The holiday is finally upon us and amid all of the houseguests, overeating, and cheer through spirits, jinx Mirage is having a great time. letting you know what's happening in the community if you need to get away from home:

"Happy Holidays Hillcrest, this is your Cheer-Meister Jinx Mirage back with another installment of Out & About with Jinx Mirage. This week we have singers, holiday parties, and a Winter White Party.

So let’s kick this weekend off with singer/songwriter Spencer Day!"

Send me an Angel

San Diego favorite Spencer Day is offering up some tunes in time for the holiday in "Angel City" at Martinis Above Fourth. Jinx says he is excited for Spencer's return to the San Diego stage. 

Holidays, Celebrate

"Our neighborhood bar, Our neighborhood watering hole one of my absolute favorite places to catch up with friends Flicker Holiday Party at Flicks is back," says Jinx. "There is going to be a contest to be King of the Holiday with some awesome prizes It's going to be a great party, John Joseph is spinning, absolutely fabulous."

San Diego never gets to experience a "White Christmas," but that's a blessing because then you wouldn't be able to enjoy Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel. As the holiday draws near, get together with all of your friends and visiting family to socialize, listen to great music and throw back some holiday cheer. 

A Little Bit of Fifth 

"Being from South Florida, Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue is definitely something I'm excited for," says Jinx. "The Salsa, the meringue, bachata; the flavors of South Florida --the flavors of South America --all right here in San Diego, in Hillcrest!" This is definitely a night you want to check out to warm yourself by a little Latin fire. 

Boogie Wonderland

Winter White Party at Rich's is something Jinx has been waiting for all year. "Miss thing, get out your white honey; we are going to party it up y'all!" Jinx adds that it's going to be a full night of inspired fashion too. He says to make sure to get to the Winter White Party to not only celebrate the season with the community but see what people are wearing.

Stars Searched

Martinis Above Fourth may be the "Star Search" of San Diego with their Stars of Today and Stars of Tomorrow event. this is a great night to come out to witness the hard work and determination it takes to be the next entertainment superstar. 

Not Just Another Standard Evening

It's time to get nostalgic with  Richard Shelton in "Sinatra and Me" at Martinis Above Fourth. Richard recently won ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ for his portrayal of Frank Sinatra in the drama Rat Pack Confidential. This is another example of the talent that comes to San Diego every week at Martinis Above Fourth. 

Reviews and Shout Outs from Jinx:

"So this week I am going to talk about two different venues. First, I was invited by The Couch to come by and check out some of their food. And oh my goodness! That food was absolutely amazing!

They have all this great new food, great appetizers for you to start off your night at The Couch -- have a few cocktails, have a few little bites; some things to share. I would definitely suggest the ginger Sweet and Sour Meatballs. I would also suggest the Buffalo Chicken sliders; they were absolutely amazing! They weren't like shredded or processed chicken. It was a hand-cut filet of chicken with the grill marks on it, tossed in homemade buffalo sauce with Blue Cheese crumbles. Mmmm, yes Ma'am it was absolutely delicious!

I also want to give a huge shout out to Overdrive! Kaleb, I don't know what you are doing, but Miss Thing, this music, and these DJs; they are just getting it honey.

The vibe seems so different at Overdrive. It's definitely a lot of fun. If you haven't been,  you need to check it out. Keep a heads up at January's Overdrive, we have some big news coming if you haven't heard about it already."
