imageYou need to get out more. No problem. Motivate your senses with events from fine arts at the High and Alliance to burlesque at Eydrum, from shows by Barry Brandon to extravaganzas “All About Vag,” from AEN’s Mix & Mingle to club parties that don’t stop ‘til you get enough.

Bigtime art for a smalltime price. Half price entry plus wine; need we say more? Art in the City: Thursday Nights @ the High, 5 p.m.

It’s new, It’s monthly. It’s relaxed. It’s after-work cocktails. Hey, it’s AEN Mix & Mingle @ Bellissima, 6 p.m.

“All About Vag” pulls out all the stops to raise money to send Atlanta’s own burlesque superstar Vagina Jenkins (top photo) to London Burlesque Week. Burlesque, drag kings, circus freaks, bands and other performances make up what we can only call an extravaganza @ Eyedrum, 8 p.m.

Play, playa. Texas Hold’em Poker @ Blake’s, 7 p.m. Crazy Bitch Bingo @ Las Margaritas, 7:30 p.m.

Get lost down the rabbit hole. “Lookingglass Alice” continues tonight @ the Alliance Theatre, 8 p.m.

It’s baaaack. See what surprises and prizes are in store for this week’s Indulge (formerly Hydrate) Thursday @ the W Midtown, 9 p.m. View photos from last week’s relaunch, and read all about it.

Don’t stop ‘til you get enough. Thursday’s full Atlanta’s gay bar and club listings won’t let you, including Net Work video game and cocktails night with Traxx @ Obsessions, 10 p.m., Papi’s Café Con Leche Latin Tribal House @ Heretic, 10 p.m., The Shawnna Factor @ Blake’s, 10 p.m., and Princess Charles’ Fashionistas @ Burkharts, 11:30 p.m.
