There are some great things going on in the community this week, including a party that brings together the softer side of the fetish community. And, local activist Big Mike is celebrating another birthday which always generates a lot of money to local charities. Plus there is so much more to do and we have your complete list of offerings in this week's Out & About. 

This is going to be Wicked!

With millions of viral views from his time on America’s Got Talent, Broadway credentials, and chart-topping singles, the singer-songwriter and entertainer Brian Justin Crum knew he was destined for stardom from a very early age. The San Diego native moved at 17 to join the cast of WICKED as the Universal Swing, performing in all of the US productions of the show. His love of the arts can be seen live at Martinis Above Fourth on Thursday.
