What’s Hot Central Florida: Everything you need to plan your week

by: Mike Halterman

whcf pride 2We’re finally moving into August, and I am counting down the weeks until Orlando’s Come Out with Pride celebrations! If you’d like to support their endeavors, there is going to be a fundraiser on Saturday at Parliament House. Come Out with Pride is growing to become one of the largest pride celebrations in the state and it is the support of the community that makes the event not just succeeds, but sparkle.

This week I was alerted to some events I hadn’t heard of, so I hope I’m not behind the curve too much and I can tell you about something hot and new. As always, e-mail mike@hotspotsmedia.com if you have an event that would be perfect for the What’s Hot Central Florida column (please note the events are chosen a week in advance). Lots of love to you all!

Thursday August 1

I love the ’80s? Do you? If you’re like any cool person, your answer was yes. At Sawmill Campground in Dade City, the entire weekend is a “Totally ’80s Weekend,” starting on Thursday. The weekend will have quite a few events, such as a costume contest, a dirty dancing contest, a Sawmill Divas show, ’80s-themed pool parties, and on Saturday there will be an ’80s prom with live music!

Saturday August 3

At Throb Nightclub in Sarasota, Three Olives Bubble vodka is sponsoring Ronny Barnett’s 35th birthday foam party bash! He spends so much time making sure your experience is very important, now it’s time for everyone to make HIM feel like a VIP. The party will be starting at 9 p.m. and will whcf 1include a show with Shontelle Sparkles and Jazlyn Alezae.

At Pulse in Orlando, there will be a special album release party honoring the Australian electro-pop duo Empire of the Sun, who are releasing their long-awaited follow-up album Ice on the Dune, which features the hit single “Alive,” already getting club play across central Florida! Free copies are available first come, first served, so be sure to get your copy while supplies last! There will also be chances to win copies in special games and raffles. If you don’t get a copy, order your own at empireofthesun.com.

Parliament House Resort in Orlando is hosting a “Decades” party, which is an official fundraiser for Come Out with Pride Orlando. No matter what your taste in music from the past is, you will most likely hear it tonight. Music from the ’70s will be played in the video bar, while in the disco it’s all ’80s music, and then finally in the piano bar it’s the sounds of the ’90s. The Footlight Players will also be performing at their normal times of 10 and 12, and keeping in pace with the fundraiser theme, their show theme this week will be “Decades of Music.”

Sunday August 4

Whether you are a lady or just feel like one sometimes, we all love to brunch! Hamburger Mary’s in whcf sundayTampa has a Sunday brunch buffet available for $12.95 per person.

Level III Nightclub in Ybor City is open on Sundays for “Juicy Sundays,” a hot Sunday event that’s back and better than ever! As the name suggests, Level III has three floors of newly remodeled party space, and the rooftop patio gives a great view of the Tampa skyline! DJ Charles Machado will be spinning today’s hits and there will be performances by the Juicy Drag Team. Doors open at 10 p.m., and don’t worry about a cover because there isn’t one (all night)!

The Broken Tusk in St. Petersburg offers up Bitchy Bingo earlier in the evening, with an early evening potluck dinner served at the bar, followed by bingo starting at 7 p.m. Meagan Towers is the bingo hostess for the evening, and she will be joined by Princess Arabella. DJ Pearl will be playing music all night for bingo players and clubgoers. If you don’t get a chance to play bingo with Meagan, don’t worry; this is a regular event that will be held again in two Sundays’ time.

whcf barcodesBarCodes in Orlando is going to have a super-steamy underwear night; if you get down into your sexiest underwear, the bartender will tell you what prize you’ve won, and I’m sure you’ll like it very much…maybe nearly as much as the other sexy customers in their underwear!
