What's HOT Central Florida, January 13, 2011
|Written by Scott Spar|
Last Week in ReviewHello out there in Hotspots land! How's everyone doing? Great! Glad to hear all is fantastic! So, as I'm sure all of you boys and girls in Orlando have noticed, you've been seeing a lot more of me and you will continue to see more of me as Hotspots magazine concentrates on our presence in your fair city, events, restaurants and clubs. I had the chance to attend opening night of Wonderland at The Straz Center For The Performing Arts in Downtown Tampa. My friend Julius is in the show and hooked up Michael, Raina and myself with some VIP balcony seats. The show was fastastic - period. This show is on it's way to Broadway and it was an honor to be there for opening night. Thanks Julius, break a leg in the big apple - I'll miss your awesome hair and hey, watch those pins while on stage, they can get ya! As always, until next week, much love to you all, Scott.
Gay Events in Central Florida
Thursday, January 13th
If it's hot college boys you want, then hot college boys we shall deliver! Tonight, the Ybor City Social Club host's their weekly Gay College Night and as I said earlier, the boys at The Social are just that, hot. VJ Charles provides the music and the videos that will keep you dancing and for those of you who've got some "back", they have a booty shakin' contest at 11 p.m., so if you know how to shake what your mama gave you, enter the contest and give it a try! Doors open at 10 p.m. and 18 and up are welcome with proper ID. For more information on this and other Florida Entertainment clubs, please visit www.yborclubs.com
Don't worry my dear friends in Orlando, because I've got a college night for you too. The hot college boys in Orlando can be found at Pledge Thursdays at Revolution Nightclub. These boys seem to instinctively lose their shirts within minutes of walking through the front door as they make their way to the dance floor to move to the beats of DJ Joanie who spins the hottest in house, dance, anthems and more. There's also a show at midnight which is hosted by Angelica Sanchez. So as you see, there's plenty to see and do at Revolution tonight. There is no cover for those who are 21 and up if you get there before 11 p.m., so if you leave now you'll still have a few minutes to get in for free!
