The monthly Overdrive party at Spin Nightclub is this Saturday night, and will feature three amazing San Diego DJs, each spinning a 2-and-a-half-hour set: DJ DIRTY kurty (10pm-12:30am), DJ Tristan Jaxx (12:30am - 2:30am), and DJ Drew G (2:30am - close).

Afterhours will extend to 5 am, and there is no cover before 11 pm. Plus there will be a $5 Svedka Vodka happy hour from 10 pm until midnight.

Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue

Also this Saturday is the monthy 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.

A Very Babette Christmas at Urban Mo's

There are a trio of festive holiday themed parties this week as well, the first one being A Very Babette Christmas at Urban Mo’s.

This annual show featuring local drag diva Babette Schwartz is immensely popular, so popular in fact that both seated and standing room tickets are both officially sold out.

However, I have it on good authority that if you show up the day of the event, you may well get lucky and snag a no-show’s place.

A Flicksmas Party at Flicks

The second is A Flicksmas Party at Flicks, with music by DJ Will Z and highlighting an ugly Christmas sweater contest: Wear your ugly sweater, hot cocktail suit, favorite pajamas, or anything in between … the best holiday statement wins cash.

Ugly Sweater Party with Don L. and Friends at Martinis Above Fourth

Speaking of ugly Christmas sweaters, there will be similarly themed party later in the week, the Ugly Sweater Party with Don L. and Friends at Martinis Above Fourth. Martinis entertainer Don L. will once again gather many of his talented friends to entertain and amuse you, while everyone proudly shows off the ugliest sweaters they can buy, create, recycle, pull out of the trash or find in the bottom of their sweater drawer or hanging in the back of their closet. There is no cover for this event.
