VIEW PHOTOS | DJ Tracy Young + Toy Party Kickoff @ Jungle

imageCombining a deluge of holiday partiers and a Toy Party benefit as ingredients, DJ Tracy Young played chef, adding her magic to the perfect holiday dish at Jungle on the night before Thanksgiving.

Whether it was their last chance to get gay before seeing family, an opportunity to catch a slew of out-of-town visitors, or just a chance to take advantage of being off work Thursday, hordes of men and women alike hit the town for a cornucopia of gay Atlanta dance parties on Wednesday night.

imageAnd Jungle was ready. The event featuring legendary beats by Young (second photo) not only proved a festive appetizer for the big meal the next day, it also raised money and excitement for the Dec. 5 Toy Party, the annual gay soiree thrown by For the Kid in All of Us.

Young never fails to pack a dance floor, but one body not in the throngs was definitely Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” News of the pair’s affair and quick breakup made headlines earlier this year, and both of them are still making the most of the publicity.

imageThe day before the Atlanta event, Young posted a link on her Facebook page to a story about her Zolciak-referencing T-shirt, “I don’t make mistakes. I date them” with the comment “BIG mistake!” The day before that, she just wrote “Wow” with a link to this story about an interview in which Zolciak talks trash about Young, then takes it back.

A reality TV smack down was the only thing that we judge missing from the Jungle party. Of course, the “bi-curious” Wigged One shouldn’t fight with Young now that she’s pregnant, but you never know. We can’t imagine Zolciak quitting smoking and drinking for nine months either.
