What’s HOT South Florida (9/12 - 9/18)
Last Wednesday New York Grilled Cheese hosted a Cheese-A-Rama which was a fundraising event to benefit the Smart Ride and was hosted by Daisy Deadpetals and Nicole Halliwell. Congrats to Leor and his team for a great event. Also on Wednesday I had the privilege of once again seeing Diana Ross perform at the Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood and her concerts are just beautiful and she is breathtaking. Needless to say, I had a wonderful time!
Saturday night Discotekka featured one of their famous Foam parties and as usual packed the night with guys and girls who wanted to get wet! Also on Saturday night and then again on Sunday Marytrini celebrated her birthday at Coliseum Miami with a theme party entitle Asia. Vegas’ production on Saturday was amazing and the show on Sunday was, as usual, filled with laughter and drag!
Early on Sunday I headed to Scandals to see my good friend, Howard Merritt, spin the classics on the inside. This was in addition to DJ Katastrophy and Lil P spinning on the outside. Howard was one of the biggest DJs in New York City in the ’70s and ’80s and now mostly concentrates on managing, but it was nice to see a master at work! Later that night it was on to Ramrod for their 19th anniversary (they also celebrated the 5th anniversary of Pig Dance on Saturday night) celebration. Congrats to Zack and Steve for 19 wonderful years and here’s wishing them many more to come!
