JAMBO!!! I'm Jinx Mirage and I'm back with your weekly installment of what's going on in the community. This week we have laughs, excitement, and superstar drag queens!

Tickle your funny bone

Tonight, Thursday, August 10, The Comedians at #1 Fifth Avenue are back!

This is one event I will definitely be attending after last months unofficial, official pride show. 

Seriously, I laughed so hard a little pee came out and my jaw was hurting. And it wasn't from doing the other thing. Minds in gutters people, Mind in gutters. 

Come enjoy the comedic styles of Arielle Conversi, Michael Castleberry, Jaleesa Johnson Ombretta Di Dio, Adonyss Illuzion & Brandon Potter. Showtime is at 9 pm and no cover. 

It's war! 

After making the social hour at Friday-favorite "Top of the Bay," get ready to head into town for a full night of drag entertainment. 

Calling all my Drag Racers, the time we have all been waiting for since the crowning of Season 9 Winner Sasha Velour is here. 

Our Season 9 queens are on tour and hitting San Diego this Friday at 8 pm at the Balboa Theatre. 

"War on The Catwalk" stars Sasha, Shea, Farrah, Nina, Alexis, Aja and is hosted by the Southern Belle with Fierceness Tuck Trinity

Tickets are still on sale with VIP options that come with meet & greets. Don't miss this opportunity to see your favorite season 9 queens.

And congratulations to Kirby Carlock and Santio Cupon, winners of the SDPIX ticket giveaway for this event.

DIVAS is back at Rich's

Now if "War on the Catwalk" isn't local enough for you then make sure you reserve your table early for Divas at Rich's Nightclub. 

This week's special guests include Miss Gay United States 2017 Shae Shae La'Reese! And Strawberry Corncakes. Along with resident Divas Landa Plenty, Kickxy Vixen and Dayamis Styles .

Doors open at 7 pm ; Showtime is at 8 pm.

Calling all voguers and runway stompers!

It is time to bring it to the floor for "Back 2 Basics: Red and Black Kiki Ball" at the San Diego LGBT Community Center on August 12 from 5 to 9 pm. Free entry and 16+. 

They will be screening "Kiki" a recently released documentary on "ball culture" free dinner and non-alcoholic drinks, performances by Adonyss Illuzion and Strawberry Corncakes, and you! Trophies for category winners!

Being a ballroom child of the House Of Infiniti I'm really excited about this event.

This is a huge part of gay history that I don't really get to see represented much.

Shoot, I may hit the runway and show the children how it's done!

CityFest takes over Hillcrest

There is one event other than Pride that we who live in Hillcrest are proud and excited for: Cityfest.

A celebration of all that makes Hillcrest great, with over 150,000 in attendees. Come party with us as CityFest showcases food, music, artists, and crafts.

Now if you don't live in Hillcrest I would suggest calling a Lyft/Uber. Seeing that CityFest is a huge block party going down Fifth Ave, driving to the event and parking is gonna be tricky.

Before I get out of here I wanted to give a few shout outs!

Last week I got to attend Techniche, a night of tech house & techno at Rich's. I caught up with the promoter and resident DJ Myxzlplix.  I asked what his inspiration was behind Techniche.

He told me that he had been playing different genres of music but with Tech House he wanted to find the right venue and give something to San Diego that he thought they really needed which was a night to play a sound that is currently capturing the world. It's popular in Europe and everywhere else including some parts of the US.

I then asked why Tech House? Myxzlplix told me that he has played all genres of house music from deep to soulful. But was energized by the new sound of tech house and what it was doing to the world.

I couldn't agree more.

Now I'm a soulful house queen all day, but there is something so electrifying when it comes to those tech house beats.  Plus being accompanied by Rich's stellar light system, it's definitely a night you want to check out.

I also want to give a shout out to John Joesph and the team at LE Parties for yet another amazing pool party at the Lafayette Hotel. If you haven't been to one yet, you're in luck: They will be throwing another one on September 4, the Monday of Matinee weekend.

Make sure you look out for the story I'm doing on John Joesph. Coming to the cellphone screen near you.

Well, that's it for me this week, it's been a real slice. I'm Jinx Mirage and I don't care how far, I will go the distance.
