What’s HOT South Florida (8/22 - 8/29)
On Friday night I went by Boom for their Latin Fever night to catch the show hosted by Natasha Danielle Heart, who put together a cast of new girls to perform for you every Friday. It was great to see Natasha, all the girls, Chris, Sal and of course my sista Diego.
Later on that night Twist presented, direct from Australian Idol, Courtney Act, who performed to the South Beach crowd. The buzz was building for weeks, and Saturday night The Manor presented Deborah Cox live in concert to a PACKED HOUSE! Now I have seen The Manor packed before, but this was beyond compare.....you couldn’t move in any of the many rooms/areas they have. Congrats to Brett, Paul, Gary, Jason and the entire staff on once again hitting it out of the park!
In Fort Lauderdale, Equality Florida presented a Equali-T T-Dance at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa, and the boys came out to support such a great organization and to get some sun. In Miami, Sunday seemed to belong to Marytrini. First she had an all-star comedy show at the Manuel Artime Theater that brought together the gay and straight community for an afternoon of laughter and just plain fun. Afterwards it was Noche De Cabaret at Coliseum in Doral with her co-hostess La Raddisson and special guests Viva Mirage, Solange, Concha, Pavel and Herman. Once again it was a spectacular show!
