The LGBT Academy of Recording Arts
This past weekend saw more fun times under the big top at Stripper Circus on Friday night, Colette Carr performed on Saturday night and more Booze was flowing on Sunday night for Booze & Nutz.
Every Friday one of the hottest parties from West Hollywood invades Sin City. Stripper Circus has become one of the hottest weekly parties in Las Vegas at Share nightclub. This weekend the guys and gals played the craziest games on earth, Tip a Tranny and Dildo Toss. Win the game and enjoy fun prizes from free drinks to Swiss Navy lube products.
The good times continued on Saturday night as we had Colette Carr perform at Share. The singer/song writer performed a few songs off her upcoming album, Skitzo, that is due out next month. Her performance made Norm!'s Vegas confidential gossip column.
