Queer Eye alum Jai Rodriguez visits Macy's in Tyrone Mall

jai_rodriguez.jpgSome days, (like all the days) when I'm on the couch in XXL pajamas eating lukewarm leftovers, searching for something to watch and finding only screaming toddlers and bitter housewives ("SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE SAID!"), I yearn for the simpler days. The days of delightful television manships that culminated in full fashion makeovers. The days of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

So it's with great glee that I tell you Queer Eye's culture vulture Jai Rodriguez is visiting Macy's in Tyrone Mall Friday in honor of National LGBT Pride Month. He'll be there with Alec Mapa, known as America's Gaysian Sweetheart, and comedian Christine O'Leary, plus the newly crowned Mr. and Mrs. St. Pete Pride.

Customers who spend $75 or more in the men's department that day will get a "Show Your Pride" kit and a photo with the celebrities. There will be snacks and drinks from Barefoot Wine and Bud Light Lime.

Meet Jai and friends at the store, 6901 22nd Ave N. in St. Petersburg starting at 6 a.m. Friday. Until then, I'll go watch Ted Allen on Chopped.

And now, for old times sake...
