What's HOT! Central Florida, September 23, 2010
|Written by Scott Spar|
Last Week in Review
I recently took a trip down to the Hotspots offices in Fort Lauderdale and while on the trip down and back, it gave me some time to reflect on some of the past events we've sponsored that we've all shared together: GayDays in Orlando and all of the fun we had at the pool (and the late nights, too!); GaYbor Days and all of the new faces that were seen in and around GaYbor as we played hosts to them and to make sure they had fun while in our fair city; St. Pete Pride, being in the parade and then seeing all of you, new faces and old, at the Hotspots booth during the street festival; the new Tampa Pride.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's you, our readers, who support and attend these events that make them so much fun and memorable!
The next event that HotSpots is sponsoring and attending is Orlando Pride in October (link) and I look forward to all of the old friends I will see there and the new ones I'm going to make! Until next week, much love to you all! Peace out... Scott
