SDPIX - 12/16

First of all, Hale media would like to wish everyone a very merry holiday.

There is plenty to do this week around town and we have mapped out some featured events that are sure to keep you warm and toasty throughout the rest of the season. If you want to plan ahead or find future activities, be sure to visit SDPIX.com,where great events are added frequently to the calendar. 

Top of the Bay

First book a room for you or your friends and family early for New Year's Eve and take advantage of their all-inclusive Romantico New Years Eve Package. Then, soak in the picturesque views on Friday as SDPIX Presents Top of the Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel where you can socialize, plan your extended holiday weekend and enjoy some great San Diego music and scenery.

Rich's Has a Special Holiday Get Together

Hosted by Paris Sukomi Max along with a cast of Hillcrest’s fabulous queens Kickxy Vixen Styles, Naomi Daniels, Cassidy Richards, Keex Rose and Lolita Vontease, Home for the Holidays: A Hillcrest Christmas at Rich's rings in the holiday season with a high energy show filled with laughter, love and cheer! $20 cover.

Beg For Forgiveness

619 Spirits is giving you a special T-Dance for the holidays. They say "You've been to Church... Now come to Confession!" Sponsored by Manfest with no cover, Confession T-Dance at 619 Spirits takes place on Sunday, December 23 from 3 pm to 8 pm. 

Strip Down To Your Candy Canes

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

Every Sunday doors will open at 8 pm and there will be NO COVER with $2 Vodka drinks from 8-10 pm. Come check out the 15 hot gogo boys from LA, Vegas & San Diego. Plus all-new new strip down! 

Dining and Entertainment for a Special Christmas Eve 

Join Martinis Above Fourth on Monday, December 24, for a traditional Christmas Dinner (turkey or brisket) complete with all the fixins for their annual Christmas Eve Dinner at Martinis Above Fourth. With entertainment from 7-10 pm. 

Don't Cook at Home, Let the Crest Cafe Do it! 

 Open Christmas Day from 7 am to 5 pm, the Tuesday Special at Crest Cafe is going to be extra special. If you bring in a group from your office during holidays you will get a $20 gift certificate for every four persons in your party to use on subsequent visits or to give away!

The gift certificates are perfect to have on hand for those unexpected gifts you get from people who you didn't buy for. They probably get the better end of the deal because Crest Cafe is world-famous for their comfort cuisine which arguably is the best in San Diego.

There is always something fun to do in Hillcrest!

Whether you have some last minute shopping to do, or just want to hang around friends you haven't seen in a long time, there is so much to do in San Diego, especially Hillcrest. Noted as one of the mosted popular gay neighborhoods in the country, Hillcrest and its surrounding areas play host to many LGBT events and parties.

Along with the suggestions made above, take a look at what other attractions await you in America's Finest City.

Happy Holi-gays!
