Do you like drag shows but you don’t like staying out late? I know sometimes I don’t want to close down a bar to see my favorite queens. Luckily, Hamburger Mary’s in Clearwater has heard you and they are offering three great shows on Saturday nights! The first one starts at 6 p.m. (yes, while the sun is still out!), followed by shows at 8 p.m. at 10:30 p.m. Call ahead to reserve your table and see these girls turn it in the daytime!

A party? For me? No, the party is actually a fundraiser for Come Out with Pride Orlando, but they knew the theme was my favorite! The Decades party is back tonight at Parliament House in Orlando. I can’t get enough of these parties. In the disco ’80s music will be playing all night long, with ’90s music playing in the video bar and today’s hits for your enjoyment in the Infinity Bar. The acclaimed Footlight Players will be presenting two special “anthems across the decades” shows, at 10 p.m. and midnight. Cover charge is $10 and will benefit Pride.
