The big fall and winter events are just around the corner and organizers of the Winter Party festival are seeking a few good volunteers to plan and assist with the event, Feb. 29 – March 5, 2012.
If you are interested in getting involved with the festival, which benefits the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force as well as a number of local community organizations, an informational reception will be held 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 in the upstairs bar at Score, 727 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
Here’s a quick look at some of the highlights of the upcoming week in South Florida:

We love the sultry sounds of singer Jennifer McClain and she’s performing live tonight at Smarty Pants, that friendly little neighborhood bar tucked away in the Time Square Plaza, 2400 E. Oakland Park Blvd., across the street from Target. McClain will be singing two shows at 9 p.m. and midnight.
Friday, Aug. 12
Fans of Sordid Lives, the hilarious movie and television series about a “colorful” Texas family, can relive the antics at The Manor tonight with a performance by creator Del Shores in “Sordid Confessions,” with special guest Jason Dottley, the writer’s real-life partner and star (“Ty”) of the Logo prequel. The show begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are available at DelShores.net. The Manor is located at 2345 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors.

Serious dancers head to Miami’s Discotekka on Saturdays where the party lasts well into the wee hours of the morning. Located downtown at 950 NE 2nd Ave., Discotekka features house and hip-hop rooms and performances by local favorites T.P. Lords, Vegas Dion and more.
Not a dancing machine? Chill out at Matty’s On the Drive, 2426 Wilton Drive. Beginning at 9 p.m., Saturdays are literally “da bomb” with $6 Jager and cherry bombs. Matty’s is one of the friendliest bars on the strip, so despite all the “bombs,” you’re more likely to be making love than war by the end of the evening.
