What do you get when you cross drag queens with dining? A show not to be missed at metro Atlanta's newest club, Lips Atlanta, promising "delicious food, signature drinks and a Las Vegas style female impersonator show."
Lips, with venues in New York City, San Diego and Fort Lauderdale, opens its newest location in Atlanta/Brookhaven on Friday, Sept. 20. And during its opening weekend, on Sunday, Sept. 22, Lips hosts its fundraiser to benefit Joining Hearts, an organization that raises funds to help those with HIV/AIDS. Tickets are $30 in advance through www.joininghearts.org/lipsatl or $40 at the event with 100 percent of ticket proceeds to charity.
Lips Atlanta's address is 3011 Buford Highway NE, Atlanta, GA 30329.
Love on the Rocks, the annual Valentine’s Day-themed fundraiser for Joining Hearts, returns for its sixth year Sunday, Feb. 10, at Room & Board Furniture in West Midtown.
The benefit is the first of the year for Joining Hearts, a nonprofit dedicated to raising money for housing support for Atlantans living with HIV and AIDS. Joining Hearts also organizes the annual Change of Seasons spring dance as well as the namesake Joining Hearts, the summer’s biggest (and gayest) pool party fundraiser held each year at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park.
Kerry Loftis, president of Joining Hearts, told GA Voice said this year’s fundraiser should be the largest Love on the Rocks event yet.
