Are you ready for some March madness? Jinx Mirage welcomes in another month of great things to do in the community. In this week's Out & About, he's walking the red carpet and heading to Flicks.

"How’s it going Hillcrest? I hope everyone is keeping warm out there. This week we have Flicker, the Academy Awards, and the famous Leslie Jordan. So get your cutest winter outfit and let’s go have some fun."

Start The Month With DJ John Joseph

"Let's kick it off with Flicker at Flicks! It's the first Flicker of the month with John Joseph in town." Flicker will also announce new events coming up for Flicker this month and next. " Make sure you make your way out for hot go-go dancers, great drink specials, and the best music."

Start Your Month On Top

"Come out this Friday, March 2 for SDPIX Presents Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel for some great networking, great music and amazing views of Little Italy and the marina area all from atop the absolutely gorgeous and amazing Porto Vista Hotel."

Flogging at The Eagle

Come join Flogging Friday at the San Diego Eagle hosted by Beat Your Drum Productions. "If you ever wondered what it feels like to be flogged, or learn how to flog your partner. Honestly, I'm actually kinda interested. I think its something very interesting and something new you and your partner might want to check out." 

And The Winner Is...

This Sunday for the Academy Awards join the SDGMC Red Carpet Party at True North. "Join them for all the glitz and glamour of the Oscars at True North; a very awesome bar that I've actually been to. It's super-cute, tons of space. There will be Hor' oeuvres, drink specials and one of the biggest ballot contests in San Diego. So come out and watch the Academy Awards with your fellow Hillcrestians."

The Envelope Goes To...

Jinx says if North Park is a little too far for you to travel for the above event, "You know which gays you are in Hillcrest honey, make your way out for Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party at Uptown Tavern." They will have movie-themed drink specials for $8, free snacks and a red carpet. Jinx says both Oscar night events will be "absolutely fabulous." 

An LGBT Comic For the Ages

"For those of you who know who Leslie Jordan is and especially for those who don't know who he is, definitely make your way out to see Leslie Jordan in Exposed at Martinis Above Fourth." Jinx says Leslie is probably one of the most recognized faces in popular entertainment. "I mean, for those of you who are 'Will and Grace' fans you would definitely know who Leslie Jordan is. The man has worked in numerous, numerous television shows, movies, and stand-up appearances at Pride events -- the man is just a powerhouse of comedy and entertainment, and he is here in Hillcrest! What else could you want or need?!" 

Jinx's Shout Outs and Final Thoughts:

"I am super excited this week because I got to interview the fabulous Miss CupcakKe who came out for the new concert series at Rich's this past Sunday. It was absolutely electrifying.

The place was packed! So many people knew all of the words to her songs. She was absolutely amazing, she was there for the meet-and-greet prior to the performance, she took a lot of photos with fans-she took more time than normal to take photos with people. Then she came out and gave an absolutely amazing show; I am now a fan.

I did get to catch up with her to see what's she's up to. She said right now she just wants to perform for her fans on a 26-city tour. She's even going to cross the pond and hit the U.K. I asked her what it is she loves best about performing in San Diego -- at Rich's especially.

She said simply, "the crowd, the energy is just top-notch." She said everybody comes out to support her and everyone seems to want to have a great time and just be there for her shows. For those of you who are a CupcakKe fan, or not, please Mama check her out because she's f***ing with the LGBT okay? Y'all need to check the girl out!" 

One last thing: if you can’t make it into the Manfest store or don’t live in San Diego, check it out online at manfestsd.com. Get all the underwear, lube and toys you’ll need for a fun weekend delivered to your door.   

Well that it for me this week. I hope you all have some fun this weekend and I’ll see you all next week. I’m Jinx Mirage and you stay fabulous Hillcrest."
