Heat Freedom Day and Pool Party
Soak up the sun and get that summer tan with another edition of the LE Parties & SDPIX Pool Party series.
Now I would suggest getting your tickets early while they are still cheap,
Tickets will be $20 at the door.
They will also have table services with only seven tables available so get there early. You also have the option of getting one of the fabulous poolside rooms or poolside balcony rooms. Which any pool party goer knows, it’s always better at a pool party when you have your own room.
House Nation at Rich’s Nightclub - 4th of July Celebration
Keep the weekend going, because I know most of you have Monday off with checking out “House Nation” at Rich’s Nightclub. House Nation is Hillcrest newest monthly house music night, taking place the first Monday of every month.
Join me and the sounds of Richard Vission, better known by his stage name “Humpty”. This Canadian House music producer, remixer and DJ will bring all the funky beats true house music fans live for. Hit the dancefloor with me Monday, July 10 pm to 2 am
Also, this weekend I’ll be taking over the SDPIX Snapchat account, join on my adventure this weekend and witness the epic fourth of July Weekend. You know never know you may make it on our story. For Details on how to follow our Snapchat account check the @SDPIX Instagram/Facebook or my own @Jinx Mirage.
Now for what I did last weekend. It was super chill nothing much to report...
Just kidding -- you know I’m always checking out what’s new and hot in Hillcrest/San Diego.
DIVAS at Rich's
I got to check out “Ms. CUCU” herself Cynthia Lee Fountaine from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8/9 and the rest of the queens last Friday night for “San Diego Divas at Rich’s”
I got a chance to check the girls of Diva and their special guest Cynthia Lee Fountaine and Ongina of Season one Drag Race along with local girls Kickxy Vixen, Landa Plenty and Lolita von Tease.
I got to sit down with some of them for a little interview: Ms. Cucu was up first.
When chatting with Cynthia Lee Fountaine I asked her what her best experience was being on RPDR Seasons 8/9 and this is what she had to say, “Not breaking the elimination pants from season eight, don’t gGoodwilldwill and buy cheaper clothes cause Mama Ru will clock you out, especially Michelle Visage.
"But basically, the most beautiful experience I learned was I had the opportunity to show a bit more of myself and to show the entire fan base that it’s not about cucu it is about performance, entertaining and being crazy and enjoy your dream. That is my message to the entire world.”
She was amazing and such an entertainer if you get the chance to see her make sure you do.
I also got to catch up with Season one fashionista Ongina and see what’s next for the OG queen.
She informed me that she has recently become a contributor to amfAR.org, The Foundation for AIDS Research. They are doing a new campaign called “I’m Epic” which is the countdown to the cure.
"AmfAR is close to human testing and finding the cure for HIV and they launched this new campaign for pride this month. You can check Ongina’s contribution at amfAR.org. I had to tell Ongina she was my pick to win Season one, as she replied with “and your winning for All Stars 3!"
You heard if first here people ONGINA FOR ALL STARS 3, we’re with you girl.
Before heading home, I had a little chat with local Diva Kickxy Vixen as we also celebrated here Dragiversary as well.
Kickxy has been doing drag for four years, two years professionally and I had to ask what inspires Kickxy to be Kickxy?
And she had this to say “Villainous bitches, comic queens. Vixens and woman who are empowered to really be themselves, that what inspires me”.
And I also wanted to know what is next for her?
She let me know, she wants to establish her name and build here in her community.
And that, yes, Drag Race is the ultimate stage for any drag queen and she would be lying if she didn’t want to be on the show. But it wasn’t going to keep her from being there for her community and if it happens it happens.
Big up to you girl, you can catch Kickxy at San Diego Diva’s every month and a few other places all over Hillcrest.
That’s it for me this week, hope you guys enjoyed and check out these other events happening this weekend. I’m Jinx Mirage and Milk Dud is not a good look for me.
