Every year For the Kid in All of Us has their annual Toy Party that ushers in and welcomes the holiday season in Atlanta. Once again this year the party was incredible fun and the mountain of toys was staggering. “Since 2003, For the Kid in All of Us has distributed more than 38,000 toys and gift cards through The Toy Party…” the For the Kid‘s website explains.
Guests enjoyed great music from DJ Vicki Powell and DJ Sed as well as tasty bites and delicious cocktails. This year For the Kid changed up the layout of the party by allowing general admission on the upper level. Previously this was reserved for the VIP section. This allowed everyone at the party to enjoy the view as the donated toys piled high below.

Seven talented entertainers took the stage at LIPS Atlanta last night to see who would be crowned the “Queen of Queens” at FENUXE’s Drag Wars 2013 competition. Leading up to Tuesday night’s event there were thousands of votes cast during the initial online contest. The top ten drag entertainers with the most online votes were invited to participate in the live competition and they put on a fantastic show!
All of the entertainers who performed were absolutely incredible, but it was Angelica D’Paige who was crowned this year’s Queen of Queens. The level of competition was a testament to how strong Atlanta’s drag community is. We have highly talented drag artists and entertainers in our area and they continue to wow us every week.
We would like to thank the wonderful and talented Nicole Paige Brooks for hosting the “Queen of Queens” with FENUXE’s own Anita Richcock. Additionally, we would like to thank our panel of judges: Joey Helton (AID Atlanta), Jim Marks (P.A.L.S.), Wes Berry (Joining Hearts), Dino Thompson-Sarmiento (GLAAD), and Jeff Carrico (Open Hand).
Here are some pictures of the fun on Tuesday night:

Britney fans worldwide must be going bonkers right now. First, her single “Work Bitch!” was leaked online and its release moved up a day. And then, Britney took over GMA Tuesday morning to announce her two-year contract with Planet Hollywood for a total of 50 shows that will premiere on December 27th of this year.
With her new 30-million-dollar contract Britney is following in the footsteps of Celine Dion who also has a so-called residency contract. So, what is Planet Hollywood saying about Brit’s new show?
“… Britney launches her most spectacular show ever at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Las Vegas. “Britney: Piece of Me” is a celebration of one of the most illustrious careers in music history, featuring 20 worldwide smashes from one of the most iconic artists ever to grace the stage. Audiences of all ages will be thrilled as Britney re-imagines her greatest past performances and offers a glimpse of brand new material from her highly-anticipated eighth studio album.”
After the GMA announcement the artwork for Britney’s new single “Work Bitch!” suddenly makes a lot of sense with a dressing room scene and the singer wearing Vegas’ signature ostrich feathers. And the title of the song pretty much sums up the enormous effort and amount of work it will take to put on a larger-than-life show. Britney is reportedly rehearsing five hours a day to get ready for her big Vegas premiere.
If you want a piece of Britney in Vegas you need to start planning soon because tickets go on sale on September 20th–that is after an Amex and Total Rewards pre-sale event. Of course there are always VIP packages and some include a meet & greet with the star herself. Pricing for the VIP packages hasn’t been released yet, but general admission pricing will range between $59-179.
There is no doubt that Britney is – oops! – definitely doing it again!
