Jinx has weathered the storm this week and come through the other side with this exciting edition of "Out & About."  

"What’s up Hillcrest? I hope you have settled into 2018 and are ready to get back out into the scene. This week we are saving the Mother Earth, swinging with some hip cats and kicking it with Kickxy Vixen and the ladies of San Diego DIVAS."

A Healthier Climate For All

Jinx says this week Hillcrest needs to give back and take care of our Mother Earth and there is no better way to do that than at EarthJustice Goes Uptown at Uptown Tavern. "Honestly, we only have the one planet. Uptown will be donating ten percent of all proceeds from that night to EarthJustice who go out and fight to protect our MotherEarth and after to people who break the laws against our dear Mother Nature."

Two of the Best and Swingiest Singers Come to Hillcrest

If you like jazz and swing music come out and see Mark Winkler and Cheryl Bentyne at Martinis Above Fourth on January 11. "It's going to be a great night of music," says Jinx. "An upbeat night, definitely something that will bring up the hairs on the back of your head." 

A Party With aTwist

"John Joseph has done it again, she's brought another kind of game show to the party scene with Pony Up Party at Flicks!" Jinx says John hasn't given any specific details of the party, "But I mean, the party is called 'Pony Up' and it is John Joseph so you know it's going to be a whole bunch of dirty kinda fun!" 

New Beginnings at San Diego DIVAS

This week at Divas at Rich's, they welcome Jade Sotomayor from season one of RuPaul's Drag Race. "Along with Kickxy Vixen, the new show director, and DIVAS girls Dayamis Styles, Lolita Von Tease and Vanity Jones.This is also their three-year anniversary!"

A Night of Comedy

Next Tuesday at Martinis Above Fourth presents Hillcrest Comedy Night with Jaleesa Johnson. "This is someone that everyone in Hillcrest should go see. She is extremely funny, extremely knowledgeable and honestly an all-around amazing act. I got to catch Jaleesa with Brandon Potter and the rest of the Hillcrest comedians over at #1 Fifth Avenue. If you're looking for a night of good laughs and want to support your community, this is definitely the event you want to head to."

Jinx's Shout Outs: 

So I caught up with Kickxy Vixen after the announcement of her position at DIVAS as new Show Director and part owner to see what she was most excited about and what she plans to bring to the show.  Here is what she had to say. 

Kickxy Vixen -- I’m most excited about adding my Kickxy flair. Not that the show is not great as it is. But there is always place for improvement. I think having a performer and also part producer gives you a different perspective. I’m excited to learn the ins and outs. Not that I haven’t produced shows before. But Rob and Scott really know what they are doing and I’m excited to learn and keep growing as a drag entertainer and producer. 

I plan to bring more attention to detail, more production numbers, more cohesive looks, and also step up my marketing and graphics skills. I’m also excited to work with my fellow Divas and create a tighter bond.

Final Thought:

Well, that’s it for me this week. Hope you guys had an awesome weekend. If you haven’t found what you're looking for in the events I mentioned please check the list below for other Hillcrest happenings. I’m Jinx Mirage and you stay dry San Diego.
