The Fillmore Miami Beach
Friday, November 22
Jonathan Van Ness (or JVN for short) is heading to the Fillmore Miami Beach on Friday, November 22nd. The Gay of Thrones and Queer Eye star will be bringing his ‘Road to Beijing’ tour to Miami, and his show will feature a mixture of all of his varied interests beginning at 8 pm.
Known for his particular mixture of comedy and uplifting messages on Queer Eye, JVN’s show will feature stand-up sets and choreographed performances throughout. Apart from comedy and hair, JVN is known to post gymnastics and ice-skating routines on his Instagram page. Parts of these routines will be incorporated into his act, and his desire to compete in the 2020 Olympics in Beijing inspired the name of the tour itself.
Tickets are available for the show through Ticketmaster starting at $45 each.

The Normandy Fountain will be hosting the Vendome Disco on Saturday, November 23rd. The event is free and open to the public, hosted by the Normandy Fountain Business Association.

Joining Grau will be dance instructor Fernando Garcia, who will be hosting free ‘Latin side of Disco’ dance lessons throughout the event.
