GOING OUT: Dining Out for Life, Wednesday, December 2nd

December 1, 2009

Happy December!

In light of World AIDS Day and HIV awareness, Dining Out for Life in Louisville gets set for another year. The premise of DOFL? You dine out, and the restaurant donates proceeds that day to HIV/AIDS organizations. For our city, that will be the House of Ruth.

To get in on this, find a participating restaurant and go chow down!

Tomorrow, December 2
All Day

GOING OUT: Tonight – A Walk to Remember at HOTEL

September 10, 2009

HOTEL Nightclub will be hosting a special Hard Candy event tonight for the Louisville AIDS Walk, which takes place on Sunday. While the events are normally free, all attendees are expected to donate a minimum of $5, to help benefit the AIDS Walk. If you have been reading the blog, the Walk has suffered from a huge drop in sponsorships, so they need all the help they can get.

AIDS Walk representatives will be there if you want to sign up (it’s not too late  to donate or register either, please visit the Web site to do so). DJ Syimone will also be spinning and $4 Absolut Vodka specials are on the cocktail list, so come on out and support a good cause!

Tonight, September 10
11 PM – 4 AM

Sweet heat! It’s a party!

The ladies of Fleur de Lez are throwing a ball and you’re invited!

It’s free, but there is a cash bar for cocktails, with all proceeds going to Fairness Campaign and Fleur de Lez. Stop on by!

Speaking of Fairness, it’s not too late to volunteer for the KY State Fair. They’re still looking for people to fill in some shifts — plus you get in free! Call (502) 893-0788 or email to sign up.

GOING OUT x 2: Fleur de Lez Happy Hour / The Jarics at HOTEL’s Hard Candy

August 13, 2009

Two awesome things are going on tonight … think you can handle it?

First, our blogging sisters Fluer de Lez, a site for queer women in Louisville, is hosting their first ever Happy Hour at Zanzabar, the site of last week’s G3 Illustrated soiree. Zanzabar was known as the happening spot in the past decade and after recent renovations and a successful opening, they may take back that title. There will be drink specials tonight (of course), but you’ll also get a chance to meet some fellow members in your community!

After that, you can head on downtown to Hotel‘s Hard Candy, a monthly night of GLBTQ entertainment, and meet The Jarics! Aden and Jordan Jaric, two of Falcon Studio‘s hottest stars, will be the honorary hosts, giving away prizes and mingling with the crowd. Hotel is also making this summer steamier with $4 Absolut cocktails the entire night! And it’s FREE!

GOING OUT: Aüdiolüst at Renbarger’s Brewhaus

August 12, 2009

We’ve been wondering where to go for fresh electronic jams and dancing since the unfortunate collapse of Pink Door. But wonder no more.

Aüdiolüst, a weekly event at the newly renovated Brewhaus on Baxter Avenue has stepped up to fill in that missing piece. You get great dance music from DJs all over the country, drinks by Absolut Vodka and … it’s free! This week, the Brewhaus and BARCODE Entertainment will be hosting Lady Foursquare, Dufy and Figure, so go!

Tonight, 10 PM – 4 AM

Renbarger’s Brewhaüs

GOING OUT: G3 Soiree at Zanzibar tonight

August 6, 2009

Tonight G3 Illustrated gets ready to host another fun soiree, this time at newly remodeled Zanzibar. Known as the hotspot in the 1990s, this trendy Germantown restaurant becomes a happening bar after dinner hours, and it’s popular with the young professional crowd. As you might guess, there will be drink specials and complementary h’or doerves.  Get there early!

Guess who’s coming to town! That’s right, the one and only Ongina from Logo’s hit show RuPaul’s Drag Race is making a pit stop at Hotel Nightclub and you can see her!

Even though the beauty didn’t win, she has quickly become one of the most recognizable stars in the country, pushing conventional drag standards with her haute couture wardrobe (and not wearing wigs or taping, like most queens). She won over a lot of viewers with her charm and personality, but also touched many by revealing she was HIV positive on the show. She’s fabulous to boot and a role model for the community.

Here’s an interview of the starlet:

If you can, RESERVE a table (phone/email listed below)! This place will be packed!

10 PM-4 AM

Hotel Nightclub
410 S. Fourth St


Free! But to reserve a table, please contact Daniel Cole by email or at (502) 548-4082 (minimum one bottle purchase).

GOING OUT: G3 and Night Racing at Churchill Downs

July 2, 2009

Ready, set, party!

G3 Illustrated will be having its monthly soiree in conjunction with Downs After Dark, a new summer event Churchill Downs started a short while ago as an experiment. The last event was sort of disastrous as there were long lines to vendors and restrooms, but it looks like these concerns have been addressed.

When you enter, follow the signs that say “G3 Skye Terrace.” Weather permitting, this should be a great night for racing!

7 PM-12 AM

Churchill Downs
700 Central Ave

$6 for admission
For Parking: Free Parking in the Longfield lot off of Longfield Avenue; $5 after lot is full.

Tomorrow: Laugh-Out Proud at Comedy Caravan, 8-11 PM

June 29, 2009

With the news about Michael Jackson and Farrah’s (and Billy Mays!) deaths, and the Iranian and Honduran crises, you probably need a good laugh right about now.

Comedy Caravan is here to help! The annual Kentuckiana Pride Festival event will feature Fairness Campaign‘s standout Kyle Riggs, along with several different acts from across the country who will have you in tears. Can you think of a better way to end pride month?

Don’t believe me? Watch our resident funnyman for yourself:
