Tabatha Coffey of 'Tabatha's Salon Takeover,' Erika Jayne lead GaYbor's Gasparilla weekend




Does the G. in G.Bar stand for Gasparilla?

Tampa’s busiest gay club, and its sister club The Honey Pot, will be slammed with Gasparilla after-parties on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, dance artist Erika Jayne (above; think Lady Gaga, sort of) performs at G.Bar; cover is $5, with drink specials and giveaways all night. Promo materials promise “10 porn stars with TONS of porn giveaways,” which is always a sign of quiet dignity.

If that’s not classy enough for you, head down the street to The Honey Pot, where on Saturday Tabatha Coffey from the Bravo reality show Tabatha’s Salon Takeover will do a live meet and greet and signing of her book It’s Not Really About The Hair. (According to her Facebook wall, she’ll also be signing from 5 to 7 p.m. at Hamburger Mary’s in Ybor City.) We know what you’re thinking, and no, this does not edge out Antoine Dodson at the Kennedy for the title of Tampa’s Hottest Messiest Party of the Week. But thanks for playing.

Then on Sunday, return to The Honey Pot for the Miss Gay Florida USofA 2011 pageant, featuring guest judge — you guessed it — Tabatha Coffey. This woman will be all over GayBor all weekend. Let us know if you see her, and if you can convince her to do your hair.
