Last Monday was the 3rd “Dancing With The Stars South Florida” event produced by and a benefit for the Brian Neal Foundation. The event was once again held at the Manor and featured many dance teams all vying for the title. In the end it the winners were Krystal and Felipe of the Boardwalk. Congrats to them and all the teams for a fabulous show. A special congrats goes to my good friend, Michael Festa, who received the Outstanding Community Service. Afterwards, I headed to Bill’s for Jennifer McClain’s (another friend for many years) Cast Party which happens every Monday at Bill’s starting at 10 pm. That night she had special guests the cast of Addam’s Family and they were a whole bunch of fun. The very next night I got to see the opening night of the Addams Family at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and it was terrific. It was Creepy, Cooky and all together fabulous. It’s playing through this Sunday, April 21st, so if you have the chance buy a ticket, actually buy 2 and take a friend as you will need someone to laugh with! On Wednesday, I went over to Alibi for Game Show night (which by the way if you haven’t been to, it’s hysterical) to meet Craig Meistel (owner of Revolution) and a few of his employees: Cindy (Manager) and cast members Sasha Colby (Miss continental 2012), and Maya Andrews. Also there was Corrie Boyd and Alison Thomas as well as Alibi Owners Mark and Jackson.
All weekend was Miami Beach Gay Pride with parties happening all over, and the main event taking place on Sunday starting at 12 noon with the parade and continuing through almost 10 pm ending with Adam Lambert Live!
