Hey everyone! What a crazy few weeks it’s been since my last post. I’ve had one event after another and one good time after another. A few weeks ago we had my OUT Magazine / STOLI Nighthawk launch event at Here Lounge which had a tremendous turnout. I got to meet so many sweet people and big supporters of my events, OUT Magazine, and even bigger supporters of STOLI drinks! HA!
We are now featuring one of my favorite bartenders in LA, Brandon MacKay, who works with me at Here Lounge on our LA Nighthawk page as well as one of my favorite DJ’s, Derek Monteiro. His bio and DJ playlist are up now so make sure to check those out.
We recently relaunched our Friday nights with a new fun summer theme calling it SUMMER OF HYPE. Beach balls, rafts, palm trees, lifeguards; all inside of a club! It looks pretty awesome and boy have people been coming out to party with us every Friday. Now keep this date in mind because it’s a special one; on Friday Aug 24th at SUMMER OF HYPE (at Ultra Suede/The Factory) is my birthday bash! My birthday gets bigger and better every year and always promises to be a good time. Hope to see you there.
This weekend a huge gang of us from LA are heading to Las Vegas to celebrate my business partner, Paul Nicholls’ birthday, at a few different parties: Friday we are at Stripper Circus Vegas at SHARE Nightclub w/ DJ Beau Dasher (LA) and a live performance by Rhea Litre, Saturday night we are back at SHARE as DJ Pornstar comes to town with his slew of hot porn boys, and then Sunday I am back as the Special Guest DJ at the LUXOR Pool Party which I can’t wait to spin at.

I can’t believe it is the middle of July already and I’ve only been to the beach twice…I need to get out more! HA! Hope you all had an amazing 4th of July. I spent the day with friends at a pool party and then we all made our way into Boystown and partied at my club Stripper Circus at Here Lounge that night. DJ Chi Chi LaRue played an amazing set and Ryan Adames performed live. He is so freaking adorable and was great on stage. Check out his new single “Bang (feat. Chris Crocker)” on iTunes now!
No rest for the wicked for me this week! My calendar is stacked with events. Besides my three weekly events, I’ve started DJing for fun and this week alone I’m spinning three big events including being the Special Guest DJ on Sunday in Las Vegas at the Luxor Pool party called TEMPTATION SUNDAYS presented by QVegas and hosted by J.Son. The pool party happens every Sunday but this week it happens to be apart of FABULOUS: A GAY CELEBRATION LAS VEGAS 2012 WEEKEND! Neon Hitch, Cazwell, Sherry Vine, Jessica & Hunter, Jonny McGovern, and a talented group of DJ’s headline this one of a kind festival happening July 12th – 15th.

Also this Saturday July 14th, my boys of the IMPULSE GROUP (apart of AIDS Healthcare Foundation) are throwing their annual summer pool party, SOAKED, from 12-5 PM. This party was EVERYTHING last year and they stepped it up a notch this year. You guys should all be there.

BTW, have you guys heard the new Havana Brown song “We Run The Night” featuring Pitbull?? It’s my new obsession! Oh and the Olympics are right around the corner. I love watching the Olympics and after seeing pictures of the US Men’s Gymnastics team; I will be GLUED to my television everyday. THEY ARE FIIIINNNEEE! ☺
Until next time, work hard, play harder, and be safe! LOVE!
