How’s it going, San Diego? I’m your Hillcrest Socialite Jinx Mirage bringing you all the fun that’s going down this weekend. So sit back, relax and let’s get this weekend started. 

The United States is Tripping

So what do we need to keep us from hitting rock bottom? Bad Heroine! Drag superstar (and recent parolee) Varla Jean Merman’s new show pays tribute to the inspiring women who have inspired her to think about becoming inspirational. Will Varla Jean be an inspiration…or end up on Intervention?

Make tracks to this year’s most addictive comedy cabaret at Martinis Above Fourth. 

Networking on Top Of The Bay

This weekend kicks off with Top Of The Bay at the Porto Vista Hotel. This rooftop party is the best way to kick off any weekend in San Diego

Enjoy networking, cocktails and top notch DJ’s while enjoying the sights of the Marina and all that Little Italy has to offer. 

There is also a FREE BUS SHUTTLE,

The Year of the Sapphire

Join The Center this Saturday for the Sapphire Gala Anniversary at the Beautiful Hotel Del Coronado. From what was once a single answering machine set-up in a utility closet. 

The San Diego LGBT Community Center has grown into a thriving community center that provided more than 65,000 service visits last year alone. There Sapphire Anniversary represents 45 years of service, and they want to celebrate with you! 

Our 45th-anniversary gala will be a three-part-spectacular! Start at the pre-party with cocktails and a fantastic silent auction in the garden. 

Then enjoy the main event with a 3-course gourmet gala dinner, and top it all off with some extra fun at this year's after-party, full of dancing, live music, and a featured DJ. 

What other surprises do we have in store? You'll have to join them to find out! Dinner seating is limited to 700, but you can also join the fun at the after-party only

Thank You

I want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone to who nominated me for The 42nd Annual Nicky Awards. I had an idea that I may have been nominated for Outstanding Writer/Columnist but was greatly surprised to be nominated for Outstanding Male Personality. Along with Spotlight being nominated for Outstanding Entertainment/Group.

Now I know everyone says it’s really just an honor to be nominated.

But I really want to win these. I mean who doesn’t, especially since it’s my first year. So make sure you tell your Daddy, sugar mama, co-workers, besties, lesties and all your ex’s and future ex’s to vote for Jinx Mirage for The 42nd Annual Nicky Awards. 

Well, that’s it for me this week, hope you guys enjoy the weekend. And make sure to check the list below for more events taking place this weekend. I’m Jinx Mirage and I’ll see you under the Stars
