for drink specials all day, plus hors d’oeuvres served at 10 pm.
The celebration will continue on Saturday, with gift giveaways every half hour from 4 pm to 10 pm.
Baby's Birthday Bash at Babycakes
There’s a ton of stuff happening this Saturday night, starting with the monthly birthday night at Babycakes. This month honors all those with November birthdays, so if you’re one of those, be sure to RVSP to Babycakes and invite all your friends to celebrate.
Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue
Also this Saturday, here’s just the antidote for post-election night stress: Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue. It’s a night of salsa, cumbia, merengue and Cuban music, featuring Manny Cepeda & Orchestra, hosted by Michele Ada, with additional sounds by DJ V.
