Out for Business at Raclette’s
5:00 to 7:00 p.m., 537 Main St.
Buffalo’s premiere LGBTQ networking event is always a great opportunity to meet and greet, a chance to have a drink with community friends you don’t always get to see and possibly make some new ones. Even if you’re a fledgling entrepreneur or are just thinking about launching a small business, this is a great opportunity to find other folks in the community that can champion your efforts and potentially help point you towards success. This month’s mixer is at the Raclette’s on Main Street, btwn Huron and Mohawk by the corner of Genesee, and is sponsored by Mass Mutual NYS. Be one of the first 50 people to arrive and you’ll get a free drink from organizers.

Roxy’s Thursdays at Club Marcella
9:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. at 439 Pearl St.
In what’s bound to be a popular idea due to the lack of lesbian-specific spaces in town, Club Marcella is launching Roxy’s Thursdays this week – an ongoing weekly dance party aimed specifically at gay women, featuring burlesque entertainment from The Stripteasers, an all-female staff, a guest appearance from Playmate Miss Ashley Noel and an additional performance from Donna Rose & Plush Baby. DJ Kristen Heart will be spinning live throughout the evening.

ICOB’s Annual Back 2 Skool Fundraiser at Underground Nightclub

The tireless efforts of Buffalo’s Imperial Court are exemplified in this popular event which helps put backpacks full of necessary school supplies on the backs of kids in need.

Check the ICOB Facebook page for suggestions of where to buy, and spend Tea-time at Underground with the Court this Sunday to help top last year’s numbers!
