This is a special New Years edition of "Out & About," the neighborhood is definitely ringing in 2018 with a bang and Jinx Mirage has all the details.

Everyone at Hale Media wishes you a very happy New Year, we hope you have the best of luck in 2018. 

Now here's Jinx:

"What’s up Hillcrest I hope you had an awesome holiday and are ready for a fun-filled New Year's Weekend to ring in 2018.

So let’s kick it off with hilarious comedian Alec Mapa at Martinis Above Fourth."

Baby Daddy

Jinx says Alec Mapa in "Holiday in Alec Mapa" at Martinis Above Fourth is for true comedy lovers. "You've definitely seen him on multiple TV shows. He is a fabulous, amazing, hilarious; he's definitely someone you are going to want to check out." 

Grab Some Cash For The New Year

Looking for a little extra cash before New Year's Eve? Jinx says head over to New Years Money Grab at Flicks! "Essentially when you get a drink at Flicks you get a raffle ticket. With every raffle ticket you get, you get a chance to get into the big money grab. There's going to be about $500 in the grab this year."

Above the City With Friends

 As always SDPIX Presents Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel. Get together with friends and family to celebrate and prepare for all the festivities happening in the neighborhood for New Year's Eve. 

Dance The Night Away on Saturday

If you want to celebrate New Year's a little bit early, Jinx says to head over to the signature event Euphoria at Rich's. "Rich's will be open until 4 am. That's after-hours DJ spinning and a live performance by Dev. She's gonna be all up in there like a G6 and everything!" 

New Year's Eve in The Community

"Okay everybody we are here, New Year's Eve in San Diego Baby -- Hillcrest has got you, they have something for everyone!"

If you want a jazzy, more cocktail feel, Jinx says get to Emile Welman's New Year's Spectacular at Martinis Above Fourth. "He's kind of like a jazzy, hip-hop infusion. If you're looking for more of a lounge feel for your New Year's Eve celebration go see Emile Welman." 

"For my leather community, there's New Years Eve Party at the San Diego Eagle. They are doing a $500 balloon drop at midnight with cash and prizes. So for you leather daddies and puppies make your way out to The Eagle."

"For those who want that 'neighborhood bar' excitement and feel, I would recommend either New Year's Eve Party at #1 Fifth Avenue. The will have bottle service available with a DJ.

Or, 2018 New Year Celebration at Flicks, there will be no cover: Erika Foxx and Frankie Puma are hosting all night long with a gang of Gogo dancers and prizes and raffles throughout the entire night."

For the Salsa and Latin music lovers, there's Lil' Havana New Years Eve Night at the Porto Vista Hotel! "Look  forward to an open bar, salsa lessons, cigar rollers, live art, Havana takeaways and a champagne toast at midnight!"

"For all my club-heads we have something for you: NYE Massive at Rich's!" There will be a $1000 cash drop and a champagne toast at midnight. Rich's will also be going after-hours, the will be spinning until 4 am with an awesome lineup of some of the best in San Diego, especially my girl DJ Durty Kurty will be hitting the decks, along with DJ Taj and more great DJs," says Jinx. "Like the title says, this will be massive!"

If you are not figuratively dead News Year's Day eat a little something at New Year's Day Brunch at Uptown Tavern. "Bring in the New Year the right way with an absolutely delicious meal. I've had the food at Uptown Tavern and Oohhh honey-child that chicken and waffles is just like grandma-ma used to make."

Final Thoughts and Shout Outs
