Sweet Like Candy - Part of a Lil' Sugah Weekend

When: Fri., Aug. 29, 7 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 31, 9 p.m. 2008

One of just a few LGBT night clubs operating in the EastBay, and the only one geared specifically for women, Club Velvet (3411 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland) is slowly making its mark by hosting pool tournaments, spoken-word nights, and softball games. Its cast of bartenders includes the adorable Mz. Amy, Miss Butterfly, and Miz Chris, all of who give the place a real force of personality. They'll host a series of dance parties and live performances this weekend, kicking off with Friday, August 22's VIP event at Velvet (featuring Kentucky Fried Woman, Jan Cross, Cherry Gallete, Brock Cocker, Mz. Amy, Raks Africa, and Bublinsugare), a Monarchs game after-party on Saturday, and a Sunday night dance party at Historic Sweet's Ballroom (1933 Broadway, Oakland). $5-$40; proceeds benefit Mz. Amy's adopted pitbull, Kyupi, who suffers from two torn ACL tendons.
