How time flies…I can’t believe that it has been one full year since I started working at Hotspots! In this past year, I’ve met so many different people and learned a lot about the Tampa Bay and Orlando nightlife scenes. I love the job I have and I am so thankful to have it! Here’s to another year of giving you the dish about fun events in Tampa Bay, Orlando, points in between, and beyond! Lots of love to you all!

Thursday June 12

Have you visited SAVOY Orlando just after work? Try it sometime! Sexy male dancers are front and center every night starting at 6 p.m. Enjoy the eye candy in one of four areas: the main bar, the disco bar, the locker room sports bar and the patio bar. There’s never a cover at SAVOY!

Joey Brooks and Kori Stevens host the amateur strip contest tonight at Bradley’s on 7th in whcf_thur_bradleysTampa! Meet them at midnight in the side bar near the diva stage! You get another chance to see Joey and Kori together on Saturday, as they perform in two shows, at 11:30 and 1:15, alongside Robyn Demornay.

This sounds like one satisfying weekend! Sawmill Resort in Dade City is celebrating the hot and sultry month of June with a “D.I.L.F.” Weekend, for men over the age of 45 and the men who love them! (I happen to be one of those admirers!) As always, Thursday is a Bare As You Dare night! Sounds delicious!

whcf_thur_alibiAre you a fan of the Tampa Bay Rays or the Miami Marlins? Georgie’s Alibi in St. Petersburg always has your favorite team’s game on. Come on in and enjoy some baseball on one of 29 high-definition TVs!

Saturday June 14

Liquid Tampa will be hosting Milk from RuPaul’s Drag Race season six! Be sure to get there tonight for a fabulous time. I know I’m curious to see her act in person! Visit for more information about cover charge and how to purchase tickets in advance, which will give you admission and a VIP meet and greet after the show.

Sunday June 15

BarCodes in Orlando has a fun underwear night each Sunday. It’s so fun that they can’t confine all the goodness (hee hee…) to just once a week! They also have an underwear night on Wednesdays. Get in your underwear on both nights starting at 8 p.m.! Don’t have any? Go to The Store @ BarCodes to purchase a sexy pair for yourself!

Monday June 16

You thought college nights were only for Thursdays? Well, you’d be wrong! Parliament House in Orlando presents Drink 101, a fun college night complete with hookah lounge! Addison Taylor hosts and DJ Scott Robert provides some of today’s hottest music. No cover before 11 p.m.

The best gay movies and the worst superhero movies meet face-to-face every Monday in June whcf_mon_gaymoviesat Stonewall Bar Orlando, as part of the Cult and Kitsch Movie and Cocktail Shindig double-feature! The movies start at 8:30 p.m.; tonight’s features are Girls Will Be Girls with Coco Peru and Varla Jean Merman, and Meteor Man with Robert Townsend!

Did you know that City Side in Tampa has a VIP program? They even have a night dedicated to VIP members, which is every Monday. (Of course non-VIPs can come too!) Ask your bartender how you can become a VIP member and what that gets you. You won’t be disappointed!

Wednesday June 18

Orlando’s community is responding favorably to a new gay night! One80 Grey Goose Lounge, inside the Amway Center, recently launched Taboo Wednesdays. Enjoy R&B, hip hop and Latin music in the inside loft and dance to electronic and house music on the rooftop. There’s no cover if you arrive before midnight! For VIP arrangements, call (407) 913-0180.
