Friday IS fun…colder than hell, but FUN! All the usual holiday events are happening of course…Dina Martina, Ham for the Holidays, Cinderella, Nutcracker, etc. A special one off event is Voices Rising: The Best of the New – starring Jennifer Lisa Vest at Washington Hall and “Featuring the Fiercest Young Queer Artists of Color in the Northwest”.
For the more nightlifey crowd, you have the option of two monthly events with seasonal themes. Hussler is going all “Hussler XXXmas” tonight at Pony; if it’s anything like last night’s Pony event, Dustin K.’s off the hook birfday bash, it should be hella fun. PLUS, those Darling Boys, Kerry & James, will be shaking their tail feathers on the bar and special guest RECESS will be in the house.
Meanwhile, over at The Wildrose, you can celebrate a “Lezbro Christmas” with DJ’s L.A. Kendall, Tony Burns; host ArtStar, and Special Guest Fannie Mae Darling visting from her native Portland, OR. Cheap drinks/cheap cover make for a lovely holiday treat.
There’s a photo op happening at Cuff Complex on December 9 and 10…the annual “Pictures With Santa” event produced by Seattle Men in Leather, a fundraiser for Chicken Soup Brigade.
