Jim Winsor’s Out & About: Labor Day weekend party guide

For those of you not heading north this weekend for the two Labor Day weekend mega-parties in Los Angeles, here's a quick guide to some of the major events going on down here this weekend:

T Dance on the Bay

The premier party of the week looks to me to be Michael Mack's T Dance on the Bay, this Sunday from noon to 4 pm. The three-hour cruise around the harbor on the Spirit of San Diego will feature music by DJs Luis Perez and Marcel Hetu.

These floating Michael Mack parties are always a lot of fun ... you can check out photos from past ones here. And the forecast for this coming Sunday is about 80 and sunny – the perfect weather for encouraging shirtlessness!

Tickets are only $35 pre-sale ($45 at the boat), and can be purchased in person at AZ Heat Tanning, Mankind, Urban Mo's and online here.

Labor Day "Hard at Werq" Weekend at Eden

Eden has an exciting lineup of events planned for this holiday weekend, beginning with Fubar with DJ James Adams on Friday, and Fire with DJ Jon Sautter on Saturday. Cover charges for those nights will be $5 and $10 respectively.

And even bigger things are afoot on Sunday, with a Labor Day 'Get Lei'd' Luau Buffet from 6 to 9 pm out on the patio. There'll be Polynesian music, island cocktails and firedancers; cover is $25 in advance (enter discount code "discount5") or $30 at the door, and includes free admission to the club later that night.

And later that night is going to be a blast because the Perry Twins are spinning, until 2 am! Cover for that event (without the Luau) will be $10.

Numbers Labor Day Weekend

Numbers has two big event planned for this weekend. The first is their Labor Day installment of BearNight, where once again bears, cubs, chasers and other critters will take over the club. DJ Will Z will be spinning the best in top 40, dance, pop and hip hop music and video in the Sideshow Bar, while DJ Jon Williams tearing it up with high energy dance and house in the Big Room.

The event will also feature great drink specials as well as grilled-to-order eats out on the patio. Cover is only $5 before 10 pm, and $7 after, and the fun goes from 9 pm to 2 am.

Then on Sunday Global Male Productions will celebrate their two-year anniversary with a special Labor Day Eye Candy Party. DJ Myxzlplix will be celebrating his birthday as well, spinning the best in top 40, hip hop, neo soul and reggaeton, and there'll be drink specials and giveaways all night to boot.

The party goes from 10 pm to 2 am, and is $5, or free before 11 pm with a flyer, email or text.

Labor Day Weekend at Rich's

Not surprisingly, Rich's is planning a big holiday weekend for us, too.

Not only big, but massive. Yep, on Saturday they're having another Massive party, and you know what that means: After-hours until 4 am!

DJ Nikno and DJ Taj will be spinning the main room, while DJ Kiki will be serving up pop and hip hop in the front. And there'll be a special performance by Jessica Sutta of Pussycat Dolls fame, singing her No. 1 breakout song Show Me:

And on Sunday, Rich's moves it outdoors with their all-new Super Beach T Dance, from 5 pm till midnight. The big side lot will be open with bars, dance floor, giveaways, special performances, lasers and even pyrotechnics ... and of course, go go boys galore. With music provided by DJ Nikno and DJ Luis Perez.

Recovery Party at Urban Mo's

What three-day weekend would be complete without the traditional Monday Recovery Party at Urban Mo's! DJ Taj will be spinning it from 2 to 9 pm.
