Trixie Mattel at Martinis Above Fourth (Sold Out)

First off, at Martinis Above Fourth Drag Race Superstar Trixie Mattel will be bringing her new show "Ages 3+ Up" June 14 and15. 

I always thought Trixie was so entertaining and unique on Drag Race. I'm sure this show will be nothing but the same razor-sharp reads and off-color comedy. If you are looking to laugh and enjoy a show this will be the event for you.

Next Top DJ at Uptown Tavern

Also coming up this week is one of my favorite competitions "Next Top DJ" at Uptown Tavern where DJ's will compete to be the new resident DJ for the summer and a chance at $700 cash prize. 

Unlocked: An Interactive Youth Art Exhibition at the Center.

 Friday I will be attending Unlocked: An Interactive Youth Art Exhibition at the Center. 

The Exhibition is from 5 pm to 8 pm and I'm really excited to see what these young artists have in store for us. I was told be ready for a "multi-sensory artistic maze created by youth to visualize their experiences with emotions".

Then afterward I'll be watching the sunset on top of the Porto Vista Hotel with friends for "SDPIX Presents Top Of Bay". Cocktails, awesome music and gorgeous men. I mean hello people!!

get into it.

Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue

 Another event I'm looking forward to is Havana Nights at #1 Fifth Avenue, now me being raised in South Florida. I have danced many a salsa and merengue.

Which will be nice to get my dancing shoes back on and cut up the floor. Never know maybe I'll meet my dancing soulmate and he will dance me off into the starry night. Unlikely but it should still be a fun event.  If these events aren't for you look below. I'll be listing a few other events that may be what you're looking for. 

Here's the fun stuff I did last week:

Now to get on the dish of what I did last weekend. It started out with my first time at "Out at the Fair".

"Out at the Fair" is the gay edition of the San Diego County Fair held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

With a performance by Drag Queen Locals, House Legend Pepper Mashay and a few Dj's. It brings a  colorful fair experience that only we gays can bring. 

Along with all the fun of a County fair with all the different rides, games and big food on sticks to eat. "Out at the Fair" is a fun time to be had not only by the gays. But back to the food, I'm not going lie it was my favorite part. Where else can I get a Samoan Donut the size of my head? Between the large sausage corn dogs and the BBQ Brisket Sundae.

I was in fat kid heaven, but the most interesting thing I had was the Deep-fried lemonade. I know what your thinking but check this out. Imagine a sweet cake soaked in lemonade then deep-fried that's then served with an icing and sweet cream sauce. #DELISH #GetInMouth 

 But besides all that great food and fun. The best part of the fair was witnessing a group of teenage girls ask two of our local Queens Frankie Puma and Grotesqa if they could get a group photo.

Ugh, that touched my little icy gay heart. It's so amazing to see such acceptance nowadays with everything going on.

After taking in more of the sights I cut out a little early so I could get some rest before I caught up with British Singer-Songwriter Kitty Brucknell from "The X Factor" at the the "Out at the Fair" after party at Rich's.

Kitty Brucknell took the stage and kept the energy going with her electrifying performance of her original dance music.

I got to chat with Kitty after here show and asked her What made performing at Out of the Fair so special for you and she had this to say "In the U.K. we don't have county fairs as big as in Del Mar and it was definitely a shock to the senses. But also how welcoming, friendly and lovely everyone ones and it felt good to do my own music."

It was so awesome meeting Kitty Brucknell she is such a sweetheart.

Google her when you get a chance she is amazing.
