What's HOT Central Florida, April 14, 2011
|Written by Scott Spar|
Last Week in Review
Hey everyone! Wow, what a week this is going to be! I've given you some great ideas below to help you in planning out your social calendar, and I think I did a pretty damn good job in doing so (Scott now pats himself on the back, lol). From GaGa to Bonnets and everything in between, this is going to be one fun week. Now that the weather is getting nicer and nicer, get out of the house and enjoy yourself because "life is a banquet and some poor suckers are starving to death". Hmm, I wonder, do any of you know where that quote came from and who actually said it? Tell you what, if you do, email me at scottspar@hotspotsmagazine and tell me. First person to get it right will receive a lunch on me at Hamburger Mary's in Tampa. As always, until next week...much love to you all, Scott.

Tonight, the queen of all that is sacred in the gay world is performing live! Yes, Lady Gaga's Monster Ball will be at the new Amway Center in Downtown Orlando! I just checked and there are tickets still available, and yes, even some really good ones if you're willing to shell out some cash. This is an event not to be missed boys and girls!
You loved her on Rupaul's Drag Race and now is your chance to see her live and in person because Miss Venus D'Lite will be at Georgie's Ailbi in Saint Petersburg. Miss Venus will be taking the stage tonight at 10 p.m. There is no cover for this event, or any other event at Georgie's for that matter, and they are open seven days a week until 3 a.m. each day.

Tonight, at the Saint Pete Times Forum in Downtown Tampa, Lady Gaga takes the stage! Now, you really didn't think that Miss Gaga would only perform in Orlando and leave all of you little monsters out here in Tampa did you? As I said about her concert in Orlando, there are still tickets available and some that are really good so if you didn't catch her in Orlando, now is your chance!
Directly following Gaga's concert, G. Bar is hosting the official after concert party! Come out after the concert and celebrate at the very first club that Lady Gaga ever performed at in Central Florida. Who knows, the Lady herself might even make a special appearance as she's been known to make surprise appearances after her concert at gay bars across the nation, and we all know she loves G. Bar.
