What's up Hillcrest, I'm back for your weekly installment of Out & About, bringing all that's popping in Hillcrest.

This week we have some laughs, Pride and goodbyes.

So let's kick this column off with some laughs. 

A Night of Comedy! 

This Thursday at Martinis Above Fourth, come laugh your ass off with this quick wit, candid, I-cannot-believe-she-said that comedian "Suzanne Westenhoefer irresistible Humor." 

Suzanne Westenhoefer was born on March 31, 1961 in Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA.

She is known for her work on Suzanne Westenhoefer: A Bottom on Top (2007), A Family Affair (2001) and Rattler (2000).

Top of the Bay! 

Friday's are for getting off work early, starting your vacation and Hitting up Top Of The Bay Presented by SDPIX with Dj Rick Betta.

Come enjoy the last few Top Of The Bay's before there over. This roof top party is best for making friends, business connections or just taking in the views.  Top of the Bay starts at 6 pm with a social hour and then kicks into party mode at 7 pm 

Check SDPIX for the free shuttle service. 

Those DIVAS Are Back!

Divas are back this week, with all your favorite locals queens this Friday at Rich's San Diego. Doors open at 7 pm, Showtime at 8 pm sharp.

PRIDE ISN'T OVER YET

This Saturday, September 9, Come join the 10th Annual Celebration of South Bay's LGBTQ Pride. Come enjoy a day of music, dancing, artisans with great food, vendors, and exhibitors. 

Be part of the fantastic people celebrating equality, diversity, and love for all.

Laura Jane is the emcee of our main stage and the DJ stage is on the beach for the best party around! Don't miss it!

"it's so hard, to say goodbye to yesterday yeeee" ( in Boyz-II-Men Voice) 

Farewell to Numbers!

This Sunday we say goodbye to 25 years of club lights, drag queens, harnesses, bears, wet strips contest, patio smokes and some of the strongest drinks I've ever had.  

 At 2 pm September 10, we say goodbye to you old buddy and remember the good times, the bad times and times we can't remember because we honestly had to much fun. Like seriously there were times I don't remember leaving the building, anyway. 

Cum out (that's wasn't a typo) for the Last Hurrah of Numbers and as we reminisce, enjoy some performances from all the local entertainers and drink the last of the booze and say goodbye to a friend that never judged us or complained how much we came over.

And never got mad when we threw up. 

Numbers we love you and will miss you. Thanks for all the memories 

R.I.P Numbers

Movie Night!

Get the popcorn and tea ready movie lovers! FilmOut is presenting the San Diego Premiere of "Cherry Pop" on Wednesday, September 13 at 7 pm t the Landmark Hillcrest Cinemas. This hilarious backstage comedy stars Bob the Drag Queen and Detox. All the drama and hijinx of the makeup room is explored in this film from director Assaad Yacoub

ShoutOuts

I would like to give a huge shoutout and congrats to Michael Saltsman as he is the new owner of Uptown Tavern along with his business partner Scott. 

I got to attend their anniversary party/ re-opening last Thursday and it was fabulous. The theme was 50's greaser garage seeing how that uptown was actually a garage back then. 

All the staff in the tight white shirts with rolled up sleeves and tight dark denim jeans. Trust the heatwave wasn't the only thing making me hot. 

Oh, and the food, so let me talk about this Chicken Waffle on a Stick. I know, hold your gasp.

Imagine a chicken tender dipped in maple syrup then battered and fried. O-M-GOOD JESUS, when that hot maple shot to the back my of throat. I was like woah that's a sinsation I haven't felt in awhile. I clutched my pearls hunny. 

Needless to say, Uptown Tavern is in amazing hands and has already started new weekly events like the AHS Cult Viewing Party. Which started this past Tuesday and will continue every Tuesday until the season finale. 

AHS Cult Viewing Party will air the show at 8:30 pm without commercials and be hosted by a loving cast of queens over the next few weeks. 

Which will include Drag Race All Stars Season 2 winner Chad Michaels, Kicky Vixen, Bebe Gunn, Ginger Douglas and Jay Heimbach

So make sure you swing by Uptown Tavern and see all the new that is coming. And if you see a man with more tattoos than teeth that Michael Saltsman tell him I sent you. 

I'm Jinx Mirage and I love hot maple!
