Get wet at the ilume this Memorial Day weekend

It might not say so on the solar calendar, but we all know Memorial Day weekend is the unofficially official start of summer — and that means bathing suit season. Hey, I’ve been eating like crazy but  still know how to suck in my gut for the pool, and the ilume is amping up the pressure this weekend. The very gay development on Cedar Springs is hosting its first-ever Wet Party on Sunday from noon to 7. Tammie Brown from RuPaul’s Drag Race will emcee the event, then later in the evening she’ll be at the Rose Room for a show. There’s a $10 cover that benefits the AIDS LifeWalk Purple Team and ilume’s DragOns softball team. You must be 21 to attend.
