Since I'm no longer throwing my oh-so-wrong Sunday brunch party, +Rehab+ with my pal Ryan, it's high time we see a new option for Sunday shenanigans. Ends up Harry Denton and Donna Sachet (the former "Miss Gay San Francisco" and "Empress of the City") are starting a weekly drag performance brunch at Harry Denton's Starlight Room called ~SUNDAY'S A DRAG~. So you can have some drag queen throw you some shade when you eat your eggs and steal your Bloody Mary when you're not looking. The drag mayhem, which means boas and wigs and disorderly behavior, begins on Sunday, May 21.
A salute to old-fashioned variety shows, Denton and Sachet are hoping their drag show brunch will revive the spirit of San Francisco's long-running and legendary Finocchio's, a nightclub known for its nightly drag shows. There will be a buffet and two seatings for the 45-minute performances, at 11am and then 2pm. The first seating at 11am will include a made-to-order omelet station and brioche French toast a la Denton while the second seating at 2pm features roasted prime rib carved to order and The Starlight Room Caesar salad. Each buffet will feature cedar-plank smoked fish, house-baked breads and fresh pastries, plus fresh juices, bagels, and seasonal fresh fruit.
