Recently I got to visit quite a few Orlando nightlife spots on my long weekend there. Parliament House celebrated their 40th anniversary and Deborah Cox was absolutely fierce! The energy was overwhelming and the crowd had such a good time. I got to spend an evening at Southern Nights Orlando as well, and it was a blast! Finally, I made sure to see Leigh Shannon’s Cabaret at Hamburger Mary’s Orlando, which I enjoyed immensely (as always). I’ll be back very soon! Now here’s the scoop on this week’s events. Lots of love to you all!
Thursday August 6
If you live for the applause, you’ll want to participate in the amateur strip contest tonight at Bradley’s on 7th in Tampa! Joey Brooks hosts, and she performs a special drag number before the boys take off their clothes! $200 in cash and prizes will be given out to the winner and the runner-up, so show off your sexy side and if the audience likes what it sees, you may walk away a little richer! Today’s hottest music and mixes will be spun by DJ Danny Morris all night long!
Flamingo Resort in St. Petersburg hosts a talent show every Thursday at 10 p.m. called “SoYouThinkYouCan?” If you can turn it out with a great drag performance, come on out and compete! The contest isn’t just limited to drag…if you can sing, dance, do comedy, or anything that would wow an audience, you should enter the competition. The audience decides on the winner, and the winner receives cash and a gift certificate! Anjila Cavalier and Aspen Love are your hostesses this evening.
Unwind tonight at Southern Nights Tampa, and rewind too! Tonight and every Thursday night is “Retro Rewind Night,” with music courtesy of DJ Ryan Weiss. If you’re a fan of old soul and rock ‘n’ roll, you’ll love the atmosphere at Southern Nights tonight. There is no cover this evening for partiers 21 and up.
Friday August 7
You are encouraged to get down and dirty this weekend at Sawmill Resort in Dade City! This weekend is their Summer Lumberjack Weekend, and there will be lots of fun and naughty events such as a jock strap contest, a scavenger hunt, a garage party, and even a mud wrestling contest! Call to reserve your cabin now: (352) 583-0664.
Club Main Street in Lakeland is kicking off a new monthly party called Bear Traxxx. If you’re a bear or if you love bears, come on over starting at 10 p.m. and party with your hostess, Kathryn Nevets, and lots of sexy, furry dancers! Over $150 in cash and prizes will be given away tonight to the winners of the “sexy bear in underwear” contest. Woof!
Saturday August 8
Parliament House brings back one of my favorite yearly events, the Decades Party! Cover is $10 and proceeds go to Orlando Pride. There will be ’80s music playing in the disco, ’90s hits in the video bar, and all the top 40 hits you love today in the Infinity bar. The Footlight Players will put on two special “decade anthems” shows, one at 10 p.m. and one at midnight.
Sunday August 9
If you haven’t stopped by The Club Orlando recently, I hear they are doing some remodeling, adding to the ambiance at Orlando’s only sauna club for men. Stop by this afternoon at 2 p.m. for a poolside barbecue! The food is unlimited and there will be beverages as well. Men 18 and up are welcome, and men 18 to 24 get in for free with the purchase of a room or locker. For more information, call (407) 425-5005.
Wednesday August 12
Tonight is the final night of the pre-national qualifiers for the Karaoke World Championships! Enigma in St. Petersburg plays host to this fun event, in which the area’s top singers battle for a spot in the national finals, and hopefully a chance to represent the United States at the world championships in Singapore! The final night of competition begins at 10 p.m.
