Lots of stuff on tap.

Friday: the soulful sounds from songstress, Billie Rose. Saturday: Jorge Rodriguez, singer guitarist sings Latin Ballads. And for one night only, next Wednesday, August 13, see Jason Lavasseur, named 2008 Best Male Performer of the Year, in Campus Magazine.

In case no one has told you we are in the midst of the 3rd Sexual Diversity Festival, created by VIP Club member, Laura Reyes, who manages Barbara Porter Fashion Design. It's fair to say, there's a little something for everyone regardless of one's persuasion. Several VIP Club establishments are hosting events, like La Fonda Rosa Restaurant, on Abad San Antonio. On Thursday, at 5 p.m. La Fonda will be having an art exhibit and film. Friday night Market Bistro will have a full night of shows, buffet, DJs, dance, trans everything, and maybe even a couple of straight guys, like me. I think I'm straight, last time I looked I was. Saturday night is the big-big Sexual Diversity Fashion Show at Z Club. It's $250 pesos at the door, or $175 if you pick up your tickets at Barbara Porter's. Last year the fashion show received raves from all who saw it! Straight people loved it! Gay people loved it! Seeing the get ups alone are worth the price of admission. There's even costume competition for the most outlandish that includes a grand prize to go somewhere exotic for 3 nights and four days. I'm told there will be strippers, LATE! So, no matter if you're LGBT or H, there should be something for everybody. Don't worry, we won't tell your mom you went.

Whew! That was tough to get through but to change the subject, on Monday, August 11, one of San Miguel's greatest charities comes to the forefront in the form of "Taste of San Miguel." (not related to anything about the above.) Feed the Hungry feeds 4,000 hungry children every school day. They operate 34 kitchens in and around San Miguel. Their credentials and the body of good work for the community is incredible. Taste of San Miguel (the event) will feature oodles of tasty treats from some of San MIguel's best restaurants. The event is a bit pricey but for a great great cause. It's $650 pesos for all you can eat but a cash bar. The event will be held at "The Acuarion Salon de Fiestas," behind the Chrysler/Jeep dealership on the road to Queretaro. Tickets are available at Border Crossings, La Conexion, Monex or on-line at:

VIP Club member Deb Connor wants everybody to know she is marketing what she calls the best gas heater ever seen or felt in these parts. Hate to say it, but Winter is coming. For more info about her gas heaters contact Deb at

VIP Club Member Susan Page is gearing up for the first San Miguel Authors' Sala Festival. The event will introduceTom Robbins, in the flesh, as the guest speaker and Tom will do work shops etc. For anyone who has ever wanted to be in the presence of a big-time, downtown, major-league, fiction writer, this is your chance. Get all you need to know off the Sala's webpage:

Speaking of books. Denny Durbin who once owned and operated Agave Azul, awhile back, has penned a non-fiction titled: "Lazy Enchaladas." It's a fun read and Denny offers some solid advice to young and old and regales some about his enticing times when he lived here in San Miguel. The book is available at La Conexion and Garrison and Garrison books.

It's rainy season, make sure to wash your veggies.
