A week ago Monday, Scandals hosted their annual Corn Queen Pageant and congrats goes out to this year’s winner, J.S. Monroe. On Tuesday night the Greater Fort Lauderdale Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce held their monthly mixer at the beautiful Gallery One Hotel. Directly afterwards we headed over to the Broward Center for the opening night of Newsies. On Wednesday, we were invited to a luncheon to meet the cast, which is always amazing. On Thursday, Village Pub hosted the 2015 Smart Ride It’s a Wrap Closing Party and lots of riders came out to reminisce about their journeys. On Friday, the GLBX held their 2nd annual Artopia fundraiser at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, with hostess Daisy Deadpetals. After Artopia we headed over to the grand opening of Matty’s on the Drive at The Gables at Wilton Park, and we here at Hotspots would like to welcome Matty back! Later that night was Ramrod’s monthly Mandance filled with leather men and their admirers. The 2nd annual Seed Food & Wine Festvial (Vegan/Plant Based Life) at Mana Wynwood took place on Saturday and Sunday and was a huge success. I would like to congratulate my friends Alison and Michelle for a job well done! Saturday night, the Manor Complex celebrated their 6th Anniversary with headliners Christian Stoinev and Scooby from America’s Got Talent. The show was amazing and the crowd clearly enjoyed it if their roars were any indication. Congrats to Brett, Paul and Gary for 6 fabulous years!

If you are like me, you were not very patient during the 4 years it took Adele to put out her new album “25,” but fret not as it was worth the wait. After the huge success of “21,” Adele considered quitting the music industry and going out on a high. However, Adele decided to take a hiatus instead and raise her son
According to Adele, “My last record was a break up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making-up for lost time. Making-up for everything I ever did and never did.”
The lead single, “Hello”, was a critical and commercial success, topping the charts in 28 countries including right here in the United States, where “Hello” became the first single ever to sell one million downloads in a release week.
