For listings of events and happenings around town, check San Francisco Weekly and the gay-oriented Bay Area Reporter, both free papers that are distributed weekly on Wednesday or Thursday—you can find them stacked at the corners of 18th and Castro streets and Ninth and Harrison streets, as well as in bars, bookshops, and other stores around town. Also check out the rather homely but very informative site “Queer Things to Do in the San Francisco Bay Area” at

Brunch is a Drag

Harry Denton's Starlight Room hosts a weekly Sunday’s a Drag brunch performance, where you can join tourists and locals to eat your fill of brunch classics from the buffet, then watch divas perform female impersonation acts and lip-sync Broadway tunes. While the attire can be a bit risqué, the show is less so—I took my then-11-year-old daughter and she loved it, as did I. The “brunch with an attitude” has two seatings every Sunday at noon and 2:30pm. The price of brunch is $45 per person, which includes entertainment, brunch, coffee, tea, and fresh juices.
