With another long work week nearing its oh-so-timely end, we can all focus on the weekend—Glory Be… and speaking of, the Queen Bey herself ushers you in for this edition of Gay Best Weekend Bets. #Beyhive

Before we begin this Bey-utiful post, a few friendly reminders…


Party like it’s “The End of Time”* and show that nasty hag Armageddon that you’re not going without a fight — BYT & ATG Present: End of the World Party w. RAC — 12.21.12

*because seriously, we all know the true “Countdown” is, and always will be, on New Year’s Eve — The BYT Fancy Schmancy New Year’s Eve Ball @ Former Spanish Ambassador’s Residence (yah, see… it’s gonna be serious)


The National Christmas Tree gets its “Green Light” (& Red, Blue, Yellow,…) turned on by Neil Patrick Harris — performances include The Fray, James Taylor, and Babyface (who cowrote “Best I Never Had” and is.)

Now, “If I Were A Boy” (or a Girl), I would probably find myself at Phillips After 5


Practice your twerkability, and “Work It Out” at Jalwa, DC’s LGBT Bollywood Dance Party @ Green Lantern

For those wondering to themselves, where can I “Get Me Bodied”? Well, The Looking Glass has you covered with Body Jam

The final Otter Crossing of the year is upon us — Held at the DC Eagle with an assortment of scruffy, furry, indie, alt, and non-furry lesbians in the mix, it may be hard “Fighting Temptations”


Now it’s time to pull out that “Freakum Dress” and be a “Naughty Girl” because Mixtape is hosting an Xmas Party @ Black Cat

Let’s call it organized barhopping — DC Santa Crawl 2012 is here, and if done correctly, it will leave you moaning “I Can’t Take No More”

“Ring The Alarm” — Roller Derby is going down @ DC Armory so don’t be afraid to let someone “Smash Into You”


Experience “Deja Vu” from Thanksgiving at the BYT Holiday Dinner @ Jack Rose Dining Saloon — choose your “Poison” as all of the holiday classics are presented in cocktail form

“Dreaming” about a career in the media, press, or PR field? Make your way over to Busboys & Poets for the National Lesbian & Gay Journalist Association’s Holiday Party. At the very least, you may meet a worthy “Suga Mama” (or Daddy)

If you were left “Speechless” by the discovery Marina & The Diamonds sold out, CTRL + Kick Kick Snare’s Party Bus to Baltimore may be your last opportunity to find someone selling tickets

Before you “Disappear”, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (though, you must have “Lost Yo Mind” if you weren’t already)

Now get out there and “Party”, my “Single Ladies” — Unleash that inner “Diva”, “Baby Boy” — the weekend is here; may the power of Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter strengthen you
