What's up San Diego, It's your Hillcrest Socialite getting you ready for Labor Day Weekend. Hope you guys are ready for all the parties, BBQ and Matinee.  Because I know I'm ready.

LET'S KICK THIS COLUMN OFF WITH A LITTLE BIT OF THE ARTS:

Thursday, August 31, come out for a night of jazz and soul at Martinis Above Fourth for Betty Bryant in an "Evening of Jazz with Betty Bryant".

This living Jazz legend isn't only a singer but also a pianist. 

She performs blues, jazz and original numbers with a light, swingy touch. She has traveled the world over with her soulful tunes and now brings them to you. See link for tickets and table reservations. 

TOP OF THE BAY TO KICK-OFF YOUR LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

Friday, September 1, come hang out with Dj Rick Betta at SDPIX presents Top Of The Bay. The summer roof top party series that kicks off any weekend in San Diego the right way. 

Enjoy cocktails, music and the beautiful views of Little Italy. Meet new friends or meet up with old ones. Make sure to catch this rooftop party before the summer's over. 

MATINEE IS BACK! WITH A WEEKEND FULL OF EVENTS!  

The first main event kicks off on Friday, September 1, with "LaLeche at Rich's". Don't let the name full you, this milky inspired circuit party will be HOT! HOT! HOT!

THE STATE OF EUPHORIA!

Rich's Nightclub brings back "EUPHORIA," an after-hours party like no other in Hillcrest. 

This installment of Euphoria will feature a live show by La Bouche. Now I know some of you Gabies (That's Gay Babies) probably don't recognize the name. 

But you will when you hear their dance hits " Be my Lover", "Where do you go" and my favorite "Sweet Dreams!"

GENTLEMEN, TWINKS, DADDIES, BEARS OF ALL AGES

I salute you with the third main event from Matinee: Air Force at Music Box featuring Phill Romano, with DJ Dan De Leon opening. 

If you haven't been to Music Box this will probably be the party of all parties this weekend. 

I've been to Music Box for other events, but this venue is three stories, indoor overlooking the stage and dance floor. It will be a Matinee event like no other. 

TAKE ACTION!

And on Monday, because the guys at Matinee know you love to party all night long, they will be holding an after-hours event at Spin Nightclub -- Action! featuring Dj and Drag Race legend Nina Flowers
