How’s it going Hillcrest? I hope you guys are keeping cool with this mini heat wave we got going on.

But I hope you're ready for a weekend jam-packed with a bunch of different fun. We have Drag Race Queens, All kinda delicious food and an announcement you have been waiting for. So sit back relax and let’s get into this week's Out and About. 

This Week at Martinis Above Fourth:

"The week kicks off with Anne Steele in Welcome to the Big Top at Martinis Above Fourth.This is an event for anyone who basically wants to witness an artist tell their life story through a different range of hilarious stories, songs from the 80's, and big belting dance numbers. And for any fans of local comedy or just comedy in general, come out for Hillcrest Comedy Night with Jaleesa Johnson at Martinis Above Fourth, it is an absolutely fabulous cast of comedians. You can support your local community and also check out some local talent!"

Detox For Dayz

"It is with great honor that I am so excited to let you all know that all fans of Detox should make their way out to Sunny Dayz at Flicks this Thursday. There will be music provided by DJ Taj, also you'll get a chance to win tickets to all the LE Party pool parties and the Pride 2018 pool parties. Season 10's Mayhem Miller will also be there."

The Best Way To Start The Weekend

With the entertainment calendar so full this week, you should get to Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel to plan out your time. Get there at 6 pm for the social hour, the DJ will start at 7 pm.

Ravin' at DIVAS

"Divas at Rich's is back this Friday! Drag Race fans will get to see Raven from Drag Race season 2 plus all the local queens including Kickxy Vixen-Styles and Vanity Jones! If you love DIVAS this is definitely your event. It's this Friday the 13th, trust, don't let the day get to you."

Latin Groove!

"Also this Friday, Club Papi San Diego at Rich's. This is going to be the official concert after party for Gloria Trevi Vs. Alejandra Guzman. This is a great party for those of you who love dance music, the Latin groove. There's going to be 8 to 10 sexy Papi go-go dancers. If you have never been to a Club Papi party, this is definitely the time to check it out."

Eat Your Way Through Hillcrest

"Calling all the foodies in Hillcrest this Saturday is Taste of Hillcrest, where you get to try mini savory bites from over 35 Hillcrest restaurants. If you love the Hillcrest culinary scene but haven't been able to try out all the places to eat this is definitely a time to try something new and see what Hillcrest has to offer."

Celebrate Your Queerness

"I'm SO excited for this Saturday night and Gay as F-ck at Rich's! One of my favorite parties that happens at Rich's is here again; it's another WTF, but not JUST a WTF, it's Gay as F-ck with special guest Wendy Ho. This party isn't just for one group, it's for all of Hillcrest. Everyone come out, be as gay as you wanna be, and have some good old-fashioned fun hunny! I wanna see everyone out this Saturday at Rich's for Gay As F-ck!" 

Road Trip

"For any of my leather fans, or just fans of the Eagle there's the Eagle Bus Trip to Long Beach at the San Diego Eagle. The ticket is $50 which includes an open bar and lunch. The bus leaves at 1 pm. So go out, get some leather, hang out with some fellow leather gays and have fun in Long Beach!" 

A Royal Affair

"If you're a fan of the Imperial Court, or just want to learn about it, get to the ICDSD Royale Gala at Rich's. If you like galas, drag and learning more about what the Imperial Court does this is  definitely the event you want to check out."

It's a Circus!

Take Sunday Funday to a whole new level! Cheap drinks, no cover, games, and STRIPPERS! What more could you ask for on a Sunday at Stripper Circus at Rich's?

"Whoops? Ed, did you say "whoops"? No, Ed. "Whoops" is when you fall down an elevator shaft."

Come out to see one of the LGBT communities favorite 80's comedies. FilmOut San Diego 'Torch Song Trilogy 30th Anniversary' at the Landmark Hillcrest Cinemas. This film stars  Anne Bancroft, Matthew Broderick, Harvey Fierstein as a family who endures the love and heartache of being gay in the 1980's. See it on the big screen while you can. 

Final Thoughts 

Hillcrest Scavager Hunt

I wanted to take a moment to give a shout out to the ImpulseSD team, for putting together such an amazing event that was the “ BIG HARD HUNT." It was definitely nice to do something new in the community while learning so much about it. Great job guys all-around top-notch event. 

The Announcement You Have Been Waiting For

As your Hillcrest socialite and columnist, I feel it’s my duty to make sure you are all in on the best parties and events coming up. And I know a few have been asking, so I'm stoked I can finally say something. 

I caught up with the awesome minds behind LE Parties Pool Party Series to find out all the details on what’s coming up this year. Especially since it was announced a few months back that they would no longer be at the Lafayette Hotel. So without keeping you in any more suspense here are the details: 

When it comes to summer pool parties we all know LE Parties throws the biggest and best! Since the parties have become so popular, including their pride weekend parties, they have moved to a larger venue which not only has a massive outdoor pool area but an indoor pool, and an outdoor scandalous jacuzzi!

The new party spot is right across the freeway from the Fashion Valley mall and just a hop up from Hillcrest with plenty of free parking: The DoubleTree Mission Valley Hotel and Event Center.

This freshly renovated venue has a huge pool deck and multiple swim spots, full bar, restaurant, evening fire pits, and a massive 10,000 square-foot event center.

This place will be one of the summer's hotspots to all LE Parties events and pool parties! In addition, LE Parties Pride Weekend line up will include two brand new night time parties with after hours --yes After Hours till 4 am -- along with their daytime capacity crowd pool parties.

Not only can you party all weekend but you can stay and play at the hotel with balcony rooms overlooking the pool and in-and-out privileges to their nighttime and after-hours affairs. Heading to another event like Pride on the Pier you can jump on the trolley right out front of the hotel and get off at the pier. Book your room now and get your tickets online while they are discounted at LE Parties.com(LE Parties will be making an official announcement with dates later on today)

So there you have it -- and I know --you're welcome lol. 

Well that it for me this week, I hope you guys stay cool and have a blast this weekend. I’m Jinx Mirage and I'll see you all down in the pool.
