Movember events around the city

Here's a round-up of the Movember events (that I've come across) happening in the city. Also, don't forget that there's still a few days left to enter my Movember Moustache Mitten contest, as well as a chance to win a pair of Gala Parté tickets.

Good Medicine

My friend Stuart Mueller wrote in to give a heads up about the latest gallery opening being held at Mueller Art Photography:

The public is invited to attend the opening and sale of recent paintings by George Kush.

George Kush paints deeply researched views of this areas’ not too distant past. Historically accurate and skillfully painted, this is beautiful and important work. The opening is this Saturday 7-10 pm. As always – live music, refreshments and the artist in attendance. Better yet, every painting the exhibition is for sale.

Please call Stuart at the gallery for further information. 403.328.8170

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend is zesty

Oh joy! “Joie de Vivre,” Lethbridge Fashion Week’s spring theme, is set for this weekend at the Lethbridge Legion.

Also, Lethbian Love is not becoming a fashion blog. It’s just a time to celebrate old man winter releasing his stranglehold grip upon Southern Alberta! It’s kinda ironic though, since the Legion smells like old spice and scotch, not spring blossoms and pheromones.

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend returns

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend, where "cold gets cool," starts tomorrow evening with a hot & sexy fashion show, and continues the next day with an exclusive sale of original clothing and accessories.

The Lethbian Lover, who has an affinity for camel toe, will be taking in the show as per usual. It will be held at 7PM the Lethbridge Legion, so you may see me standing at attention.
